“Relaxing and in a great location”
Reviewed 27 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018
1
person found this review helpful

We spent a week here in July 2018 and really enjoyed our stay. Bill and Helene are very welcoming but unobtrusive hosts. The house had plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 kids, and the pool and hot tub got lots of use when we weren't out and about.

The house is in a nice quiet country location but only a couple of minutes' drive away from the local town (Chalais), which has a well stocked Intermarche and several restaurants and other shops.

There are lots of other towns, river and lake beaches, markets and sights to see within a short drive in any direction.

We really enjoyed our stay and even bought a painting by Helene to remind us of a great holiday!

“Lovely relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just returned from Le Petit after a week of glorious weather. Plenty of space in the house for our family of 5. We would play boules in the morning (provided at the house) followed by a game or 2 of ping pong (all weather table provided by the house) and then head down to the pool to cool off in the heat of the afternoon, I was slightly disappointed that the pool wasn't right by the house but a minute walk down the drive so not so bad. The pool is heated so not so cold you had to brace yourself to get in but cold enough to find relief from the sun. The house is situated 5minutes down the road from the market town of Chalais, the market held on Monday morning is huge with all sorts for sale. All in all a lovely stay.

“Relaxing stay in quiet yet convienient location”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Everything you need for a relaxing stay provided. Location peaceful but within easy reach (by car) of local town with market, restaurants, shops and supermarkets (even open Sunday morning). Being located in the South West of the Charente region you are well placed to visit the sites of the area and the neighbouring Dordogne all within a relatively short drive. We would recommend the property, communication with owners was excellent throughout, wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

“A perfect place to explore the surrounding area”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We all had a competely relaxing two week's stay at Le Petit Chene. The accommodation provided everything we needed with its three bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and terraces. The pool, Wi-Fi and English television channels were an added bonus. A few favourites included the Roman amphitheatre, local markets, tree top climbing and spending time around the pool, although there were many more. Thank you Helene and Bill for a fantastic holiday.
