"Just got back from staying in this farmhouse for a week, its situated in a lovely countryside location whilst also having the fun of a private pool! The welcome pack was a nice touch:) All of the house was very clean and had all the amenities you could need! You had the luxury of a quiet location whilst being close to lovely little towns like chef-boutonne, civray, celles-sur-belle all of which have markets and beautiful churches (we loved going to the abbey in celles-sur belle). We also visited a couple of the larger cities of Niort and Angouleme both of which had lots of shops,stalls and historic sites to visit making great days out! And we still didn't get to visit everywhere we wanted! Great host and great holiday would definitely go again!"

"We found the accommodation had everything we needed for 2 families. The welcome pack was very much needed after a 14 hour + drive. The location was peaceful and the grounds were spacious that we were not on top of each other. Hope you enjoy your holiday as much as we did if you choose to book it."

"
Location, so peaceful. The farmhouse is huge , loads of space particularly if you have children or two families sharing. We were thankful for the pool as weather was beautiful and definately needed to cool off at times... The pool is also very secure , gated and alarmed. The house was spotless with everything we required. Communication with Louise the owner was great from booking right up until we arrived, thankyou and thankyou for the welcome pack. Great holiday. We will see you soon. The Irvines"

"The title says it all really. We arrived after a long drive (would recommend splitting the drive if that's your plan from the UK) to find the most wonderful farmhouse situated at the end of a pretty fantastic driveway. Getting into the farmhouse, our 3 sons, aged 9, 6 and 3 were amazed at the stone floored living room, expansive kitchen/dining room and the squealing when they discovered their bedroom (they do actually have beds and bedrooms at home) was deafening. This farmhouse is HUGE. 4 well sized rooms with beds a plenty and 3 bathrooms with separate toilets are welcomed with a party of 8. This leads me to the outside........ In fairness to Ruth, she has detailed the size of the pool but it is massive in reality. 36 x 12 feet I do believe and everyone in our party spent most of their time in the pool. That, along with the large grassed area (maintained by the friendly gardener) and the outside seating, sunbathing and dining area make this a farmhouse that my family and I will now use for many years to come. Shops are close by and there are cafe's and restaurants close by. We were lucky enough to meet Ruth when she came to clean the pool and I must say she's as lovely in person as she appeared on the phone. All in all it's a no brainier for us and we will be booking for next year later this week.Thank you Ruth for making this a wonderful family holiday."

"We have had another amazing holiday in Hanc. The communication with the owner was excellent from booking right through to arrival and indeed the end of our stay. She was very friendly and helpful. The Farmhouse itself was impeccably clean and very inviting. The pool really has the wow factor and was very much enjoyed by our whole family from first thing in the morning right through to darkness some days thanks to the fabulous pool lighting and the patio area lighting. Although there are neighbours to the property we had complete privacy and didn't hear anything from anyone else. We were able to play our music without worry of upsetting any locals. The local towns are very friendly and we found everything that we needed. We also found lots locally to do with the children including canoeing, fishing and parcour tree climbing with zip wires. I will most certainly be looking to go again in the future and would highly recommend to anyone looking for the luxury of a large private pool, large well kept garden and beautiful sunshine. A very enjoyable and relaxing holiday."

"Wow! Holiday blues are in full swing! My husband, who does not generally enjoy holidays even admitted he wasn't ready to leave this beautiful house! We arrived with 2 young children, 4 & 6, in the middle of the night direct from 5 days at DisneyLand. We explored the gite on arrival and it was beautiful. When we awoke in the morning, with the sun shining my first question to my husband was, "Is it as beautiful in the light as it was last night?"......... better!!! ...was his reply! And he wasn't wrong! The gite is an old building with all the character that you would expect. The bedrooms are comfortable and so many to choose from! The kids slept in the biggest room and played musical beds! We opted for the downstairs double with doors out to the garden. The garden and pool was a perfect space. The fence around the pool was an absolute godsend ensuring you could relax knowing the children couldn't access the pool without supervision! Even so, my 4 year old DID slip into the pool from the side, while we were supervising him, so we were lucky to pull him out in seconds! You just cannot be too careful!! Overall, an amazing house, perfect for larger groups! We were 3 adults, 2 children. But already planning who to bring next time! The house would work perfectly for 3 families with kids all sharing the large room! Ruth was a great host ensuring the pool was cleaned during our stay! Just perfect! Thank you for sharing your lovely house and we can't wait to come back!!"

"The farmhouse was really lovely, the photos did not so it justice. If you are looking for a total relaxing holiday...away from it all and have wonderful space and the beautiful swimming pool and surroundings to relax in this is for you. There was six of us and then another two visitors but could have had more as it so roomy. Every mod con is available. There isn't anything much in Hanc itself but chef boutonne has the intermache and a u save etc for all your food and more importantly drinks, we will definitely be back."

"Our group of 4 adults and 3 children were lucky enough to stay in this picturesque property for a week in July 2014. The house, gardens and surroundings far exceeded our expectations! We loved the house will off of it's features and nooks (a hide and seekers haven) and we had to bribe the children on a daily basis to visit local towns and chateaus! The pool was a winner all round, safe and beautifully maintained. The outside space really works for families with shaded eating option and all next to the kitchen. Ruth, the proprietor was the perfect host. We had fresh flowers in every room and wine waiting. A lovely, relaxed atmosphere with plenty of amenities. We were planning on getting out and about every day but only managed 2 out of the 7 days as we enjoyed the gite and gardens so much. We are planning our next summer holiday and all agree it will be a very difficult "home from home" to beat. In fact, we may re-book!"
