Welcome to a warm, relaxing B&B in simple but expansive grounds near Aubetterre-Sur-Dronne, one of the most exquisite villages in France

Strolling distance from the village of St Severin (dropping down to a river beach with a bar and kayak hire) is a tall, quirky 19th-century ‘chalet’, all wooden balconies and steep gables. Owners Julie and Colin, generous and delightful, have masterminded a magnificent restoration and decorated in traditional French style. Big friendly bedrooms will please you with their rugs, original floors and fine linen, their flamboyant English wallpapers and opulent touches - the white and gold four-poster will raise a smile - while super bathrooms have garden views, of sweeping sloping lawns scattered with trees, and a saltwater pool.
