The
Experience

Charming owners and animals everywhere, from boxer dog to donkey to hens! Brigitte and Patrick gave up telecommunications for their dream of the country and the result is this heart-warming, small-village B&B. Avid collectors, they have decorated their roomy 16th-century house with eclectic flair, and old and new rub shoulders merrily; discover doll’s house furniture and French cartoon characters, old armoires and antique treasures. Harmony breathes from walls and woodwork, your hosts are endlessly thoughtful, food is slow, exotic, organic (and delicious), and families are truly welcome.

Reviews

We have had two nights at le clos de la Garenne recently. We so enjoyed the first visit that we arranged another night there on our return journey. Brigitte and Patrick were such delightful hosts and we loved their house and garden. We look forward to another visit before too long.

Janette, South brent

Delightful hosts and Brigitte was highly organised and helpful. Room was great with fabulous new shower room. The eclectic mix of home made conserves at breakfast was delicious and fun to try, with her home made breads.

Andy

We stayed a week and enjoyed every minute. The stunning countryside and wonderful wildlife made for a relaxing cycling holiday. Couple this with the hospitality, friendliness and good humour of Brigitte and Patrick, and we could have wanted for nothing more.

Peter

This is the fourth time that we have stayed here on our way down to the Dordogne. It is excellent. Brigitte and Patrick are wonderful hosts, the evening meals are very tasty and exceptional value. The rooms are all very clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast with Brigitte's home made jams are memorable. A super place to stay to either break your journey or to satay for a few nights to explore the area. We will return!

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Brigitte & Patrick François

  • Close by : Surgères, our lively local town with its amazing Romanesque church inside le Château, open market, small shops and restaurants, TGV railway station, and its lovely flat countryside around, ideal for biking on paths linking fields and villages.
  • West : Gorgeous La Rochelle at 27 km will catch city lovers meanwhile nature lovers will enjoy following the coastline. Châtelaillon-Plage &Fouras, 2 nice beach resorts ideal for families, and why not experimenting a cruise to Ile d'Aix & Fort Boyard ?
  • West : Ile de Ré bridge is half an hour driving (as the airport if you come over by plane). This 30 km long flat island is worth a visit with its 10 villages, salt marshes, beaches, fortifications. Biking is THE way to discover it and also its lifestyle.
  • South : Rochefort stands on the river Charente upstream the estuary & tiny Ile Madame.. The city used to be the Royal Arsenal where you can still visit the Corderie Royale and the Hermione among other museums including so special Ecole de Médecine Navale !
  • East : Discover a hilly landscape where crops, woods and vines altern around charming villages with Romanesque churches and beautiful St Jean d'Angély. Château de Dampierre sur Boutonne & the Donkey sanctuary, or Zoodyssée de Chizé will complete your day.
  • North : Marais Poitevin is a huge territory where water and earth have been domesticated by men for centuries. Its famous Green Venice is unique in Europe : walk or bike along the canals or better rent a punt and look at NATURE! Also villages and abbeys...
