Hello from Chatelaine Chambre D'hote we are a rural bed and breakfast in a small village called Besse. A pretty part of the Charente near Ruffec. I have been running for one year and have been lucky enough to win a top award from reviews of 9.2.
My guests love the tranquil picturesque environment....especially having breakfast or refreshments outside in the courtyard area after a restful nights sleep.
Bring your walking boots - the local walking is fabulous. Also we are just 20 mins. from Nanteuil and Verteuil. Cognac Music Festival is just an hour away in early July. A wonderful event that has all the big names but still retains hassle free intimacy.
Interaction with guests
Tony will be happy to assist in french but is not fluent however we will do our best to answer your questions if you can be patient with us.....feel free to enjoy breakfast uninterrupted as much as suits.
Sorry but strictly no smoking.
Having travelled widely and lived in Australia and UK, I'm passionate about meeting people from all over the world, cultures and walks of life. I have so many interests from philosphy to art; camping to motorbiking; mentoring to voluntary work. I derive alot of pleasure from providing the highest possible satisfaction for my guests through high standards and home environment.
