This beautiful spacious two storey Charentaise stone Farmhouse and outbuildings date from about 1840. Located within easy access of Cognac and Angouleme. Sympathetically restored the house offers 4 double bedrooms, one has a mezzanine with double bed and sofa bed below and so can sleep 10, two reception rooms and a large fitted open kitchen. Outside around the enclosed courtyard are a games barn, heated swimming pool with large sunbed area, a walled garden and a small wood running down to a stream. The house is equipped for babies and small children, if required.
The house is situated in a small hamlet with four other houses and the road ends 50 metres past the house. The local countryside is ideal for walking and cycling, the roads are quiet and the gentle rolling hills and valleys of this part of the Charente are very welcoming. It is just a ten minute walk through the vines to the village of 700 people, where you can enjoy a coffee or drink. The village has a chateau, baker, butcher, doctor, pharmacy and general store/bar.
The city of Angouleme, the capital of the Charente, is stunning with two large daily markets and is only 40 minutes away. There is a rock festival every year, as well as vintage car races around the ramparts and hot air balloons spectacular. In the opposite direction, the house is within easy reach of huge beaches at Royan and the Ile de Re and the grand city of Bordeaux. Also close by is Cognac, the centre of the brandy industry. There are brandy making tours well worth a visit and river trips and kayaks available here and at Jarnac. For more entertainment there are roof top bars at Cognac and at the Hotel spa 20 minutes away.
If you just want to relax and soak up the sun , you can stay by the pool and the fruit trees.
