|Why this location?||Brantome is a beautiful town, full of charm and character. There is so much to do in the town and around the local area that we never run out of new things to do.
We love to visit the local restaurants, and spend many happy days relaxing at the lake beaches nearby. We also love to canoe and have done the half day tour to Bourdeilles on many occasions.

Canoeing is one of the highlights of the area. It is possible to do short trips around the town, or take a half or full day trip to another local town. You are then brought back by bus. There are lots of weirs on the route which make for lots of fun!

We enjoyed a good week in Fuchsia - it had everything we needed and the welcome basket was a lovely welcome. The situation was very good with lovely walks and places to visit. Brantome with its Abby was a beautiful town.
A delightful property in an excellent location. It was tranquil and relaxing - just what we needed.
The town with free parking is a three minute drive and a 15 minute walk.
The property was clean throughout and well equipped kitchenwise with washing machine and dishwasher. The bed was comfortable as was the sitting room furniture. Outside, front and back, were tables and chairs to help us soak up the sun. The underground car park was easy to access and parking was very easy.
The welcome pack was appreciated.
We would not hesitate to recommend this property and there is a very strong chance that we will seek to return.
