Great location for an extended family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was accurately described and we found it easily from the directions provided. Steve and Mel are great hosts and the villas were in very good order. There were 6 of us (family of 4 in one villa and 2 relatives in the other) and we were visited by other members of the family, which was not a problem to Steve and Mel. The pool was wonderful in the very hot weather - especially for the kids - and we spent most evenings dining al fresco. We kayaked on the Charente river, which was excellent, and visited nearby chateaux. Internet and British TV were very good but we were so busy we didn't use them much! Highly recommended to family and friends and we plan to visit again.

We have just had the most amazing week in Beaulieu Cottage. It is such a peaceful location and we had an amazing time. The owners did their utmost to ensure we had all we needed, were not intrusive, but were on hand to offer advice and any help we required. The pool is beautiful, the cottage very clean and comfortable. The views and walks are all you need if you want a relaxing, stress free holiday. We have fallen in love with the area and wish to return very soon to recharge our batteries. We did a bit of sightseeing, ate out locally but spent the majority of time, reading, swimming, walking and enjoying a superb location and simply cant wait to return.

Having had a few holidays in France over the years i can honestly say Beaulieu cottage is PERFECT! There isn't that many places you cay lay by the pool with a heavenly view. The gites are spotless and have everything you could possibly ever need. Steve and Mel are a lovely couple who work very hard and go above and beyond to make sure you have a lovely time. The area has many beautiful towns and things to do to keep 2 children happy. We will def return again... 10 out of 10
