  • It’s the second time we stay at Martine’s house and it really has been as magical as we remembered it the first time. Martine’s house is charming, full of thoughtful details and a place to disconnect from the city. Surrounded by natural landscapes and a lovely town it has become our favorite Airbnb experience by far. We will be back whenever we have the chance. Thank you again Martine!

  • We had a brilliant 2 night stay with our 3 children. It’s a beautiful and peaceful setting and the property has lots of character. Our children loved the horses and enjoyed playing in the gardens. Especially the sand pit and play house. The pool was a huge bonus for the hot weather we had! We went for a stroll down to the lake and found lots of interesting bugs and insects along the way. The hosts were friendly and made us feel very welcome, we would love to return again in the future!

  • Myself and my husband stopped at Marilyn and Jean Pierre's Airbnb for two nights. We were met by Jean Pierre who was very kind and welcoming and showed us around the accommodation. We found their airbnb bigger than we anticipated and everything was comfy and clean with wonderful countryside views. The kitchen area had everything we needed and Marilyn and her husband even made sure we had some essentials in the fridge on our arrival (A special thank you for the orange juice and brioche). We would highly recommend Marilyn's place for anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing place to stay whilst exploring the local area. Merci à nos gentils hôtes Jean-Pierre et Marilyn. Jean-Pierre nous a très bien accueillis et votre Airbnb était un endroit charmant où séjourner pendant que nous étions dans la région. Merci beaucoup pour ce séjour agréable.

  • This is a fabulous gite to stay for a night or a month. It is really well thought out, carefully and tastefully decorated and very well equipped. It is very peaceful and has stunning countryside views from the living area. The bed was comfy and spacious and the bathroom is modern, light and lovely to use. I really nice touch from Marilyne was to have put some milk, butter and orange juice in the fridge and some brioche and jam on the table for us to get us started. There was also tea and coffee, all we needed to get settled in and feel at home. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay here again.

The open plan living room, well equipped kitchen and dining area are light and bright. The bedroom is spacious with plenty of storage. The en-suite bathroom has a spacious shower and heated towel rail. We live on site and look forward to welcoming our guests.
    We grow some of our vegetable and herbs and keep chickens and ducks providing fresh eggs (most of the time) which our guests are welcome to help themselves to. As our orchard becomes more established we hope there will be an abundance of seasonal fruit to enjoy.

The Monday morning market is ideal to purchase fresh local produce or just sit and enjoy a coffee.

  • Julie's Le Coin is modern stylish and extremely well equipped. It makes staying there so easy and relaxing. Plenty of hot water, a super comfy bed and fresh eggs from the garden: what more could you ask for? The welcome pack that was there when I arrived meant I could settle in without needing to go and look for essentials, which means it added to the whole pleasant experience. Julie and Jim are top hosts and so friendly. This is a highly recommended stop over, so well situated to explore this part of France.

There are really all the necessary equipment. The land is very big with a beautiful view of the surroundings. It is very soothing and relaxing. It is a very beautiful region where you can relax, visit (typical villages, caves ...), do sports (cycling, canoing ...) ... Julie and Jim are a very charming, welcoming and approachable couple. They are very discreet and available at a time. We loved chatting with them. The small details and their attentions made our stay unforgettable. Thanks for everything Julie and Jim.

