About Craig and Becky Keene

We are Craig and Beck Keene, proud owners of Chez Desier and have been happily settled in this area since 2011. We have rented our lovely farmhouse out for the past 3 years during which time we have received some amazing reviews and feedback.

Craig and Becky Keene purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Craig and Becky Keene chose Vendoire

We have spent many years enjoying holidays in France, but always seemed to be drawn back to this region with the sunflowers, the fine wines and beautiful scenery. The local markets are just a joy to visit and Aubeterre sur Dronne and Brantome are just some of the wonderful places to visit.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We can honestly say that our guests spend more time at Chez Desier than out and about and we consider this to be the highest complement. The private pool and several seating areas certainly makes this a great place to recharge your batteries. The night sky looks like diamonds on black velvet, and can be the last image you remember as you drift off to sleep.
