The properties occupy a delightful rural location offering peace, quiet and space, but at the same time being only 10 mins from all amenities and 40 mins from several wonderful sandy beaches. Although no pool, there is the river Charente 200 m down a grassy track with a small pebble beach for easy access for swimming, canoeing (we have one here you can use) or fishing.
There are three cottages offering different types of accommodation, secluded from each other, all bright, sunny and airy with high ceilings, exposed beams, wood burning stoves and heating. This is an ideal spot for those of you wishing to spend a few months in this sunny region, discovering life in France, searching for a new French home or just taking time out. There are mature trees and space between each offering shade and privacy where wanted. There is a large garden for you to choose a shady (or sunny) nook to sit and contemplate. The rates are per month this year as we are not offering short term holiday lets. English French-speaker on-site much of the time.
Changeover days: We changeover on Saturdays generally, although there is flexibility outside June, July and August
I am a retired englishwoman sharing my life with a Frenchman. I came here for the outdoor life, peace, quiet and space. We swim in the river every day throughout the long summer.
I chose this house after a long search for its beautiful setting in a charming environment, quiet and peaceful and yet not isolated from the rest of the hamlet or the towns nearby. The beaches, which are magnificent and all sandy, are all within a 40 minute easy drive.
These lovely cottages are set in rural surroundings with the river Charente 300m down a small track. There is a little stony beach into the river from which you can swim, canoe or fish. Several excellent golf courses and horse-riding centres are within easy reach, the nearest being only 15 mins away just outside the beautiful Roman town of Saintes, where you can find indoor and outdoor pools and plenty of other things to do. The countryside is ideal for cycling as there is little traffic. There is an abundance of local châteaux and vineyards where they are happy for you to taste their wines and cognac. Restaurants and bars abound as do fascinating activities for all
