Pets and livestock live on our property - Two dogs, a couple of horses, a dozen chickens, a handful of cows and 250 sheep. This is why it is not suitable for your pets. Sorry for the inconvenience, but hopefully you can make friends with ours.


There is no wifi or TV, but there is phone signal and data coverage on most of the property


To secure your booking, we ask you to pay 20% of the total cost of your stay upfront and the remaining balance one month prior to arrival. Alongside this, like with many holiday places, you are expected to treat the property and homes with respect. This is why we operate a breakages deposit of £50, which we ask you to pay with the remaining balance one month prior to arrival. This will of course be refunded in full at the end of your stay (so long as there are no deductions to be made). We accept cheques addressed to ‘Roger Handley’ and sent to ‘Le Vignaud, St Michel Léparon, 24490, La Roche-Chalais, France’. Alternatively, you can pay by bank transfer. Please message us for bank account details.


No smoking indoors and respect the privacy and tranquility of others.

Please ensure your children are supervised when swimming in the lake.


The 20% holding fee at the time of booking is nonrefundable.

Once you have paid the balance in full one month before the beginning of your stay, you will only be refunded your £100 breakages deposit.
