About the property

New to the holiday rental market

Petit Coin is a charming one bedroom cottage situated in the small hamlet of L'Ecurie on the edge of the pretty village of Bonnes which is on the River Dronne and the Charente/Dordogne border. Within walking distance, Bonnes has amenities including a restaurant and a boulangerie. More extensive facilities can be found in nearby Aubeterre-sur-Dronne (one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France) including a range of shops, restaurants, Sunday market and river beach.

Petit Coin has been completely renovated in recent years but retains all the charm of a French stone cottage. To the first floor is a spacious bedroom with exposed roof timbers, and a shower room; on the ground floor a sitting room and newly fitted, well equipped kitchen including fridge, cooker, dishwasher and washing machine. The cottage sits overlooking the garden and there is a covered sitting area providing shade and the perfect place to enjoy al fresco dining in peaceful surroundings.

This peaceful retreat offers the opportunity for walking, cycling and canoeing in the immediate locality and the region is well known for its markets, restaurants, food and wine. Further afield the cities and towns of Bordeaux, Bergerac, Saint Emillion, Brantome and Cognac are all approximately an hour's drive away. In addition the beautiful coastal towns of La Rochelle and Royan are wonderful places to visit for the day.

Petit Coin is perfect for couples hoping to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this lovely part of France and all the delights it has to offer.

Charming Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage, very peaceful and excellent location for walking along the river into Bonnes. Only downside was we had no internet for our three day stay. The property was lovely and clean and the bread, wine etc. in the fridge was most welcome.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. There is now a dongle at the cottage which provides some internet access but reception is not wonderful.

Petit Coin- a gorgeous high quality cottage in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

What a super cottage this is. An elegant really comfortable lounge tastefully furnished. The kitchen has everything one needs for preparing meals in - which we did for four nights and as the weather was so good we were able to eat outside under the open ( covered) area with nice seats.

The bathroom is spacious and perfectly clean. The bedroom is huge with ample room for suitcases etc. We slept soundly in the well ventilated room.

It's so nice to be in such a peacefully quiet area - not overlooked by anyone and real privacy - sitting in the deck chairs in the sun until late (the cottage is a real sun trap) after driving around the area was so relaxing.

We have had a fabulous time here. If you want to get away from it all yet be within striking distance of many interesting places ( there is lots of useful information in the cottage this is the place to be. We highly recommend it!

we loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

This really was the perfect base for exploring the Charente and Dordogne regions with everything you could need at the house. A beautiful property tucked away in a private corner of this quiet hamlet whilst still being near life in Aubeterre and beyond. It felt like home for 2 weeks!!! Loved the river swimming nearby too.

Thank you for having us.

A relaxing stay in a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful week-long stay here. The property was beautifully maintained and we very quickly felt at home. The property is situated in a tranquil and pretty village just outside of Aubeterre. Perfect for relaxing days in the garden; trips in to Aubeterre; or exploring the wider region. We would certainly go back and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break in this beautiful part of the world.

Lovely town and great cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful country side retreat very close to the neighbouring town of Aubeterre and about 45 minutes from St emilion. I have stayed here twice now and are very much enjoyed the tranquillity of the private grounds surrounded by fields and streams. There is a man-made beach nearby which is a real highlight. The cottage is well furnished with everything one could want yet retains rustic authenticity and is beautifully french. A lovely spot for viewing nature and generally relaxing

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at petit coin was simply the most perfect french getaway I could have imagined. We were so happy in our little house which has superb access to the lovely town of Aubeterre. We were so close to swimming lakes and rivers and had fabulous meals under the stars. I could not recommend highly enough! I'd love to go back.

The accommodation itself is wonderfully presented (with a keen eye for interiors) and feels like the most perfect version of a french cottage but modernised to feel very comfortable, clean and cosy.
