What if something mechanically major happens?

  • Local, highly experienced classic car owning mechanic available.

What if I need parts?

What has the accommodation got to offer?

  • 4 gites to choose from so we can take up to about 24 people in total.

  • 2 swimming pools,one exterior 40’ X 20’ and a smaller interior pool.

  • About 8 acres of safe land so plenty of space to relax and unwind or sip a Pineau des Charentes around the pool

  • Plenty of excellent local restaurants to suit all budgets but be sure to give yourselves a treat in the local Chateau with it’s renowned restaurant.

  • Not far from a lake with it’s own clubhouse which offers squash,swimming,beauty therapies and lots of pampering for the ladies.

Of course it’s not only a location for the lads!

Plenty for the ladies who don’t want to get their hands dirty…from sightseeing local places of interest to shopping in nearby Angouleme, ,Cognac, St.Emilion or the beautiful city of Bordeaux is about an hour away.
