Les Chevilloux

Surrounded by sunflower fields near Rochefoucald and Angoulême, Les Chevilloux is a beautiful, wisteria clad, traditional, Charentais farmhouse with 2 charming, stand alone, holiday gîtes. The complex is believed to have been built in the early 1800’s

Both gîtes enjoy their own front door and private patio area in which to dine “al fresco”. They are fully equipped with all that you will need for a fabulous self catering holiday. There is also plenty of parking on site.

Our 10m x 5m swimming pool is always popular with all guests and you are welcome to wander through the 1.5 acres of well kept gardens where you will find many seating areas in which to enjoy the quieter moments, if you feeling more energetic there is a large paddock for fun and games with the children.
