La Hortensia is a delightful 2 bedroom gite on two levels facing north in a 17th century stone building. On the main level, l'Hortensia has an updated country feel, with a full kitchen, including dishwasher and Insta-pot. There is a large fireplace in a room filled with cozy, country style furnishings. The upper level has two-bedrooms and two 160 cm beds, all with white sheets and comforters. The private, walled garden has seating for four and a barbecue. We have fully renovated the private garden space behind this gite, with a gate to provide a safer space for children or pets.
Guests are welcome to wander the near four acres of grass and gardens, hike and bike in the 40 hectares acres of woods that surround the property, or relax in the private pool we share with guests.
We live onsite, along with our property manager. We are here to help you to enjoy a perfect stay.
Domaine de Montboulard offers guests a charming 15th century main house and 17th century buildings surrounded by a calm forest. We are fortunate to have several major grocery stores within 5 minutes, as well as nearly 40 restaurants (we will tell you our favorites) within 10-15 minutes in Angoulême, Soyaux and the surrounds.
Parking is spacious and free. Adult bicycles are available on a first come first served basis.
We provide firewood for your enjoyment throughout the winter season.
We can accommodate an extra person with a folding bed for a small charge.
You can arrange to have fresh French pastries and breakfast delivered to your gite in the morning, and you can arrange for us to stock your refrigerator with a variety of meals that you can prepare without shopping.
Our 45-person event space opened in January, 2018.
