Why Ann chose Chalais
After visiting many areas we decided that the Charente was visually appealing and offered the lifestyle we desired.
What makes this cottage unique
The house setting is tranquil yet close enough for all the necessities of life. The stone walls give it real charm and authenticity. There is even a cornerstone that tells us the house was built in 1833, around Napoleons time!
