This is a totally refurbished old farmhouse with limestone/quarry tiled floors which sits on the edge of a small hamlet in south west France. it is an idyllic location with pretty and romantic additional separate wooden pool cottage. The Charente area is reputed to have the second highest number of sunny days (after the Cote D'Azur). The house is surrounded by sunflower fields and vineyards and is a perfect tranquil haven with only the noise of the birds and an occasional cockerel. You will experience amazing sunsets and magical night skies.

About GAY HAINES
My husband was a lawyer and part time judge and I work in advertising. This is our family home which we let out for about 8 weeks a year. We know how important your holiday is and will do everything that we can to make it special. Thank you for your interest. Gay A little background .... Perhaps the most unexpected and delightful surprise has been the great guests we have had and the charming messages left in the visitors book by our guests - this was perhaps my favourite : 'You should hang a sign on the door of Rocking Horse House warning those that enter, that the day they have to leave their heart will break.'
GAY HAINES purchased this House in 2005
