About Dave & Wendy Whiting
Dave & Wendy moved to France with their two dogs when Dave retired last year. It was a fairly snap decision but one we have certainly not regretted at all. We love the slower pace of life and enjoy pottering around our property, improving it as we go. We are very proud of how we have brought the farmhouse back to life and would very much like to share our beautiful location with you - you will feel like you are truly sitting on top of the world.
Dave & Wendy Whiting purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Dave & Wendy Whiting chose Édon
You really need to come to truly appreciate to beauty of our location - we feel we have not yet managed to take any photo that does it proper justice but all our visitors have been blown away with the breathtaking views and the magnificent sunsets you are able to enjoy due to our elevated situation. The night sky on a clear night is full of the brightest stars and the peace you will experience is verging on spiritual. But don't take our word for it - come and find out for yourselves.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are ideally placed to drop into the Dordogne with its beautiful countryside and picturesque villages or you can travel 30minutes up the road to the capital at Angouleme if you want to dip into the city environment for a day with its numerous bars, restaurants, shops and museums. Alternatively, drive across country to the vineyards around Cognac etc if you fancy a day wine or Pineau tasting. We have many famous tourist attractions within 30-40 minutes drive away, not to mention the fairytale style chateau down the road in Villebois Lavalette which you can also see from your cottage or pool.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had a really relaxing holiday in the beautiful Haute Faye. We didn't want to leave! Thank you Wendy and Dave for letting us stay and for your first class hospitality.
Peace and quiet
My husband and I enjoyed a very relaxing week at this cottage. It suits two people perfectly and the swimming pool was perfect for the hot afternoons. Wendy and Dave were very hospitable and friendly and their two dogs were a delight.
A home away from home.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage.
The cottage is very charming and has all the traditional features but it manages to incorporate all the mod-cons without spoiling the overall feel of the place.
Wendy and Dave are wonderful hosts and it is very handy to have help and local knowledge right on your doorstep
We fell in love with Archie and Eric (the dogs) and they were no bother to our own dog at all.
We would highly recommend this place and would definitely go back 😊
Completely wonderful place to stay
We’ve just had a perfect two week holiday. The Gite was a good size, very comfortable and beautifully cool even on the hottest days. The pool was great, and we thoroughly enjoyed cycling in the local area. Dave and Wendy couldn’t have been more welcoming and kind, and we can’t wait to go back again.
A comfortable Gite
Very well positioned with fantastic views. Host were very accommodating and friendly. The gite was clean comfortable and full of character
We absolutely loved our time at Wendy and Dave's property, it's perfect for a quiet getaway. The views are amazing and its in a beautiful part of France, there's so many gorgeous villages and towns to explore nearby (although be prepared to drive at least 30-45 mins to visit things, but don't worry the drives are all beautiful!)
Wendy and Dave were great hosts, great communication before our stay, they let us check in hours before the usual time and Wendy even helped my partner organise a masseuse to come to the property for my birthday, The welcome pack provided is a very generous touch and even though Wendy and Dave live next door, you feel like you have enough privacy.
The icing on the cake is Eric and Archie , the dogs, they absolutely made our experience (especially Archie!), so great to have them run to meet you in the mornings or when you come back from a day out. Wonderful dogs!
We loved every minute of staying here, we will be back!
P.s Wendy, you should let people know that theres boardgames etc in the dresser, we didn't find them until the second to last night. :)
