Situated in the hamlet of Chez Cagnon on the southern edge of the village of Champmillon, Le Romarin is a traditional detached stone built Charentaise style house recently upgraded and equipped to a high standard to provide exceptional holiday accommodation in the Charente departement of France. The secure enclosed courtyard and swimming pool with decked seating area help make this property the perfect location for your holiday in France.
The property has 4 bedrooms comprising two doubles (one en suite), 1 twin and 1 pair of bunk beds. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven & hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a large central table to seat 8-10 comfortably. Off the kitchen, leading to the swimming pool to the rear of the property, there is a separate utility area with a washing machine and drying stand.
Also on the ground floor there are 3 spacious reception rooms: a comfortable salon, a family room with TV, and a large games/TV room with a 60" flat screen TV, Sky+ HD box and DVD player. Free wifi internet access, a PC and printer are all available for the use of our guests.
To the rear, the property overlooks the in-ground swimming pool and raised deck area with great views across the fields. There is a dining table and chairs, sun loungers and a large gas BBQ. The summer weather in this part of France has more in common with the South of France and temperatures regularly reach over 30 degrees, therefore a pool will be high on the list of priorities.
To the front of the house is a pretty garden with an enclosed courtyard and electronic gates. This is very private and enjoys a sunny aspect. There is ample parking to the rear of the courtyard.
Nestling in a truly rural location, the property is approximately 4 km from the nearest small town of Chateauneuf-sur-Charente, where you will find restaurants, boulangeries, supermarkets and a variety of other shops. The ancient town of Angouleme is 12 km away with its quality shopping, a covered market, and many other amenities including a cinema which shows English films. The town is renowned for the “Race of the Ramparts” which takes place in September each year.
The beautiful Charente river runs close to the village where there are river walks and cycle paths. Boat trips depart from the nearby towns of Jarnac (20 kms) and Cognac (35 kms) away. Boats are also available to hire from the neighbouring village of Sireuil (2 kms).
Champmillon nestles among the vineyards and sunflowers of the Cognac region and there are visits available to many of the distilleries. The nearest coastline is approximately 90 minutes’ drive away, where there are miles of lovely beaches suitable for both families and those wanting a more peaceful day out. And, if oysters are your thing this area is definitely for you!
Whether your interest is in walking, cycling (cycles can be delivered to the house), golf, fishing, horse riding or kayaking (kayaks can be hired from the next village) or you just like the idea of relaxing in the sun in a beautiful part of the world then Le Romarin is the ideal venue for your holiday.
