About Nick and Tina

We are an English family with 4 boys who adore the place.

Nick and Tina purchased this house in 2015

Why Nick and Tina chose Verteuil-sur-Charente

This is a beautiful, well proportioned house within a very popular, well serviced village. There is plenty of space to congregate as a group or to find a little peace on your own. The village is tranquil and exceptionally scenic, composed almost entirely of rural historic buildings. The amenities are good so you will spill out into the bars and restaurants. The local roads are minor so there is plenty of opportunity to explore the surrounding villages and countryside on foot or bicycle

What makes this house unique

A great benefit is that everything is on your doorstep. There is no need to drive to dinner. in fact, there is no need to leave the village at all. That said, there is a lot to see as we explain on our website www.verteuil.com

Wow - fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent ages trying to find a house that ticked boxes for a large family ranging from 3yrs to 83yrs. On arrival we were delighted by what we saw and immediately felt vey comfortable.

The house was big enough to accommodate us all and provided ample space for entertaining kids whilst having areas for quiet retreats.

The house was beautifully finished, clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our two week stay.

The pool was a big hit...as was the barn / yoga studio / ping pong area, the river at the bottom of the garden, bikes, and games etc....

Kevin the local key holder looked after us very well and gave us lots of advice on things going on (local markets and days out etc). The folder with details on the property and attractions in the area was useful as well, but a bit more info on the village and local amenities and attractions would have been an added bonus.

A lovely place enjoyed by all the family - we were sad to leave and would certainly look forward to coming back. Many thanks.

Wonderful - there is nothing more to say

  • 5 of 5

The house was just incredible, the bedding so luxurious and that fire pit..... We all have fire pit envy.

The village itself is so traditional and beautiful.

There was plenty to do for the young adults (walking, cycling, canoeing, table tennis, pool etc etc), whilst us 'oldies', sat, relaxed and took the occasional wonder.

Thanks, it's a holiday to remember

Beautiful house, great location, good friends = fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house has been beautifully refurbished, with every room tastefully decorated and furnished and all retaining its rustic charm. It is very well equipped in every sense, both for sleeping (very very comfortable beds and luxurious bedding), cooking, and keeping the kids entertained (pool, table tennis, darts, bikes, TV/wifi (when we allowed them), and giant fire pit). We enjoyed exploring the local area - Verteuil including the Chateau with Sebastian's Tour, local rivers for kayaking and swimming, tree top adventures, as well as exploring further afield to Angouleme, Cognac, and Aubeterre sur Dronne.

Steve and Marguerite, the local key holders, could not have been more charming and helpful, as were Nick and Tina, the owners.

So with this gorgeous house, great location and some good friends, this was a truly memorable holiday.
