Styled more on a boutique hotel than a traditional French gite - A fantastic use of stone, bleached wood and light contemporary furnishings along with a roof terrace perfect for an alfresco breakfast or wine and cheese as you watch the sun go down makes Le Batiment a very special place to stay. The house is converted from a traditional stone barn and stands in the small, peaceful and very pretty French village of Puymoreau. The village is surrounded by the rolling countryside of the Charente Maritime region, bordered by vibrant sunflower fields. All the old features of exposed stone walls and original beams have been carefully preserved but the finish is light, airy and contemporary to give a comfortable living space with all modern comforts. We believe that time away is precious and we want our guests to have the best experience possible

We have owned our home in France for 15 years and 5 years ago we converted one of our stone barns to create Le Batiment. We love this house and this beautiful part of France with its lovely climate and look forward to helping you to explore it too...
Lesley purchased this House in 1998
Why Lesley chose La Benâte
We think this is the perfect area in France to own a house. It has more sunshine than any other region of France after Provence but is less crowded and more unspoilt than the South Coast. We are set amongst farmland and sunflower fields but just 30 minutes from the coast.
What makes this House unique
Le Batiment was designed to be a home away from home. We designed it based on our own experience . We believe that time away is precious and we want you to relax and enjoy your stay in lovely surroundings.
