About Dave & Wendy Whiting
Dave & Wendy moved to France with their two dogs when Dave retired last year. It was a fairly snap decision but one we have certainly not regretted at all. We love the slower pace of life and enjoy pottering around our property, improving it as we go. We are very proud of how we have brought the farmhouse back to life and would very much like to share our beautiful location with you - you will feel like you are truly sitting on top of the world.
Dave & Wendy Whiting purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Dave & Wendy Whiting chose Édon
You really need to come to truly appreciate to beauty of our location - we feel we have not yet managed to take any photo that does it proper justice but all our visitors have been blown away with the breathtaking views and the magnificent sunsets you are able to enjoy due to our elevated situation. The night sky on a clear night is full of the brightest stars and the peace you will experience is verging on spiritual. But don't take our word for it - come and find out for yourselves.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are ideally placed to drop into the Dordogne with its beautiful countryside and picturesque villages or you can travel 30minutes up the road to the capital at Angouleme if you want to dip into the city environment for a day with its numerous bars, restaurants, shops and museums. Alternatively, drive across country to the vineyards around Cognac etc if you fancy a day wine or Pineau tasting. We have many famous tourist attractions within 30-40 minutes drive away, not to mention the fairytale style chateau down the road in Villebois Lavalette which you can also see from your cottage or pool.

A PERFECT STAY
A superb stay at Wendy & Dave's beautiful Gite near Edon on the Charente/Dordogne border. From the warm & friendly personal greeting to the wonderful and very generous welcome pack this is a gem of a place in a wonderful part of the world.
Very comfortable, impeccably clean with all the facilities you could need it's a great home away from home. A huge amount of work and thoughtfulness goes into what appears to come easy to Wendy & Dave but their efforts, kindness and hospitality were not lost on us. Thank you both so much.
A big hello to Archie & Eric too, a wonderful to the Le Haut Faye welcome.
A perfect stay in a gorgeous setting, we'll be back, thank you again.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay and we’d love to have you back sometime
Rolos first holiday.
We had a fabulous holiday at Haute Faye. The gite was very quirky. It had everything that we needed to cater for ourselves. The grounds and swimming pool are perfect and very well maintained.
Our hosts made us feel very comfortable and have a good knowledge of the area.
A perfect escape from real life.
Paradise in perigueux
Haute Lafayette was exactly as advertised, starting with the lovely welcome pack and very welcoming cold beer after a long drive. Dave and Wendy were lovely hosts made us very welcome and we feel we left as friends. The gite is in an idyllic elevated location with fantastic views when enjoying your , al fresco,eating. We enjoyed the lovely private swimming pool, cycling in the area though the final climb to the gite was a challenge ( not on an e-bike ) but well worth it. The immediate area is full of interesting villages, river trips, and local markets all with in easy driving distance.
All in all we had a fantastic relaxing break in a lovely area of France and would certainly return
Thank you for your lovely review and we would love to have you back sometime
We had a really relaxing holiday in the beautiful Haute Faye. We didn't want to leave! Thank you Wendy and Dave for letting us stay and for your first class hospitality.
Peace and quiet
My husband and I enjoyed a very relaxing week at this cottage. It suits two people perfectly and the swimming pool was perfect for the hot afternoons. Wendy and Dave were very hospitable and friendly and their two dogs were a delight.
Many thanks for the great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay
A home away from home.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage.
The cottage is very charming and has all the traditional features but it manages to incorporate all the mod-cons without spoiling the overall feel of the place.
Wendy and Dave are wonderful hosts and it is very handy to have help and local knowledge right on your doorstep
We fell in love with Archie and Eric (the dogs) and they were no bother to our own dog at all.
We would highly recommend this place and would definitely go back 😊
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We would love to see you back again sometime
