"La Roseraie" is a large, Charentais farmhouse full of character with beautiful exposed oak beams, fireplaces and stone and wood floors.
A 10m x 5m swimming pool will provide the family with endless hours of summer pleasure. There are several acres of mature gardens with a variety of trees, an orchard, rose and herb gardens to explore and flowers in abundance around the lawn areas. Throughout the gardens there are tables and chairs and hammocks!
Four Spacious bedrooms, modern bathrooms and large lounges provide space and tranquillity for all. Three bedrooms have a double and 2 single beds, and one, a double and 1 single, so the house is big enough for several families to holiday together. All bedrooms are en suite with their own shower or bathrooms. There is a large mezzanine games room with pool table, table football, darts and tv /dvd player, and downstairs there is a big dining kitchen. The stone walls keep the property cool in summer, and a large shaded patio provides an ‘al fresco’ dining area for hot summer evenings.
With a table tennis table, badminton court and trampoline as well as the swimming pool, there's plenty to keep the kids engaged! In addition we have friendly pigs, sheep and lambs, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs and hens which the children are welcome to help feed.
"La Vallee des Singes" ( Monkey Valley) is 400 metres walk away, a stunning animal park with over 30 species of monkeys and apes including gorillas and the largest group of Bonobo chimpanzees in Europe.
At "La Roseraie" you are right in the real French countryside surrounded by fields of sunflowers, barley and sweetcorn, but only 2 kilometres from the friendly small town of Romagne with a boulangerie, post office, bar and esteemed restaurant. We have bicycles to lend out without charge, so you can leave the cars on the drive. Larger towns of Civray and Couhe with twice weekly markets, supermarkets, and cinemas are both 12 kilometres away. Within easy drive are historic towns and the rivers Charente and Vienne for canoeing and swimming. Vienne's main tourist attraction Futuroscope is 45 minutes drive away, and the region's capital town of Poitiers even closer. Seaside resorts of La Rochelle and the islands of Ile de Re - see if you can spot Johnny Depp! - and Ile d'oleron are less than 2 hours away.
Here in the heart of the Vienne countryside you can escape from hustle and stress of everyday life. Only 400m from the fascinating La Vallée des Singes (Valley of the monkeys) and just 45 minutes from Futuroscope.
