About the property

170sqm villa with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

Welcome to the picturesque commune of Dompierre-sur-Charente and this stunning villa, nestled in a private, 8500m² garden that’s like a semi-forested park, right in the middle of lush vineyards. The Charente-Maritime department is known for its beautiful coastline, nature reserves and medieval villages, and you’ll be in the perfect spot to explore it all.

The house is well laid-out for those with low mobility, with all rooms on the ground floor except for the office and one bedroom. Designed in a Mediterranean style, the house stays naturally cool in summer and boasts fans, while central heating keeps it cosy in the winter. A natural stone terrace wraps around the house, with dining furniture and a barbecue. Soak up the sun on a deckchair, have a dip in the pool, or why not challenge your group to a game of pétanque?

The large kitchen is perfect for whipping up anything from toast to a French feast. Avail of amenities including a fridge, freezer, stove, microwave, dishwasher and espresso machine, then enjoy your meals at a table that seats 7. The stylish living room has a comfortable sofa and flat-screen TV with a DVD/Blu-Ray player. There’s also a HiFi system and a Mac computer.

There are 4 beautiful bedrooms, all overlooking the terrace and boasting cupboards and wardrobes: The largest bedroom, on the ground floor, features a double bed, high ceilings and a pool view; the second bedroom has a double bed and the third has a small desk and vanity plus a sofa bed for one. The ground floor also hosts all the bathrooms; one with a bathtub and walk-in shower, one shower room and one separate WC. The upstairs bedroom has a double bed, 2 chairs, 2 nightstands and its own exit, with stairs leading to the garden.

The swimming pool measures 8 x 3 metres, features an alarm and is open from early June until late September.

End cleaning, linen and towels are all included in the rental price.

There is private parking on site (a road in the property fits more than 5 cars and features a gate that can be closed for safety). Smoking and pets are allowed.

Tranquil but tired villa

  • 2 of 5

The villa is in a beautiful location close to saintes and cognac towns. It is also very conveniently situated for day trips to beaches. However the villa is in need of an upgrade as is the pool. Our stay was marred by small issues such as a smelly toilet, tired bed linen and a pool liner that needs to be replaced. If a bit of money was spent on this villa it would be a really great holiday spot.

This dreamy villa’s position in Dompierre-sur-Charente puts you in the perfect position to explore the Poitou-Charentes region. With vineyards all around, you can easily indulge in cellar tours, especially tastings of the local Pineau des Charentes variety.

Head to the nearby Charentes River and rent an electric boat, visit the medieval town of Saintes, with its modern commercial centre, see the interesting palaeographic sites in the area or spend an afternoon in the Palmyra Zoo. Golfers can tee off at Golf Louis Rouyer-Guillet, 10km from the villa, while the beautiful beaches at the mouth of the Garonne River beckon with swimming and water sports (Royan is 47km away). Don’t miss the picturesque town of Cognac, home of the namesake brandy, just a 22-minute drive from the villa.

The nearest restaurant is at 1,6km, the closest bar is 2,8km away and there is an Intermarché supermarket 9,2km from the villa.