  • We have just come back from a wonderful stay in 'La Belle Masion'. It really is a special place with excellent hosts. Despite arriving later than planned, we were met by Donna who was very understanding and showed us to our accommodation. The house itself is absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous French chic, rustic yet elegant and very tastefully decorated. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need plus a washing machine which is very handy if travelling with children. All the beds had lovely fresh, clean bedlinen and the whole house was spotless. As soon as you walk through the door you can relax and just enjoy being in this fantastic place. The house sits within a small complex of other gites also owned by the hosts, in lovely rolling countryside dotted with pretty houses and farm land. The nearest local town 'Chalais' has a Chateau, local market and supermarché. The whole area is incredibly peaceful with just the sound of the local insects at night. The amenities on site are excellent with a great pool where you can sunbathe on loungers or have lots of fun splashing about. There is a games room with table tennis & football plus board games like frustration and Cluedo. There are also toys for younger children. Chris & Donna provide bikes (with helmets) for guests to use. Our two boys especially liked riding round the grounds before cooling off in the pool. Outside the house there is a BBQ, table and chairs. We enjoyed sitting outside on the balmy evenings with a glass of wine looking at the vast aray of stars. Chris & Donna have hung fairy lights on trees and bushes which gives the whole outside space a magical feel. There is more than enough on site to keep families happy and entertained but there is also plenty to do in the area if you wish. Aubeterre Sur Dronne is a short drive away and voted one of the prettiest villages in France. Slightly further (about an hour) is Cognac where we visted Chateau Royal and also La Rochefoucauld with its fairy tale Chateau is worth a visit. Chris, Donna and their family are really lovely hosts, they get the balance right between allowing guests privacy but also being available and were very friendly and helpful. This is an excellent place to stay which our family of 5 would highly recommend to anyone looking.

    Caroline2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • A truly beautiful place to spend a relaxing couple of weeks. Our gite had everything we needed and was really comfortable. Donna, Chris and family couldn't have been more welcoming. We're already looking forward to our next visit!

    Georgie2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Donna are great hosts and so much more. Their friendliness and passion for hospitality was clearly evident during our stay and made our time there even more enjoyable. The house, pool, gardens and everything about Les Bruets is beautiful and they've really put their own personalities into the place, with great results. Yviers is a lovely, quiet getaway spot, Chalais market is amazing and there are plenty of lovely villages and towns to visit. But coming back to Les Bruets each day brings a sense of calm and tranquillity. A wonderful place!

    Greg2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • We loved La Belle Maison and could have stayed longer than the week that just flew by. The pool is wonderful and perfectly maintained. For the home cook the kitchen had many utensils including great sharp knives! Thank you Donna and Chris for your lovely hospitality.

    Jennifer2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • We really liked the accommodation. The house is comfortably furnished (everything is clean), the kitchen was well equipped and the surroundings worth seeing. Chris and Gary are great hosts and fulfill every extra request! We would come back on every case.

Quand vous arrivez dans le village, il faut prendre la première route à droite avant de passer l'église (difficile de la voir car aucun panneau si ce n'est une vielle publicité "Singer" fixée sur le mur de la maison qui fait l'angle de la route). Vous faites ensuite 300 m et vous verrez le panneau "La Faurie" sur votre gauche. La maison est la 2ème à droite, légèrement en retrait de la route; elle a les volets verts, elle est accolée à une maison aux volets bleus.

  • This is one of 4 gites , in a very quiet, rural area about 3 miles out of Chalais. Look out for Chez Bouton sign on the roadside. A little way up the lane there is a sign for Bruet gites on the left. It’s very peaceful and situated in a rural location, with a lovely pool. We enjoyed the bikes and did an hour around the gites, not too hilly. Donna and Chris are very helpful and friendly, there is an air of calm about it. Chalais is a small town with a fab chateau. Well worth taking the guided tour, one of the best ever! It’s only over an hour to the North Dordogne area of Brantome and nearby Aubeterre has a stunning subterranean church. It’s magnificent. The gite has basic commodities in the kitchen, and is very comfortable. Highly recommended.

  • The stay at Chris´s place was super nice. Our little daughter had a lot of fun playing with Chris´s daughter and all the wonderful toys at the AirBnB. We felt very welcome and enjoyed visiting the area with the very useful advice from Chris and Dona. Thanks again!

  • Chris and Donna are the most wonderful hosts. They have a beautiful, charming property with lots of magnificent, mature trees. Our unit had a generously equipped kitchen, pleasant living room and comfortable bed. The big pool is a great place to lounge around and meet other guests, and the hosts go out of their way to make you feel at home. We have no hesitation in recommending this place in the highest possible terms.

