Choice of fabulous barn Gites (sleeping 8 & 6) and a courtyard sleeping (5)
With a sleeping capacity of 19, Tillac is the perfect place to holiday with extended family and friends. We have capacity for grandparents, parents and the grand children. We offer a choice of 2 beautiful Gites (Fauvette sleeps up to 8) and (Souris sleeps 6) in a converted Charentaise barn and a courtyard cottage (Alouette sleeps 5). The Gites are set in a couple of acres of gardens with flowers beds, shrubs, fruit trees and extensive lawn. The centre of the garden has an large secure pool area that has a fabulous pear shaped heated 11m x 7m pool. Fauvette has an expansive lounge and dining area with double height ceiling with a rap around mezzanine leading to the three very large bedrooms. Souris sleeps 6 in three bedrooms (double and 2 twins). Fauvette and Souris can be let as one complete unit via an internal inter-connecting door, making it ideal for large parties of friends and family up to 14 people. Fauvette and Souris have upstairs and downstairs shower/WC facilities and a downstairs utility room. Alouette sleeps 5 in two bedrooms in a separate building in the secluded courtyard. The secure pool area is set in the centre of the garden with a beautiful large pear shaped heated pool with roman steps for easy access. The pool has a uniform depth of 1.25m making it ideal for non-swimmers who merely wish to cool off, and has ample sun loungers, parasols and small tables. There is ample private parking in the grounds for all guests. The properties are equipped with free WIFI internet access, satellite HD TV/DVD and use of our collection of DVD's, books and games.
Whilst being in a rural hamlet location, local amenities are within driving distance.The town of Mouthe-sur-Boeme is a 5 minute drive away, with Blanzac and Villebois-Lavalette about 15 minutes drive. The fortified hilltop town of Angouleme is a 20 minute drive, Cognac about 30 minutes and the Atlantic coastal sand beaches, about an hour.

About Stephen and Catherine
We spent over 2 years, countless hours of internet browsing and several visits to find Tillac in beautiful Charente. We have the opportunity to share the property and surrounding's with family, friends and future guests who we are sure will enjoy it as much as we do.
Stephen and Catherine purchased this Barn in 2017
Why Stephen and Catherine chose Plassac-Rouffiac
The heated pool allows us to operate an extended summer season with temperatures in the mid 20c to the end of September. With little or no light, noise and air pollution, Tillac is a place of peace and tranquility in which to relax and unwind during your holiday vacation. Whilst being located in a small hamlet in a countryside location, the village of Mouthe-sur-Boeme is a short 4 km drive away. Villebois Lavalette with it's chateau is within a 15 minute country lane drive.
What makes this Barn unique
Tillac consists of two Gites, a cottage and owners accommodation. Families who have a dream to holiday together can rent the 2 Gites (capacity 14) which have a connecting door or extend that to include the cottage making the capacity 19. Holidaying together will create a truly fabulous family holiday experience and everlasting memories. We fell in love with this property because of the peace and tranquility, the clean air and country location that make Tillac a great place to relax in a stress free environment. Clear night skies, Crain and Swallow bird migrations and a varied garden are ideal for photographers, nature lovers and painters alike. The surrounding country lanes and pretty villages provide mile upon mile of opportunity for walkers/hikers and cyclists

Excellent family holiday
We rented the two largest gites that can be if you wish inter-connected for a large group of family and friends age ranging from 70yrs to 16 months. We had a marvellous time and the swimming pool was a big bonus. This is a lovely spacious gite with beautiful grounds and wide ranging views. It is a very quiet area and no evening eateries nearby but we were quite happy sitting outside in the evenings, drinking wine and watching the glorious sunsets.
Thank you for your feedback Caroline, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Tillac.

Fantastic gite, fantastic hosts
We have stayed in a number of gites in France and this was the best yet. Steve and Rosemary (on site) were attentive but respectful of privacy and always on hand to advise of a good day trip! They really embraced our families and kept the site in perfect order. The gites themselves were clearly a labour of love, the views fantastic and the location perfect. We'd thoroughly recommend to families of all ages. The only problem was getting the children away from the pool to explore the region!
Thanks again to you both x
Many thanks for taking the time to write this very favourable review of your stay with us. We are very pleased that you all had a wonderful time and we would certainly welcome your return sometime in the future.

Worth spoiling yourself
How amazing to see 12 faces light up, after an 11 hour car journey, on arrival at this fantastic Gite. Warmly welcomed by Rosemary and Steve who were a fountain of knowledge throughout our stay offering recommendation of places to visit and venture to. The Gite was immaculate and offered our group of 6 adults and 6 children (72 years old to 11 years) ample accommodation as well as every facility and utensil we would need for our self catered stay. The Gite is set in ideallic surrounding with a stunning outlook over the pool to the corn and sunflower fields beyond. The pool, which is meticulously maintained through Steve's attention, is stunning and our whole group were more than happy to spend the vast majority of our stay just lazing around the edge, dipping to cool off or even adventuring in for a game of water volleyball. The area is quite and a car is very much needed to get to shops and restaurants, I enjoyed visiting La Couronne and spending hours just walking around the huge Auchan supermarket where you can buy just about anything and the commercial area surrounding it has places to eat (kids always like a visit to McDonalds no matter where you are and they were not disappointed!). I would obviously fully recommend this Gite (home) to anyone and would certainly visit again. Steve and Rosemary are fantastic hosts and certainly made our stay something we will always remember and look back on with very fond memories.
We were delighted to have you all......so glad you enjoyed your stay.
