We offer relaxed, comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation in the heart of the Charente Limousine countryside. The generous continental breakfast (included in the price) can be taken on the terrace in warmer months. A full, english style breakfast is available at a supplement.
The village has shops including a bakery, chemist and general store. There is also a bar/restaurant. Chabanais, which is a 5 minute drive from us, also has numerous bars and cafes. However we do offer a family style evening meal, at a supplement, if you prefer. This will be prepared using fresh seasonal produce with vegetables from our garden.
There is a lounge for guests use at any time. There are games, TV and a wood burner for those colder afternoons and evenings when its nice to relax after a walk along the Vienne. For mid winter months the house also benefits from full central heating. WiFi is also available.
