Bois Bourdet is a family-run business. Resident all year round, we are available to help in whatever way we can to ensure that your stay at Bois Bourdet is both enjoyable and memorable. If, however, you are looking for total privacy, we will hand you your key on arrival and leave you to enjoy your break. We are conscious that this is your holiday, so we aim to provide exactly what you need.

Bois Bourdet has been selected for inclusion in the current edition of Alastair Sawday’s prestigious guide book, "Special Places to Stay - French Holiday Homes" and is described as "pretty as a picture and as stylish as can be... sheer relaxing delight!"

We have also been granted membership to Sawday’s new "Green & Ethical Collection" and awarded their Environment & Food stamp - an acknowledgement of our commitment to working hard to replace the environmental footprint of Bois Bourdet and for our proven passion for serving both local and organic food.

Constructed from golden Charentais stone, Bois Bourdet was originally a working farm with several barns. The farmhouse and two of its adjoining barns (La Bergerie and La Petite Maison) have now been tastefully restored and renovated to create luxurious, spacious holiday accommodation.

The renovation work has been carried out to a very high standard, incorporating many of the original stone walls and oak beams. All three properties have been completely modernised, yet their individual charm and character still remain.

All guests have full use of our heated swimming pool (11m x 5m). The pool has Roman steps at one end and a lovely terrace for sunbathing and relaxing. The shallow end is one metre deep and the bottom of the pool gently slopes down to two metres at the deep end. To comply with French safety regulations, the pool has an alarm and is fully fenced.

Explore and relax in our extensive grounds. Pick herbs from the herb garden, collect free range eggs from our chickens and enjoy complimentary organic produce grown in the garden. During the summer months, taste grapes from the vines which cover the front of the farmhouse. Pick cherries in June, gather apricots, pears and blackberries in late August or crack open walnuts in October.

If you are travelling with a baby or young toddler we have everything you need to help make your packing easy and your stay relaxing... travel cots, high chairs, baby baths, changing mats, sterilisers, toys, as well as a baby carrier and an all terrain buggy are available free of charge to use throughout your stay.
For older children we also have table tennis, badminton, cricket & a football net to enjoy, as well as numerous other bats & balls. Collecting eggs & feeding our chickens is also popular!
Weekly pizza making sessions for children of all ages are a real favourite at Bois Bourdet. They love to get messy mixing the dough and then creating their own tasty toppings!

It means Mum & Dad have a quiet couple of hours or so to relax and are then treated to a wonderful homemade AGA cooked Pizza for lunch!
