About the Owner

Having worked many years in the tourist business with a pub/restaurant in Devon and then a holiday cottage caretaking business in Cornwall, Sally and I moved here in 2010. We have two dogs and a cat and we all enjoy the space and tranquility of the countryside here. We are keen gardeners and naturalists, I'm an entomolgist/botanist by training and this is a wonderful area for moths,butterflies,orchids and of course birds.We are always on hand to offer advice to our guests on places to visit or to dine and enjoy sharing our knowledge of the area and it's residents.

We love living here and wish to share this with our guests, hopefully they will fall in love with it too, it's hard not to!

a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday, the give was clean and well prepared and the welcome was very warm and friendly. Jon and Sally make you feel very much at home. It is a lovely place to stay and particularly so if you like walks, cycling and countryside and certainly if you have a dog.

There is lots to do within easy travelling distance and Brantome is close by with a number of lovely restaurants.

We would recommend a stay and will hopefully be back

Maison Lannet

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week here. The gite is in the most beautiful setting with a large garden surrounded by fields and woods with some lovely walks from the door. The gite itself is very well equipped and the pool is large and clean. The owners were lovely (delivering a gorgeous quiche to us after our very long drive) and provided lots of information on things to do in the area. My son really enjoyed playing with their dog who was very friendly and was an asset to our enjoyment.

There's lots to do in the area such as canoeing, visiting chateau, cycling etc, but if the weather is good nothing would be nicer than relaxing by the pool.

The Gite

A fantastic experience from the date of arrival to the departure date. Jon and Sally were excellent hosts and their local knowledge was invaluable. The Gite, grounds and walks were excellent and the family thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquillity.

Highly recommended.

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with Brantome on our first visit and from then on this area was definitely where we wanted to be. We have space,open skies with amazing sunsets and starry nights, the peace and quiet of the countryside is wonderful.Our house and gite have an ideal mix of history,the fireplace in the gite is 16th century,and modern comforts. Our garden is large with space for all, lawned areas for badminton,ball games and also flower beds for colour all year round. The colours in autumn, late October to November are fantastic with maples,wild cherry and chestnuts in abundance. We have all this countryside and yet are only 12kms from both Brantome and Nontron for shops and restaurants. We never tire of our surroundings and enjoy sharing them with our guests.
