About the Owner

Maisondor is the home of Johnny and Sarah Gold.

After working for 35 years, managing a charity helping older and disabled people, we decided to move and enjoy life in this peaceful and relaxing part of rural France. Unfortunately, due to illness, we can’t now be in France as often as we’d like. So we decided to let friends, family and you enjoy living in our lovely house in France for the part of the year we’re not there.

We look forward to welcoming you to the area and will do all we can to make sure your holiday is special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a wonderful time, the owners were very friendly and helpful; the booking and arrangements were all done very successfully by email. The house was well equipped and had a very welcoming feel as soon as we arrived. The swimming pool was warm and we had many happy hours playing "keepy-uppy". We also played tennis in the local town which had all the necessary amenities. For a family of 4 including two late teenagers it was an ideal home for a restful holiday. Thank you!"

Lovely gite in stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a great week at the gite. It was spacious, clean, homely and felt very cosy.

The grounds itself were excellent. There was a garden, a pool and even a field! We had lovely meals sitting outside with a bottle of French wine.

The gite was a short walk to the small village of Saint-Severin. We loved getting our fresh croissants from the bakery in the morning. It also had the less authentic but practical Spar which was handy.

Overall a brilliant place to stay and a great base to explore the region - we highly recommend it.

(Please note visited in May 2014 but the calander wouldn't let me input that date).

From the Owner

The property is quiet, charming and peaceful but is only a 10 minute walk from the village which has bakers, grocers, restaurant, pub and a small weekly market. You are only a 10 minute drive from Aubeterre-Sur-Dronne, one of France's most beautiful villages; with river-beach, canoe-hire, wonderful restaurants, a lovely market in the village square and a striking monolithic church described by Michelin Guide as "a must see". And you are less than 10 minutes from golf and tennis at Manoir de Longeveau