The location is outstanding and the view is stunning French countryside, sunflowers and fields all around. The grounds have an abundance of fruit trees, apples, figs etc. The swimming pool is fantastic, very clean, kept very well. Lorraine and Nick are wonderful hosts providing lovely special touches including homemade yoghurt, bowls of figs and walnuts. They made our time very special and provided lots of privacy.

    La Roche-Chalais, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France

    Sweet Nothings is a traditional Charentaise farmhouse set in almost a hectare of land deep in the rural landscapes of South West France. Surrounded by vineyards, wooded valleys and charming villages, we provide an ideal base for families and those who love nature, animals and the good life! Relax by the plunge pool, sit in the garden or stroll around the orchard. Guests can enjoy the animals, collecting eggs from the chickens, petting the horse, donkey, dog or cats!!
    We have 3 twin or double rooms, with an option for 2 adjoining rooms which can make up a family suite. All rooms are ensuite and have tea and coffee making facilities. The house has rustic charm and is very welcoming with a warm family atmosphere. Food is sourced locally wherever possible, and our breakfasts include homemade granola and jams, local fruit and artisan bread and pastries.
    Saint Vallier is a small village in South Charente. We are on the edge of the village and have no immediate neighbours. There are great cycling routes through the village, and some nice local walks. In short, it is quiet and tranquil.
  • Sweet Nothings is more than just a place to stay. It's really its own experience. Natalie and Lawerence will open their home and hearts to you to whatever degree you wish. You'll get tips on where to go and how to get there, Natalie will call and make restaurant reservations (she knows everyone personally!) and she'll feed you the most fresh and delicious meals you can imagine. Her homemade jams are fabulous, as is her homemade granola — and much of the fruit comes from the backyard (figs, cherries, apples, pears!). Every room has its own bathroom, which is really nice. Linens are freshly ironed and the rooms (simple farmhouse rooms) have everything you'll need ( if something is missing, you only need to ask). On a hot summer day, a dip in their plunge pool helps takes away the day's heat and cools you off for the evening. (There's no AC). On my last day, Natalie gave me a lesson in her natural dying technique. It is a don't-miss experience and I'm hoping she gives workshops next summer. Sweet Nothings is a real, functioning farmhouse, as well as a BnB. If Natalie and Lawerence are not taking care of you, they are harvesting hazelnuts or fruit, making jam and chutneys, working in the garden, up-grading the property, or taking jobs off the property. If you don't like dogs or have allergies, this is not your place. The dogs are a part of the family. I loved being a part of their happy, loving family and I am so happy that I found their listing.

  • This is a cozy, comfortable place to stay. Breakfast was lovely.

    Alexandra2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • The house and garden are lovely. There is a very nice lounge to sit in and breakfast was very good. It is well decorated throughout. My bedroom and bed were big and comfortable and clean. The bathroom too was excellent. The shower is easy to use with plenty of hot water. The road outside was quiet after ten and no ear plugs were needed; and I'm a light sleeper. The stairs are wide and easy to use. It is five minute walk to the village with a nice 'French' bar with seating in the square. I had an excellent salad in the 'Italian' style café/bar which has seating across the road where I found excellent free WIFI!

    Nik2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Meet the expectations!

    Conesa2018-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place is lovely and has beautiful wood and details inside. My room was large and the big window allowed the cool, fresh breeze inside. Nice towels for the bath, bedside lamps, and ear plugs to erase the noisy traffic outside. The breakfast was delicious! Croissants, juice, milk, water, choice of a hot drink, ham, meats, cheeses, jam, honey, etc! The walk to the center of town is about 10 minutes. I didn’t get to meet Sarah until the morning, but she is a lovely young woman. Overall, I enjoyed the place, and the castle is walking distance too!

    Rosalinda2018-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed with Sara and Mark for 2 nights. Great hospitality and spotless clean.

    Bram2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah & Mark are fantastic, really friendly hosts who instantly make you feel welcome. The place is gorgeous, spotlessly clean and every detail thought of. My stay exceeded my expectations and real life is even better than the photos. The bed & duvet super comfy that you sleep like a dream and even the bath amenities are luxurious. The breakfast buffet they set up (even when it was only me) is extensive and delicious - and someone always there to greet you in the morning with a friendly smile. I wish I could live here! Highly recommend without hesitation.

