The separate gite is a large recently converted 17th Century barn with a habitable space of 70m2. The conversion has been done beautifully to create a split-level studio flat with bedroom, kitchenette (fridge, hob, microwave) and a separate shower room with loo and basin.
Dining Room (with Charentaise fireplace and wood burning stove), Double Garage, Cellar and additional storeroom. Large Garden room and log store plus workshop. Electrics in perfect condition.
A wonderful place from which to admire the views, paint or read.
The house and barn surround a large courtyard and there is a small garden and a second patio area.
The property is close to the bustling towns of Cognac, Jarnac and Angouleme. The house is easily accessible by air with local airports at La Rochelle (90 mins), Limoges (100 mins), Bordeaux (120 mins) or Poitier (120 mins).
The nearest shops can be found at Aigre and Rouillac. Both of these towns have regular markets, good inexpensive restaurants, and chances to experience authentic local life. Perhaps a game of boules in Rouillac or a 'flutter' in the gambling 'Café du Commerce' in Aigre, where the locals meet really early for their morning coffee, a shot of brandy and a game of lotto!
The enormous sandy beaches of Royan, Didier St George or further up to La Rochelle are all within easy reach for a day basking in the sun. For golfers there is the Cognac Golf Club set in the middle of the open countryside. A wonderful 18 hole 'par 72' in the middle of the vineyards overlooking the river Charente. There is a restaurant there in a hundred year old farmhouse with a terrace overlooking the course
