The
Experience

Guests have the run of upstairs, where two airy rooms for couples have homely touches and low beams. One is en-suite, the other with a private bathroom adjacent. They share an open plan space with games and home cinema, a gift for a rainy day.  Eat breakfast on the terrace above the flowery garden, or cosily in the family kitchen. The pigeonnier next to the house is a beauty, walking tracks lead to nearby villages and Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, full of alleyways and arty workshops, is delightful. Take time to chat with your music aficionado hosts Alex and Joy; they have dogs, cats and chickens too – it’s informal and fun.

Reviews

Beautiful b&b in a lovely area with accommodating hosts.

Helen, Exeter

Alex and Joy were extremely accommodating and kind. We arrived very late, which they said was no trouble, to find a feast waiting for us. They were friendly and kind and were brilliant in recommending local areas of interest and restaurants. We have been back to stay with them again and have already recommended them to friends.
