Customer Reviews

Darryl, Sarah, Alan, Ina and Hattie
Very welcoming arrival from hosts. Full compliments of basic essentials (beer and croissants!) for our first morning breakfast in this idyllic pisturesque gîte. Beautiful surrounding, that you can't help but relax in. Accommodation 5*, enoughspace two couples and the pickle. Hattie's favorite times when asked is spending time with her family in the pool! Ulysses's (or lunatic as Hats called him) was a hit, loved apples and carrotts, added to the charm. Spent the week watching the sunsets in the evenings added to the charm of theStables. We will return soon! P.S.: Weather perfect but one day's rain which we spent in the cave in Villars. Highly recomeend Aubeterre, Saint Emilion and the restaurant in Barnac - 8 courses for a cheap price, menu unknown (no menu) - take it or leave it!

Hannah, Emily, Lee and Caroline
We've had a great time, playing by the pool, feedingDave (Ulysses) the Donkey and visiting Angoulême and Aubeterre. Sue and Brian were as always, very welcoming. Thank you very much Sue and Brian, enjoy the wine xxx

Phoebe
This place is perfect. I loved it in every way. The fact that there are places to go as well this is amazing. We will most definitely be coming back. Thank you very much for having us.

Emma
What can I say?!? Picture perfect holiday in every way. The Stables is perfect with everything you need and a fantastic pool and beautiful views. We had a great time as a family, enjoying the sunsets, BBQ's and lots of laughs. Ulysses the donkey made us laugh everyday and enjoyed the apples we took him. Sue and Brian are fantastic, there when you need them andinvisible when when you don't. Lovely markets in Chalais and Riberac. We will be back :)

Matt, Helen and William

This holiday has been amazing, the rooms, the pool, the people (Sue and Brian) but most of all having time with my family. The donkey (Ulcies) is very friendly and we loved going to see him and to give him some food. So thank you for this amazing holiday we all enjoyed it, thank you soooo much.

Robin, Cloe, Jane, Katie and Nici
Lovely place, lovely views, lovely hosts. Many thanks for all your kindnesses. Quiet, peaceful rest with wonderful hosts who are incredibly helpful. We enjoyed the deck, the pool and the sunsets. Many thanks! Magnifique, love the buddhas, will miss Ulysses! Very welcoming, beautiful gardens, fantastic views, no better place to watch the summer solstice! Thank you. LOVED IT!!

Beautiful place with the most wonderful views. The house is very easy to use and has great showers, linen and everything you needfor a wonderful holiday. And Sue is a tremendous host. Thank you.

Despite the ghastly weather during our first week, we have had a fantastic and relaxing 2 weeks in the Stables. Have visited lots of towns and villages in the area. We had constant visits from a woodpecker and finches. Disappointed we didn't see any boar or deer. We'll miss Ulyses and your siamese cat who made himself comfortable on our sun chairs every morning. Thanks Sue and Brian for a great stay.

Super! Lovely to stay see whilst on yoga week - quiet, relaxed and beautiful! Many thanks for squeezing me in last minute. Happy continuation.

Fabulous accommodation in a lovely setting. Great to have 3 en-suite bedrooms and loved the sunsets by the pool.

Ulyses, we are going to miss him so much as well! Everytime he ee-awa we all laugh. He had become part of our daily routine revisiting him and giving him a fresh red apple each day. And if you fancy a challenge try and beat our keepie-uppie score of 56 using the orange ball in the box outside! Good luck! We will miss this place.

What can we say, beautiful house, beautiful gardens, beautiful pool, beautiful weather and perfect hosts. We have truly had the best time here at The Stables and have only left to go to the local shop. Sue and Brian you are the most fantastic hosts and we look forward to hopefully returning next year.

Stunning scenery and despite the weathers best efforts, we are leaving feeling very relaxed (no mean feat with a 3 and 6 year old!). Thanks for a great stay! Kids loved the pool.

After just nine months we came back again! We've had a super time, spending many days in and around the house but also travelling around in the area to get a feel for the place. We are all in awe of the sunsets here, and it is just so tranquil. We've loved our stay and are sad to leave. Sue and Brian, you've been fantastic hosts yet again. Thank you so much.

Beautiful house, pool, view, garden. Comfy bed and amazing showers! Thank you for letting us stay! We love to be back.

A beautiful location with everything we needed.I loved the pool and the view - Thank you for a super break. I am hoping to come back soon.

What a fabulous relaxing place - we had a lovely timed hope to come back. Sue and Brian are wonderful hosts and made us very welcome -will recommend to all our friends. Thank you.

My, what a wonderful holiday we have had, such lovely people (Sue and Brian) They have made us feel at home from the beginning to the end of our holiday. We will definitely be returning next year.

What can I say, I have stayed in Gites and holidayed all over France, but this is one of the best so far. Nothing is too much trouble for Sue and Brian to make our stay as nice as possible. Great views, great accommodation, great central base for touring the area, and fantastic hosts. We will be coming back here again next time I visit France. Wrong time of year to use the pool but it looked very inviting. Thank you both for an excellent holiday. We will be back!!!!

Thank you for a lovely week. The Stables made a lovely comfortable base for us, the pool was used daily. The night sky was clear and perfect for star spotting.

We have all had a lovely stay at The Stables - the accommodation is great and the pool is just wonderful. Thank you for all your attention to detail and care in making this a wonderful holiday. We really appreciate it and would love to come back again at some future point, especially if you can guarantee such fantastic weather! Au Revoir

Bennetts family
Beautiful and spotlessly clean accommodation. Sue and Brian are wonderful hosts, very thoughful and kind. We loved the market at Riberac and Chalais. A nice restaurant in Nonac. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne is worthy of a visit. Saint-Aulaye was a thumbs up from the kids.

The property was in a lovely location, was quite simply and tastefully decorated, as well as being comfortable and well-maintained; its pool and surrounding area was lovely, with stunning views over open countryside. We were warmly welcomed by the owners, who very kindly provided basic supplies for our first night – they were on hand to help during our stay if we needed them but were in no way intrusive. The area is peaceful but is not far from plenty of amenities – we enjoyed tennis and kayaking at Aubeterre sur Dronne and the market at Chalais, neither more than half an hour away. We will certainly return for another holiday and would recommend it to friends.

We all enjoyed our stay throughly. The villa was welcoming and comfortable - Sue and Brian have created a lovely sanctuary in the French countryside. They were wonderful hosts and so helpful. Thank you!

Wonderful as always. You are great hosts. Thank you for you walm welcome. See you in 3 weeks time.

Thank for a lovely stay in your gite. Pool was superb and we can't get over the views. We love it here and will be back!
