About Brian & Caroline
We moved to the Charente from the South of England in September 2006. Brian retired from his marketing business, but Caroline still works from time to time as an IT consultant both here and abroad. Brian and Caroline are happy to help guests with any aspect of their stay and can interact as much OR as little as guests desire!
Brian & Caroline purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Brian & Caroline chose Le Lindois
The cottage offers exceptionally spacious accommodation in the heart of tranquil countryside. Despite being over 200 years old, a complete restoration was finished in Summer 2015 including new roof, floors, doors, windows and insulation and modern amenities throughout whilst maintaining the essential character of this charming cottage and location.

Beautiful Gite, very well finished and very comfortable.
Brian and Caroline were the perfect hosts. We felt very welcome and they were always on hand to answer any questions or help us find our way around. Would highly recommend renting this Gite. The area is just beautiful and so peaceful, just the perfect holiday. We are already planning to visit Brian and Caroline next year and looking forward to sharing a glass of wine with our new friends.
The pleasure was mutual we really enjoyed this stay, a fitting end to high season. Also appreciate how clean and tidy the cottage was left. Quite a feat with two young boys and four dogs! Thank You!
Peaceful and pretty location with great hosts
Lovely gite in a peaceful setting in a beautiful part of France. Caroline and Brian are really great hosts and made us very welcome.
We equally enjoyed hosting Tim, Charley, Jake and their puppy Midge. Particularly pleased they had a good time despite the unusually "mixed" weather during their stay!
Great little place ,very quiet
Lovely little place , very quiet , but no good for food lovers as not many high end places within 15 miles ,
that said if you want a quiet escape from every thing ,there's a bbq at the villa and there's a great supermarket about 20 minutes drive away with everything you could want ,
Actually there are two five star restaurants within a 10 minute drive :- The Domaine des Etangs at Massignac, and The Grange des Oies at the Chateau of Neuil. We are always happy to direct our guests to these and/or make reservations in advance, if requested.
perfect holiday, perfect property, perfect hosts
Sitting at my desk in dreary London our stay in Chez Bushell seems a world away. The property is gorgrous, Brian and Caroline have managed to keep the character of the 200 year old barn with the twist of a few mod cons (wifi and TV perfect for watching some late night Olympics) With scorching weather we took full advantage of the pool. Every recommendation given to us whether a restaurant or town was top notch.
cant recommend enough
We thoroughly enjoyed having Robyn, Tom, Jade and Tim stay with u, they are welcome back any time!
vacances au calme
Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable en pleine campagne. Le cottage est très agréable et spacieux. Seul petit bémol, la taille du frigo un peu juste pour une famille de 4. Le lieu est idéal pour des vacances au vert, pour se reposer mais aussi profiter des activités sportives à proximité (kayak, paddle, vélorail, randonnées,....). Il y a aussi beaucoup de lieux à visiter dans le coin (château de la Rochefoucauld, Confolens, Village Gaulois, site gallo-romain,...). Mais notre séjour n'aurait pas été aussi agréable sans la gentillesse de Brian et Caroline les propriétaires et de leur chien Bubbles. Ils font tout pour vous mettre à l'aise tout en étant discrets. Point bonus au fait que le linge de lit et de toilette sont compris dans la location ainsi que la mise à disposition des vélos. Un grand merci à eux de nous avoir permis de nous retrouver en famille.
Rust en ruimte in Le Lindois
Met 3 volwassenen hebben wij een week doorgebracht in Le LINDOIS. Vooral de ruimte en de rust waren weldadig. We hebben genoten van de mooi uitgeschreven wandelingen in de omgeving. Het zwembad ( nou ja... ) was heerlijk ter verkoeling.
Brian en Caroline zijn de gastvrije eigenaren en hebben ons veel verteld over de mogelijkheden in de omgeving om te bezoeken. Kortom een fantastische week!
