Spacious 5 bedroom house with swimming pool in fully enclosed garden.

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Set on the edge of a village close to the river Charente surrounded by Cognac vineyards, makes this perfect for countryside walks or cycle rides. Ample sporting facilities in the village including tennis/badminton/basketball etc satisfy active ones, and close proximity to the coast and all attractions mean great days out for all.

The house is fully equipped for 10/12 people with 5 comfortable bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, lounge/dining room and kitchen opening onto the large gardens looking out over the stream at the bottom and the fields beyond towards the river. TV/DVD facilities are available along with a book library, board games and of course WiFi throughout for those seeking other entertainment.

The 10mx5m swimming pool is complemented by a large sun terrace, fire-pit style BBQ and partially shaded dining area for those al fresco meals. There are 2 further terraces in the large garden, one elevated wisteria covered, the other hidden away overlooking the stream and countryside.

Whilst the nearest small bar restaurant is a 20 minute walk away, there are many restaurants within a 10 minute drive towards Chateauneuf-sur-Charente or Jarnac overlooked by Courvoisier chateau. Both towns have full services with choices of supermarkets or more traditional French produce markets.

No doubt when you return from these you will appreciate the ample parking at the front door !

Nice house, very friendly owners, pretty area, very quiet

  • 4 of 5

The property was a good size with a fab garden and excellent pool area. The house had quite a traditional feel, fairly basic kitchen and wooden floors throughout. Maybe not ideal for toddlers (as we discovered) as floors are very slippery, the stairs are hard to block off and noise really traveled through the walls. However, for families with older kids it would be great.

Excellente semaine en Charente

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine chez Janet et Dave.

Nous étions 4 couples avec au total 4 enfants. Grande cuisine pratique pour cuisiner à plusieurs et un superbe jardin avec piscine.

Janet et Dave sont très accueillants et très discrets.

Le village est très calme et situé tout près de la charente, idéal pour sillonner dans les petits villages typiques entre Cognac et Angoulême.
