We are superbly situated on the Charente, Dordogne, Limousin borders to offer a fabulous region of France with all its attractions combined with the fantastic accommodation we have.
Our aims are to provide you with wonderful opportunities to build lasting memories with friends and family; so important in making a good holiday great.
The location is so perfectly tranquil for rest and relaxation with the stunning pool and its views. Situated at the top of the lane on a hill traffic noise is a real rarity.
For those of a more active nature walking and cycling routes run from your front door – from easy to strenuous, rarely seeing another person or vehicle.
The range of wildlife, flora and fauna, is immense with opportunities to see wild orchids, hoopoe birds and many other rarities.
Local culture from chateaux, markets, stunning architecture in local villages and towns…a favourite treat is a local producers market banquet on a summers evening – all available within a short drive.
Other activities within easy reach include kayaking, horse-riding, golf, go-karts, quad-bikes.
Summer nights often mean barbeques but for those looking to eat out, a range of restaurants nearby to suit all budgets can be recommended.
To entertain you whilst you are here then alongside the pool, we have 2 acres of grassland for games as well as table-tennis, boules, etc for your use.
Both of us are very keen on giving you the best experience we can; we are continually looking for ways to improve and add to your holiday. The quality of the accommodation is high, and we strive to maintain things to that standard.
