Angenay, Poitiers

We stayed here for a week in April, 2011.

The house is a lovely old french farmhouse, which has been restored so that it has every comfort you could want. The garden was enormous, with lots of space for the kids to run around in, and we did swim in the pool, even though it was probably a bit early in the season.

The kitchen was very well equipped, making it easy to cook real food (not just boil pasta) and there was a nice big barbecue as well.

The nearby village is a bit of a walk (10 minutes on the busy road) but has a very nice patisserie, as well as an epicerie with some good charcuterie.

The countryside around is lovely, with lots of different small paths to walk to, and nearby villages with good shops. There is a supermarket about 7 Kilometres away, and it is about half an hours drive to Poitiers.

David was very helpful, giving us good driving instructions to get there, and an excellent tour of the house when we arrived, and good recommendations on restaurants and sights nearby. A beautiful place to stay in the French countryside.
