About Bill & Guilaine Woodburn
Bill & Guilaine. We are a Bi-Lingual Anglo French Couple with roots in Charente Maritime. We have 2 grown up kids. Although we have owned Brolange since 1992, we took the decision to extensively renovate and develop the house over the last few years. Having completed the task we are keen to share our property with others.
Bill & Guilaine Woodburn purchased this Farmhouse in 1992
Why Bill & Guilaine Woodburn chose Soubran
The Perfect Hideaway for a chill-out holiday out of season or an family holiday in season. Weather can stay very warm from Mid March to early November, and when a nip does get into the air in late autumn, what would be better than to curl up in front of one of 2 wood burning stoves. Plenty of indoor and outdoor living space for everyone to find their own quiet (or noisy) corner. Situated in gently rolling hills amid native forest and vineyards, it is ideal for walking & cycling. There are unlimited green lanes, tracks and country roads to explore. The house wraps itself around like you a cloak and is very private with a central patio in the middle of the property.There is a large enclosed garden for children to play in.Pick seasonal fruit from our trees for personal consumption with our blessing.This location offers a balance between a wide variety of activities, local culture & has beaches within easy reach. Situated on the border between Cognac and Bordeaux regions, several excellent distilleries and chateaux are within 20 minute driving radius. Charente has excellent food traditions, from the best butter in France, Seafood and organic meats and Cheeses, not to mention fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets. Excellent access to supermarkets/restaurants/boulangeries (Mirambeau/Jonzac/Montendre). Not at the beach, but days out at the beach very do-able
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The layout of the house is unique. Divided into 2 interconnected halves, it is ideal for 2 families or several generations holidaying together. Plenty of opportunity to spend time together, but easy to have privacy and an early night when others want to stay up.

Maison conforme à la description de l’annonce. Bill est à notre écoute et très réactif pour les réponses.
Idéal pour des vacances à plusieurs, réunion familiale. Nous étions là quelques jours pour le réveillon du 1er de l’an et n’avaons manqué de rien. Petite attention de Bill en nous laissant du bois pour faire un feu dans le poil.
Je recommande cette location.
Chere Olivia. C'etait un plaisir de vous avoir chez nous. Nouveau, dans la domaine des locations, il fait chaud au coeur d'entendre que nos invites aiment bien notre coin tranquille. Merci d'avoir laisse les lieux propre en partant! A vous revoir, j'espere.
Great living space in a peaceful location
A group of 6 of us stayed in the house at Soubran for a week's stay of relaxation and sipping red wine. We had a fantastic week! The house is distant enough from the hubbub to afford a sense of isolation, yet close enough to town to be convenient.
The house has been lovingly renovated and restored to make great living space, which best suits a family group or a small group of friends.
We found ourselves spending most of our time in the central courtyard which is a real sun trap. Most rooms in the house open up into the courtyard making it an obvious sitting/chill out space.
The modern kitchen was much appreciated, and having two bathrooms is a real bonus for a larger group.
We enjoyed days out to the swimming lake and to the coast, and made use of the bikes provided to cycle down to the lovely local village of Mirambeau. In Mirambeau you'll find everything you'll need including a wonderful boulangerie, a supermarket and some nice bars and restaurants. We'd particularly recommend a visit to Le Coeval Gris in Mirambeau where we ate probably one of the most amazing traditional French meals we've ever eaten.
Bill was very helpful during the booking process, and lost of helpful information was provided about local activities. We would certainly go back for a return visit.
Thanks very much Ali for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
