Lovely long drive off of the road with fruit trees on the way down. We went onto the terrace which had a generous sized table and enough chairs for us all to sit around. We were blessed with lovely weather while we were there and we went on to enjoy the terrace from first thing in the morning to last thing at night.
We entered the property through the kitchen which for us was the hub of the home, with plenty of utensils and china and I really felt it's home from home. We used to sit around the kitchen island chatting while I cooked. We did use the dining room a couple of times, however we preferred to eat either around the kitchen island or outside.
To the right of the kitchen was my favourite room, the sitting room. We honestly didn't use it very much but it was very comfortable and made me feel very french every time I looked at it, beautiful.
The house is in a great location to go exploring which we took full advantage of, turn right out of the drive to Cognac approximately 8km away and turn left into Jarnac, a similar distance away which was really convenient and easy to top up our supplies of food and wine! however it was difficult to get motivated to leave such a peaceful and relaxing location when you have a fabulous pool with plenty of sun loungers for everyone.
Upstairs were three simply but stylishly furnished double bedrooms. We had the bedroom with on -suite, whilst the children used the middle bedroom and family bathroom, and our friends had the end bedroom and used the downstairs shower room. With three toilets in the property there was never a queue in the morning - anyone with a family will understand that comment!
Once the children had gone to bed we spent many an evening on the terrace with a glass of marvellous French wine chattering until the early hours.
In summary, with the golf course less than a mile up the road, this really meant there was something for everyone in our party ! Our holiday was peaceful, relaxing and a great opportunity to spend some quality time together, recharge our batteries and explore France.
We will definitely be back!
