A tranquil, dog-friendly, holiday destination for the whole family. Our 400 year old farmhouse sleeps 8 and is dog friendly. It is set within 5.5 acres of landscaped grounds including a 1.5 acre well stocked fishing lake, orchard, sun terrace, games area and pool. All exclusively yours for the duration of your stay.
The Charente is the second sunniest region of France so we have obviously placed plenty of emphasis on the outdoors. This might be a relaxing walk around the lake or exploring and taking in the abundant wildlife. It could be laid back on a lounger, soaking up the sun, or floating on a ring in the pool while you read a book. You can exclusively fish the spring fed lake or if you fancy something a bit more sociable you can sit around the BBQ and play any number of outdoor games.
The lake is stocked with a head of carp to over 30lb and growing. There are also sturgeon, grass carp, tench, pike and roach.
This is a holiday destination for the whole family. The living room comes complete with full SKY TV, so there's plenty of sport and several movie channels available including the football and F1, plus all the usual children's channels including Disney.
Upstairs there is a second TV with an Xbox 360 and plenty of games as well as another DVD player so there should be disagreements regarding what to watch. The kids room also comes with an assortment of games and books.
The games room comes complete with a full size snooker table and dart board while the sun room is equipped with nothing but pleasant views, plenty of light and big window sills or sofas on which to chill and catch up with some reading.
The house is available all year round and comes complete with full central heating as well as a log burner in the main living room.
We have tried to take the best we have seen from our years of holidaying in France so we hope you'll want for nothing. Bedding and towels are included so you can travel lighter and we have a dishwasher plumbed in as well as all the usual mod cons. The kitchen comes complete with kettle, coffee maker and Tassimo.
The house is located on the border with the Dordogne and Limousin. If you like the outdoors then you are in the heart of some beautiful countryside, the Perigord Limousin National Park is only 300 metres away and the area is crossed by fantastic cycle routes. You are only 10 minuets away from the great lakes of the Upper Charente and their beaches, watersports and restaurants.
If you need a little bit of retail therapy you are only 15-25 minutes away from the picturesque towns of Montbron, Rochechouart and Chabanais but if you need something larger you are only 45 minutes from Angouleme and 50 minutes from Limoges.
