Why Richard Waldeck chose Courbillac
La Sousse has been the much loved holiday home for the family of the current owner for many years. It is certainly a place to make wonderful memories and now it is available for you to rent in order for other families to make their own memories.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Contained within a walled garden La Sousse is safe for family members of all ages. No traffic to worry about and parents can relax knowing even the littlest ones are safe.

A fabulous holiday in a beautiful house for our extended family - grandparents, parents, children and babies. Plenty of space for everyone with loads to do in a lovely relaxing setting. Our hosts were very helpful particularly for one of our group who arrived first picking her up from the station and making sure she was settled in. Weather was much better than predicted so lots of time spent by the pool.
We also arranged for a photographer to come and take some great family pictures - a lovely setting making many happy memories.
Fabulous Family Gathering
Three generations of our family, fifteen of us in total had a wonderful week together at La Sousse.
The house was spacious with all the room and facilities we needed. Plenty of hot water, and fans, A/C in bedrooms to keep bedrooms cooler on warm nights.
The swimming pool was lovely, with plenty of sunloungers, and our eldest granddaughter celebrated her 13th birthday with a pool party.
We had mostly sunny days and spent most of our time outdoors, where the excellent facilities kept us busy.
We loved the boules court, where the whole family took part in regular competitions. We also played badminton, football, table tennis and darts, as well as games in the pool.
The outside covered eating area was our favourite place to dine.
We visited Aubeterre Sur Dronne before our arrival, then Cognac and St Palais during our stay.
A whole family circular walk to the Chateau in the neighbouring village was great fun, although we managed to set every dog in the region barking as we passed.
Excellent support from our hosts.
We would highly recommend.
Great place for a group
8 Bedrooms, 8 couples. Great times in a well appointed country house with a superb pool area . Owners a joy to deal with. Quiet Location made for great sleep! 16 people sat together for meals inside or out. Very good time.
Grande maison agréable pour vacances familiales
Belle demeure avec 8 chambres, un grand jardin clos avec 2 terrasses dont une couverte et eclairée et une piscine chauffée avec accès sécurisé. Une grande cuisine bien équipée mais on a eu du mal à bien faire fonctionner le four et les plaques. On a trouvé aussi qu’il était dommage que dans certaines salles de bains équipées de baignoires, on ne puisse prendre que des bains car les baignoires ne sont pas équipées de pommeau de douche. Il y a beaucoup d'équipements pour bébé de fournis (lits
Bébés, chaise haute, transat...) et beaucoup de jeux extérieurs : jeux de piscine (même si certains étaient percés) table de ping-pong, trampoline...
Maison composée d'espaces agréables avec une séparation des chambres (4 d'un côté et 4 de l'autre). De même dans le jardin avec piscine bien séparée et protégée + espace jeux pour les enfants.
