'A Little Information on Your Hosts'

Hello I am Jenny and my fiance is Paul, we first met briefly about 29 years ago, then reconnected through work in 2011.
We are both in our 40's and have both come to the conclusion 'that life is for living', so we made the wonderful move to France a few years ago.
Our backgrounds have given us some useful skills to run Le Couret, as I worked in Hotels for a number of years and Paul owned a couple of Cafe's in the UK.
We are both pretty handy behind the wheel too, having driven HGV trucks for a number of years just before our move to France.

Paul has family here in France, a brother, who has lived here for 15 years with his girlfriend and their young daughter,  and also his Parents who moved over a year or so ago about to be nearer their family.

So we welcome you to Le Couret and wish you a marvelous stay with us. We're sure you will love it as much as we do.

Meet the Team

We want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, whether you're taking a relaxing break or dashing round the Charente at breakneck speed trying to find that perfect little bolthole to escape the rat-race.



Resident 'Puddy Tat!'

Carrot is our extremely shy rescue cat, you may or may not see her out and about within the house or grounds, she's pretty shy though and likes to keep herself to herself.

Paul has a bit of a crazy personality, not quite as mad as his hair on this one though !!!
