the best the charente has to offer

nestled in the local countryside and surrounded by fields of sunflowers, vineyards and rolling hills, les hirondelles is located in the tiny hamlet of juif, just 4km from the market town of aigre and within easy reach of the best the area has to offer. 

an ideal location to relax and unwind.

the countryside

a taste of rural france

the charente enjoys the advantage of a sunny semi mediterranean climate with around 2400 sunshine hours each year with summer days generally in the mid to high 80's.

it is also is a magnet for all that france produces. home to cognac making, the local markets offer an abundance of fresh fish and seafood from the atlantic coast. wines on the doorstep from the regions of bordeaux and the loire. prime beef from the limousin. truffles and foie gras from the perigord. and to complement it all, seasonal fruit and vegetables from the organic farm just next door.

don't just take our word for it...

...taken from our visitors book. the spelling mistakes are all ours but the comments are yours and they make all our efforts here worthwhile.

Le gîte est magnifique! les extérieurs sont très biens entretenus notamment la piscine et ses abords que sont très agréables.  Merci encore pour les petites attentions  ce fut un séjour reposant dans un enviornnement superbe
