About Koen Hermans
Hello, We are Koen and Ine and we live in Belgium. In 2011 we fell in love with this beautiful region of France. Since we love the good life, great climate, great wines and cognac, this area is just perfect.
Koen Hermans purchased this Farmhouse in 2011
Why Koen Hermans chose Bellevigne
We fell in love with this beautiful region of France. Since we love wine and the warm climate, this area is just perfect. The setting within the vines of the Grande Champagne, used for the Cognac, provides astonishing views. The house is a former cognac farm, and still has the original cuves in the barn. Enjoy the sunset in our orchard!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Enjoy our 100% private pool. Take a walk through the vines and visit Distilleries in the area, where you can taste and buy some magnificent Pineau de Charente and Cognac. Drive to Royan, and take the ferry to the Medoc to visit the wine castles...you will love it! When we found this property, we almost immediately decided to buy the house and we never regret it. If you have time, visit the fabulous city of Bordeaux, about 1h15 min drive by car, or take the train in Angouleme (30 min drive to the trainstation)

Lovely family farmhouse with a great pool
Six of us stayed here for a week - the accommodation is comfortable and clean and the kitchen better stocked than mine at home! The pool is excellent and private and we enjoyed making the most of what was a perfect week weatherwise. This is a great bolthole for those wanting a well-placed escape and once the gate is shut behind you, the courtyard is a little oasis. The house is on the main road, but traffic is not too busy and this didn't spoil the experience. We recommend this house to anyone wanting a home from home escape to this beautiful part of France.
Amazing place to stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here! The house is amazing and so are the grounds, Koen & Ine were very accommodating prior to our arrival & then David was on hand once we were there if we had any questions. The house was superb with lots of space to unwind & relax - we were a family of 4 and we had our friends stay here too (2 adults & a toddler) and there was plenty of space for us all plus extra! The pool is fantastic and clean and there were all of the facilities that we required. Highly recommend!
Heaven on earth
We stayed in the Logis de Renaudes in December 2015.
The farmhouse is fantastic!
It is furnished and decorated very nice. Although it is a large house, there are plenty of cosy corners where you can have some privacy when you stay there with a lot of people. All the rooms and bath rooms are very clean.
The kitchen is equipped very well. In the kitchen there is a large table which invites to cook, eat, “meet and greet”.
The living rooms make you feel at home. As we went in December, the fire place insured a warm cosiness.
We can’t give any comment on the swimmingpool because we didn’t use it (December). Although it was Christmas time, we had very nice weather: from 15 till 19 degrees. We enjoyed the garden as it was lovely with the winter sun. The garden swing was perfect to relax!
The owners left a lot of information of the region. We went for several walks in the environment. It is a very nice region where it can be so quiet. We also visited Angoulemes and Cognac. We drank a lot of “pineau de Charentes” and visited (while tasting) the cognac farm of Duluc a few kilometers away. When you want to visit Duluc, you ‘d better call them first to be sure they hear the door bell ringing.
One thing is for sure: we go back to Logis de Renaudes. It’s heaven on earth.
A lovely relaxed and well equipped farmhouse.
This is a lovely property and worked well for us as two families. The kitchen was large and well equipped with a lovely view over the garden. We enjoyed lunches and dinners outside in the garden and we also thoroughly enjoyed swimming and playing in the large pool. We went with 4 children from 2-8 years who all enjoyed themselves and this meant that the adults could relax too. We explored the local area with the help of the information provided by the owners and would certainly consider staying in this property again.
Een zalig vakantiegevoel overvalt je bij het betreden van het domein.
