Great stay for 11 nights! 29/07/19 - 09/08/19
It was our first holiday to France and considering we initially had problems with the sat nav our drive down all worked out well in the end!
On our arrival Irene and Tim made us very welcome and gave me and the 2 children an introduction / tour around the gite surrounding buildings. The gite itself was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to make our holiday a success!
Outside is a lovely courtyard where the children can play, this also leads to a bigger area and field if you need to give the children a run out in our case we played football and rounders. There is also a swing and seesaw. The pool area is a nice and clean and big enough for a family of 4.
Nearest supermarket that we used was in Champagne Mouton about 10-15 mins away.
Nearby there are loads of things to do, all within a 30-45 minute drive. We did river swimming, kayaks, lakes with Aqua jump, local market in Ruffec, Monkey Valley, Confolens. And plenty of other things that we just didn't fit in.
Overall we had a wonderful time and i would recommend this property for anyone visiting, the children were already asking during our journey home they wanted to come back next year!
Thanks to Irene & Tim for a great holiday,
We hope to return next year.

Beautiful gite in a lovely area, loads to do and everything you need! Loved it!
We had an amazing 10 night stay at this beautiful gite in August.
The owner, Irene, who lives next door couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful, giving us loads of ideas to do in the area. Having lived there a while she had loads of local knowledge of what to do with the kids, and where was good to avoid the crowds in the summer holidays!
If you want to stay in, the gite has loads to do on site - a lovely garden area to relax / eat outdoors, table tennis, swing and seesaw, and a lovely little pop-up pool that was great for the kids on the lovely hot days! We also used some of the selection of bikes to go for a lovely ride one day which we all loved!
Nearby there are loads of things to do, all within a 30-40 minute drive. We did roman ruins (great), river swimming, kayaks, lakes with flumes, dance and music festival, local markets, swimming pools, exotic animal parks and feel we barely scratched the surface.
The nearby towns of Confolens and Champagne Mouton are great for all the amenities you need - supermarkets, fuel, boulangeries etc. And ate only 15 mins or so to drive to.
Inside the gite the lounge area is great, and Irene provides plenty of books to read, dvds to watch, board games and there are a good few channels on the tv to chose from (although only the kids watched it)!!
The kitchen is well equipped, with an oven, microwave and washing machine. The only downsides were no dishwasher (1st world problems), but the washing machine was a better use of space. Also there is no freezer, but Irene was happy to freeze our cool blocks in hers for us!
Upstairs is cozy but comfortable. The kids loved the bunk beds and the main bed is pretty big and comfy. The bathroom was nice and the shower amazingly powerful and hot!
The whole place was spotlessly clean, with linen and towels provided aplenty. Even had a couple of bottles of vino to drink for us on arrival!
Irene is really lovely, and not intrusive at all despite living on site. It was lovely to hear about how she and her hubby had developed the place and she showed us round the next phase which promises to be amazing!! We invited Irene to join us for a bbq on the last night and we had a good laugh chatting into the evening under the stars - and the gas bbq provided was a nice touch!
All in all, would give it an 11 out of 10. Loved it and loved the area. Can’t wait to visit again to see more of the region and enjoy the seemingly constant summer sunshine!!
Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Madame Beeby dans un logement très propre et magnifiquement aménagé. La disponibilité de la piscine et autres aménagement (balançoire, obbogan pour les petits, ...). Le gîte disposée également d'un abris pour une voiture. Cette location peux être le départ de nombreuses excursions dans les villages environnants soit à pied ou en ve!o .
Lovely setting in rural france
Wonderful setting not far from benest. Irene greeted us on our arrival and provided as many details of local and not so local amenities as you could need. She was always available if needed but never imposed herself upon us. The gite still appears recently renovated and to a good spec. Loads of activities on site and having bikes to go to the local rivers, bar, shop, tennis court etc was brilliant. It is clearly advertised as for young or small families and we took a slight risk taking 14 year olds who are quite large. Theyfelt their room was a little small but it was still more than adequate for them and didn't detract from the stay at all, particularly as there is so much space elsewhere in the gite and on site. I wasn't aware that if we needed an internet connection it would cost more as it is satellite based but to be honest it was a pleasure to go offline for a while although there is mobile phone reception. We would visit again and thoroughly enjoyed staying with Irene and meeting her grandson. Thanks again for making our time with you so pleasant.
Peace, relaxation and sunshine
This property is an absolute gem in a scenic rural location. We were welcomed by Irene with a glass of wine and a full tour of the property and the outdoor amenities. When enquiring I asked about fishing, and Irene had sourced information and much to our surprise there was fishing equipment we could use as well as bicycles to get to fishing locations if we did not wish to drive.
The gite is as described but the extras in the kitchen are a marvel, with much more storage space than we expected. The bedrooms have plenty of storage space too. There is a powerful shower in the bathroom and lots of fluffy towels are available. The lounge is very comfortable and in the evening once the sun had set we were able to sit and watch a DVD. As it was late April when we visited we did need to use the electric radiators, and these soon took the chill off.
The outside courtyard is ideal for al fresco dining and there is seating placed in sun spots all around the property.
We had visited the area before but there was a great deal of information on places to visit. Irene is your personal Tourist Information officer as her 20 years knowledge is very useful. We visited recommended restaurants where we found the food and service to be of a great quality. We also visited the Irish Tea rooms in Confolens and walked on the very ancient bridge in this lovely old town.
There are several supermarkets nearby and anything you specifically need Irene can advise you on where to go, she will also advise you on which wines are to your taste and budget.
We will definitely use this property again, maybe bring the grandchildren next time to take advantage of the pool and the various games and activities supplied.
We left this property feeling very relaxed and also sporting spring sun tans, which was great considering it was snowing in England at the time.
Thank you Irene hope to see you again soon.
So glad that you enjoyed your holiday and we look forward to see you again soon.
We hope that your sun tan is lasting for you to show your friends,
Peace, tranquility and sunshine heaven
Upon arrival greeted by Irene and a welcome glass of wine. Explicit tour of this gite given, it has so many extras above my expectations. I mentioned in my initial enquiry that we were interested in fishing, Irene had all the relevant information and also had fishing equipment and bicycles for us to use. The provision of Al Fresco dining and strategically placed seating to catch all the best sun rays in the pretty courtyard area which is secure.
Inside the kitchen is a revelation with lots of storage and a full sized cooker. The lounge area is very comfortable with lots of books to read and DVDs to watch once the sun has set. Upstairs the bedrooms are also very comfortable and spacious, with lots of storage areas, the bathroom has a full size bath and a powerful shower.
We had visited this area before, but there was great deal of information available on where to go and what to do, and Irene's 20 years knowledge of the area means we had our own Tourist information officer on site. We visited the restaurants
