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 farmhouse 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 farmhouse 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.

Fab relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We comprised three families (twelve in all), two of which had younger children and ours were 12-14. We all had a fabulous time. Everyone enjoyed the pool, whilst the older kids enjoyed tennis and table tennis and the younger ones the kiddies play area. Geraldine & Bob the owners were very welcoming & friendly and were happy to help wherever they could with recommendations (the lake/beach 30 mins away for example). The location was very peaceful and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Aubeterre is only a short drive and has some decent restaurants and St Severin has a couple bars and a very handy Spar! Bob & Geraldine even organised a big BBQ for all four gites that gave everyone the opportunity to socialise if they wanted to.

Thoroughly recommended!
