What an idyllic spot from which to explore Lusignac, St Severin and Ribérac. Le Logis is set in a 17-acre park and St Emilion vineyards are only 40km away. Welcoming Cornelia will quickly make you at home; monsieur is a wine dealer. Their 1700s Chartreuse house has been beautifully restored with an eye to its former glory; four bedrooms and a suite lead off a long corridor (on the first floor) where coffee machine and comfy chairs wait, and light pours in. Outside, one of the loveliest pools we’ve seen: sloping down from a sandy ‘beach’, shared with the gîte. Ideal for groups, so gather your best friends for an enchanting escape.
