It's difficult to know where to begin. The gite is so lovely, beautiful inside, everything is wonderful and everything works! The rooms are spacious, clean, light and airy. The weather has been absolutely brilliant. We have enjoyed staying here immensely. It wa only going to be for a week, however, 4 weeks later we are still here!!!!! To find somewhere to stay that's lovely is hard enough but, to find a dream gite with dream weather and dream owners is the icing on the cake. You have gone out of your way on numerous occasions to help us when we needed it, nothing was any trouble in your efforts to help us and boy, have we needed help! Julie, with your wonderful knowledge and kind heartedness, you would be very hard pressed to be beaten by any host anywhere!! Guy is just amazing. His work is excellent and nothing is too much trouble, you are the ideal people for people (like us) to book and enjoy with. We are leaving tomorrow to live in our house in Ambernac, and if it hadn't been for you all we don't know if we could have made it this far. You are truly a fantastic couple/family and we are absolutely blessed that we found you, because had we not, we would have seriously struggled.

My second visit to stay at Tranquille Vienne and again a very enjoyable one.
Groghan, UK Sep/Oct 2011
Had an absolutely fantastic relaxing break! Found everyone in the area really friendly. Home grown veg, best we've tasted, might try ourselves at home! Great night had in the Confolen gite; french workmen know how to have a good time! Troy is as mad as a hatter! A bientot!

Thank you so much to Julie, Guy, Jade and not forgetting Troy. We have had a fantastic week, the weather was fab, hospitality was fab, the shop is ace - I didn't need to go far for my wine/beer! This kids loved the chickens, Troy, trampoline and the pool. This gite is just perfect, everything you could ever need. I don't think we needed anything apart from tomatoes (how many did the kids go through? ha ha ha) Thank you again for a fantasic week.

Thank you to Guy, Julie, Jade and even Troy for a very enjoyable stay here in the 'Chabanais' gite. We have thoroughly enjoyed it. They are all great company despite Guy taking the mick out of our somerset accent! We strongly recommend the zoo at Royal, despite it being 2 hrs away. We also went to 'Puy Du Fou' although it's 3 hrs away it's well worth the journey! We were very lucky with the glorious weather and spent most evenings in the pool. Thank you again for your help :) We will return!

This is the nicest part of North Yorkshire we've ever stayed in! Thank you for the legumes, the good times and the all day hangover! Thank you for an awesome 2 weeks! Guy, Julie & Jade - you guys are so lovely and we're gonna miss you lots! Thanks for letting me steal your wifi so I could talk to Zac Efron. We've had the best time here :) Thanks for a great summer! everyone was really nice and Jade I will beat you at table tennis one day! I hope we weren't too noisy. I will keep in touch on Facebook! What a fantastic 2 weeks we've had. Thank you for your wonderfully charming gite and the supply of delicious veg - british veg is tasteless! Great pool and relaxing gardens. Teens loved the wifi and table tennis. Thank you for hosting the games and music nights and for the fun and laughter we all shared. This area of France is so beautiful and the lack of frenzied activity that is a constant in Britain all conspired to provide a wonderfully relaxing holiday. Good luck with your business Guy, Julie & Jade (& Troy!) you deserve all your success. Thank you for the first family holiday we have been on in 8 years without being thrown out for singing at half one in the morning!

Gite acceuillant et sympathique comme les proprietaires. Semaine très agrèable, comme la region

We've just spent a brilliant two weeks here in the Rochechouart gite. Everything that has been said in previous comments, which sounded too good to be true, wasn't - it's exactly as described and Julie & Guy have been brilliant hosts. There when you need them and scarcly visible when you don't and full of helpful, practical advice about places, things to do, eateries, etc. We loved the lakes, the velorail, Angouleme, the restaurant in Chirac, La Croix Blanche in Chabanais, walks and all of it really.
The Tasker Family, Daventry UK August 2011
Hello, we liked to play with Troy and also the trampoline and swimming pool. We liked also to do hide and seek with Jade and the other children. Unfortunately the weather wasn't so good that we liked to go in the swimming pool every day. We went to the velo-train and canoeing, that was very nice! We didn't like Limoges so much, but Angoulem was quite alright.
Martin family, Holland July/August 2011
Even though we had a few rainy days in our second week, we enjoyed our stay in this peaceful, gentle and delicious countryside. Lukas loved playing with Troy, discovering beetles, the slide, the new swing, Julies garden and the chickens. He exercised a lot playing football and going up and down the stairs. The word he spoke out every morning first was 'Tra' and we suppose it's 'Troy'!:) The lakes, Angouleme, Limoges, Oradour sur Glane, St Yrieix la perche and the castles of Rochechouart and La Rochfoucauld are worth a visit! We will have to come back to discover the rest of this wonderful region. Now we have a good address to stay!
Aalmans , Belgium July 2011
We've had a great week and may have found our own french retreat. We'll keep in touch. Thanks for all your help.
Above and beyond what you would expect from a gite! Excellent gite, excellent service & company. Superb local advice and beautiful weather. We would recommend the gites to anyone and when we move here later in the year, we will be sure to send friends here. Angelica particularly enjoyed spending time with Jade, Troy and the chickens. Well done Guy & Julie, the gites are truly tranquil.
