Chez Vista, Next to Aubeterre-sur-dronne. Awarded the prettiest village in France 1993

by Sarah Donnelly
(Ragot, Laprade 16390, Poitiou Charentes)


Short walk from Aubeterre and an even shorter to the bank of the river dronne on the Charente/ Dordogne border.

With 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4 - possible extra bed if needed. Bathroom with both bath and shower, fully equipt kitchen with lounge area and large dining table, in ground pool and gardens with outside furniture.

Spacious with a double bed, the main bedroom has a wardrobe with chest of drawers and views of the pool and countryside. The second bedroom has bunk beds with a chest of drawers.

All linen is supplied. The bathroom has a large bath with shower and vanity unit with a mirror lit by spot lights & a safe source of electricity for hairdryer, shaver etc. We supply towels but not pool towels .

The kitchen, lounge and dining fascilites are all provided in one VERY large room (not divided by anything like stairs or low beams). The spacious kitchen area has everything you would need. Fridge freezer, oven, microwave, cutlery, pans, towels, iron, toaster, kettle and much more.

In the hallway there is room to place another single bed on request still leaving space for suitcases etc.

The television that has English satelite is next to the large fire place with equally large wood burning stove, for which we will supply wood for in the cold months. The huge dining table that seats 12 has views of the garden and pool.

Just outside the front door is a south facing patio with a table and chairs that looks onto the pool and picturesque countryside - perfect for meals or smokers as we do not permit smoking indoors.

Enjoy a peaceful stroll around the landscaped garden with features such as the well or on the surrounding countryside and watch the delightful sunsets we get here, or take a dip in the in ground solar heated pool surrounded by decking.

The gite dates back to the 16th century when it was once part of a farm and produced wine! The other part of the property is occupied by the owner and his family - they are willing to help with translations and with what there is to see in the area - leaflets included in your welcome pack.

We also have a large trampoline to tire the kids out come bedtime!

Do not hesitate to book as this is a very popular area of France. Questions and enquiries will be replied to promptly.

We are only 15 minute drive from Riberac where there is an international market every Friday morning and only 10 minutes from Chalais where there is again another market on a Monday morning. Chalais has a link to the TGV railway.

The airport of Angouleme-Cognac and of Bergerac are at an equal distance to the Gite ( about an hour in the car). Bordeaux is about an hour and a half drive and La Rochelle just under 3 hours. We are only about 3 and a half hours from the Spanish border !
