Ancient village house, sympathetically restored to provide comfortable high quality accommodation in tranquil surroundings.
The house has two double rooms both with full en-suite facilities and a family suite for two adults and two children again with en-suite facilities.
All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryers, seating areas and fans for those balmy nights. Meals are taken either in the guests dining room or in the private courtyard.
Breakfast consists of cereals, croissant and fruit bread with conserves, yoghurts, juice and tea or coffee.
The house sits in grounds of over an acre and is immediately adjacent to vineyards, fields and woods and enjoys views over the countryside to the medieval town of Pons with its magnificent tower and ramparts.
Conveniently located a few minutes drive from junction 36 of the A10 autoroute, we are just 5 minutes from the touristic towns of Pons and Gemozac. Here you can find plenty of bars and restaurants with lots to see and do.
Within 20 minutes are the larger towns of Saintes and Cognac. Saintes is particularly interesting for its Roman connections with many historic sites and complete Roman Amphitheatre where many cultural events are held throughout the summer. The town centre has good shopping and lots of pavement cafes, ideal for people watching.
In Cognac, why not visit the great distillery houses of Hennessey and Martell, usually combined with a trip on the river and lots of tasting.
For the children, it is 25 minutes to the glorious beaches of the Gironde Estuary where you will also find some of the best seafood restaurants on the west coast.
Further afield but still within an hours drive, are the cities of Bordeaux and La Rochelle and the picturesque town of St Emilion, home of the great wine houses.
