The house has internet access, flat screen TV's, DVD players, microwave,dishwasher, sun loungers and a gas BBQ. We also have a small lake with carp in it. There are lovely walks through the woodland which is surrounded by sunflowers. There is an abundance of interesting bird and wildlife. The local river 'The Boutonne' has excellent fishing and is less than a 15 minute walk from the property. There are many cycle routes in the area and we can arrange bike hire for you. General description: We are located 5 minutes from junction 34 of the A10 Paris to Bordeaux motorway, 45 minutes from La Rochelle (which is also the closest airport) and, 25 minutes from the nearest beach. Connections to the UK are straightforward with flights all year round from Stansted and Birmingham East Midlands, and summer from Southampton and Bristol. Road connections are also good with the nearest French port of St. Malo three and a half hours distant. The buildings are nicely positioned in the centre of the property with gardens all round. The house has gardens at the front and a grassed terrace shaded by Acacia trees at the back. Part of this grassed area has been paved to make a bbq area. Kitchen and dining: Facing the garden and with views across the valley there is a huge country kitchen with a handmade solid oak table which seats 16. There is also an 8 foot breakfast bar with stools, which is great for feeding the children and for sitting at with a glass of Pineau (local fortified wine which is served chilled) while someone else makes the dinner. There is also a wood burning stove fitted. There is a flatscreen tv in the kitchen with a UK Freeview system and dvd player. There is also a SONOS sound system with speakers on the floodlit terrace as well as throughout the chateau. Living rooms: Opposite there is a large lounge with ornate carved ceiling and views across the garden and pool. In this lovely room are 3 sofas and a selection of armchairs arranged around the original fireplace. Bedrooms: The house also has 2 bedrooms on the ground floor. One has a king sized bed with an en suite bathroom, and the other a king sized bed with 2 additional singles, this is intended primarily to be a childrens room as it has a big tv, dvd player etc. The shower room for this bedroom is also on the ground floor, the other side of the entrance hall. Upstairs there are a further four bedrooms, all en suite. The master suite, which faces the back garden, with a view across the valley, has a king sized bed and a huge bathroom with large corner bath, huge shower, bidet, toilet and double sink. The other back bedroom (with same view) has a king sized bed with two additional singles, and an en suite bathroom with a large corner bath which has a shower attachment, bidet, sink and toilet. The third bedroom facing the front, has two three foot singles which can be zipped together to make a queen sized bed, and an en suite bathroom with bath and shower over, plus a sink and toilet. Bathrooms: Five out of the 6 bedrooms are en suite all have baths as well as showers. The sixth bedroom has a shower room across the corridor. Heating: Full oil fired central heating and wood.More

About the neighbourhood
St. Jean d’Angèly - Medieval market town full of character with leafy squares, timber houses and cobbled streets. The 15th Century clock tower and abbey towers impose on the skyline and the colourful twice-weekly market selling superb regional produce is an assault on your senses. Enjoy a fresh coffee at one of the pavement cafés and soak up the atmosphere. You will find abundance of restaurants and bars catering for all tastes. Swim indoors at the Atlanty’s aqua centre with 50m amazing waterslide. There are more water sports to be had at the lake by paddling a canoe or kayak. For the less energetic, a round of crazy golf might prove a better alternative. For children with a need for speed, Go Karting offers fast track fun. Afternoons 3– 8pm.

How to get there

We can arrange car hire and airport pick-ups if you need it.
