About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr David & Nicki Needham

We are David and Nicki Needham. We have been making magical holidays here at Chateau de Gurat in 2004. In that time we have gradually evolved what we have to offer based on the feedback we have received from our guests. 13 seasons later we are still evolving! but our guests seem to think everything is "just right!"<br/>We hope you will come and see for yourselves :-)

Year property purchased 2004
Why this location? For us, the beautiful Charente region is the "Goldilocks Zone" of France - Neither too hot nor too cold, too near nor too far, too busy not too quiet.
Unique benefits of property Our guests choose us time and time again because, with 6 cottages we are ideal for families that like to socialise with other families and have other children for there's to play with.
