About Caroline

We have 2 children (aged 10 & 13), who love spending time in the pool and surrounding areas. We have spent time here walking, sometimes cycling - but mostly on the beach, shopping and visiting the local sites.

Caroline purchased this house in 2014

Why Caroline chose Boutenac-Touvent

We purchased Beauvoir in 2014 after falling hopelessly in love with the house, rooms, private pool and stunning views across the valley. The house is located in the idyllic village of Boutenac-Touvent, a quiet piece of rural France situated on the South-West Coast in the region of the Charente-Maritime, within 25 minutes of local beaches, close to the historical port of Mortagne-sur-Gironde, local amenities, and entertainment.

Built in the style of a Maison d'Maitre, Beauvoir's large rooms offer space for families, without losing the charm of an authentic French property.

With small children ourselves, the property is fabulous for little-ones. The private pool is secure at the rear of the property, and the small road to the front is only accessible by a few local village houses. In addition, both front and back gardens are secure.

It is truly a place to relax and enjoy some French hospitality in either summer or winter.

There's loads to do in and around the Charente Maritime. The glorious beaches, idyllic towns with their regional produce, to children's entertainment and tourist attractions - the Charente-Maritime has something for everyone. Below is a selection of some of the activities we have enjoyed as a family. 

Le Chateau des Enigmes

Les Antilles de Jonzac

Escape Castle

Indian Forest Adventure

Talmont Sur Girond

Family Fun Park

We have found that almost all of the tourist attractions speak English - and even those that are not typical tourist areas - speak English also - and if not - why not try out some French - most people are very helpful. Failing it all - we use translations apps ALOT!
