About Cheryl and Ben Johns
We purchased our property in 2013, and moved to France permanently in 2016, fully embracing the French way of life. We live here with our two sons, two dogs, four cats, chickens and a duck! The house has been derelict for 30 years and has had a full restoration top to bottom. We live in the main house year-round. The house has an independent annexe which we have rented as a Bed and Breakfast suite since 2018 with fantastic reviews and returning guests. We love this area of France and all it has to offer. We are ideally located not far from many towns and villages, and an excellent base to explore the Périgord Vert. We enjoy exploring the area on and off-road, and especially eating out trying the fantastic local food. We are often at the house but are discreet and leave our guests to their own privacy. We are, of course, available to guests if needed during their stay.

Why Cheryl and Ben Johns chose Maisonnais-sur-Tardoire
We love this area of France and have spent a lot of time and effort renovating the main property after it had been empty for 30 years. The Annexe has been sympathetically and tastefully restored and modernised by us to offer a welcoming stop for guests. The Annexe is situated rurally but nothing is too far away, its an ideal spot for exploring the area, or to access the nearby town and villages with ease. Although a 'B&B' The Annexe is unique in that you have a full living space -two bedrooms, bathroom and lounge- with a private entrance allowing our guests to come and go as they please and not be reliant on their hosts! There's no kitchen but we offer an optional continental breakfast (for a small extra fee) which can be requested as required during your stay. The Annexe has been designed to be a welcoming and cosy space whatever the weather, whatever the season and as such we are open year-round, with no set check in or check-out days. We do, however, have a maximum booking duration of three nights. If you are looking for self catering accommodation or for a longer stay, you can also find our other property 'La Charnière Chadalais' on HomeAway

The Annexe is in Chadalais, part of the commune of Maisonnais-sur-Tardoire in the Parc Natural Regional Perigord.
Being in the Perigord Vert, we are surrounded by lush green pasture and woodland. Whilst situated rurally, we are on the border of the Haute Vienne (87), Charente (16) and Dordogne (24) and as such have excellent accessibility to many small villages and larger towns for their amenities.
We are a short drive from the village of Saint Mathieu with its supermarket, boulangerie, cafe, post office, tabac and bars. The larger towns of Rochechouart, La Rochefoucauld, Piegut-Pluviers, Nontron, Montbron, Saint Junien and Confolens- and many smaller villages- are all within a scenic 30-minute drive and the cities of Limoges and Angouleme are both around 40 minutes away.
Chadalais is a delightful little hamlet and, being surrounded by many tracks and quiet country lanes is a great place to go for a short evening walk or to explore the Limousin countryside. We are well placed for exploring the area and that also makes the location ideal for short stays for those househunting, visiting for business, passing through or visiting the area for family events. We are also just a short drive from Domaine des Étangs, Château Rocher and Golf International de la Prèze making us a perfect overnight option for those attending weddings and events at either venue.
Our nearest airport is Limoges which flies to many UK destinations and is around 45 minutes away. We are also easy to access by car from the UK- by ferry from Calais (7 hours), Caen (5 hours) and Le Havre (6 hours), or the Eurotunnel (7 hours).
