This was a wonderful experience in our first gite in the middle of the French countryside with many interesting and unique medieval villages within easy driving distance. I can't say enough good things about the gite. It is very clean in a beautiful, well maintained garden and pool area. The gite even smelled lovely. Our hosts Sarah and Mark could not have been kinder to us helping us out when we were not able to arrive on time due to the ferry strike. We hope to visit you again one day.

Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse dans le gîte Forge de Sarah et Marc. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Sarah et Marc avec en plus une bouteille de vin Charentais et un délicieux pot de miel local. L'environnement est très agréable pour des vacances en famille ou entre amis. Sarah et Marc sont très gentils et très généreux. Toujours disponibles et aux petits soins pour qu'on se sente bien. Tout est parfait! Les villes à proximité sont très jolies et très typiques. Nous recommandons ce petit havre de paix. Encore un grand merci à Sarah et Marc. Nous reviendrons!

Un véritable gîte de charme! La possibilité de louer les trois gîtes est ideale pour un groupe ou une grande famille. Beaucoup de jeux et jouets pour enfants, belle piscine, beaucoup de choses a voir dans la région. Sarah et Marc sont très disponibles et chaleureux. Et le gîte en lui même est très confortable. Seul point "négatif ", il n'y avait pas de wifi dans notre gîte lorsque nous y étions.
