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 Floirac

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.

What makes this House unique
