Visitors' comments:
"We found Le Studio to be the ideal base from which to explore this region of rural France whilst still within striking distance of the coast. The accomodation is well appointed, comfortable and enjoys a fabulously peaceful setting and we would certainly recommend this property." K & Z Holmes, Cambs. July '13.
"We had a great time. Le Studio is well situated and only a short drive to amenities/sightseeing etc. Well equipped, clean and comfortable. We met Wendy and Trevor, the owners who were staying next door and they were delightful and so helpful. We can thoroughly recommend staying at Le Studio and would not hesitate in returning." Sue & Paul, Brighton. August '13.



Kitchen and dining

Fully equipped kitchen which includes fridge-freezer, gas cooker, washing machine and microwave.

The lounge/diner has a pine table with 4 matching pine chairs, pine rocking chair and pine Welsh dresser, plus a 3 seater Futon.

Open beamed ceilings, and exposed Charantaise stonework throughout.

Westerly facing fully glazed entrance door with easterly facing window by table.

Living rooms

The main source of heating would be the woodburner situated in the corner of the lounge, but electric radiators throughout the gite can be used instead.
Tv/dvd with freeview.


A large double bedroom which faces east over the surrounding countryside - a truly welcoming sight with sunshine first thing in the morning.

Sun terrace accessed from the bedroom. Suntrap with truly wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.


Accessed from the bedroom, the bathroom is equipped with toilet, washbasin, bidet and large walk in shower.

Open beamed ceiling with exposed stonework adds to the overall charm.


Woodburner plus the option of electric radiators.

Garden and outside

The small enclosed garden would be facing east and, like the terrace, would be in sunshine until mid afternoon, following which the amenity grass area which faces west and is outside the main door would be bathed in sunshine later on. Parts of Le Studio would be in the sun all day long.

Parking and garages

Parking space immediately adjacent to the property.

Visitor suitability

With the stairs being somewhat steeper than the 'norm', people with walking difficulties should contact us regarding suitability and practicality.

Information about any additional facilities

This is a very quiet property in a particularly quiet part of the village and generally speaking, probably the most that you will hear would be the song birds.

We cannot overstate the quite wonderful country views from the terrace - most years offering sunflowers.

8.3 / 10 Peter& Sally-NSW Australia 6 September, 2012

Le Studio is in the heart of rural France. You are surrounded by farm land in this hamlet. The only noise you hear is the occasional car and tractor. The nearest village is 10 minutes away by car so if you want a quiet location, this is ideal. The facilities are quite good and Le Studio represents very good value for money for a couple. It is an ideal location if you enjoy walking, cycling,R&R with many villages and small towns that have cafes and restaurants where you can eat at lunchtime for 10-15 Euros.
If you want handy night life, this is not for you.
