If you find yourself lucky enough to be planning a break in Vouvant, then you will not find a nicer retreat than at Le Vivier. We arrived on a warm day to a warm reception and a wonderfully cool interior. This is not a modern, characterless, build-to-let property, but a lived-in and loved home. Everything you need is to hand, from the freezer to the garlic crusher. The beds were very comfortable and the showers had a constant supply of hot water. The house has a wonderful lounge, which, with the shutters closed at peak hot times of the day, provided us with a welcome cool retreat. The enclosed garden has shade in the mornings and evenings, making it perfect for breakfast and dinner outside, and is a real suntrap during the day. The charcoal bbq was great for outdoor cooking. While we were there at the height of the good weather, we feel that this would also be a really comfortable and cosy in colder weather, having a large wood-burning stove in the lounge. It’s a mere 7 to 10 minute walk to the boulangerie in the extremely pretty town of Vouvant, which is well served with restaurants and well stocked shop. From our first email, we found the owner to be extremely helpful and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this lovely property.

My wife and I stayed in le vivier on the outskirts of the beautiful village of vouvant.We could walk easily to the heart of the village which offered all the amenities necessary for a relaxing holiday in an authentic rural french community.The locals were most accommodating and if British company is required the village has a cafe run by an English x-pat.We often enjoyed walks which were scenic ,with some of the views breathtaking ,frequently ending up in the other cafe classically French.
The house was a joy to use as a base.Everything we required was available and with 3 bedrooms ,very spacious.I cannot praise it enough.

Myself, my partner and her two teenage kids holidayed here in July / August 2012. The house is fabulous - very spacious with a lovely cool lounge, TV, DVD, Music system, indoor and outdoor games for the kids and a well stocked bookcase. Kitchen / dining area was well equipped with access to a decked and lawned garden complete with BBQ facilities. Garden gets the sun throughout the day and is ideal for sunbathing on the loungers provided. Bedrooms and bathrooms were well equipped and master bedroom was charmingly decorated and spacious with a comfy bed. Location is ideal with the beautiful village of Vouvant only 5 minutes walk away, and many lovely coastal resorts about an hour's drive away. Plenty of car parking space adjacent to the house. I would highly recommend this holiday home to anyone wanting a nice relaxing holiday away from all the hustle and bustle.
