Management response:

Hi Helen and Nick, the loss of our Wi-Fi is a very rare event. Whilst the Wi-Fi is generally more than adequate for our guests we have recently heard that we are to expect cable internet in the near future which will hopefully improve access for both ourselves and our guests.

We only stayed 2 nights while driving through France but we were made to feel very welcome at this beautiful cottage. We turned up late on Sunday without food and Anna and Jim gave us food for dinner from their own supplies. We had a great day at the adventure park on their recommendation. Very impressed.

Management response:

It was lovely to meet you. We hope that the rest of your road trip was enjoyable and that you got home safely.

We really enjoyed having you stay and hearing about your days exploring. We learned so much about fishing from Chris and were so pleased that he managed to catch all those carp. We would love to have you back.

About the neighbourhood
The area has much to offer in terms of its many chateaus, pretty villages and history. Many come for the rest and relaxation but here is much to do in terms of activity for those that want to be more active. Fishing on the Charente lakes is very popular. There is also the facility to swim off the beaches on the lakes and to boat upon the lakes. The area is very popular with cyclists and walkers. Horse riding and golf are nearby, with an Adventure Park for adults and children only 4km away in Massignac. There is a bird watching centre only 5 minutes walk away from the cottage. There are bakers and local restaurants nearby in the villages of Massignac, Pressignac and Lesignac-Durand with a large supermarket in Chabanais, which is 7km away. Historical chateaus are nearby, alongside the wor... more

How to get there
Airport: Limoges: 40.0 km
Railway: Chabanais: 7.0 km
Flights to Limoges from the UK are regular and inexpensive via Ryan Air. Car hire is available at the airport. Many friends have booked a car for a week at a cost of around £60 per week. The car is best booked through Ryan Air when booking flights.
For those that don't mind driving there are a number of ferries from the UK and we are happy to advise on routes. We generally travel on either the Portsmouth-Caen or the Newhaven-Dieppe ferries.
