Holiday Rental House
La Fanchon is one of three gites at Les Quatre Puits, a beautiful 73 acre Charantais country estate. It's a great place for families, situated in the Bordeaux wine region and there are plenty of places to visit and things to do on-site and nearby. Le Logis des Quatre Puits is a B & B and many gite guests extend their stay at the beginning or end of their holiday. La Fanchon has everything you needed for a superb holiday in rural France. There is large comfortable living room with satellite TV with English channels and a DVD player. There is a fully equipped American-style kitchen as part of the living room. From the rear of the gite a door opens onto a private terrace with access to the swimming pool (shared with the other two gites and the B & B), with sun loungers and parasols.

On the ground floor is a spacious double bedroom, a shower room and a separate toilet. On the first floor there are two twin bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate toilet. On site we have plenty of games, a table tennis table, a pool table and a sports field. Guests are welcome to roam the grounds. The estate is fenced and gated and we have secure parking with cctv. Although we are just over an hour from the seaside, only five minutes drive away is a stunning lake with a sandy beach, boating and a bar / restaurant. Nearby there is horse riding, kayaking, karting, jet-skiing, and of course, wine-tasting. We welcome our guests with a drinks reception when we let you know everything on offer on-site or nearby. Each week of the summer season we host a meal for everyone on site, including our fortnightly crepe nights, which are very popular. We also offer gourmet vegetarian meals (24 hours notice required).More
