Chez Les Hirondelles is a large and beautifully renovated stone barn standing on a hillside with outstanding views. Our property includes all modern facilities, yet still retains the character features of huge oak beams and Charentais stone walls. There are breathtaking views from every room, and the well established, spacious garden leads in to the surrounding countryside. The fantastic open sided covered hanger offers another patio, meaning you can sit out in the fresh air having a BBQ, come rain or shine looking out far across the sunflower fields, woodlands and hills beyond. For those who enjoy star gazing, the night sky here is amazing with no light pollution at all. The 10 x 5 m pool is totally private to the property and surrounded by a decking patio with plenty of space for sun bathing and a choice of areas for alfresco dining. The pool has an alarm system and is fenced so very safe for children. The barn can sleep up to 12 people and is extremely spacious both inside and out and makes for an inexpensive option for a large family or group get together.
The stunning town of Aubeterre sur Dronne is only 15 minutes away with its unusual Romanesque monolithic underground church and voted one of the most beautiful villages in France. A wonderful beach and swimming area has been created at the river, which is great fun for all the family. There is also a lovely golf course near Aubeterre with a bar, terrace and restaurant.
Montmoreau St Cybard is a lively town with a train station (you can catch a train to nearby Angouleme or Bordeaux here), bars and restaurants, swimming pool and tennis courts, which are only a few minutes away.
