Fauvette     6th August 2020 *****


Nous avons passé une excellente semaine au gîte de Stephen et Catherine. Ils sont très accueillants, discrets et très attentifs au bien être de chacun. Le gîte fauvette dans lequel nous étions est très spacieux. La vue est superbe. Le terrain est immense. La piscine est très bien. Tout est très propre et bien entretenu. Bref on recommande à 200%

IDYLLIC - What an absolutely perfect location. Have been coming to France for the last 30 years and have never had a more perfect holiday. Catherine and Steve are fabulous, unobtrusive, but, yet there if you need them, a perfect couple. Everything has been thought of and provided, golf umbrella, fly swats, even shopping bags !.


Have already booked return visit, cannot recommend highly enough.

Wonderful hosts Stephen and Catherine have been very welcoming, useful advice and local knowledge.Happy to help in any way. Beautiful setting and facilities couldn't task for more things to do when you wanted to but equally a place to unwind and relax by the pool which we certainly made use of in the heatwave. Really enjoyed our time here and will be returning.

Alouette ***** July 2019


Wish we could have stayed longer!! Stephen and Catherine were amazing hosts! From the moment we drove up to the gite, we felt welcomed. Not only did we receive a welcome basket with homemade morello cherry jam, fresh bread and chocolate biscuits, but the fridge was supplied with staples such as butter, cold water and most importantly, milk for our three yr. old. After traveling all day, we were grateful for the amenities. Stephen and Catherine were very helpful with everything from getting allergy meds to finding good restaurants in the area. I give Stephen and Catherine five stars for their hospitality, and another five stars for their fabulous gite! The gite was spacious and perfect for kids; Our little one enjoyed the pool, toys and a swing set. Although our stay was short, it was very memorable. If we find ourselves vacationing in the area again, Tillac will be the gite we choose. Thanks so much!!

Amazing experience and beautiful place!! I would repeat for sure!!! The place is so beautiful near of the city. Stephen and Catherine are charming and very attentive. If someone wants a place where to disconnect and enjoy a peaceful place is there.


El lugar es muy bonito cerca de la ciudad. Stephen y Catherine son encantadores y muy atentos a lo que se pueda necesitar. Si alguien quiere desconectar y disfrutar de un lugar con calma sin duda ese es el lugar correcto.

Thanks to Steve and Catherine for a fabulous week staying in Souris, one of your 3 gites. Souris was absolutely charming, spacious and positioned perfectly, backing onto the garden and swimming pool, which overlooked the beautiful rambling fields. The whole area was quiet and peaceful, making our stay so relaxing. The gites are only a few miles from all the main roads and so very convenient for excursions. Angouleme being approx. 5 miles away. Steve and Catherine were charming hosts, bending over backwards to ensure a great holiday. We can highly recommend these gites and will definitely be returning.

Well, week 2 of our stay here was as fabulous as expected, Souris has everything we needed and we loved waking up in the morning, with the view over the pool and fields beyond.Once again, this was the ultimate in relaxing holidays. I should have written this a few days ago, as now I feel all emotional about leaving this place and returning to the UK. You’re both doing a great job - long may it continue.We’ll see you again in 2019, fingers crossed.

Beautiful gîtes in a little piece of paradise. Steve and Catherine are excellent hosts and if you are looking for a relaxing holiday this is the place for you. Gîtes are presented to an excellent standard and facilities include the pool which is well maintained as well as plenty of outside games like table tennis, basketball and archery. If you prefer to read or chill out you can laze in one of the hammocks under the trees Plenty of places to visit in the area should you wish to explore. Steve & Catherine have excellent knowledge of the area to assist with planning days out. Staying at a Tillac was one of the best family holidays we have ever had and we will definitely be going back!

Alouette - July 2018 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


Great!!!  We stayed at Aloutte for a week from July 22nd till July 29th 2018. Stephen and Catherine are excellent hosts, very friendly and always helpful. The cottage itself looks great, it was very clean and well-maintained. The beds are good, the kitchen has everything you need, and it's great to have a barbecue in the courtyard. Best of all is the location: in amongst the sunflower fields and really out in the country. Great place to watch the stars. Stephen got us a number of Cycling routes and we went cycling from Alouette 2 times. There are no epic climbs (after all it's not the Alpes) but it is a gorgeous part of France and there's hardly any traffic. Perfect for cycling. We had a great time at Alouette and would certainly recommend it! Published

We found the new owners very welcoming and friendly. It is our 3rd visit to the Gites and is still beautifully presented Gites and gardens. Gite was very clean and Welcome Pack was much appreciated.


Angouleme, Talmont, La Rochelle, Oradour Sur Glane are highly recommended to visit.


We wish them all the very best for the future. I'm sure we will be back
