A Lovely house in a fabulous rural location. We wanted a peaceful place to relax and it certainly gave us that. The house is comfortable and the pool is wonderful. We were especially impressed by the bug screens on the windows which were a very much appreciated feature. Being in the countryside there are often more flies than usual, but here it was not a problem at all. The local manager was very helpful and not overly intrusive and the key arrangements were very easy. There are good shops etc within a 10 minute drive, and a wide variety of things to see within an hour drive. The village is quite small, but we often took a stroll in the evening and had a chat with the locals who were very friendly. There are currently no shops in the village. We visited Lezay, Melle and Sauze-Vaussais markets and visited towns further afield including Civray, Jarnac and La Rochelle, as well as the Vallee des Singes wildlife park.We loved looking at the night sky which is extensive as there is hardly any light pollution. If you want peaceful....this is it!!
