Lovely Large Charentaise House Near Shops For Families Or Couple

A lovely traditional Charentaise house ('The Old Bakery') in Burie, 5 minutes walk to shops, 15 minutes drive to Cognac with its restaurants and distillery tours, 20 minutes drive to the Roman town of Saintes, and 45 minutes drive to the large sandy beaches of the West coast such as Royan.

It is one hour from La Rochelle (airport) and 30 minutes from Angouleme (TGV high speed train)

The house is newly-refurbished, very spacious, with comfortable brand new beds and mattresses, and with a large tranquil garden. It is perfect for family holidays, activity holidays, or couples wanting to get away from it all. It has central heating, WiFi, TV, a working fireplace, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, hob, and microwave and two impressive fireplaces. It was formerly the village bakery and is next to a Cognac and Pineau producer with vineyard. The market town of Burie has a well-stocked small supermarket, restaurant, patisserie, butcher, bank with 24 hour cash dispenser, library, and chemist all within 5 minutes walk.

The surrounding area is perfect for rambling, cycling, boating or bathing in the Charente river; visiting the Cognac houses of Remy Martin, Hennessy, Martel, and more; visiting magnificent churches such as the one at St Jean D'Angely or the Roman Ampitheatre in Saintes; or take an hour's drive to La Rochelle, the sandy beaches of Royan and Chatelaillon, or the islands: Ile de Re, ile d'Oleron, and ile d'Aix.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I are old hands at vacation rentals in France (over 30 some years)--and this spacious village house is a favorite. It's well located --adjacent to vast vineyards, a short walk to the new Carrefour suermarket (which has a excellent butcher and good bread), and in proximity to the beautiful towns of Saintes and Cognac. The owners are most genial and helpful.

August in Burie

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay in Burie, Fantastic location. Very convenient for everything. We were with Our Grand Daughter and went to the beach 3 times in a week. Burie is Capital of The Bordeliers Cognac Grand Cru, we bought some prize winning Pineau from Neighbour. Karl was very good and easy to deal with, everything very well organized, and he always respond in minutes through contact. Highly recommend staying at The Old Bakery.--Nigel

Fabuleux séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour fabuleux dans cette très jolie maison, restaurée avec goût et bénéficiant de tout le confort moderne. Les pièces sont grandes et très agréables. Le séjour est ouvert sur une très grande cuisine qui dispose d'une cheminée et donne sur un jardin très bien agencé et totalement fermé si bien que les enfants peuvent y jouer sans surveillance en toute sécurité. La région offre beaucoup de possibilités en termes d' activités : l'abbaye de Fontdouce, Cognac, Royan, Saintes, le Paléosite, les ballades en bateau sur la Charente, l'île d'Oléron, etc. Les propriétaires sont très à l'écoute et soucieux de rendre notre séjour le plus agréable possible. Enfin, les draps et linge de bain fournis ainsi que les lits faits à l'arrivée, les petites attentions tels que la bouteille de vin, les savons et le thé, ainsi que la maison d'une propreté impeccable sont autant d'atouts supplémentaires. Les enfants ont été ravis et veulent revenir ! Bref, une location parfaite dans laquelle nous reviendrons certainement et que nous recommandons sans hésiter !
