Description

A centre for everywhere in the middle of nowhere.

Hidden between the mill stream and the forest, Chez Meunier offers complete privacy and peace. While you enjoy the sun-trap private pool you will hear nothing but the birds in the surrounding woods . Also brilliant for star-gazing after a hard day doing nothing! The Charente skies are some of the least light polluted in the world.
The local countryside presents a mosaic of colour, with sunflowers, linseed, maize and wheat and the occasional family group of cattle grazing happily in the fields. But the area is best known for its vineyards, supplying grapes for Cognac and our local delicacy Pineau.
THE HOUSE:
The low, unassuming façade belies the huge amount of space contained within. The entrance, beside the pool, leads into a large bright hallway and the ground floor. Overlooking the pool is the bright, airy and fully equipped kitchen/diner. The giant oak table will seat 10 with room to spare and the kitchen has all the appliances and utensils you will want. Across the hall is the sitting room which again looks out onto the pool and beyond into the woods. With duel aspect windows this room is delightfully bright and restful, being comfortably furnished with armchairs and settees, TV and DVD and a supply of books and games. At the end of the hall is a toilet with hand basin. Beside this cloakroom is a large area for any outdoor wear, boots and coats, ideal for hikers and explorers!
MASTER SUITE:
The wrought iron staircase leads up to a large hall and into the stunning Master Bedroom, which has a super king-size sleigh bed under a beautiful vaulted ceiling showing all the ancient oak beams. There is a full-sized wardrobe and large chest of drawers, plenty of space to store all your bits and pieces. The large en-suite wet room is fully tiled and fitted with a skylight to let in the sunshine. This bedroom has views to the east across the mill stream, Le Ne, and the rising sun.
DOUBLE BEDROOM and TWIN BEDROOM:
On this floor there are a further two bedrooms, a double and a twin. Both have ample storage and idyllic views over the forest. These 2 rooms are directly opposite the large family bathroom featuring a bath as well as shower, for those folk who enjoy a soak!. Both bathrooms are newly fitted with the best quality and style. Fully tiled with beautiful vanity units to contain all your bathing paraphernalia.
All linen and towels are supplied and renewed each week.
OUTSIDE
The 10 x 5 metre pool is surrounded by a European Standard Security barrier which has child-proof locks. The outside dining area has large table on the paved patio under a canopy and is next to the stone barbecue. The view from here is just the fields and forest. Next to the pool area and patio, the small graveled garden has figs and walnuts aplenty in season and also the pigeonnier is here, which houses all the bikes for your use.
THE AREA
The Charente region has many attractive towns and villages and a sightseeing holiday could include: COGNAC and a visit to one of its world famous Brandy Houses – watch the process and sample the product! ANGOULEME, with its beautiful Cathedral in the heart of the Old City, where a wander through the maze of narrow streets offers a delightful range of pavement bars and gourmet restaurants to suit everyone. Angouleme is also the capital of the cartoon industry and a visit to the paper making museum on the banks of the beautiful Charente is a must. You can take a boat ride from Angouleme along the Charente river. Also visit the chocolate factory where the kids (big and small ;-) can have a go at making chocolate to take home.
The famous and fascinating CHAPELLE DU TEMPLIERS at Cressac – is just a healthy bike ride away from the house. Soak up the aura of its frescoes before pedaling on to Blanzac for a coffee.
See the web site for the chapelle here- https://www.lacharente.com/fiche/detail/178059
JARNAC, which straddles the lovely Charente river. is another beautiful small town, here you can take a boat trip on the river to see kingfishers. JONZAC is in the centre of the Wine Trails and visiting the local Cognac and Pineau producers all around us is great fun, they are always very keen to show guests around and let you sample the produce. Our closest town, BARBEZIEUX is such a pretty, typically French, small town with its Plane trees and boulevards. This is where you will find a large selection of shops and supermarkets and also the twice weekly street market. We go to Barbezieux once or twice a week for a morning coffee and pain au chocolat!
For the more adventurous:
Golf enthusiasts can play the championship course at Cognac, beautifully designed around a Chateau and its vineyard. There is also an 18 hole course in Angouleme and a pleasant 9 hole course at nearby Pillac. The Charente river offers numerous opportunities to hire canoes and kayaks, for an hour or for a day. AUBETERRE-SUR -DRONNE, with its underground cathedral and voted one of the most beautiful villages in France, has a range of options and is 25 minutes away. For the ramblers and cyclists, the quiet lanes and rolling hills provide a perfect setting. There are waymarked paths and bridleways, or you can explore the valleys of the Ne and the Boeme yourselves with local maps. Other activities and experiences: In Angouleme, the annual Cartoon Strip Festival ( Bande Desinee ) and the Rampart Rally ( vintage cars from all over Europe racing round the City streets ) in September. In Cognac, the annual Blues and Jazz Festival in early July attracts internationally renowned artists every year. In Barbezieux, the Music Week is early July, where local and regional musicians play a variety of styles in the bars and around the streets. There are also organised live concerts and exhibitions throughout the summer. There is always a 'Sortir' magazine supplied with ALL the events for the month listed. Throughout the region, almost every village offers weekly markets, fares and occasional exhibitions. In the summer, the “Farmers Markets” are a fantastic way to sample local produce in the villages, where you usually have the chance to buy the meat, cook it there and then on the BBQ and wash it down with some local wine!

Delightful holiday home

By Nigel Kay on 12-Sep-2020

Chez Meunier is a delightful holiday home tucked away in rolling French countryside and surrounded by woods and vineyards. English owners Stevie and Harry have painstakingly restored this historic old mill to create a comfortable and spacious home from home. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, one of which has a large walk in wet room. On the ground floor there’s a well-equipped kitchen and sitting room. There’s a large pool terrace with sunbeds, and a barbeque and timber-framed gazebo for eating outdoors. The nearest small supermarket is just 4km away and there’s much to explore within an hour’s drive. Stevie and Harry are kind and considerate hosts who made us very welcome indeed.

Lovely secluded house situated in gorgeous French countryside

By Sarah C on 27-Jul-2019

The owners, Stevie and Harry, are wonderfully kind, welcoming and helpful hosts, who went above and beyond for us. A massive thank you! The house has a really welcoming feel and is both spacious and very well appointed. The kitchen is large and well equipped, with a wonderfully big kitchen table for everyone to sit around. The sitting room is spacious and has ample seating. The master bedroom is gorgeous and from the unusual ceiling hangs a beautiful chandelier. The en suite shower room was perfect. The other two bedrooms are both spacious and share a very well appointed family bathroom. The swimming pool is lovely and a perfect size. We had a wonderful week's stay and with lots of evening BBQ's, lazing on the loungers around the pool or sitting in the shade at the table under the pergola. Thank you so much to you both for a lovely and much needed holiday! 08/15/2019 at 4:02 PM
