Our group of six friends from various parts of the U.S. met in Paris and travelled by car to heavenly Carmagnac where we spent 6 glorious days. ( By the way, it is possible, we learned, that you can train from Paris to Angouleme where you can rent a car which we would do next time. This farmhouse is charming, comfortable and truly a home away from home. It was especially good that we each had our own en suite and there was plenty of space for all of us. The weather was terrific...lots of sunshine even in October. We frequented neighboring Villebois and travelled to St. Emilion and Bordeaux for superb views and wines, to Aubeterre where the largest subterranean church in a Europe can be visited. and finally to Angouleme for supper on our last evening at Chez Paul. Richard and Jane saw to it that our every need was anticipated. We loved cooking in a fully outfitted gourmet kitchen and enjoyed the company of our hosts. We are leaving France with a large collection of happy memories. Richard and Jane - much appreciation for all you did to make our stay perfect. We are already dreaming about our return. Au revoir ‘til we meet again! Constance and Crew
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this rural setting. Claudine and Denis were excellent hosts and lovely people. We visited surrounding villages and were especially wowed by Aubeterre sur Dronne and Brantome. Also enjoyed market day in Riberac. It’s a rural area with a few restaurants 10 -15 mins drive away. Claudine was very helpful with recommendations and reservations.
The parking was right outside the accommodation along with a nice seating area. The beautiful pool was the other side of the house only 25 yds away.
We will certainly return. Thank you Claudine and Denis!
