La Jaudonnière is a detached, self catering cottage with a private pool set in a small hamlet between the villages of Chatain and Benest, on the border of the Charente and Vienne departments.

The highlight of this property is its beautiful south-facing gardens that overlook the open countryside, with sunshine flooding the space from morning to dusk. Wildlife is abundant, birds of prey and woodpeckers are regular visitors and the occasional red squirrel can be seen. Deer can also be spotted in close proximity.

With the long hot sunny days and south-facing garden, the private pool is a real asset and very enjoyable. The pool area itself, has ample decking for sunbathing and outside dining. There is a large teak dining table, seating six on the pool deck with umbrella for shade and further dining tables in other areas of the garden giving dining options for sunny and shady areas. There are several luxury loungers with long cushions and four swinging loungers, along with several umbrellas for you to enjoy. At the poolside there is a new brick barbecue, so dining alfresco can be enjoyed during the daytime or equally in the evening. Another BBQ can be found in more a shaded area of the garden. Or if you fancy a different view, you could dine under the enormous walnut tree at the other end of the garden. The enormous outside space is all secluded, peaceful and a slice of french countryside heaven.

Inside, this charming 16th Century cottage comprises of two bedrooms and has retained many of its original features; including heavy oak beams, stone and oak flooring and an original open fireplace.

The property benefits from central heating and there is a modern, well equipped kitchen with new digital boiler providing instant hot water at any time. The kitchen includes a cooker, hob, large fridge with freezer, dishwasher, washing machine microwave and toaster. There is also a small breakfast table.

The comfortable sitting room has a cosy sofa and a large original open fire-place for those cosy evenings, leading into a large characterful dining room with an antique table and dresser, plus a wooden staircase leading upstairs.

Upstairs there is one large, well-furnished master bedroom with a queen size bed and door leading to the stone staircase taking you down to the garden. The second bedroom has three comfortable single beds for children. The bathroom is a good size and has a large deep bath with a shower - the ceiling is low at this point. The bathroom is situated between the two bedrooms and the landing has a full length build in wardrobe.

Fantastic stay in a great rural location

By Louis Beaumont on 12-Sep-2022

We loved everything about this property. It was in a beautiful, rural location where you hear nothing but the amazing wildlife. The pool was fantastic, great size and surrounded by lovely decking, well equipped with comfy sun beds, chairs and dining table for meals. Gardens are huge and well kept. Owners were great at communicating with us and pictures fully matched the reality. Inside is well equipped with everything you need with lovely original features. Overall, this was a brilliant holiday, everything we could have asked for. We will be back!
