About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Kim Johnson

We have lived here for coming on for 3 years now and have made many improvements to the property for the benefit of our guest. We still love the place and strive to make sure our guests do too.

Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? We viewed many properties in South West France but as soon as we saw this place we knew! It felt right, it had lots of potential and most importantly it felt like home. We have over the past 2 years added to and improved the property. We want to give our guests the perfect gite holiday experience and are constantly looking at ways to do that. The area is perfect for just about everybody unless you want wall to wall noise, bars, discos etc. There is hardly any traffic on our local roads so is perfect for walkers and cyclists. There is so much to do should you wish to with tons of pretty villages, beautiful chateaux, velo-rail, canoeing and kayaking, tennis, golf, leisure lakes, fishing and even microlighting at the local airstrip should you be so inclined! The Vallee des Singes (monkey valley) is only 15 minutes by car and a must for everyone. There are many other attractions all within an hour such as Cognac, Le Marais Poitevin (Green Venice), Chauvigney and Futuroscope.
Unique benefits of property In addition to the large heated pool we have built an amazing 6 hole crazy golf course. We are close to the N10 for easy access to many local attractions. We offer a safe environment for all the family to relax and enjoy themselves without ever having to leave should they wish. We have 3 gites set around a pretty courtyard so the property lends itself well to accommodate groups of friends or family up to 16 as well as couples and individual families.

The Owner Recommends


For a fun day out ride the Velo-rail in the morning then visit one of the best Bird of Prey shows in the ruins of a castle up on the hill. Pretty new and old town with many craft shops.
