CHILLAC - SPACIOUS FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL.

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Chillac - Chez Grimaud

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, separate WC, sleeps up to 8

Chez Grimaud is a renovated detached farmhouse which formed part of a long established and still working crop farm and Cognac producer. Chez Grimaud is situated between Chalais and Barbezieux and in summer is surrounded by fields of vines and sunflowers which lie amidst the rolling woodlands of the Charente. The property is furnished adequately for holiday needs. There is a private outdoor pool with the house.

Further details: Chez Grimaud is served by air from Bordeaux airport 55m south, Bergerac and Poitiers, and by rail from Angouleme 30m north. It is well placed to visit the Dordogne valley and close to the country market towns of Chalais, Riberac and Perigueux. There are many countryside walks in the locality which allow you to explore the vineyards, and during the summer months enjoy tastings of the locally produced wines, Pineau and Cognacs. The Atlantic coastal resort of Royan lies 50m to the west, and for the more adventurous a three hour drive will take you to the Spanish border.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair accessible
  • pets considered
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Family Holiday

  • 4 out of 5
This is a lovely place to stay, very spacious with a great fenced off swimimng pool close to the house, and lots of space for the kids to run around. We comfortably accommodated two families.

It offers the essence of a French farmhouse in an idyllic spot.

For cycling, walks and access to Brossac with its man made beach / lake and restaurants the position is ideal.

Chalais is the nearest town and market day is on Monday morning

There are plenty of things to do and this is a great base. We have stayed here several times and look forward to going back.

This is a great place to stay. We have stayed here several times, it is spacious, got a great pool ( Fenced off ) and lots of space for the kids to run around. The property has all the essence of a French farmhouse in an idyllic spot with an amazing amount of room. We comfortably accommodated two families.

For cycling ,walks, access to Brossac with its man made beach, lake and restaurants, everythying is close by.

Chalais with its Monday market and much more can be done when based here.

We are looking forward to going back.

Chez Grimaud

  • 4 out of 5
This was a great place to stay , the lay out particularly suitable for 2 separate families (which we were)
in terms of sleeping arrangements.
It was indeed spacious with a huge cool sitting room and clean modern kitchen-dining area .The pool was excellent and well maintained. There are some lovely long views over the valley from the garden and apart from the odd bit of noisy farm machinery near by -generally peaceful.
I would definitely recommend this house for a holiday for a large family or 2 separate groups. Only reservation-not a lot to do for active children & teenagers apart from the pool so take some inflatables and games & sports equipment with you !

Chez Grimaud

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed at Chez Grimaud twice now, and love its beautiful location amongst the rolling hills covered in sunflowers and vines. Its a great spot for BBQs and relaxing by the pool, or for exploring the local countryside with its attractive towns and villages. Further afield you have Angouleme and the whole Cognac region, or some nice sandy beaches within 60-90 mins drive.

The house is well equipped for family use, with plenty of space for a comfortable stay. The decor is functional rather than lavish, but we have tended to live outdoors whenever possible, so this hasn't been an issue. It's worked well with kids, with plenty of space to go exploring in safety in the nearby fields and tracks, or ride around on bikes.

The location is fairly remote, so a car is essential, but there's a baker a few minutes drive down the road, and supermarkets in the closest main towns.

Excellent property!

  • 5 out of 5
We have rented various properties in France in the past 14 years and this was definitely one of the best for value for money. The house was huge and would easily accommodate two families. The furniture was comfortable and clean. The pool was superb and maintained on a regular basis by an unobtrusive caretaker. Henry (the owner) couldn't have been more helpful, even booking a table for us at the local chateaux before we arrived! There are plenty of things to do with children in the surrounding area (Aqualand near Bordeaux is a must!!) If you want a property where the owners pop in only if you need them, plenty of room, a deep, spacious pool, a large garden for the children and value for money (and you don't mind the odd cobweb, anyone would think this is rural France!) this property ticks all of those boxes and we will definitely be returning in the future.

Fabulous

  • 5 out of 5
Lovely old farmhouse in tranquil rural area. Surrounded by fields of sunflowers so very pretty. We enjoyed river kayaking, local markets and pony treking for the kids. Nice big kitchen with dishwasher, microwave etc. Kids swam in the pool every day.
