This delightful, well equipped Charantais cottage is full of character and offers spacious accommodation for 6 people. Centrally heated. This family owned, south-west facing house is full of charm and is a continuation of our home in the UK. Outside there is a large private garden with tremendous terrace. Garden furniture and BBQ provided. Wi-fi is running at 10mbps.

Previous visitors have described the house as, 'a very deceptively spacious and well equipped house in a superb location with lots for all ages to do.

Close to the local beaches at Royan around 15 minutes, journey with a 30 minutes drive to the ocean waves on the Atlantic Coast and Ile de l'Oleron. Ideal location for visiting La Rochelle, Saintes, Cognac and many more activities in the area.
