About the owners

Penny Gorridge

We left behind very hectic London lives and moved here with our two children in 2005 and haven’t regretted it for a moment! We love welcoming families to our escape-from-it-all destination and watching them transform from tired, stressed out guests into rosy, bronzed, well rested families. Parents and children all get the holiday they so wanted.

Owner recommendations

  • Spend a day at La Rochefoucauld – a beautiful chateau town with lovely shops and restaurants. Dressing up at the chateau is a must!

  • Vallee des Singes is a fantastic park with over 300 monkeys living in the trees above you. Kids will love walking around and spotting swinging wildlife.

  • Angouleme is a beautiful university city only half an hour away. Set at the top of a hill and surrounded by ancient ramparts, it’s worth a visit.

  • Kids will love Accro Defi – tree climbing and obstacle courses for all ages – with a woodland café for an ice cream afterwards.

  • Lacs de Haut Charente offers beautiful lakes with beaches and water sports.
