About the Farmhouse

Sleeps 6

It is a traditional charentaise farmhouse in its own walled grounds and with a pigeonnier – which in other times was part of the farmyard which had stables and little barns in which the family kept its pigs and hens and a cow
Sadly, most of these had gone by the time we arrived but we were able to use much of the stone to make a very pretty large walled garden which gives access  to the pool (9.5x4.5x1.5 meters) – enclosed in a secret garden of its own with ivy covered walls and  palm trees .

There is an entrance hall off which there is a sitting room with grand piano, books, games, television with dvd’s, cd player with cds – but by all means bring your own favourites.
There are comfy sofas and armchairs – an ideal, cool place to withdraw from the outside heat
The large,well-equipped farmhouse kitchen has a refectory table around which the whole family can gather. We have over the years amassed a variety of furniture which our guests (and family!) have described as idiosyncratic – but we like them and hope that you do too.
From the kitchen, french windows open out onto a terracotta terrace with outdoor furniture for alfresco dining, and lemon and orange trees which in summer can use a drink!. 

Up the original staircase which once led to the grain-store for the animals are three large bedrooms with oak-beamed ceilings.

Bedroom one has a french brass double bed, a chaise longue and an ‘old fashioned’ bath.

Bedroom two comes with a small french double bed, and bedroom three has two single beds which convert into a double, and a french three quarter bed. There is an en-suite shower, toilet and washbasin; downstairs is another shower room with toilet and washbasin and washing machine

The price includes electricity, gas and water – which is metered in the Charente. Cooking is by gas , and should the cylinder run out during your stay, there is a spare in the pigeonnier along with garden furniture and the barbecue.

We supply bedding, ie duvets and pillows but not linen or towels .

Pool
The Farmhouse has sole use of a pool measuring 9.5x 4.5 x 1.5 metres.
