Excellentes vacances en Charente

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances dans cette jolie région. Il y a beaucoup d'activités à faire et de sites intéressants à découvrir.

Si on a juste envie de se reposer et de profiter du calme du quartier, la maison est idéale. Elle est spacieuse, agréable et très bien équipée.

Le jardin est grand, fleuri et bien entretenu. Le matin pour le petit déjeuner ou en soirée pour un BBQ, on s'y sent bien. L'accueil a été parfait et souriant.

C'est très certainement une adresse que je conserverai.

Agreable sejour

  • 4 of 5

Belle maison avec un joli terrain. Au vu temps qu'il a fait ce mois d'aout, tout etait bien vert autour de nous! Notre sejour a ete tres agreable et reposant. Seul bemol la maison etait un peu humide a notre gout. Mais cela doit etre plus appreciable par temps plus chaud.

Owner's Response: Effectivement, avec le mauvais temps de ce mois d'Aout, tout était bien vert mais le taux d'hygrométrie à l'intérieur de la maison devait être plus élevé que d'habitude. Ne pas hésiter à mettre quelques bûches dans le poêle (bois offert par la maison): ambiance agréable assurée!
