“Beautiful tranquil place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Lovely gite with lovely family looking after it. Lake is fantastic, so peaceful, tranquil and lots of fish in it to catch. Grounds are lovely, lots of chickens, ducks, geese, sheep and horses around the place. Nice little swings and slide etc for children. Excellent value for money. Thoroughly recommend a visit!

“French tranquility with a British twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a wonderful time at Acorn Lake. The family are very kind and helpful and respect your privacy. The gite is very clean and convenient. The grounds are lovely for a walk (we had our dog with us) and the lake has some amazing fish. With the sheep, ducks, chickens and horses it has a lovely rural feel, but at the same time you're close to some nice villages with all necessary facilities. The area of Charente is very beautiful and romantic: rivers, castles, woods, wineries. And the coast is not too far away either. La Rochelle, for instance, is well worth a visit. To sum it all up: Acorn Lake is the perfect spot for a relaxed holiday in France.

“Peace and quiet in beautiful French countryside.”

From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. Dean and Veena are very pleasant hosts who are very helpful at all times. The property is lovely and the welcome each morning from the ducks and chickens is a pleasant way to start the day.
I fished the lake most evenings and managed to catch many fish up to 29lb in weight. The lake is a lovely place to spend some quiet time watching the wildlife.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a lovely area that I would recommend people to visit. Thanks again.

“Simply the Best”

We stayed at Acorn Lake for 5 days in May 2012. The gite was very comfortable and had everything you needed for a self catering holiday in France. Dean and Veena couldn't do enough for us to make our stay so memorable, they are both very friendly and hospitable. The gardens around the gite are beautiful with chickens ducks and baby lambs walking around freely. The fishing lake was the highlight for my husband having caught several fish. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Acorn Lake to anyone who wished to holiday in this beautiful part of France. Simply the Best - 10/10

My Wife and I totally enjoyed our stay, and could have stayed longer, the place was idealic, quiet and peaceful but within easy travelling distance of places to visit and things to see. The gite has everything that you need for a relaxing vacation, also there are lovely walks in the grounds and great fishing if, like me, you are into angling. all that is left to say is a big thankyou to Dean & Veena for a well needed, & relaxing vacation.
