Details for Maison de la Campsis 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 1 Bathroom

The property is named after the climbing Campsis that grows along the balcony with its big orange, trumpet like flowers.

The smaller of our properties, Maison de la Campsis, is all on the ground floor even though there is a room above, this area is only used for storage. The living area of this property is open plan and feels like an extension to the garden as one side is all windows, that lets in the morning sun, due to the position it is screened from the mid day and evening sun but is still light and airy. You enter into lounge area that leads onto the kitchen and dining area to the far end. The living area has wooden floors that you can still see the marks of school chairs from its original use as classrooms, to reflect the airy feel it has been decorated simply with modern colourings and a fresh clean feel.

Passirac itself is a small village, there are no shops or restaurants in Passirac itself but does have a daily bread van and stunning 12th century church. Brossac is 2 miles away, a short walk to some, with its beach fronted swimming lake, swimming pool with spa and restaurants, Brossac village hosts a local village grocers, chemist, bank, butchers, restaurant with take away pizza service and two boulangeries’.
