“Stunning gite providing everything for a large group”
Reviewed August 23, 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We spent a week at Les Hirondelles - a party of ten (four adults, two teenagers, and four children aged 11-3) so quite a mix to satisfy.

The bedrooms offer a mix of set-ups (doubles/twins/bunk beds) which gave us great flexibility to suit sleeping arrangements, the kitchen/lounge area is big/open plan which allowed us to socilaise and cook freely, and the decking area and pool were both big enough for all ten of us to use at the same time with ease. At no point did we feel like we were on top of each other, which given the size of the group was really noticeable.


There are many great things about this gite but a stand out for me was the hangar at the back which means you can eat outside as a large group even if the weathers not great, overlooking beautiful French countryside for miles, as does the pool and decking area.

Les Hirondelles has been renovated and furnished to a really high standard, and has a great family bathroom, two en-suites and a downstairs toilet to cater for a big group comfortably.

Add to this two extremely helpful, warm hosts in Lesley and Toby and you've got an A* property if looking for a week or more to relax, socialise and soak up the sun. Excellent property and owners - many thanks for a wonderful week.

“What a great find for a holiday.”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A wonderful holiday with extended family ages from 8 to 77. Most relaxing holiday ever for me and others. Had all of our meals on the terrace watching the sun go down. Very good accommodation, excellent facilities and well equipped, good value for money. Lovely area of France to be in, plenty to do if you can tear yourself away from the pool and loungers. Good area for children to play in as well as the pool which was in constant use. Definitely recommend this particularly for families.

“Fantastic gite for a family holiday!”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was our first family holiday abroad and we couldn't have been happier with our choice - a beautiful gite full of character and charm in a lovely, peaceful location, yet only 5 mins from the local town with a big supermarket. The area is full of beautiful villages to explore, in particular Aubeterre which is only 10 mins away. We were lucky enough to get sunshine for the whole week and ate outside under the hanger every day. The decked area was a great place to relax, read a book and take in the views. We have 2 young kids and really appreciated the safety gate provided for the stairs and fenced off/alarmed swimming pool. Lesley and Toby were ideal hosts, friendly and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to this fantastic place!

“Second visit, we're addicted!”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed here last August and couldn't wait to come back. May can have mixed weather and we did but the barn didn't let us down. On the colder evening we set a fire in the wood burner and enjoyed a great meal with friends at the oversized dining table, cosy warm and welcoming. The hot days were spent by the lovely big pool and under the hanger which is fabulous for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with candlelit barbecues and late night star gazing. Perfectly appointed with very comfy beds, we can't fault this place, a perfect peaceful getaway within in access of Limoges airport where we flew in from Stansted on Ryanair. Looking forward to our next visit already! Thank you Toby and Lesley, great hosts x

“Just perfect in so many ways!”
Reviewed June 2, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This amazing barn has the perfect location. The views are magnificent and we spent wonderful long evenings under the the hanger listening to so much bird song.....so peaceful! Great to visit places like St Emilion, Riberac and Aubeterre to name but a few. A very spacious Gite both inside and out, spotlessly clean, great welcome pack and suited our group of 8 perfectly though we could easily have invite more of our friends. Very helpful hosts and we will be back! Thank you so much!

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a place! Have stayed in a few Gites around the region but nothing compares to this area. The Owners were so welcoming and the Gite itself was fantastic. Plenty of room for all of us and so comfortable. The views were stunning. Will definitely be booking to go back next year!

“Wow! We'll be back...”
Reviewed January 1, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Two families shared this gite and the space was ideal. Everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived and there was plenty of space for everyone inside and out. Lesley and Toby have made a wonderful job of this renovation with interesting features (esp the banister on the stairs!!), comfortable furniture and the kitchen was really well appointed. The two en-suite bathrooms were great and the family bathroom was again on the large side. It has a fantastic pool area with what must be one of the most stunning views in the Charente, and the covered patio was a real bonus if it was too hot, which makes the al fresco dining a pure pleasure! There is a great field at the top of the property with again spectacular views, but great for the kids to play any ball sports in total safety and out of our way! Lesley and Toby were there if you needed them and informed us of great places to eat. We come to France most years and this really is a stunning area with plenty to see and do. We can't recommend this place more highly and hope to be back for more wine tasting, markets and general all round chilling out next year!
