Ideal touring base
This detached house nestles in the centre of a quiet village just by the 11th-century church. Lovingly restored, this holiday property, set amidst vast gardens, features many of the original oak beams and exposed Charentaise stone walls. There is a fully fitted kitchen including a breakfast table area, whilst the main dining table is set off the lovely lounge section, which features a woodburner ensuring year round comfort.
There is a front garden and a south-facing private terrace at the back of the house. Additionally, there is a piano, table football and a library section at the top of the stairs.
The nearest town is Jonzac, 7kms, which has a stunning château, all services, restaurants and bars, a waterpark and a free beach lake. The sea and the lovely sandy beach at Meschers-sur-Gironde can be reached within an hour, or the resort at Royan is another 10km up the coast. Try also to visit Cognac, 40kms, where you can see its famous distilleries. The historic city of La Rochelle is just over an hour away and well worth a visit.
