About the Owner
We are Val & Keith and between us we have more than fifty years experience in the travel and hospitality industries. For many years Keith owned restaurants in the uk and Val had a long and happy career with a major British airline. We recently took time out to do some seasonal work in the Alps and spent three years running chalets and perfecting our skiing! We also enjoyed a summer in Provence and the following summer in Tuscany running walking and cycling holidays before returning to the Charente. We love meeting people from all walks of life and assure you of a warm welcome in our lovely Charentaise farmhouse.
We are keen tennis players and happy to give our guests a game at the local court.
