After a long journey this B7B was just what we needed. Susan met us and showed is to our room which was much nicer that we could have expected. Peter had suggested we ate at the little cafe/bar next door, which we did - we had been informed not to expect a great dining experience but Francine provided a meal... More

We spent a fabulous two nights at L'Ancienne Gendarmerie with Susan and Peter. The suite was beautifully decorated with plenty of home comforts and comfortably slept our family of four. Susan and Peter's hospitality was second to none and we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in their beautiful garden and their tasty breakfast. L'Ancienne Gendarmerie is worth making a detour for.

L'Ancienne Gendarmerie is definitely the place to stop over when visiting Charentes and surrounding area. Susan and Peter (the owners) could not have been more hospitable and have the highest of standards. I would rate their suites as 4 or 5 star standard - roomy and each with an en suite bathroom & sitting area - the standard of cleanliness... More
