« Beautiful and spotlessly clean accommodation. Sue and Brian are wonderful hosts, very thoughful and kind. We loved the market at Riberac and Chalais. A nice restaurant in Nonac. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne is worthy of a visit. Saint-Aulaye was a thumbs up from the kids. » Bennetts family
« The property was in a lovely location, was quite simply and tastefully decorated, as well as being comfortable and well-maintained; its pool and surrounding area was lovely, with stunning views over open countryside. We were warmly welcomed by the owners, who very kindly provided basic supplies for our first night – they were on hand to help during our stay if we needed them but were in no way intrusive. The area is peaceful but is not far from plenty of amenities – we enjoyed tennis and kayaking at Aubeterre sur Dronne and the market at Chalais, neither more than half an hour away. We will certainly return for another holiday and would recommend it to friends. »
