Downstairs there is a wc with toilet and sink, large sitting room with English tv, dvd player etc, large games room with pool table, table tennis and darts (ideal for entertaining the children while you enjoy a glass of wine!) very large modern kitchen with all mod cons (dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave etc) and an adjoining large dining room.The house is South facing and very light and bright all day while remaining cool due to the thick stone walls (the windows all have shutters should you wish to keep the sun out). The dining room and back sitting room both have glass doors opening onto a lovely sunny courtyard which is completely private and gets the sun each evening, there is also a stone bbq ready for those lovely sunny evenings along with table and chairs.
This house is really excellent for entertaining and relaxing over a glass of wine. There are wooden doors off the courtyard leading to the lovely riverside garden.

We have owned our French property since early 2009 and lived in it for 5 years. We have now returned to the UK but love to visit our house for a relaxing break.

Wonderful property for large families or big groups of friends looking for a fun and relaxing holiday in the sun!|
Bar/Restaurant in the village is excellent for a cheap lunch or dinner, enjoy a glass (or two) of wine on the sunny terrace and then walk back to the house for a BBQ and dip in the pool!
Highly recommended. Bright and airy. Loved walking to bar for afternoon drinks. Village shop very handy. Pool lovely and warm with plenty of room for all. House was very clean and well equipped. Nice and cool inside on a hot day. Fast internet available throughout. All mod cons nothing else we needed. English TV very handy. Quick replies from owner by text when we had questions. Would love to return one day.
Very much enjoyed our holiday here. House was exactly as described, extremely well equipped with everything thought off. We especially loved the village location and being able to walk to all amenities. The local shop and restaurant were much appreciated and we enjoyed several barginous meals here before walking back to the house. The garden is very tranquil and the kids loved going in the pool all day while we drank wine by the river. Certainly hope to return one day. Thank you for having us to stay.
We stayed here and had a simply wonderful holiday. The house is just what we were looking for, very large with loads of space for all of us (party of 8). Games room was fabulous, entertained the husbands and children for hours of an evening. The swimming pool was perfect, lovely and warm at all times and could fit all of us in comfortably and having a garden on the river was very relaxing and tranquil. The house was very clean and well maintained, the owner was always available at short notice if we had a query. Everything worked while we were there and the internet/WiFI was much appreciated. The village the house is in is very nice, a really good bar/restaurant and local shop which had a good selection of groceries. Also brilliant being able to walk to everything and pick up a fresh baguette/croissant in the morning. Only a short drive to Brantome where you can find numerous restaurants and tourist attractions. This was an extremely good holiday and for the price we paid outstanding. Will be visiting again next time we go to France. Recommend to all and especially large groups!
