“Perfect Gite!”
Reviewed July 9, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Lovely gite in a great location for touring the beautiful countryside. Everything provided for a perfect stay, very clean and well maintained. Nice spacious private garden, perfect for sipping a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.

“Lovely”
Reviewed July 3, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Excellent quiet location but within a short drive of Ruffec and the N10. The gite was very clean , nice decor and spacious. The welcome pack was the best we have had and pretty much everything that we needed was supplied. The DVDs were very welcome.
Outside was a nice private area to sit in and several tables and chairs. loved the loungers There was room for the car to be parked.. The gite was in a good location to get to many of the local attractions. So all round an excellent experience

“This gite was in paradise!”
Reviewed June 19, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

An absolute gem! Beautifully maintained and furnished to a very high degree. And plenty of nearby villages and towns of great interest that will just absorb you in every way. Really didn't want to leave this place which was in such a splendid and ideal setting.

“Beautiful gite in perfect location”
Reviewed May 22, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is a delightful Gite, roomy, comfortable and very tastefully furnished, with everything you need for a peaceful stay in a beautiful rural part of France. The welcome pack was a real surprise as were the great DVD's there for our use. We enjoyed our breakfast in one part of the garden, morning coffee in another and soaked up the sun in the afternoon and early evening in another - pure delight. The recommendations for places to eat were fantastic, the owners obviously have great taste, this is shown not only in these recommendations but also in the way the Gite is presented. We will definitely be going back.

“The perfect gite....”
Reviewed May 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A rather beautiful gite in a peaceful location yet only a few minutes drive to Ruffec. The gite has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard by owners. We had a lovely stay here, the bed was extremely comfortable and with a choice of pillows made for a great nights sleep. The kitchen has everything required including a dishwasher. Sitting on the patio listening to the bird song with a glass of wine...perfect.

“Excellent Well Equipped Gite”
Reviewed January 16, 2017 for a stay in September 2016

Having had many enjoyable visits to the Hobo Gite we recently stayed at the newly renovated Old Atelier Gite. The gite is well-equipped and the accommodation is spacious and comfortable.  The peaceful private garden provides a range of settings for relaxing and dining outdoors. 

We would not hesitate in recommending either property to family and friends.
