“You can come with your eyes closed to Anita and Steve! The house has everything you need in the kitchen (equipment, spices, ...) as in the bathroom (hair dryer, cotton ...). Anita and Steve are very hospitable and available. The location of the house is ideal to be quiet in nature, but also to visit the castles around. We highly recommend this place and its guests !! We had a very nice time with Anita and Steve at the Mini house. Everything we need is here and there. We highly recommend it!”
We welcome you to our home, a French farmhouse, some parts dating back to 1771. Renovated to a high standard, keeping traditional features, with some quirky & artistic touches. Beautiful gardens, views & pool. The bedroom is in the old part of the house, on the 1st floor reached by it's own staircase. Large and airy, kingsize double bed. Downstairs is a private bathroom with shower, bath, basin and toilet. Perfect for one or two night's stop over, long weekend or mini break in the country.
“idyllic stay in a magnificent setting. The hosts are warm and go out of their way to satisfy us. The room and the amenities are spacious, perfectly appointed and pleasantly decorated. The space offered by the garden is sumptuous made of different landscapes like so many paintings in which the glance escapes. It was a particularly serene parenthesis. Many thanks to Gill and Rolf ...”

“We stayed 2 weeks in the gite of Jon & Kerry with our children and dog. It is a cozy and tastefully furnished holiday home. We enjoyed the garden, balcony and the wonderful swimming pool. The property is located in a small remote village. You can go hiking or cycling. During our stay it was very hot and we especially enjoyed the swimming pool. The nearest supermarket (Spar) is a 10-minute drive away. Slightly larger supermarkets (including Lidl, Aldi, Intermarche) are approximately 20 minutes from the home. Jon & Kerry have just started their airbnb and were open to questions and recommendations. They responded very quickly to our messages. The large bedroom could get very hot, but the fan made it better to hold out. Our daughters (14 and 16 years old) had the coolest room. Upon arrival there was a basket of goodies ready with a sweet card. Jon gave a tour and there was an extensive folder with information about the area. We have been to Angouleme for a day, visited the La Rochefoucauld chateau, the Aventureparc Lacs de Haute Charente, the (large) market in Piégut-Pluviers and Casinomagus (archaeological park with Roman excavations of thermal baths) in Chassenon. In Montbron you can eat well at Moulin de la Tardoire and La Toscane (Italian).”
