En Francais Ma charmant maison chartentaise avec un petit jardin est tres calme et bon pour ecouter les oiseaux, faire des balades, pour les cyclists, pour tennis, nager, visiter les marches et les chateaux. Une bonne base pour decouvrir la region, les vieux villages de caractere, les chateaux, le Marais Poitevin…….Pour 4/5 personnes il fait bon y partager des moments chalereux en familie ou entre amis. Auf Deutsch Ein hübsches, bezauberndes Häuschen mit kleinem Garten in einem Dörfchen auf dem Lande in Charente (Nouvelle Aquitaine). Ideal zum Radfahren, Wandern, Schwimmen, Wassersport, Tennis usw. Es gibt auch viele ‘Chateaux’ und Märkte in der Gegend. Ein schooner Platz zum entspannen mit Familie und Freunden. More
