an inviting escape
Situated in the Charente 45 minutes from the old town of Angoulême but also on the border with
Dordogne, this delightful location is perfect for nature lovers. The Natural Regional Park of the
Périgord Limousin is only 3 kilometres away. La Rochefoucauld and its magnificent chateau which
dominates the town is about 20 minutes away and caters for all your shopping needs. You can also
wander in the town centre which has plenty to offer, boutiques, cafés and tea shops.
Gill ran Chambres d’hôtes des Parcs in the Dordogne from 2011 to 2017 where she welcomed
guests from as far away as Australia, Japan, Israel and America and of course Europe. Conseqently
she is able to transfer her experience to her new bed and breakfast in the Charente. She is a country
lover and has several horses, two lovely dogs and a cat plus some chickens. Gill loves to walk and
ride on the numerous paths and tracks in the area. She also maintains an organic vegetable garden
for her own consumption and for the bed and breakfast.
The wellbeing of her guests on arrival and throughout their stay is very important to Gill. Meeting
people and getting to know them is a pleasure and one of the most enjoyable parts of her business.
Gill has also worked hard to ensure that the rooms and especially the beds are comfortable.
Last but not least Gill speaks fluent French which allows her to get the most out of living in France
by interacting with the local people. She also teaches French and English in her spare time.
