“very clean and comfortable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

We stayed in the Gite recently while we were renovating a house locally and felt very glad to arrive "home" in the evenings. L'Hirondelle was warm and welcoming, as were Gale and Chris.

What a fantastic 2 weeks we all had over Christmas!! A very warm welcome from Chris and Gail and Christmas Eve drinks was lovely! We would recommend this beautiful Gite, the hospitality and local knowledge from Gail and Chris was superb! A warm comfortable stay we all had, hot showers clean linen and towels were provided throughout our stay. We used the Gite to discover the local area, but there is a wonderful garden overlooking the beautiful views with a terrace which we used most nights (wrapped up off course). Bordeaux is well recommended by us and also a visit to Cognac and a tour to any of the Cognac Museums are well worth it. There is plenty to see in the area and the local amenities are just perfect!

Communications from Gail and Chris were great before we even turned up, and we were looking forward to our Christmas break. I would definately return here either bed and breakfast or the rental of the Gite as you are sure of a warm welcome and our expectations were exceeded to what we hav experienced else where in France before.

We wish Gail and Chris all the best for the future and hope to see them both again.

Even before we arrived, communication from Gail and Chris was excellent. A courtesy phone call, detailed directions etc The gite was very spacious,lovely and clean with plenty of mod cons. The internet and Sky tv made my husband a happy man! Our 7 yr old loved looking for lizards in the safe garden an the tranquil surroundings meant we all chilled out completely. Gail and Chris were on hand with advice if needed but not intrusive. We spent a very pleasant evening taking advantage of their dinner option- excellent value for money. Rochechouart,Brantome and Limoges are all worth a visit and the Night markets in the local area in August are very pleasant. A very rural place, so only go if you want some peace and quiet! Recommended for a good rest in lovely surroundings.

We found this charming little village and L'Hirondelle when we were house-hunting .
A friendly welcome from Gail and Chris as they showed us into the new 4bedroom gite with a beautiful king size bed tasteful furnishings and a nice ensuite bathroom.However the best was yet to come. At 7.30 we were invited to the dining room meeting three other guests and sat down to a sumptuous four course dinner cooked by Gail which included some very good wine serrved by Chris.The dinner was full of interesting chat and we didn't go to bed until 11.30. After a good nights sleep we enjoyed as delicious continental breakfast and said our farewells after paying the bill of 100 Euros.What amazing value.
Gail and Chris really are very professional and do everything very well.We recommend L'Hirondelle with complete confidence. An exemplary guest house in every respect
