    Hello I’m lisa and welcome. I have a wonderful 1901 house in a rural village of a few thousand people. Located in the centre of the village, we board a river with excellent fishing and swimming, baker butcher supermarket bank etc. Lovely cycling and running routes and I have bikes - including one with a carriage that you can pack a picnic and head off. Local train to Bordeaux , La Rochelle, Poitiers all less than 1.5 hours. There is a massive garden including vege patch. Fall asleep to the sound of the river, go swimming in the river with the ducks! Take the boat out on the river.

    Its our holiday home so when we are here there is always plenty of stuff to do. Garden clearing, painting, stone work, veg garden maintenance, laying new paths and the like.

    I have a very relaxed lifestyle, my house is your home. Plenty of drop in friends all the time for social apéros. I tend to run on a "help yourself" basis and dont ask for permission. Fridge and pantry is always full. You can make meals or have snacks at your leisure. Im more of a grazer than an eater- so you get the run of the kitchen and its stores to make yourself breakfast or lunch. We tend to take meals together- certainly for dinner which is about the only meal I eat!

    I’m a very relaxed host- fridge and freezer yours to raid whenever you want. I don’t get up for breakfast but you can knock yourself out in the kitchen. I’m More of a 11-7pm worker. So breakfast and lunch will be make your own from the fridge - you can write down what you want me to buy. We will , at least, have an evening meal together which we will enjoy in the dining room/ al fresco or tv. Or feel free to use the bbq outside and hang in the garden- plenty of nooks and hammocks and the like.

    I have many friends with gites who have provided me with lists of all the local attractions. The local train station (Luxe) is 5 min drive away which runs to Angouleme and Poitiers. From there you can reach Bordeaux or La Rochelle within 45 mins. Lovely lakes. Great fishing at my place. Plenty of bikes. Cognac 25 mins drive or 2 hours hike for river cruises , kayaking , cognac tours. Jarnac offers the same and is closer.
