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

Guestbook comments from the owner
Only one week but we thoroughly enjoyed your house. On our first arrival we were thrilled to go through and discover all the different rooms and ‘places to be’. And through the week it felt as such a luxury to be able to read, swim, sunbath, do some emails and play a game in so many rooms/areas of the house.
Having come to Charentes for the 4th year in a row we do know the surrounds quite well, but St Dizant/La Cigogne is a bit more inland and has given us again a perspective. We have been to Mirabmeau, St Fort and Jonzac, and the ‘Pole Nature’ at Vitrezay, but we have mainly been lazing around the house, the kids exploiting the swimming pool up to the max, making good use of the barbecue, playing soccer with a soft (mousse) ball in the courtyard, and chatting over a good glass of wine/pineau by the fire or on the terrace. Thus a lovely holiday.
