We asked the owners to provide us with some details of Les Hirondelles and this is what they told us.
Les Hirondelles is nestled in the Charente area of the Poitou Charente. It is easily accessible from all ports, being a 5 and a half hour drive from Le Harvre, and an 8 hour drive from the Eurotunnel. Nearest airport is Poitiers at an hour away, and Limoges at 90mins drive.
We have two beautifully appointed gites, sleeping up to 10 people if you wanted a large party, or 4 and 6 if you prefer privacy.
It has a beautiful pool area which is fully enclosed, making it a sun trap for those who like to sunbathe. There is a BBQ courtyard at the back, with seating area, for those who like to try their hand at outdoor cooking.
At the front of the gites there is a garden area with separate seating, a hangar for parking cars and bikes undercover, and also further seating area plus bar/fridge for those who want to avoid the sun.
Places of interest to visit are Cognac, Angoueleme, Oradour sur Glane. We are totally secluded in a tiny hamlet of 7 properties with the nearest town being 4km away, with a small selection of bars/restaurants, butchers and bakers.
For those who don't wish to cook for themselves, we offer an evening meal catering service for a reasonable price. In early season from May to June, we offer a minimum 3 night stay, but July and August are full weeks only, with changeover being on a Saturday.
The owners live on site so are on hand to help if required.
