La Mirabelle is set in private grounds (7000m2) and has its own private terrace, not overlooked, with garden furniture and barbecue. It is located in the small hamlet of Phiolin, less than a kilometre from the village and its well-stocked mini-market. In the grounds, you'll find play areas for children and relaxation for adults, a boules pitch and a secure swimming pool to share with any occupants of the other 2 gîtes.
The surrounding countryside is peaceful, mainly vineyards and sunflower fields, with quiet roads ideal for cycling (bicycles are available).

    We had a wonderful holiday here! Valérie and her husband made us feel very welcome and did everything to make our stay a succes. We enjoyed the beautiful garden and our wonderful shady private garden. Our daughter April (7 years old) was completely in love with the swimming pool and played there with some children that were in the other gites. Also there were some very nice play options in the garden. Really wonderful! The house itself was very nice downstairs (nice and cool!) and there was a wonderful dolls house for April to play with. Very unique for a holiday home! Upstairs we were a little cramped with 5 people and there it did get warm. The fans did help! A consideration might be to put in some musquito screens, so you can leave the windows open without worries.
    Valérie and Fernando thank you for making our stay so wonderful!

    Bonjour Irene!
    We finally realise that we haven't taken the time to reply to you...
    We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family our Best Wishes for this New Year.
    Health and lots of travesl and escapes to all for 2023.
    Thank you very much for your nice message.
    We are taking good note of the mosquito nets which will be part of our plans to renovate our gites this year.
    Concerning the heat, unfortunately 2022 was one of the hottest summers ever in France and in Europe.
    We must wish all of us and our beautiful blue planet,nice summers in the future; adapting to climate change is also part of our renovation projects for 2023/2024 (insulating the roofs of our gîtes with materials that recycle freshness).
    Happy New Year 2023 to all the family.
    Warmest regards.
    Valerie and Fernando.

    Perfecte vakantie met kinderen. Zowel binnen als buiten is alles voorzien voor de kinderen. Veel gezelschapsspellen, puzzels, stiften, trampoline, glijbanen, schommels, voetbal, badminton,... En niet te vergeten een mooi onderhouden zwembad. Een extreem grote tuin met bomen voor koelte en overal rustplaatsen met stoelen, ligzetels, hangmatten. De eigenaars zijn altijd bereikbaar en zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Ook binnen is alle comfort aanwezig. Mooie rustige stadjes in de buurt, kayak, kust,...

    We hebben hier een geweldige week gehad met onze twee kinderen. Een ideale uitvalsbasis om de Charente te ontdekken. Overdag het gebied ontdekken en ‘s avonds genieten in eigen tuin van de rust en de sterren. Of uiteraard een middag besteden aan het keurig onderhouden zwembad.
    Aan alles is gedacht: van een opgemaakt babybedje en speelgoed tot aan een barbecue die al klaar staat om aan te steken. Ontvangst met brood, wijn en camembert, je voelt je meteen thuis. Fernando is een fijne host en biedt graag zijn hulp aan. Kortom: fantastische plek om van deze mooie Franse regio te genieten.
