    Additional amenities & feature info
    La Vieille Porcherie offers 125 square meters of living space. The large living room with beamed ceiling and exposed stone walls is well furnished with comfortable seating, satellite TV, CD and DVD player, WiFi and a wood burning fire. The feature archway through to the dining area also leads to a fully equipped, all electric kitchen.

    Your comfort is important to us and the building is well insulated against the heat (or chills) of the Charente, and for those cooler times, central heating is available for background warmth when more than the wood burner is required.

    A wide wooden staircase takes you to a spacious and bright galleried landing. There are two large double bedrooms - no single beds! One has a four-poster and the other is canopied. Each has its own luxurious en-suite; you cho...

    Additional Rate and Availability Information
    Please Note - for 2014 we once again will NOT be increasing our weekly rates, but we will be passing on the 'Taxe de Sejour' (The French Tax for Tourists staying overnight in a registered property) instead of us paying it from your booking fee. The 2013 rates have been 0.80€ per person, per night, and we are waiting for notification of the 2014 rates. This fee is payable in cash, in Euros, on your arrival.

    Bookings are scheduled weekly, from Saturdays with arrivals from 4.0pm and departures by 10.00am the following Saturday. Where possible we may be able to work with alternative days and times. Please talk to us if you need this.

    Weekly rates will be reduced for any 4 consecutive weeks booking and considerably lower if this is out of season. This can be especially beneficial for house hunting trips.

    A supplement of £49 per week is payable in advance for the use of central heating, though from experience this is only likely to be needed between mid October and early April.

    Pouméroux is a comfortable day's drive from any of the northern French ports and if you have time on your hands and want the pretty route, then there are plenty of overnight opportunities along the way. We can help with route planning and where to sight-see as you travel.

    If you are flying, Limoges (LIG) is the nearest airport for either direct flights from the UK or for internal connecting flights from Paris. The journey time from the airport to Pouméroux is about 45 minutes.

    We can collect you from the airport, but as you are most likely to need a car whilst staying at La Vieille Porcherie we recomend you arrange for a hire car to be waiting for you on your arrival. Try http://www.carhire3000.com who use a variety of agents to supply their vehicles.

An excellent 5* home. From the moment of arrival Barry and Carol were the perfect hosts. They were there for helpful advice and local tips and a sociable chat now and then. The house is immaculately kept and the bottle of bubbly was truly welcome. The pool, garden, woodland and fitness room were all available for use and we made... more

EXCELLENT! We were looking for great quality and found it - this place was so much better than our previous experiences with gites - the cottage has a wonderful combination of rural charm with modern luxury. Barry and Carol claim to go the extra mile and they certainly live up to that. We thoroughly recommend taking a break at La... more

From arrival to departure Barry and Carol made us feel very welcome and could not do enough for us to make our stay perfect. La Vieille Pocherie is the perfect holiday home to get away from it all. The gite is 5 star accommodation !!!!
