Why Chris Morrow chose Oradour d'Aigre
Chris had wanted a house in France since he was fifteen He came out to the Charente for a weekend of wining and dining with an old friend and on the way looked at some houses. He arrived in Chille with a bit of a hangover but fell in love with this property the minute he saw it and made an offer on the spot.
What makes this house unique
The property comprises two separate houses which are completely private, have their own swimming pools, entrances and facilities so people who visit La Grange are not overlooked by the owners but do have the benefit of access to us if you need anything in emergency or need translation. This is a beautiful house in a very tranquil setting. It is really well equipped - and if you don't find absolutely everything you need then we can usually lend it to you from the other house.
