John & Penny have owned the La Betoulle estate since March 2004
– this year will be their 13th season running the 2 self catering gites which were started by the previous owners & the luxury B&B that they have created in 4 rooms in their house. The property has a high percentage of regular guests – 2014 saw 17 families returning to the 2 gites between the months of May & October & an equally high number of returning guests of all nationalities in the B&B.
We have spent our lives travelling the world – working in the Middle East & Africa as well as throughout the UK Home Counties & Europe. We have owned property in France since 1989, so know the country (& its food & wine..)well – we love living in the unspoilt Charente region with its quiet peaceful roads, rolling hills & farmland & especially the wide choice of restaurants in the region of France – something for everyone….
The summers are long & hot, the winters can be mild… the coast is not too far for a day trip & the towns of Limoges & Angouleme are within an easy drive + the beautiful city of Bordeaux is an easy day trip. We love visiting Futuroscope as we have a passion for anything cinematic or to do with the moving image. There is a huge DVD library @ La Betoulle – guests are welcome to borrow films for no charge. Books play a large part in our lives & guests can always find something to read. In the past we played a lot of tennis & occasion golf, but no longer have the time for playing either frequently, despite a tennis court on the estate. John has an Medical, Computer & Telcomms engineering background & Penny has worked as a radiographer for over 30yrs – mainly in Neurology – CT & MRI scanning. When we are not tending to the needs of our guests we love to travel – currently we enjoy exploring Italy, South Africa & the US, but hope to re-visit India soon. We have a passion for food – both cooking & eating, & love to discover new flavours & ideas , which we hope we are able to transmit into our diverse breakfast menu. We make our own bread (when time allows) & Penny loves to bake afternoon ‘treats’ for her guests at weekends. Breakfast is included in the price for B&B guests, but our self-catering guests are welcome to join in @ the buffet breakfast for a supplementary charge. We offer a restaurant reservation & menu translation service & are happy to book any outside activities for our guests.Most of all we love to give our guests a relaxing holiday & see how they unwind during the course of a stay with us.
