“Lovely place for a family holiday”
Reviewed January 8, 2017 for a stay in August 2016

We spent a fortnight in this pretty, peaceful place with our two young children (aged 7 and 3) and we all loved it. The setting is quiet and rural but is only a short drive to Angouleme and a good base for exploring the area; the house itself had everything we needed and it was great to have the garden for the kids to play in and to be able to eat outside (which we did almost every day, and relaxed in the garden every evening).

June and Anthony were lovely - they live next door so are often around but never intrusive, only super helpful and friendly, and we ended up chatting like old friends with June most days. I'd recommend l'Abeille highly and hope we'll be back again one day!

“Wonderful place to stay. Has everything you could want”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The owners have made this gite extremely comfortable with all equipment one might need. The rooms are nicely furnished and very comfortable. It is a very relaxing peaceful place and there is also a garden to use with loungers and large table and chairs to eat outside. The gite is in a small village with lovely old stone buildings and very close to the local village which has a small supermarket, pharmacy and bank. Nothing was too much trouble and June and Anthony went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to provide a friendly relaxed atmosphere. We explored the various places to visit, a visit to Paul Giraud Cognac farm a must. We had a lovely personal tour and explanation of the distillery and had to return to get a second bottle of Pineau! There is a lovely beach an hour and half away which we went to. At this gite one can either go out exploring the many places of interest or just relax in the peace and quiet and comfort.

So glad you enjoyed your stay and the area & we enjoyed your company too. I second your recommendation of Paul Giraud - fantastic cognac and pineau and a charming family. We have some of his cognac in our cellar!

“Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed with June & Anthony in August 2015, with our two young children. In short, we had a fabulous time. The gite is located extremely close to a large town (Angouleme) with all the associated amenities (shops, cafes, supermarkets). There is also a brilliant swimming complex close by. And although the sea is a little further afield, we made 3 trips to St Palais-sur-mer, La Rochelle, and Vaux-sur-mer which are all extremely beautiful. Anthony and June are also lovely hosts. In short, I would highly recommend this to families.
