“Secret Sanctuary”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Your own road leading to what I can only describe as the ultimate paradise retreat that just oozes in elegant, rustic taste and SO much space. Surrounding this hidden gem is farmland, basically if corn on the cob and sunflower swaying is too loud for you then you seriously have sensitive ears! Fully equipped outside barbecue kitchen barn for late dinners watching the day turn into night with a French refreshment in hand, lovely swimming pool area and your very own barn owl!
What more could you want for a restful break totally detached from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I'm totally heading back to finish writing my forth book. We were a mix of a party from 18-47yrs and I'd never seen teens/young dudes get so involved with a red wine reduction, perhaps because the kitchen lends itself so well to big group preparations and the ice machine was at hand!
Needless to say the supermarket wines around this area are just luscious, along with the local produce, so you can just stay put or gently wander into the villages close by. There is no need unless you want to explore and see more than the local farmer on his tractor! Although saying that go to the hotel at Availles-Limouzine and get surprised at the fine dining, nothing to look at on the outside but boy they're good and reasonable for such quality food (Have house white-delicious).
Le Poteau's accommodation is breathtaking, it's been lovingly (& probably painstakingly) restored, sympathetically but with all your flash mod cons. This is a property you could stay anytime of the year at. We had a tremendous stormy night and were glad of it as we got to use the medieval style dining room, we then took our cocktails for the rest of the evening and watched the lightening for hours in our barn. Our vast vista's so illuminated, we stayed out there most nights as our weather was superb.
Even though we were 8 people, you never felt crowded, there are so many beautiful nooks and crannies in this property. Easy to be a party and easy to disappear into your own world. Liz and Chris were incredibly helpful when we booked and their House managers Robin & Peter are just great.
In a word - dream holiday - dream property (OK 4 words!) We'll be looking to return at the soonest opportunity, 1 week was not long enough.
