About Roland Hainsworth

Having moved from Cornwall to France in 2005, We spent two years renovating a luxury manor house overlooking the market town of Chalais and successfully built a rental business that grew annually until December 2011 when he purchased Maison De Fleuve and moved to Aubeterre. The extensive renovations were completed in March 2013. The aim was create the perfect property for group/ family holidays.

Taking what we learned from the last 6 years,we feel we have achieved that goal.

ROLAND HAINSWORTH purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Roland Hainsworth chose Aubterre sur Dronne, Location, location, location!! Idyllic setting overlooking the river, close proximity to the riverside beach and everything you require from the local village shop, bakery, butchers and chemist, plus a great choice of restaurants in the village square and the hotel bar. All less than 5 minutes walk! Locally there are further great facilities - such as a water park, several golf courses, a Formula 3 race-circuit, go-carts, jet-skis, quad bikes, tennis and - of course - fishing!

Nature with a beautiful French village/ More for the kids by far, more than any other house i know/ safe river frontage/ superb house layout with plenty of areas for personal space/ Heated pool( needed spring and early summer and great for a night swim)!

A lovely house in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We, an extended family of 12, stayed here in August 2013 for a week and wished we'd have booked 2 weeks!
The house is on 3 levels. I'll start with the cellar, this is where me, my wife and 2 of my children stayed. This has been modernised into a self contained apartment with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room and a fully fitted kitchen. This leads out onto a huge patio area with a pool table and table football and a large seating area. There is also a BBQ area around the side of the house. From the patio area we go down a few steps to the pool. There were a few sunbeds, not enough to go round all of us, but there's also a grassy area we used for sunbathing.
The ground level : The front door leads through to another fully fitted kitchen on the right and a double bedroom with bathroom to the left of the hallway. To the rear is a huge living room and another patio area.
Upstairs there are a further 4 bedrooms, 1 has en-suite, and a further family size bathroom.
Overall, the property is very clean and modern.

The river beach is about a 5 minute walk away and is well worth a visit.
The village square is also about a 5 minute walk up the hill where you'll find numerous bars and restaurants.
It's worth booking in advance for these restaurants in peak season as they do get fully booked.

I would definitely recommend staying at this property,

Lee
