The Owner Recommends

La Poirior - Bardenac

Wonderful authentic French restaurant, during the week 5 set courses for €12 per person including wine. A must visit for anyone staying in the area.

Il de Ré

Harbour villages and cycle paths adorn this exquisite corner of France’s Atlantic coast, this island is situated just off the coast of La Rochelle and boasts as many hours of sunshine as the Cote d'Azur, but that is all it has in common with the glitzy South of France. In Ile de Re the best form of transport is the bicycle to explore the many cycle paths that take you from the miles of golden beaches adorning the Atlantic coastline to the bustling port town of St Martin de Re where you can sample some of the best seafood know to man.

This is not the summer bolt hole for well healed Parsisians for nothing.. the French version of the Hamptons and all just a day trip away from Maison St Louis.

Aubeteree Sur Dronne

The town of Aubeterre Sur Dronne, rated as one of France's most beautiful towns, with spectacular views of the Dronne Valley and renowned underground church is only 30 mins drive away. Largely pedestrianised, it is easy to spend a day exploring its cobbled streets and squares. In the evenings you can enjoy an aperitif under the plan trees in the square before heading to one of the town's excellent restaurants.
