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.

Brendan: 14 yrs: You only realise how much you enjoyed it when it's time to leave... it stays with you for so long. Kate: 11 yrs: I loved the pool and the horses. Thunder storms as viewed from the master bedroom are really cool! La Jaudoniere is the perfect place for a family holiday. I'm sure there are lots of really fun and entertaining tourist type venues in the vicinity however we discovered that with the tropical heat we were more than happy to chill in teh pool by day and enjoy leisurly strolls and cycles in the evenings. The cottage was immaculate on arrival with lots of basics such as cleaning products, insect repellant and coals to gat the barbeque started. If I close my eyes I can revisit ...... and retrace my route to Benest for the daily supplies. Chatain is a rural location and it offers the type solitude that is not overly remote. It is a place to switch off from realities and the demands that accompany modern life. The cottage itself is over 350 years old and with it comes the charm and atmosphere synonymous with gites of this vintage. If you listen close enough you can almost hear the walls regale us with tales of the past! Yes please we will return. This lazy rural retreat has won a well deserved place in our hearts :) " I can't believe that I have spent the last two weeks with only my family and actually enjoyed it"..... A resoundingly positive indictment of La Jaudonniere from one of our teenage children.
