Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedroom house with private garden and swimming pool.

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.

About Rosemary Sunter

We are a family of 5 and have bought our house in France to be able to enjoy family holidays together in a pretty rural area of France. We currently live in Northamptonshire in a small hamlet in a conservation area.

Rosemary Sunter purchased this house in 2014

Why Rosemary Sunter chose Champmillon

Our house is built in the traditional Charentaise style and we have tried to keep as many of the original characteristics when updating it to make a comfortable holiday home. We enjoy all sports and the facilities in the area offer lots of activities.

What makes this house unique

The house is situated on the edge of the village and has a very private garden and enclosed courtyard. Whilst situated in a hamlet it is within easy access of the local towns which offer a wide range of restaurants and shops.

Beautiful,large house in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed for a week in this beautiful house. We were all very impressed with the size and layout of every room,it is an incredibly spacious and well decorated home. The outside I area was perfect, we enjoyed lying on sun loungers by the pool every day which is a good size and not overlooked. The house is on a quiet road and has a lovely boulongerie 5min drive away. I would definitely recommend people to come and stay here as we all had a fantastic week away and the house was the main reason. Very good value for money too.
