About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Amanda Rothwell

Giles and I have been running two luxury gites from the Domaine de Trepart for the last 6 years, we have 3 children and 3 dogs.

Year property purchased 2002
Why this location? This location chose us, we are just 10 minutes east of Brantome, but quietly nestled on the banks of the River Cole and just 1 km from St Pierre de Cole, so very handy for the local boulangerie and supermarket.
Unique benefits of property Beautiful rural, riverbank location

Great place to relax whilst the kids have plenty of things to do. Giles and Amanda are brilliant hosts from filling the fridge with a starter pack to advice about local facilities. Also took us shooting and arranged fishing.Lovely river, canoes and pool. The beds are luxurious. Dog was happy.
We would really recommend it!

Owner response

Thanks so much to Yvonne & Uli for such kind words, we loved having you with us this Summer and look forward to welcoming you all back, particularly Lily (the beautiful Jack Russell) who was a great hit with us all. PS The Trout was delicious!
