About the property

Newly renovated large 2 bed cottage (sleeps 6) with private terrace & shared pool.

2 bed cottage in the stunning Charente countryside.

The tiny hamlet of La Bucherie dates back to the early 18th century when it was the centre of a thriving loggery providing wood for a nearby forge. In the early 20th century the focus turned to farming, primarily goats for “chèvre” and many of the original buildings workers cottages were abandoned or became derelict.

In 2014 the rebuilding and renovation of 2 cottages (Hibou & Hulotte) was completed and became available for the first time in 2015 as Les Chouettes. The 3rd Cottage Harfang has been renovated over the past 12 months and is due to be fully completed in early 2018.

Situated in this hidden jewel of SW France, the Charente, Les Chouettes holiday cottages are surrounded by unspoilt countryside with direct access to many outdoor activities and places of interest whilst providing the ideal spot to relax and unwind.

Situated in the middle of the 18th century longere, Harfang is the largest of the 3 cottages and provides spacious family accommodation that still retains many original features. The cottage enters from a private driveway into the large open-plan living/ dining area with a well-equipped kitchen including fridge-freezer, oven, hob, washing machine and range of other small kitchen appliances.

An en-suite double bedroom leads out onto a patio/garden area.

Upstairs leads to a large gallery style mezzanine level with a fully furnished comfortable lounge area. At the far end of the mezzanine is an area with a double sofa-bed.

From the mezzanine, this leads to a good sized second bedroom with twin beds (and additional put up bed), an en-suite bathroom with bath/shower, washbasin and w/c.

Guests also have access to newly completed 10m x 5m swimming pool in spacious communal garden with terrace, picnic area and barbeque. There is also a 2 acre stocked fishing lake and petanque court.

Les Chouettes is the ideal place to relax and unwind but the local area has many popular sights and activities on offer.

The Charente region, which boasts the second warmest summers in France, has lush rolling green countryside which lends itself to many kilometres of walking and cycling which can be accessed straight from your front door. The Lacs of Haute Charente offer sailing, swimming and beach activities. Local rivers provide canoeing and kayaking.

Close to the Route de Coeur de Lion, the chateaux at La Rochfoucauld, Rochecouart and Etangnac are beautiful. Whilst a little further afield, day trips can be made to Futuroscope at Poitiers, the French atlantic coast and the Dordogne and the Perigueaux National Park.
