We had a relaxed and comfortable stay in the cottage with free run of the very large, well kept garden. The cottage was perfect for a family of four (or five) with a well equipped kitchen and good size family bathroom. The area itself is rural and very peaceful with good local produce. Gwen, Martin and Bingley (their lovely dog) gave us a very warm welcome and had even done some research on local activities for us and the children - so we took advantage of the nearby Haute Charente lakes (a 15 minute drive away with a beach, boat/canoe/windsurfer hire and a few restaurants/bars) and canoeing on the Tardoire river. Overall a wonderful stay with great hosts - the perfect antidote to a busy week at the coast.
I would like to say that the service given by Belvilla and its representatives on sight were first rate. We were disappointed with the house and were told that half of the house was essentially blocked off to us as we were only 2 people. Whilst we were not interested in all the bedrooms at the property i did not expect to only have access to certain areas.
