Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful holiday in this charming, quirky cottage full of beautifully kept original features. The area was full of interest and a week was not enough to explore all the places we would have liked to. The owner Lynn was on site and could not have been more friendly, helpful and informative. The garden just across the road is ideal for relaxing if you are lucky with the weather, and the village has a nice restaurant and tabac, with supermarkets not far away in St Junien.

From the Owner

Eddie and Lynn are from Yorkshire. Eddie's skills come in handy as a builder and Lynn is a Clinical Hypnotherapist & Reiki Practitioner. It wasn't until we reached the Charente that we decided this was the area we loved. Very much like the Dales in Yorkshire, rolling countryside and plenty of forest walks. When we viewed this house we had rose tinted glasses as the House was derelict and had not been lived in for around 100yrs! The locals used to walk past the house very slowly to have a peek in and would boldly say' Bonne Courage' (meaning you have courage). We certainly needed it and through blood, sweat and yes tears, lots of them, we finally managed to bring this derelict property back to a beautiful home. The staircase is a wow factor as many of the guests say. This area of France is like stepping back in time 25 years, its so relaxing that you forget what day or time it is.
