Anne Styles purchased this barn in 2013
Centrally located between Cognac and Bordeaux and the mid Charent-Maritime climate.
La Chapelle is a former Winery which was renovated in 2008, and the Chai forms the North-Western corner of the building—easy to keep the wine cool in the warm climate of Haute Saintonge.
The Chai has been renovated and equipped to a high standard in 2014 and enjoys exclusive use of the Chai garden, pool, terrace and adjoining small barn.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful Chai. The accommodation is clean, spacious and comfortable with plenty of outdoor space. The owners are helpful and welcoming, with plenty of ideas if you ask where to visit. We will certainly recommend this property to friends. Good for couples or families.
This property was underestimated as it was more than we expected. Clean, well maintained and plenty of facilities even down to toys for the children. Extremely pleasant and very helpful owners without being imposing. Would certainly recommend to friends and family. Superb views especially from the seat under the tree, lovely extensive house and garden.
We had a lovely holiday here with many attractions and site seeing opportunities within easy reach. The Chai is very well equipt and is a relaxing place to stay, with its own pool and decking to watch the sun go down. The owners are extremely kind and welcoming and are always on hand if required to offer advice on days out or assist with any queries. Would recommend staying here for families and couples. I will definitely return with my family again!! A*
