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;...More

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!

About the neighborhood
The gite is in a small hamlet in the commune of Saint Saturnin, close to Hiersac. You are as likely to see a tractor as a car - and there are not many of either. It is peaceful and quiet but a short drive will take you into local villages and towns where you can explore the markets and restaurants or walk along the river banks. Jarnac and Chateauneuf are just 20 minutes away and Cognac a mere 30 minutes. Angouleme is an attractive ancient rampart city 20 minutes from here and the town centre is high on a plateau with wonderful architecture and a pedestrianised restaurant quarter with over 60 restaurants. We've tried most over the years and have some firm favourites we can recommend.
