A beautifully restored charentaise cottage offering holiday accommodation with private swimming pool in South Western France close to the Charente/Dordogne border close to the picturesque village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne. There is easy access to the ancient city of Angouleme, Cognac, Bordeaux, the Dordogne, rivers, lakes and the golden beaches of the Atlantic coast. The Cottage has two bedrooms with ensuite (one is mezzanine with bath) and the newly renovated attached barn has another two ensuite bedrooms. Situated in a quiet hamlet surrounded by countryside, yet just 5 minutes drive from the local village of Montmoreau, this period cottage has been completely restored while maintaining its rustic charm. Le Pras has a southerly aspect and is most attractive with open stonework, shutters and terracotta tiles to the roof, which is typical of the properties in this area.
Cottage and Barn with Private Pool sleeps 2-8 guests.
About Jon Rebbeck
Bonjour! We are Jon and Rebecca, the owners of Le Pras. For most of the year we live and work in Hong Kong, as an airline pilot and singer respectfully, and we come back to France to enjoy our home as often as schedules allow! We are happy to share our home with you to enjoy and peaceful and relaxing holiday in sunny Charente!
Jon Rebbeck purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Jon Rebbeck chose Juignac
Le Pras is a very relaxing place for a holiday. It is rural yet not isolated as there are two other properties in the hamlet and the small town of Montmoreau is only a five minute drive. We have 4 bedrooms all with ensuite (3 shower, 1 bath), two of which were a new addition for 2016. There are many attractions to visit in the area, it's great for walking or cycling, or just sitting next to the private pool with a good book! It's about as opposite to Hong Kong in every way and we love coming here to unwind whenever we can!
What makes this Cottage unique
The main attraction for us was the old traditional Charantaise cottage attached to the large barn. The cottage has been restored, keeping features such as the beams and stone walls whilst the barn extension is a mix of contemporary and traditional french decor with just a hint of an asian flavour! The caretakers live a short walk down the lane and they maintain the house and garden, and always happy to provide our visitors with local information. We are very flexible and out of peak season we are happy to welcome smaller groups & couples at an off-season rate.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your lovely holiday home; you've done a fabulous job. It was so comfortable, homely, welcoming and just perfect! Great use was made of the pool and the hammock especially and much good local food eaten. I can see the place is well loved and we know why! Directions great, everything just worked like clockwork. I would recommend to anyone without hesitation. We were just a family of four so we were spoiled for space; would be great to go back with extended family/friends as there is room for many more both inside and out. Had a fabulous day on the Atlantic coast but were otherwise very lazy and just enoyed being in such a lovely place.
Well thought out and managed
This was a last minute booking that we decided to take a chance on. Jon was very helpful & despite us both being new to HomeAway we managed to conclude the booking between us, not the most straightforward of processes but that's not Jon's fault.
Arrived at the house & was really impressed with the effort that had been made by the owner & his managers to provide a holiday home that has just about everything that you might need, spacious & welcoming whilst the two parts to the house are traditional & contemporary, it is perfectly proportioned for families. The pool was one of the best we've experienced after several trips to the region over the years. Really nice grounds.
A car is essential as the nearest modest sized villages / towns aren't too close. Not a problem for us though.
I'd recommend the cottage to anyone who might be thinking of visiting this part of France. Overall a really nice place, Thanks to Jon, Rebecca, Tina & Neil for providing us with a particularly enjoyable and relaxing base.
