About Amanda Sparkles
Jan is Dutch and Amanda is English. We both French. We live in our blended family with our four children and two dogs. We are both friendly and really enjoy meeting new people. We are both very outdoorsy types and you will see us in the vegetable patch keeping on top of the plants, keeping everything going. We are happy to show guests around our vegetable garden and some farm fresh produce (vegetables, fruit, beef and eggs) will be available for sale, depending on what is available seasonally. We are committed to ensuring that our guests have a wonderful time here.

Why Amanda Sparkles chose Suris
Maison des Etoiles is a magical place. It is off the beaten track yet modern and very comfortable. We have a number of special residents who you will become aquainted with when you stay with us. As the sun goes down, our little owls come out. If you look carefully you will see them flying around the great barn. There are a number of lovely birds for the bird lovers including lots of buzzards and birds of prey. You can see deer, badgers and foxes walking over the fields sometimes and when we go out walking across the countryside it is easy to see game trails where the wild boar and deer roam freely through the land. The stars are worth a mention. The milky way is clearly visible at night and the stars are spectacular. This is truly a beautiful and special part of the world and we are sure you will have a wonderful time here.
What makes this House unique
The house itself is an old style Charentaise farm house. The layout is on a grand scale. Every room is large and well appointed and there are old oak beams throughout the house with high ceilings and work from local artists is showcased for enjoyment of guests throughout the house (some can be bought subject to availability). The pool and garden are ideal for families and large groups and the architecture of the barn is a joy to behold with great doors and walls of old Charente stone. A gas BBQ is available for guests to use.

ReviewsThis property doesn't have any reviews yet.
The Charente is a beautiful region of France, with the second highest number of sunny days after the Cote d'Azur. In the Summer there are some superb festivals and many spectacles to see. There are numerous local castles, some of which have events in the Summer, to visit. The picturesque towns of Confolens and St Junien are very close and the cities of Limoges and Angouleme have a lot to offer for a day trip with many high street shops and restaurants. There are man made beaches, water sports, bars, restaurants, swimming pools (free) and great walks from the door of the farm house. The area is particularly great for mountain biking and road cycling. The Confolens festival and Limoges festivals in the Summer are spectacular. We will assist you with local knowledge and things to do.
