    Walnut Tree Cottage is on the edge of a small hamlet surrounded by beautiful countryside. We fell in love with the cottage on sight and hope you will too. The house is spacious: it is a real home not a holiday gite. It is comfortably furnished and sleeps up to five in two bedrooms. The sitting room retains many original features such as the traditional Charentaise fireplace, beams and oak floor. The old 'sejour' is a kitchen/diner with comfortable lounge seating around the wood burning stove. The en suite master bedroom has a double bed whilst the other has twin beds with plenty of space for a foldaway bed, shower and loo adjacent. We also have a cot. Each bedroom has a mirror and a hair-dryer. There 3 steps plus a door down to the bedrooms which separates them from the living a... more

This cottage was recommended to us by some friends and we were not disappointed. We stayed from the 29th of June to the 12th of July and so were luckily able to enjoy the house in the height of summer. The location is beautiful and the house itself was magnificently presented- we could not fault the presentation or the cleanliness... more

The cottage was clean and tidy and had all the basics we needed. Definitely value for money and plenty of lovely beaches, churches and places of interest within... more

Had a great stay here. We didn't know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised. The cottage is in a great location with easy access to everywhere - although a car is necessary. The cottage has loads of rustic charm and, as in the previous message, is so very 'French'. We slept really well and felt very safe -... more
