The essence of this gite is relaxation combined with easy accessibility to the true french countryside. We can organise bike hire or simply hang out in the garden and swim and work on your tan. There are plenty of family days out or venture further for winery trips, just take in South West France as you wish. Our guests love the village for its authentic atmosphere and proximity to good supermarkets, shops and some great local restaurants. Of course castles, riverside, fishing and swimming lakes are all close too.. wake to a morning coffee with a fresh croissant at just a stroll from the house. The house has a relaxed interior in keeping with the charente stone cottage style, you will find all the necessary amenities to enjoy in house dining, or organise a pedicure with our house ma...
