Autumn or perhaps Christmas in the Charente - mainly sunny days, beautiful walks, stargazing in unpolluted skies & historical tours, then curling up near the woodburner during the evening. Our little village has the best Christmas decorations for miles around. Cookery lessons & evening meals by arrangement.
We have two traditional Charente cottages - easily accessible from Limoges Airport (cheap flights from Stansted, Southampton, Bristol, Manchester & East Midland's airports).
The ideal place to relax in our peaceful garden - with a mass of Spring bulbs - write the book you've always promised yourself, go for beautiful walks/bike rides or explore The Richard the Lionheart Trail & beautiful countryside.
Gites have electric heating during winter months, one also having a woodburner (initial log supply provided - wood at cost thereafter) - but daytimes are generally warm until the end of October & then from early March (when our 4,000 bulbs start to appear). Christmas can be a romantic affair, with mistletoe in the garden.
We also offer gourmet evening meals by arrangement.
A very beautiful part of France & handy for Limoges airport - which has cheap flights & car hire. Within 5 minutes walk, we have an excellent village shop, butcher, post office & bistro/bar. British TV in gite.
For more info & to book see AirBnB Lesterps - then click on 'Gite du Jardin' or/and 'Petit Gites Lesterps' which are very visible - or Email: email@example.com for better no-commission rates.
Our larger gite sleeps four (2 on a mezzanine floor above the main bedroom). We are not suitable for people with walking difficulties - but have an excellent kitchen with a RangeMaster cooker for enthusiastic cooks - or someone wishing to run a Cookery Course/Painting Course in this beautiful/historic area of France.
Special rates for out of season long-stay house hunters - especially during winter months. Our little gite for only £100 per week + electricity at cost (one month minimum) - see http://www.gourmetbritain.com/about/news/?id=392
