Welcome to the Hôpital Saint François, a historic building located in the centre of the picturesque village Aubeterre sur Dronne, known as one of the prettiest villages of France, on the border of the Dordogne and the Charente.

Each apartment has a television with satellite reception and free internet.

In the garden there is a lovely shared pool with a wooden terrace all around. There are tables, chairs and parasols for all guests and sunloungers to relax and enjoy the sun. There is a barbecue for each apartment.

The oval pool measures 8 x 4 and is about 1.20 deep all over.

The Hôpital Saint François is located in one of the narrow streets of the small and pretty village Aubeterre sur Dronne, close to the much discussed square with its cosy terraces, shops and restaurants. The authentic building has been restored with the utmost care to keep the original features. The wooden stairs, the floors with old tiles, stone walls and fireplaces give this house its special character.

You can reach the Hôpital following the broad stone stairs that lead to the house. At the bottom of this stairs you can stop your car to unload luggage or groceries, after which you can park your car a bit further up the road on a small parking place on a square (free parking). Through the old wooden doors you enter the house, in which each apartement has its own entrance.

Next to the Hôpital you will find the atmospheric restaurant La Tapazzeria with its nice terrace, which is well seperated with a wooden palisade to ensure your privacy. Here you can enjoy lovely tapas and delicious pizza's from the original stone oven, without having to go far!
