A little Bit of Paradise
About the Owner
Nick & Gillian live in London with their two children and the life style in south-west France could not be more different. Having been on holiday in this area for the last seven years we knew we loved it enough to make a base there. Our children also love it and can have a freedom here that is hard to have at home. The lifestyle is very relaxed and it is even a pleasure to self cater with so much fabulous produce at the local markets.

A little Bit of Paradise
This property certainly has the 'Wow' factor with a capital 'W'. The photo's on this site do not portray the luxury or the calm and tranquility of the place. My husband and I were looking for somewhere to get away from it all and this was perfect for us. We had private use of the whole property, pool and gardens and whilst we normally like to do some site seeing, we just could not tear ourselves away from such a beautiful place. I cannot think of anything negative to say about this property and would whole heartedly recommend it for any couple wanting to spend some quality time together. I hope to return at a future date.
Spent a relaxing week in a wonderful property with exceptional amenities. Exceeded our expectations. Would recommend to family and friends.
Relaxing Getaway in France
This is the second time we have visited the Gite and this trip was just as wonderful as the last. The gite itself is extremely clean and comfortable (especially the bed!) and fully equip with everything you could need. It's quite remote, so very peaceful and relaxing, but the local town is only a 10 minute drive away and has everything you could need (the patisseries were my favourite). The pool is absolutely fantastic and we only dragged ourselves away from it to take in some of the sights in the surrounding areas. Aubeterre is a really beautiful little town near by, great for exploring and eating, we especially enjoyed trying galettes in Creperie de la Source. We also loved visiting Brantome, the views are absolutely breath taking and it's lovely to wander around the shops for the afternoon. We've been on many holidays as a couple, but this has by far been the best!
From the Owner
“The property is easy to get to by air, train or road, and we have tried them all over the years. Apart from a couple of French neighbours, the property is fairly remote and you will need a car to get out and about. For us that is part of the appeal. The nearest market town however is only 5km away and there is plenty to do and see within 10km. One of France's prettiest villages, Aubeterre, a 9 hole golf course with restaurant and bar, canoeing on the River Dronne, a river beach, and fields of sunflowers in the summer.”
