A really enjoyable and relaxing stayin our well equipped and comfortable room. A secluded, comfortably appointed base from which to enjoy the surrrounding French countryside. Karen made us feel very welcome,, with nothing being too much trouble; great breakfast! We are certainly hoping to return soon

Breakfast was a delight, lovely fresh bread and yummy croissants. You will find a well equipped gym and a swimming pool. Thank you to both Karen and her husband Richard for making our... More

Unfortunately, due to the death of a close family member, we had to cancel our one-night reservation at Le Four à Pain. We gave 4 days notice, and were still charged full whack for the two rooms I had booked. I did try to re-schedule our reservation but was told that the rooms were not available on the alternative date.... More

I can only add that your room reservations were for a single night on the 13th of August and you wanted to re-arrange for the two rooms for the bank holiday... More

My two children and I stayed only one night, but we loved this stay. We had a very very spaceful room with one big bed and an additionnal bed. The bathroom was very clean and confortable. The garden is a delight for the eyes. The swimming pool (safe) is very pleasant. Karen and Richard were very welcoming, as the little... More

The region is worth visiting for more than 1 day. And Le Four a Pain is an excellent "base camp". Clean rooms (acoustic insulation could be better but it doesn't stop you sleeping :) ). Friendly hosts. And a refreshing pool ! The security-dog ("mouse") keeps any youngster busy :) .... (( you'll understand when you visit ))

‘We spent a blissful few days at Le Four a Pain and wanted for nothing. The rooms are immaculate, beautifully presented and this, coupled with the charming gardens made for a very special break. Karen is the perfect hostess, always on hand to offer advice if needed. Breakfast in the gorgeous dining room is a pleasure and we should add,... More

We are just back from a 10 day break in France driving around the Charente Maritime and spent 3 nights at the Four A Pain and did not want to leave. Owners attentive and keen to please. Gardens beautiful by day and by night. Rooms are more like suites than bedrooms, you have your own keys to come and go... More

Nice hosts who are english and very helpful. Room was lovely and spacious. AS room was in an old barn you could here the other guests walking about but not late at night so was not obtrusive. For an over night stay it was perfect. We arrived in dark and left in dark early in the morning so could not... More

Mu husband and I stayed au Four a Pain for 3 nights (in July 2012) and we loved the place! Very spacious and clean bedroom, gorgeous garden with a pool, beautiful breakfast, quiet location only 10 ms from St Jean.. We would go back if we have a chance. Thank you for a wonderful stay to the owners.

500miles, three course dinner, bottles of wine and another idyllic night spent at Le Four a Pain. Richard and Karen are perfect hosts and the place is a little gem. Thanks
