This beautiful country-house is located on the Charente/Dordogne border, just a few minutes’ drive away from Aubeterre-sur-Dronne (listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France). The house is easily accessible by road. BA, Ryanair and Easyjet between them give you the choice of flights to Bordeaux, Bergerac, Limoges or Poitiers from various parts of the UK.
The house has all modern amenities (including internet access) and can accommodate up to ten people.
Our spacious country-house is about 150 years old, but the interior was completely refurbished in 2014. It was redecorated in a modern style with luxurious furniture, fixtures and fittings. The restyling was inspired and led by the renowned Dutch designer, Joris van Grinsven (www. Seigneursdeclerand. com). Joris has restyled many historic French houses and hotels and given them a new future whilst at the same time, respecting the historic elements in the original buildings.
The garden around the house and pool is laid to lawn, but includes lavender beds and some fine majestic trees offering lovely, aromatic shade. The three rooms on the south-facing rear of the house open onto the wide, very pleasant terrace. With its large family-sized table and parasols, what better way can there be to unwind and enjoy the local produce?
In the sunniest part of the two-acre garden we have built a new 12mx6m swimming-pool surrounded by a deck to soak up the southern sun. The pool is safely fenced.
There are shops for your everyday necessities in Aubeterre (3km), and St. Severin (5 km). Your nearest large supermarkets (Intermarché and Lidl) are in Chalais (10km) and Riberac (14km). The larger towns of Riberac, Angoulême and Périgueux are within 30 minutes to one hour’s drive.
You will find the 9-hole golf-course at Longeveau just 5 minutes away, with 18-hole courses in Angoulême and Périgueux. There are many nice and safe roads to walk or cycle along. The river Dronne is well-known for its canoeing and you can hire canoes of all types in Aubeterre.
