As my dad used to live in Cognac/Segonzac, we just love the Charente region. We found this property online, found the website very appealing and informative with lots of pictures (owners have nothing to hide), and received quick and accurate information from Lesley on our additional questions.
The ride from Belgium was very smooth, the gite is only 13km off the highway.
Once you arrive, you realize that the website is indeed perfectly reflecting reality. Beautiful 4 acre domain with perfectly maintained gardens, a large swimming pool with ample space to sit around or under one of the shady pergolas, lots of grass for the kids to play and... a 'jeu de boule' area !
Derek and Lesley welcomed us and gave us a tour of the property, then took us to the gite. We had the smallest of both gites, but still it is a very spacious one, with large living room, large kitchen where you find really everything you need and 2 nice bedrooms. Even towels are provided for every guest... Plus
