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 (16), twins William and Erin (14) and Charlie (13)! 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.

Ideal holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Orangers cottage with two adults and two small boys (family from Amstelveen, The Netherlands)

The cottage has a large kitchen with everything you can think of. Doors open to a terrace with a very nice view of he hills looking over the main house pool. Next to the kitchen is a very large and cosy living room with TV (english channels) and DVD player. There was no need to light the fireplace fortunately. Bedrooms upstairs with a main bedroom (double bed) and adjoining room with bunk bed. Next to these rooms are a room with single bed (which we used as wardrobe since the boys used the bunk bed off course) and a well equiped bath room with shower.

We loved the spacious garden (with proper and pool (shared only with the neighbours). The boys spent hours in the games room (football and pool table, darts, table tennis, lego etc) and in the playground (swings, small hut, trampoline). Even got round to playing tennis on the terrific court.

Geraldine and Bob, and of course their offspring, are very nice people and they gave us a great time. We are thinking of coming again.

In the neighourhood:

Several villages(Aubeterre very pretty) with restaurants, bakeries (nearest one 3 minutes by car), supermarkets etc

Proper 9 hole golf course with tennis courts, pool, playground and restaurant (5 minutes drive)

18 holes minigolf (10 minutes drive)

(For aviation enthiousiasts and pilots: Airfield (grass runway suitable for light aircraft, cessna etc) and RC model flying club (fun to watch them flying their models)

Daytrips (just a few examples):

Brantome 50 min

St Emillion, Perigieux and Bergerac 1 hour

Angouleme 50min
