Set in 6 acres of beautiful French countryside, our peaceful gite with all amenities is the ideal base to explore the surrounding areas or fish in our own private spring fed 2 acre lake. The lake contains carp up to 30lb, roach, perch and sunfish. There is an enclosed childrens play area with swings, slides, badminton net and rackets. There is also an above ground circular swimming pool. We are in a quiet and peaceful village, yet only 10 minutes to the town of Chabanais with all amenities.

About the neighbourhood
We are in the small sleepy village of Chirac. A short stroll into the village will bring you to the lovely old church of Saint-Pierre. There is a bar/restaurant in Chirac which is a 5 minute walk away. We are 10 mins away from the town of Chabanais which has the river Vienne running through it. The town has all amenities, i.e. supermarket, dr's, pharmacy, restaurants, post office, etc. The medieval town of Confolens is approx 20 mins away and is famed for its folk festival in August where artists from around the world come to perform in the towns cobbled streets. Calling all vintage and classic car lovers - The Circuit des Remparts is held in Angouleme (approx 50 mins away) in September where vintage and classic cars are shown then raced. There are lots to do and see for all ages,...