The large garden has a swimming pool, plenty of spots to sit and relax, great views out over the surrounding countryside. For young guests there is a trampoline, swings, a wendy house and lots of space for games.
    The gite is six kilometres away from the lovely small hilltop town of Brossac.

If you are looking for culture, there are many historic towns, chateaux and monuments to visit. If you are simply looking to relax with your children in peaceful surroundings then Nouvelle-Aquitaine is the perfect spot for you.
  • Geoff and Jenny’s place is wonderful. The big common garden with swimming pool and all kinds of playground equipment was perfect for our kids! Besides that we had our own fenced garden, what is nice with small kids. It lies very peacefull and litterally in the middle of nowhere, what was exactly what we wanted. The house is well equiped and has two large bedrooms and a large kitchen with living room. Maybe a new couch in the living room would make it even better, but with such an outdoor place, who cares 😃

    Bastiaan2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice and relaxing stay at the Chalais. I can absolutly recommend Geoff and Jenny as a brilant host Thank you for everythink

  • Geoff and Jenny were great hosts. They made us feel very much at home. They were very welcoming and had so many great suggestions of where to visit during our stay. Our son loved the pool, the trampoline, and all of the games that were at the house. Definitely try the homemade ice cream next door to the Gite. It was delicious!

  • Le Tilleul is a very pleasant place in a quiet countryside. We had a very pleasant stay. We enjoyed the great cleanliness of the house, the comfort of the beds, the functional and cozy kitchen and the panorama from the pool. I do recommend Deborah & John's house.

  • We have been coming to this area for 16 years but this is the first time we have used Air B n B. Sarah's place provided everything two adults, two teenagers and a dog could need for indoor/outdoor living and we would certainly like to book it again. With swimming at nearby rivers and lakes, the plunge pool was all we needed to cool down on lazy hot afternoons on the sun deck. We could spread out and each find a quiet spot to ourselves on the property, or converge for a meal, a film or a game of darts or ping-pong. Our dog also enjoyed the freedom to canter around the large securely-fenced garden. Thoughtful touches that outdid gites we have stayed in nearby include the generous welcome pack; enough tabs for the dishwasher and washing machine and enough bin/recycling bags for the week; good towels and linen; bikes; ice. Highly recimmended

    Vinita2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very nice and lovely decorated. There is everything you need. There is a very big garden with different places to sit outside.

    Simone2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah is a fantastic, thoughtful and attentive host. Her place has everything you could want for a relaxing stay from a little basket of provisions on arrival to a folder full of useful things to do nearby. She went out of her way to ensure high chair and cot for our 10 month old. The location and gite itself are exactly as described, in a small pretty hamlet 5 mins by car from the small market town of Chalais with supermarkets, market, bank and cafes. Angouleme, Perigueux, Cognac and Bordeaux are all within an hour.

    Andrew2019-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • A great gite in a perfect location. Sarah is a very attentive host. We would definitely recommend Sarah's place.

  • Sarah's home was even better than we'd expected from reading the description here! Location is excellent. Chalais is great for all your needs and St Avit is picture perfect, super quiet and super relaxing. It's also close to some great cycle routes. We had an excellent week!

    Deborah2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nice quiet house with all the trimmings. Many lakes in the area, excellent for the children and the dog. Perfect, thanks ...

    Geert2018-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Had a fantastic week at this beautiful cottage in the heart of the Charente countryside but just 5 mins from the little town of Chalais with its Monday market, individual shops, and supermarkets. The cottage is so lovely, with everything you could need for a self catering holiday. Even so, eating out is so reasonable it can be cheaper to do that rather than cook for yourself but everything is there if you want to. There is a large garden either for children to play, or you can just relax and unwind there in the peace and quiet. Lovely neighbours make it feel like home away from home. Thanks Sarah - a great host.

    Pauline2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great week in this lovely cottage in a very quiet village. Everything you need is provided. Our dog loved the large secure garden.
