Faye and Scott are the kindest people. The Gite was sparkling clean - in spite of the rustic farm setting. Expect your day to begin with a serenade of roosters, donkeys, dogs! This is a working farm with an array of farm animals. Perfect for families with children, but even without, we had a great time. The location was excellent for day trips exploring the beautiful Charente region. We went to Tusson, La Rochelle, Verteuil-sur-Charente and other charming villages. We cannot recommend this place enough!
The property on first impression was fantastic and set in a very quiet hamlet this did not change during our stay. The pool was immediately inviting and given the perfect weather we had for our 2 week stay was a perfect place to chill. The property is ideally located to explore the local hamlets and villages, larger towns and cities are around 40 mins away with La Rochelle and Ile de Re around 2 hours. Do look out for local markets and brocante always worth having a walk around. Look to see Angouleme, Poitiers, La Rochelle but also the smaller and more beautiful Chauvigny, Montmorillon, Nanteuil-en-Vallée, Charroux and Confelens. Roman ruins at Sanxay near Poitiers was a worthy trip. Use the country roads as much as possible as you miss so much on the main dual carriageways and motorways!
