About oliver douglas

We have had a lovely stone houses and barns in france from 2006 when we came on our summer vaction to this region and fell in love. They have been loving restored from old ruins with many orginal features retained. The whole family has enjoyed being part of this project and now spends as much time as possible at La Ville.

oliver douglas purchased this barn in 2006

Why oliver douglas chose Charente-Maritime

We were amazing lucky to find these properties and to work with local and english craftsmen to restore such beautiful stone buildings which date back to the 17th Century. The area is one of outstanding beauty in the second warmest region in france. La Ville is walking distance into a large Village which has everything you may need to make your vaction wonderful but is in the country side overlooking stunning sunflower fields best of both worlds. The area is easily accessible from England and the spanish border is only 2 hours away.

What makes this barn unique

The houses are in a peaceful rural area but there are two large towns only a ten minute drive away and the prestigious wine region of Bordeaux and Congac are only 40 minutes away. The fantastic swimming complex at Jonzac is only 20 minutes away and we have catered hopefully in the houses with everything you need from great cooking facilities, english TV, extensive books games and DVDs to the outside where there are bikes, swimming, boules and many more games and my favourite aspect of the La Ville is having a glass of red wine whilst watching the amazing sun sets over the sunflower fields.
