About The Bevans Family
We are a family who has lived an International Lifestyle. We have for many years lived near France be it Switzerland, the UK or shores beyond- France has always been a draw. We love the culture, lifestyle and easy pace of living.
The Bevans Family purchased this House in 2017
Why The Bevans Family chose Genac
We loved the courtyard setting and the rural backdrop. The house retains so many original features but offers all-new baths and bright and airy spaces. We feel this offers the best of blending old with new providing us with a really comfortable place to enjoy our time.
What makes this House unique
All new kitchen and baths. A large private and secluded courtyard with an expansive back garden. The pool surround and fire pit which are created by retaining a portion of the former winemakers barn create a unique setting and focal point of the property.

Relaxing family holiday
We had a great couple of weeks staying here in August. The house is beautiful, well equipped and a lot bigger than we expected. There was plenty of space for all of us to be together or to have a little bit of peace and quiet on our own when needed. We made daily trips to the village shop for bread and breakfast pastries and we all loved the pool and outdoor space which our children made the most of. We had a couple of trips out but mainly stayed locally and it was the relaxing family holiday we all needed. There is a great supermarket close by in Rouillac and plenty of information in the house about local markets and ideas for days out.
All in all, a great relaxing holiday in a peaceful location. Great communication with the owner… thoroughly recommended.
A week of tranquility
A lovely graceful property that is more spacious than the photographs may suggest. Property is on the edge of a small rural village with a friendly bread shop just 5 mins walk away. A good supermarket and restaurant are then 15-20 mins away in Rouillac. Superb communication from the owner who is clearly passionate to ensure your stay is excellent. Highly recommended.
We had a great stay here, the property is a beautiful example of French property and living at its finest. A peaceful location to allow for a relaxing holiday. Great communication with the owner...Fully recommended.
Merci! We so appreciate your care of the house and hope to welcome you again to the Charente. Meilleurs voeux a toute la famille!
We are well-situated near Rouillac and its brand new Super U- just 5km away. The Village market in Genac is walking distance and well-stocked with basics and is a depot de pain for fresh bread, croissants, etc. twice daily. There is a traditional French market twice weekly in Rouillac, but other surrounding villages have markets other days of the week with none farther than 20 minutes away. If a larger city shopping experience is required- Angouleme is a quick drive with its many restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
Activities are plentiful and close by from canoeing on the Charente River to Golf, horse riding, bike riding, museums, Roman churches and chateau. Cognac and its many world-renowned houses is 20 minutes away. You can taste Pineau des Charentes at the local producer in Rouillac- or travel just a bit further to world-class wine making areas surrounding Bordeaux such as Graves, Pomerol and St. Emilion.
