“What a find! ”
Reviewed October 7, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I have recently spent a lovely few days in this beautiful gite with friends. Even though it was early October it was still warm enough to swim in the lovely heated pool and use the barbecue, fun was had by all.
The gite is beautifully presented with very comfortable beds and much thought has been given to make you stay as nice as possible.
I would highly recommend this gite for a perfect get away for all generations. Suzanne and Alan were very helpful in recommending local places to eat and visit, and I would definitely return, hopefully next year !

“Superb place to stay...very clean and spacious”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This place was right on the heart of the countryside but not so far that you couldn't reach either Ruffec or Civray within about 15-20minutes. You do a car but wherever you go in France you need a car and anyway how else are you going to get all your wine home
We will return to this house probably next year or the following year with our family and grandchildren. Lovely pool for the youngsters to play in and around.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I can't recommend La Croix Bardon enough we had a lovely time at this wonderful gite, it has a very well-equipped kitchen and a dining table large enough that all nine of us could eat together in comfort. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated, great showers and fluffy towels. It was fun to go and visit the chickens and Suzanne and Alan kindly shared some of their fresh eggs with us.

We enjoyed visiting some of the nearby quaint mediaeval villages and towns as well as day trips to Angouleme and Poitiers with the added benefit of coming back for a swim and relax by the pool. We fully intend to return and base ourselves at La Croix Bardon to explore more of the region.

Excellent place to relax by the pool and let the world pass by. The gite was beautiful. It was immaculately clean , very well equipped and very comfortable . Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home and the welcome pack was much appreciated after our journey. We will return!

“Beautiful, idyllic and relaxing.”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

With stunning scenery, beautiful gardens and a lovely swimming pool, the gite near Civray was the perfect family holiday. The property was well equipped and very comfortable, especially the beds. The gite itself was so peaceful with amazing night time views and sunsets. We enjoyed star gazing in the evening with a glass of wine.
The nearby town of Civray had some lovely bars and a very pretty church. One of the highlights of the holiday was a 5km canoe trip down the river Charente to the stunning village of Verteuil-sur-Charente.

“Perfect place for a family holiday”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Suzanne and Alan are great hosts and have thought of everything to make the house and garden a perfect spot for a family holiday. On arrival the kitchen table was set with a delicious welcome hamper, flowers from the garden and freshly laid eggs form the resident chckens. The interior of the house has been designed and decorated to a high standard retaining the lovely old stone walls. The bathrooms are modern and well equipped..
The baker is a short 10 min walk away and we ordered ou bread, croissant and the best brioche each morning for the following day.
The pool is a great size with a pool house and covered area complete with fridge, a gas barbecue and a large table perfect for late dinners in the evening sunshine.
Our hosts gave us many excellent recommendations for local restaurants, days out to suit all tastes from La Vallee des Singes to the very moving Oradour sur Glane and yoga classes in a wonderfull open barn.
Looking forward o our next visit.

“Beautiful, tranquil and comfortable.”
Reviewed July 27, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Four of us went down here last week for three days to celebrate a family birthday. It was wonderful. The house is lovely, it has been restored and fitted out meticulously and there is plenty of space inside. Breakfast on the terrace, lunch and dinner up at the pool house where there is a BBQ and a fridge. The garden is riotous and colourful. Mine hosts are delightful. Nothing is too much trouble. There are supermarkets in Civray, just a few miles away. Fill up at Super U, shop at Intermarche. Wish we could have stayed longer.
