About geraldine

Hi - Bob, Geraldine and kids are a family who decided to up roots from rainy Manchester in 2010 to start a new life in beautiful SW France and enjoy something of the quiet life! We have four fantastic children, Eddie (15), twins William and Erin (13) and Charlie (12)! Not forgetting our super friendly Cocker Spaniel, Daisy who steals most of the limelight in th season. We also have a cat - imaginatively named Ginge! We are an outgoing family and enjoy good company and a tipple or two.

We look forward to welcoming new guests to La Ferriere and sharing our kmnowledge and experiences with them and their families.

geraldine purchased this cottage in 2010

Why geraldine chose Charente

After many weeks of holidays and scouring the SW of France we felt that Aubeterre (and the surrounding area) was the perfect place for us as a family and to operate a successful Gite business.

We feel that we are perfectly placed for guests to enjoy all of the attractions of the local area (Aubeterre, Lac Jemaye, Riberac and it's Market) and further afield (Bordeaux, Brantome, Perigeux and the Dordogne valley), whilst maintaining a level of tranquility during the peak summer months that all guests will love!

We love family bike rides and the Dronne river is reached in around 3 minutes with Aubeterre beach in about 20 minutes (obviously a lot less in the car if you prefer!). Both of which are perfect for picnics and general exploring or lazing!

What makes this cottage unique

We have lots of facilities at La Ferriere to keep both adults and children happy and entertained. If you are feeling energetic, you can have a few sets of tennis on the fabulous tennis court followed by a dip in the pool. The views are outstanding, overlooking the beauty of the Charente valley.

We have a great gamesroom with table tennis, pool table, table football and a darts board. Other facilities at La Ferriere include: Large children's play area, with "Spring Free" Trampolne, Swings and Slides, Sand Pit and Playhouse (with an Upstairs!). Private Gardens/Terrace for all properties

Proximity to Aubeterre (great Restaurants and Bar) 5 mins.

E Leclerc supermarket in Riberac is about 15 mins away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks you for making this a wonderful fortnight...you made us feel so welcome. The children enjoyed the river beaches and meeting other children.

What a fantastic week! Great hosts, fantastic cakes and biscuits and the BBQ and pizza nights were a highlight. Thanks to you all especially Daisy!!

What a haven you have created here. The tranquility is extraordinary -a complete break from our busy lives at home. See you next year!

One of the best holidays I've ever had. Everyone is really friendly.

Wow! What a superb place and fantastic hospitality. We all loved the pools, tennis courts, flapjacks and the cheeky Northern humour!!

Thank you all for a great week at La Ferriere - we've all had a lovely time (it's just gone too quickly!) Great BBQ, tennis, baking and company...

Thanks for looking after us so well for the last 3 weeks. Your attentive and relaxed manner ha s been a major plus. The gite and facilities were excellent and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Great Family Holiday

  • 3 of 5

The owner Geraldine is a really lovely lady as is the rest of her family(including Bob and Daisy). This is real rural France, so expect lizards, frogs and the odd snake. The property is good value for money. The location, absolute peace. You are close to all types of fun, rivers to swim in, lakes to canoe in and villages to dine in and listen to all types of music whilst enjoying fine French wines. Go for it and you will enjoy a fabulous French holiday. The only problem, the family all support Man. U.
