I found this house so wonderful, with everything one could wish for
The owners have thought of everything one needs to make a holiday a holiday. I would rebook this house every year, in fact I think I would be happy to swap it with my own
A lovely farmhouse holiday for 10 people
Our 7 day holiday at this farmhouse in Chabrac, Charente, France was great. The property is in a very rural area and is peaceful with cows in an adjourning field - the came to visit us to the delight of my grandchildren, in fact for all of us. The pool whilst not big but more than substantial for us. The property is big with ample room and all bedrooms have en suites that is a big asset. All facilities are good and lovely to dine out side in the lovely weather. The communications with Val was very good and her son Rob, who met us on arrival, was so helpful, nothing too much trouble for him. A very nice holiday in a lovely old farmhouse in a great location. Thank you Val and Rob.
Hi Joe and family,

Kind regards Val Godfrey & Rob Godfrey
Great family holiday residence
This a very well equipped house for all the family. Spacious with plenty of room in a beautiful location.
A quiet rural setting yet close to the main village and large supermarket.
Lots of exciting and interesting places to visit nearby and the house has plenty of leaflets and guidance of where to spend a day. The pool is perfect and plenty big enough to cool you down on the hot days.
Rob the owner is close at hand if there are any problems and nothing is too much trouble.
Only 30 mins or so from Limoges airport so not too much of a journey to the house. A car is a must as rural location.
Thoroughly recommend for a family holiday whether it's for a pure chill out or active with the kids.
Here in the Charente there are a lot of lakes that have man-made beaches with bars and restaurants.
The house is 30 minutes from Limoges airport, 40 minutes from Angouleme airport. Driving distance from Calais is approx. 8 hours. Driving distance from Brittany ports approx. 6 hours.
The town of Chabanais is 5 kilometers from the house. St Junien is 12 kilometers. Limoges is 40 kilometers.
The house is in an area known as Charente-Limousin, which has one of the mildest climates in France. Temperatures are pleasant from early June to early October.
