About ROLAND HAINSWORTH

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 Aubeterre-sur-Dronne

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!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

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)!

fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5
We have had a fantastic holidayat this property. There were 13 in our party-3 generations, children ranging from 10 to 13. The children loved the facilities, table tennis, pool, swimming pool and the use of kayaks. Nearby they enjoyed tennis, fishing, high wiring, cycling.
the house is fabulous. There is everything you need. Outside eating area is excellent. We didnt make use of the adult or children's lounge because the weather was so good and the downstairs kitchen was perfect.
we have had many holidays in france but did not know aubeterre. It is beautiful and we loved being able to walk everywhere and not use the car!
thank you, roland for a wonderful holiday and for being so helpful but not intrusive!
Our only regret- we didn't book for two weeks!!

lovely house, great location, wonderful holiday

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week here as three families and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was large and comfortable – easily big enough for our party of 13.
The location is excellent – you can walk into the village with its numerous great restaurants and selection of shops in two minutes. The garden ends at the river and you can kayak directly from the end of the garden. The river beach with its café and safe swimming is five minutes by foot or canoe. Shopping and market at Riberac (ten minutes by car) is good and the surrounding countryside is lovely – quiet and picturesque.
The pool is large and very warm to swim in with the extra heating and the house is well equipped – two kitchens, BBQ, bikes, canoes, table tennis, pool table, two lounges, Sky TV, two terraces to eat out on etc.
It caters well for different age groups from young children to grandparents and had the best of both worlds – village living and country relaxation. The house has been carefully modernised and the standard of accommodation is very good. Thanks for a lovely week.

A lovely house in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5
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
