Chez Chabot Ref: F17355

This three-bedroom, traditional Charente house has been transformed by the owner into a spacious and bright holiday gîte, fitted with all modern conveniences and opening onto a wonderful Mediterranean garden with a swimming pool (occasionally used by the owner). The owner, a landscape gardener, has created a lovely garden with palms, olive trees, yuccas and exotic plants, blended with several water features and areas to relax in. The pool water is kept sparkling clean by circulating it through an eco-system of water plants, much the same principle as with a mountain stream. The Roman city of Saintes is a 10-minute drive, with its street markets, cafés and restaurants and is located on the banks of the River Charente. Beaches are just over half an hour away, the zoo at La Palmyre is one of the best in Europe and there are vineyard and distillery tours at Cognac.
