La Voute Life is now on
La Voute - Our Labour of Love
Having discovered the ancient hamlet of “La Voute” in 2004, we were lucky enough to acquire our home with numerous other houses and outbuildings in various states of repair all set in the middle of nearly 60 Acres of grass and woodland in the beautiful Charente, close to the Dordogne border.
La Voute (The Vault) is named for its remarkable cellar underneath one of the houses, believed to date back between 600-900 years. So far we have traced the history back to 1841, when La Voute hameau, was the home of at least 12 people, with its own bakery, well, numerous houses and barns.
Over time, we have renovated and converted the buildings to create our perfect home here in the South West of France.
We now are pleased to invite you to enjoy the peace and tranquility, our hospitality, life style and wonderful home in one of our Yurts or in our well-appointed Gite.

Additionally we provide a romantic Horse & Carriage wedding service which delivers the finishing touch to the big day.
We look forward to sharing La Voute Life with you.
