SPACIOUS RESTORED CHARENTAIS FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL

Saint Dizant Du Gua Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 shower, 2 toilets, wash basins, sleeps 8

La Cigogne is a restored, 4 bedroom Charentais farmhouse in the hamlet of the same name. Built around a courtyard, the house is in the centre with the 'chais' on one side that has been converted into a summer room. There is also a sitting room and an open-plan kitchen/dining area. The courtyard has a patio and a built-in barbeque. The private, enclosed out-door pool with an elevated terrace is on the other side of the 'chais'. There is a hedged, fenced garden with breakfast patio, lawn and parking space as well as a one-car garage at the back of the house. The surrounding area is rolling Cognac vinelands with woods and arable farmland. It is ideal for walking and bicycling. The Gironde Estuary is close by and the Atlantic beaches not far away.

Sailing Details: A sailing school has just opened up at Port Maubert where there is the option for novices, including children, to learn to sail as well as the possibility for day trips into the estuary

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was great as was the weather and the local area.



We will no doubt be back again!

LOUIS ARMSTRONG'S WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD IN REAL!

This is THE place. Unfortunately not ours but still, once you get there you will feel at home, as if in YOUR home. Every possible thing imaginable is there: so it is not merely a holiday home, it is a home where you could live 365 days every year.
Well situated for calm or active holidays and within easy reach of a motorway exit. We have been to several holiday homes over the past few years but this really blew it, we are looooonging to go back. And if ever we are lucky enough to retire, it will be somewhere in the neighbourhood, where we will try to recreate the cosy atmosphere of the Cicogne. You can bet on that!
