We have just returned from the most tranquil, relaxing chambre d'hôte imaginable! Charlene and George are charming, welcoming hosts who have created a beautiful environment, very tastefully furnished. We stayed in the lovely Garden Room with its big and comfortable bed and little vine -covered terrace where we had early morning tea (fresh milk provided!!). We had a wonderful dinner... More

We thought this bed and breakfst was perfect. Charlene and George were excellent hosts. The location is stunning and our room was lovely. We had an evening meal which was very good indeed and very welcome after a long drive from Calais. If you are in the Poitiers area this is definitely the place to stay. (We really enjoyed looking...

La Maison, the main house, on a self catering basis is fabulous. Charlene and George are wonderful, yet very discreet hosts, who have provided us with the most relaxing 2 week holiday. The accommodation really was first class - spotlessly clean, modern yet in keeping with the building and so spacious. This is the first time we have holidayed in... More

Having found Fontegrive on tripadvisor, we were impressed with the positive reviews and the apparent approach that hosts, George and Charlene adopt to welcome and look after guests. Refreshingly, the reviews were spot on and we had a lovely time for the few days we spent near Melle. So much so that we didn't want to leave when the time... More

I enjoyed it so much that I stayed for three weeks. The food was excellent (best vegetarian food I have ever eaten). My bedroom was lovely with the most amazing views. The hosts extremely hospitable. I would recommend this to anyone who found themselves in the Charentes area of France.

This was our second holiday at Fontegrive. This time we were self-catering in L'Hirondelle. It was clean, comfortable, spacious and well-equipped. Our hosts George & Charlene Crawford made us feel very welcome and at home. There was a welcome pack of basic provisions to get us started - just as well, because we arrived on a Sunday evening. Our previous... More

This is a fabulous Bed and Breakfast with the option of evening meal. We had a fantastic, relaxing seven night break here, for the second time in a year. The rooms are spacious, very clean and exceptionally comfortable. The Garden Room has a view over the valley that is very calming and peaceful. Our food was fantastic, from the exceptionally... More

This bed and breakfast and gite was fantastic. Great food, and great company from the owners! Bedrooms lovely - nothing left out, and hospitality exceeded anything else we've ever experienced. Only problem we had that we actually had to leave to go home.
