The cottage is part of a 17th century estate. Surrounded by gardens, fields & the Charente River, it has a private alley and its own access to the river. The site is picturesque, secluded and peaceful. Nice swimming, fishing, golf, hiking.
Next to Saintes, Cognac and the sea, in the heart of Saintonge Romane, you will enjoy a relaxing time and the charm of this unusual environment, a lovely place for "vieilles pierres" amateurs. The cottage used to be the farmhouse, it has been renovated to welcome guests.
The house is practical, comfortable and cozy : bedrooms upstairs, living area on the ground floor facing the garden (what used to be the farm yard !).
100 sq m at your disposal : living room open on a fully equipped kitchen with a fireplace, laundry room with closets, toilet. Upstairs: hall with books and games leads to two bedroom, 1 king size bed for 2 persons (160 cms), 2 one-person beds (90 cms), large wardrobes in each room, spacious bathroom equipped with 2 washbasins, a bathtub, an independent shower and toilet. Floors covered with "tommettes" artisanal tile, carpet and sisal. All modern conveniences. Gas central heating system for a year round occupancy (hot water and heating), heaters in each room.
All our guests love it ;-)
Holds the distinguished "Three Seagulls" label from Saintes and Saintonge Tourist Office (Three Stars).
The garden is reserved for you, looking out on a large wooded courtyard, with tables and chairs, you have your own easy chairs and even a hammock pour long naps outside under the trees.
A private access leads you to the Charente river !
Outdoor parking in private alley.
If you’re coming for fishing, biking, golf or canoeing, you can store your equipments in the garage, it is easy and practical ! NOTE We can hear trains, the traffic is light. To go to our own house, we cross the common courtyard/garden. Once there, we cannot be seen. The two houses are separate and far apart, except for this passing through.
