Had a fab 2 weeks here in La Grue. The gites are fantastic - clean, comfortable and well-equipped.
The pool is kept immaculate and pizza night will keep you stuffed for days afterwards.
Carol will give you all the tips on places to go. ..we suggest the beach at Royan (go midweek), Bordeaux is highly recommended as is Saintes with its Roman Amphitheatre. Closer to home, 'Gateaux' in Tusson, Angouleme and the distilleries in Cognac are great. There's so much to do, we couldn't fit it all in.
The area has 'dark skies'... the difference is remarkable.
A beautiful area and fabulous hosts. No doubts, we'll be back.
Best wishes from Howard and Sarah.
