This converted barn is now a delightful holiday cottage in Charente, just outside the market town of Saintes. While a quiet and peaceful country retreat, the French cottage is within close proximity of many of the region’s main attractions.
Warm and inviting, the open-plan floor space boasts a cozy living room and dining area beside a stone fireplace, with a book and DVD library to make yourself at home. The adjacent family room doubles as a game room for some indoor fun, and includes a sleeper sofa to sleep two extra guests in addition to the three charming bedrooms upstairs.
The spacious farmhouse kitchen is fully fitted with modern appliances and a breakfast table, with French doors leading out to the sunny garden. Outside, an acre of mature and secluded gardens filled with lavender, rosemary, and bamboo will delight the senses, while the private pool will help make the most of the ample sunshine.
Within a half hour from the property guests can enjoy the celebrated wine and Cognac regions, sandy beaches and coastlines of La Rochelle and Royan, and plenty of cultural sites – not to mention the great shopping and rich history even closer in Saintes.
