Overview

About the property

Beautiful converted Barn + Pool. - Peaceful in the Heart of the Countryside.

Situated in the Charente region of France, yet close to the border of the Dordogne and Haute-Vienne, our beautifully converted barn offers all the modern facilities yet retains many character features. Surrounded by gently rolling hills and sunflower fields, La Tourterie makes an ideal base for walking, mountain biking, horse riding, wine tasting, canoeing, fishing, golfing and site seeing.

The gite has recently undergone a total refurbishment throughout, offering guests all the modern facilities and furnishings expected for a relaxing holiday.The property is spacious and arranged over two floors with the ground floor being an open plan living space, with direct access to both front and rear gardens. There is a flat screen T.V. DVD and Wi-Fi connection.

The private grounds are landscaped and the rear garden has an above ground pool with patio area adjacent. To the rear of the gite is a shingle area with table and chairs and BBQ for those relaxing 'Al Fresco' evenings sipping wine and watching the beautiful sunsets.

There are childrens' indoor and outdoor toys/games and two bikes for guests to use. Parking.

La Tourterie is a tiny hamlet 15 minutes walk from the quiet village of Montemboeuf where you will find all the essentials you will need. We are only 15 minutes drive from the pretty town of La Rochfoucauld with its imposing chateau and full range of shops, bars and restaurants. The nearby leisure lake at Lavaud offers scenic picnic sites, sandy beaches, swimming, sailing, mountain biking and has a fantastic adventure park for the children.

The Charente is full of culture and a great many things for people to see and do. There are a lot of activities for children on the doorstep and we are close to the wonderful city of Angouleme. The countryside around us is stunning making a perfect destination for cycling and walking with the Lakes of Haute Charente with its sandy beaches just 15 minutes away. We are surrounded by stunning chateaux and Cognac is less than an hour away. We are situated in a small hamlet but have the village of Montemboeuf with its shops and bars just 1 km away. We are very lucky in that we have an abundance of good restaurants in the area and the lovely towns of Montbron and La Rochefoucauld with its imposing chateau and easy 15 minutes drive.

About isabel evans

We have spent many wonderful holidays in France over the years and explored most areas. Last year we decided it was time for us to move from England to the beautiful Charente area to realise our dream of living a quieter more relaxing lifestyle.

We were drawn to this area in particular, because of the beautiful countryside and lakes, the slow pace of life and friendly local community who welcome you with open arms.

La Charente is typically French with many old traditions still practiced. We love to visit the many local markets, have a lazy lunch in one of the wonderful local restaurants and watch the world go by, or visit Limoges or Angouleme for an occasional shopping day.

We have certainly picked a wonderful part of France and there is still so much to explore and enjoy!

Lovely gite in a beautiful area of France

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed here last week and enjoyed a peaceful relaxing week. The house was fully equipped and the beds were very comfortable. Large garden, outdoor seating and BBQ. If we were visiting this area of France we would definitely rebook this house.

La Grange Souris although situated in a rural setting, which is very peaceful and relaxing it is also ideally placed for easy access to many local attractions etc.

Montemboeuf is 1 km away with a butchers, bakers, tabac, Spa, bank, post office, bar etc. and this is an easy level walk from the property. Supermarkets are situated within 10 kms of the property. There are lots of good restaurants close by to suit every pocket.

The lakes of the Haute Charente are about a 15 minute drive away where you can do a lot of watersports and there is a man made beach. Horse riding is available near the lakes as is the childrens adventure park. Markets are abundant in the spring and summer as are musical events.

Angouleme is about 25 minutes away by car where the water park is and plenty of shops.
