About Bankie Williams and Tanya Field

We are a family with two young children and haven't once regretted buying our French retreat, part of which we would like to share with you.

Bankie Williams and Tanya Field purchased this House in 2000

Why Bankie Williams and Tanya Field chose Vibrac

We bought the property in this location because it met two key criteria for us. First it is situated in a peaceful and tranquil village with a river running by the property and secondly, we wanted somewhere within an hours drive of a number of regional airports (Bordeaux; Poitiers; Limoges; Angouleme). The new TGV train line from Paris to Angouleme means that the journey to Nos Reves is now even easier for those who are not keen on flying or driving

What makes this House unique

Peace and quiet and the fact that children can play, all day, safely in the pool. Simple living; BBQ's and salads. The locally produced Pineau des Charente must be sampled (chilled of course). The climate is sublime!
