THE GITE - La Sonnette

La Sonnette has recently been renovated and can comfortably accommodate 4-6 people.   We are on the edge of the village of Saint Laurent de Ceris surrounded by the beautiful Charante countryside.   In the village you will find a very good boulangerie offering freshly baked bread and pastries (and the best eclairs in France – well we think so). There is also an amazing restaurant serving lunches and evening meals – this is a gem of a restaurant. We have a spacious garden where you can relax in the evening after exploring the lovely Charente countryside, Haute Charente lakes, towns and villages, and also further afield - we are close to the Limousin and Dordogne borders. Please have a look at our things to do in the area page, which lists local and further afield activities; this changes on a frequent basis as there is always something new and exciting happening. La Sonnette is very well equipped to ensure you have everything you need to relax and unwind and enjoy your holiday.

La Sonnette is set over three floors with the kitchen located in the original cellar and can be accessed directly from the garden and via a stone spiral staircase in the living room. The L-shaped living room is accessed through a hallway via the front door on the first floor and on the second floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The first floor has a day bed which converts to a double bed and can accommodate two other guests. Outdoor table and chairs are provided for relaxing in the garden and there is a small library (where you are welcome to swap books), and some games for adults and children to enjoy.

A cot (bedding also supplied) and highchair is available on request, as is toddlers plastic plates and cutlery.

On your arrival you will find a welcome pack with our complements, comprising tea, coffee, milk, water and a bottle of wine.   If there are any additional items (within reason) which you would like us to obtain for you before your arrival please let us know, and we will endeavour to provide them for you and let you know the cost.

All bed linen and towels are provided.

There is a parking space for one car.

The kitchen is well equipped with combination gas/electric cooker, fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave. The kitchen can be accessed by a separate entrance from the garden and there is a toilet leading off the kitchen.

At the top of the stone spiral staircase leading from the kitchen up to the living room is a stairgate.

On the second floor are two bedrooms and bathroom. One bedroom with a double bed and the other has twin beds.
