Newly converted old stone cottage with its own private garden, providing a real get-away-from-it-all escape for two in a beautiful rural location far away from the usual hurly-burly, but just 5km from the N10 motorway and the bustling town of Ruffec, with its restaurants, supermarkets, etc. The conversion has been recently completed, sympathetically and to a very high standard. We provide a fabulous Welcome Pack (see pics), free WiFi, UK TV with DVDs, and a large, firm and really comfortable bed
Our rural retreat is on the edge of a tiny hamlet; if we see 3 cars a day passing the road at the end of our drive, we feel honoured!
The whole of the cottage and grounds is available for your sole use during your stay. The downstairs is open-plan, with a brand new kitchen area, a beautiful heavy French oak dining table and a large comfy sofa - plus of course the huge flat screen TV, with both UK TV and a selection of DVDs for those quiet nights in. Upstairs, we have a lovely light and airy bedroom, with a very comfortable King Size bed, and a large bathroom with a big walk-in shower. Outside, the garden has a sunny lawn with reclining chairs and a parasol, as well as large gravelled areas providing locations for parking, al-fresco dining, and of course boules! There are several seating areas with tables dotted around on different sides of the house, to provide both shaded and sunny eating areas as required.

We won't be available locally during your stay, but we are very fortunate in having the services of a British caretaker. Our old friend Bill is a hugely resourceful and knowledgeable recently-retired builder, who has lived in the area for years and has a vast knowledge, both of "premises issues" and of the local area.

The Old Atelier is far enough south to get proper hot summer weather, but not so far that it's more than an easy day's drive from the UK. We're just over 400 miles from Calais on motorways which have very little traffic, even in the summer, as they head South rather than to or from Paris.
