About Brian Cunningham-Burt

We are currently living in the property and carrying out works prior to the Summer season in preparation for our guests.

Brian Cunningham-Burt purchased this house in 2007

Why Brian Cunningham-Burt chose Charente

The former 'sous-sol' of this property was developed to create an independent apartment, there is also an internal staircase so the apartment can be accessed from within the main house, and so could be used as a guest suite or separate dwelling.

What makes this house unique

Being able to live comfortably over the two floors and room to be together as a group on one floor. The garden and pool area are large enough to cater for large groups.

Lovely 5 bedroom house with heated pool
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews


  • 5 of 5

First impression upon arrival through the security gates was 'Wow'. The house was situated on a huge corner plot with amazing garden and pool. We have 4 children and the house easily accommodated all of us with more than enough space. The facilities were like home from home and having two kitchens both up and downstairs was ideal, especially as we spent most of the time outside by the pool. Previous comments about the fridge size please ignore as big fridge freezer now downstairs aswell as upstairs fridge and small freezer. Plenty to keep kids occupied with pool table, wii and garden games. Found some lovely restaurants nearby but enjoyed cooking on the BBQ and eating outside. Brian and Sue couldn't be more helpful and also the local maintenance man who was available for any advice or help of local area.

We had an amazing stay. Thank you

A great property!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a two week stay here and have had a wonderful time. The house is so well equipped, the pool is fantastic and the house has a really homely, comfortable feel. I would agree with the previous reviewer that the lack of a downstairs fridge is frustrating as it is tricky fitting food and drink for 10 people into the one small fridge - a fridge by the outside seating area would help this, especially when you need a cold drink by the pool! A welcome pack would also be useful, although we enjoyed looking through the various leaflets. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this lovely property!

Fantastic, well equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We spent nearly two weeks here and thought it was great! It's well equipped, spacious, clean , light and airy!

The pool was fantastic, my three children would wake in the morning, & the first thing they said was, "can we go in the pool"!!!

Weather was great too, apart from a storm one night!!, I hate them!!!

Just have a couple of niggles that I would like to say,

The lack of a fridge down stairs was a little bit frustrating, there was eight of us staying and sometimes the fridge upstairs wasn't big enough for drinks and food!!! Also, there was no welcome pack/ instruction book? We have found these in most holiday homes we have visited, it tells you things like, where the fuse box is if there is a power cut, local hospitals in case you need them! Etc. Things like that.

It obviously didn't interfere with our wonderful stay and Brian was more than helpful when we did have to contact him! Thank you.

We would love to come back in the future!

A real holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely house in Jarnac. The pool was a wonderful and we even swam in the rain! Pool table and garden games were a hit with the teenagers.

Spacious rooms and good facilities. Nice large bathrooms. Sunny garden.

Watched the red squirrels chasing each other round the garden. Little garden lizards playing on the stone wall. Jarnac is a lovely town, preferred it to Cognac. Walked by the beautiful riverside. Good base - we visited La Rochelle, Ile de Re and Massignac adventure park

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two fantastic weeks at this wonderful home. The facilities were extremely good. The location was also ideal as there were several large supermarkets nearby. The house itself was at the end of a very private, quiet road. In fact, we did not venture out too much as our family enjoyed the house and pool so much. This is a good family house for us and our four children as well as their granddad!
