We had a wonderful, relaxing 2 weeks at La Grange; a beautiful, immaculate, well equipped gite with it's wonderful pool, which we made so much use of during the 37 degree heat! The owners Jan and Janine are very friendly and helpful, providing us with fresh veg from their garden, games for the pool and milk when we ran out! But they're not intrusive, just there if you need them.
We visited Aubetterre sur Dronne and Jonzac (both lovely places), went kayaking at Montbron, to the lakes at Montguyon and Jonzac and to Futuroscope (a bit of a drive but we'd been before and wanted to go again!), but were more than happy to be at the gite and in the pool for a lot of the time :) The local supermarkets are about a 10-15 minute drive away and are so much better than Sainsburys or Tesco!
We would highly recommend La Grange for a peaceful, relaxing time away in beautiful surroundings.
Jan and Janine made us very welcome during our stay at their lovely property La Grange. It really is a well equipped and spotlessly clean house where every possible need is catered for. The pool is a delight and we enjoyed feeding daisy and Rosie the chickens every day and eating out in the garden. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return in the future.
We have had a wonderful 2 weeks staying at The Grange. The cottage was spacious and so well catered for all your holiday needs. The cottage was well maintained and very clean. We loved the location, so peaceful.
Jan and Janine were the perfect hosts and supplied us with the most amazing welcome pack. We have stayed in many properties in France for our holidays and have never been catered for in such an abundant way!
The beautiful new pool was an added bonus to the cottage and was so much appreciated during our hot and sunny holiday.
Thank you both, we had a very relaxing holiday,
Jackie and Alan-and the teenagers!
We pulled up and parked, without making a wrong turn due to the spot on directions given, on the La Grange's very private drive.
Following a friendly greeting from our hosts, we walked into our temporary 'home'. We say home, because that's what it felt like! The light, airy and spacious living space was comfortable and well thought out. A jug of roses greeted us as we walked in, which was a lovely touch, along with our welcome pack. Every bedroom was well presented with more than ample storage.
We always enjoy splitting our time on holiday between venturing out visiting interesting places and relaxing by the pool. We did manage to visit the citadel at Blaye, a late afternoon walk along the beautiful beach, Saint-Georges-de Didonne, canoed along the La Charente in Jarnac, visited a Chateau and took a tour of Hine Cognac, dinner in Aubettere, Chateauneuf and Barbezieux.
The pool was so difficult to tear ourselves away from and was always lovely to return to following a day out! Jan and Janine keep it so beautifully clean, it always looked so inviting. Surrounded but sunflower fields and vineyards, La Grange has an idyllic setting.
Jan and Janine have perfected the balance of being really helpful and yet not at all intrusive. We very much enjoyed our stay, the only let down being we hadn't booked for longer!
We had a fabulous holiday in a really lovely barn conversion. The accommodation was superb - everything we needed was there, property was clean and facilities perfect. The swimming pool was just wonderful, especially on the really hot days! The location was perfect for exploring the local area. Janine and Jan were friendly and helpful. I cannot fault the holiday, thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful barn conversion. I would definitely recommend this property to others.
We had a wonderful time in great property with extremely friendly and helpful owners. Would certainly recommend to others. Perfect and well done Jan and Janine.
This beautiful barn conversation in the small village of Ladiville is set amongst sunflower fields and vineyards in the Petit Champagne area of the Charente.
Basic provisions can be found 5 minutes drive away, and the larger towns of Chateauneuf-sur-Charente and Barbezieux, each about 15 minutes drive, have a good selection of shops and restaurants.
The historic city of Angouleme, known for the Circuit des Remparts, is just 20 minutes away and offers a wide range of bars and restaurants.
The famous town of Cognac is just over 25 minutes drive and visitors can visit the many cognac distilleries.
The port of Mortagne sur Gironde and picturesqueTalmont on the Gironde estuary, and the beaches at Meschers, St Georges and Royan are about an hour away and are well worth visiting.
The Cote Sauvage, the Zoo at La Palmyre and the oyster beds at La Tremblade are also recommended.
