A fantastic week, so much for our toddler to do on site and two lovely owners. The tire was great, everything we needed.....thank you

9.5 / 10 Thornton1 13 October, 2017

Having stayed in the same gite for the past 2 years running I can say what a wonderful setting is to be found at La Vielle Fromargerie, the region has much to offer with Poitiers, Cognac and La Rochelle all within driving distance for an interesting day out.

The local villages are extremely pretty as is the nearby town of Angouleme having a wealth of history and pleasant restaurants to grab lunch.

Much of the time was spent at the farm lazing by the pool, having communal BBQ's and enjoying the fabulous hospitality of the hosts. There is plenty to do for children of all ages including a game of boules, outdoor chess or located undercover air hockey, table football and fully equipped gym.

I cannot recommend this holiday highly enough and will be hopefully back again next year to enjoy the fantastic weather, local wines and great food available.
