STUNNING 18TH CENTURY CHARENTAIS LOGIS WITH SWIMMIMG POOL NEAR COGNAC

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Cognac

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 toilets, sleeps 10

The logis is situated amongst the vineyards of the Grande Champagne region, famed for having the best Cognac vines in France. It is set in a beautiful rural location, within minutes of the capital of the Grande Champagne, Segonzac where there is a bakery, supermarket, tabac, pharmacy and post office. The house lies within 2 acres of enclosed grounds, which include an orchard, courtyard, pigeonnier, and 10 x 5m swimming pool. The logis has large light rooms and has recently been refurbished to a high standard.

Location: This 18th Century charentais logis, has large light rooms. It sits amongst the vineyards of the Grande Champagne region, famed for being the most impressive region of the Charente. The nearby town of Segonzac, just a 5 minute drive away has a supermarket, pharmacy, bakery etc. And the nearby village of Juillac le Coq, a 2 minute drive away has a bakery, post office and a petrol station. The 2 acre garden is completely enclosed by thick bordering fir trees and has open spaces for Badminton etc. The swimming pool and garden are south facing.

The Surrounding Area: The pretty town of Jarnac, birthplace and final resting place of Francois Mitterand lies against the backdrop of the River Charente. Just a 10 minute drive away it also provides enjoyment for fishing and boating enthusiasts. Jarnac is also home of the famous brandy house ‘Courvoisier’.

The lovely town of Cognac, home of the famous brandy houses ‘Camus’, ‘Hennessy’, ‘Martell’, ‘Otard’, and ‘Remy Martin’, is about a 15 minute drive away, where most of the distilleries offer free tastings and tours. With its pretty streets, markets and street cafes the beginning of September sees the 'Coup de Chauffe' festival, where the emotion teasers, smooth talkers, barkers and street knockers wander in the ‘eaux-de-vie’ city streets, and the beginning of August sees the streets filled with Blues, Soul Music and Jazz resonating from the jamming sessions between amateur and professional musicians.

Additional Attractions: The fantastic ‘Puy du Fou’ show retells local history in a spectacle of fireworks, fountains, lasers and stunt riding against the flaming background of a ruined fortress. There are shows every weekend from June to September, and is well worth the hour and a half drive.

Futuroscope is about an hour away, and shows cutting-edge modern film techniques, with a screen the size of a 7 story building and a dome shaped cinema which gives an illusion of solidity and an underfloor screen that makes you feel like you are airborne. It also has a giant 3D cinema.

The beautiful wild ‘cote savage’ is under an hour away where there is miles of long, golden unspoilt beaches.

Or visit the ‘Marais Poitevin’, known as the Venice of France.

The nearest golf course is in Cognac, which is about 15 minutes away.

A fantastic property in a wonderful location. Peaceful and isolated enough to feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere, yet an ideally located base for visiting all of the attractions in the surrounding areas and within easy reach of all the amenities.
The property, especially the kitchen was so well equipped, that as a group of self-proclaimed foodies, there wasn't one gadget we missed from our own kitchens!!
Toddlers are well catered for too.
For four couples (one with kids) ranging between the ages of 20 and 60 we felt that the house was large enough not to feel as though we weren't in each others pockets, yet cosy enough to enjoy some quality time together.
The grounds are beautiful, as is the surrounding area. The pool is safely yet tastefully sectioned off so that small children can play safely in the garden and the icing on the cake was the selection of herbs and fruit trees we discovered (the figs are delicious!!). Each window has a picturesque view, it was difficult to pick which bedroom I wanted.
The owners were great to deal with, I would say they went above and beyond the call of duty. Their communications were very prompt and instructions and directions were clear and concise. There was a handbook onsite which even contained a list of local eateries with contact details and travel times!! Our only disappointment was that they couldn't control the weather :)
Despite the occasional light showers we throughly enjoyed ourselves.
I would highly recommend this property to friends, relatives and strangers, in fact I would break my own travel rule and visit again.

Perfect location, beautiful house, amazing pool!

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a lovely stay at Le Logis and wish we were still there!

The house is in a perfect rural location, surrounded by vineyards. It is a short drive to the nearby town with bakery, pharmacy and restaurant. There is also a large hypermarket close by. La Rochelle and Royan easily accessible also.

The house is beautifully renovated and furnished and is clean and spacious. It was perfect for us - 3 couples, 4 kids. The kids loved the space - inside the house, in the large gardens and the lovely pool with sun loungers and shade nearby. Great outdoor eating area also.

We would love to return and would recommend this to anyone, particularly those with kids in need of lots of open space!

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
A big thank you for allowing us to stay in such a beautiful property. The whole holiday was relaxing and with so much space for the 9 of us. Nearby Jarnac was worth a visit and the seaside resort of Rogan was equally lovely. We would definitely return again.

The village of Juillac le Coq is a 2 minute drive away and has a bakery, post office and petrol station. The small town of Segonzac, capital of the Grande Champage region is a further 5 minutes and has all the other local amenities that you would need. The famous town of Cognac with it's famous distilleries is a 15 minute drive as is Jarnac, birthplace of Francois Mitterand. Situated about an hours drive from Bordeaux airport and just over an hour from Poitiers and La Rochelle airports, both served by Ryanair the property will be even more easily accessible from 1st April 2008 when Ryanair start flying to Angouleme. Angouleme is just 30 minutes away and also has a train station as does Jarnac at 15 minutes. Car hire is available at the Airports through Avis, Hertz, Rentacar etc.
