“Absolute gem in the heart of rural France!”
Reviewed February 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2015
people found this review helpful

By lucky chance, we found Le Claud d'Amour last summer after having a stressful few weeks resulting in us having to cancel our previous holiday plans.
We arrived to a lovely friendly welcome from Sue and Axel! The house is set in stunning countryside with views from every aspect and the first thing we really noticed was the absolute peace and quiet. Le Claud d'Amour is as good as it looks in the photos, there really is everything in there you could possibly need. Sue had even put us a welcome parcel of basic food supplies so we didn't need to worry about getting milk/butter etc. on the way there. It's quite a rarity to see a car drive past on the very quiet road nearby but we soon got used to a friendly wave from everyone passing by.
We were travelling with our 13 year old son who was very impressed with his room, the wifi speed and the huge TV in the living room - it's always good to have happy teenagers! He was even happier when he saw the pool, hot tub and table tennis table! Again, the views from the pool are just stunning.
Sue and John are the most wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are extremely knowledgable about the area and even came with us go-karting so we knew where to go and took us along to the evening market in Varaignes.
The area itself is beautiful with great cycle tracks that lead to all the surrounding towns and villages. Brantome is definitely worth visiting and kayaking is great fun and very safe in shallow rivers.
We really didn't want to leave this little piece of heaven on earth and we'll most definitely be returning.
