Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 showers, own private pool, in quiet relaxing grounds

This lovely French home has all the amenities you could wish for.

There are three bedrooms, each with its own toilet, basin and shower arrangements, and one having an ensuite bathroom.

All rooms have the best quality beds for your total comfort. The main bedroom has a double bed, whilst the other bedrooms have two three foot singles that can be joined together to make doubles as required.

The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven; a Gas hob, and a Microwave oven. There is also a Spanish plancher on the terrace for those who enjoy impromptu al fresco meals. There is plenty of crockery and cutlery; and the amenities include a dish washer; two fridges and a washing machine. The dining room has a feature of a long table made by a local artisan that can seat twelve people if required!

Internet access, many board games, and British television channels are available for those who want to keep up with their favourite weekly soaps. We even have a family of red squirrels in the garden, and there is a prize of a bottle of wine to whoever can get a photo of two of them together. Well nigh impossible - but it has been done!

Being inland from the Atlantic, the Charente benefits from a micro-climate and experiences the second most sunshine hours within France after the Mediterranean coast. You can enjoy the morning sun having breakfast on the terrace, and you will certainly want to take advantage of our swimming pool. The sun is constantly on the pool which is 10m long by 5m wide. There are roman steps down to the shallow end at approx. 1m and it falls away to 1m75cm at the deep end. There are ample sun umbrellas to shade you from the heat of the day.

For the more energetic, we have bicycles to explore the region.

Situated in a small commune in amongst vineyards, we are very close to the 14th tee of the Cognac Golf course, for those who wish to keep up with their handicap. The scenic Charente River is less than a mile away and there are canoes in nearby Jarnac for the energetic. We are only 5kms from the famous old town of Cognac with all its cognac wineries and tastings. The Department capital, Angouleme with its famous cartoons, is only 35 minutes away by car. The nearest coast is at Royan with its lovely sandy beaches and small bays about 50 minutes away.

You are guaranteed a relaxing holiday in a most beautiful and tranquil area of France.

About The Owner

We have owned this house for over fourteen years now, and we are still friends with the previous owners. Our neighbours have taken us into their community; shown us their customs; and have given us a true welcome.

Why The Owner chose Julienne

The original house was over 200 years old and was enlarged in the 1970's. We have renovated it to add modern amenities and to make it as comfortable as possible. We have had some wonderful kind comments in our Visitors book.

What makes this house unique

The previous owners planted 18 fir trees in the approach to the house representing one of every local indiginous type. As a result we often get deer, moles and red squirrels. For bird watchers, we get lots of buzzards and other birds of prey , and you can see the hoopoe migrating through in Spring. The property covers some 4.5 acres and behind the swimming pool is an area of rough brambles where a wild boar (sanglier) lives to escape from the local hunt.

Beautiful family home with pool in great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely long drive off of the road with fruit trees on the way down. We went onto the terrace which had a generous sized table and enough chairs for us all to sit around. We were blessed with lovely weather while we were there and we went on to enjoy the terrace from first thing in the morning to last thing at night.

We entered the property through the kitchen which for us was the hub of the home, with plenty of utensils and china and I really felt it's home from home. We used to sit around the kitchen island chatting while I cooked. We did use the dining room a couple of times, however we preferred to eat either around the kitchen island or outside.

To the right of the kitchen was my favourite room, the sitting room. We honestly didn't use it very much but it was very comfortable and made me feel very french every time I looked at it, beautiful.

The house is in a great location to go exploring which we took full advantage of, turn right out of the drive to Cognac approximately 8km away and turn left into Jarnac, a similar distance away which was really convenient and easy to top up our supplies of food and wine! however it was difficult to get motivated to leave such a peaceful and relaxing location when you have a fabulous pool with plenty of sun loungers for everyone.

Upstairs were three simply but stylishly furnished double bedrooms. We had the bedroom with on -suite, whilst the children used the middle bedroom and family bathroom, and our friends had the end bedroom and used the downstairs shower room. With three toilets in the property there was never a queue in the morning - anyone with a family will understand that comment!

Once the children had gone to bed we spent many an evening on the terrace with a glass of marvellous French wine chattering until the early hours.

In summary, with the golf course less than a mile up the road, this really meant there was something for everyone in our party ! Our holiday was peaceful, relaxing and a great opportunity to spend some quality time together, recharge our batteries and explore France.

We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very positive comments about our house which are really appreciated. We know this is where people will be taking their main holiday, and we want very much for this to be a real home from home The house is ideal for family holidays, and we have tried to supply everything that people might need. The pool is a real asset and thoroughly enjoyable, especially when the weather is hot.
