This property has been renovated by its current owners. It has large internal rooms and equally large external space. In a hamlet but extremely private and very well priced.

Private gates open onto the large gardens, all of which are to the front of the property, very common for traditional Charentais houses.

A double garage, one with double height to house a camper van, are in front of you with the property to the left.

The grounds have a charming BBQ/summer kitchen wooden construction to make the most of our long hot summer evenings. With a petanque pitch to practise the local game, as well as a large orchard and fields. The current owners used some of them to house sheep.

Surrounded on two sides by open countryside with far reaching views, a small road behind and a neighbour to the forth side.

Entrance hall with pretty Elm staircase, to your left large KITCHEN with fitted cupboards, gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, space for a dining table.

To the right of the kitchen, also accessible from the garden or the rear corridor, is a SALON/DINING room, double aspect with a feature fire. This heats the house by the use of vents and can be topped up with the new generation intelligent electric radiators.

Accessible from the rear corridor and to the rear of the kitchen is the STUDY.

To the left of the entrance hall is a large 2nd SITTING ROOM or DINING ROOM, which benefits from the light of the large window, (former carriage entrance), again with its own fireplace. Two storage rooms (both with access to the water supply), and a second staircase. Allowing this space to be independent of the main home, if required.

From the main staircase and to your right is a corridor off of which you will find THREE DOUBLE BEDROOMS, two with ENSUITE SHOWER ROOMS, a DRESSING ROOM, FAMILY BATHROOM and separate WC.

To the left and accessible from the second staircase a large LIBRARY and TWO, further DOUBLE BEDROOMS.

The region:
The Charente/Charente Maritime areas are sat in a microclimate. We are the sunniest and warmest area in France outside of the Côte d’Azur. We benefit from the brightest skies in the country. However, we still have four distinct seasons and are only a 3 hr drive from the Pyrenees, if you wish to ski.
Cognac, Jarnac, Saintes and Chateauneuf have a lot of Roman influence with amphitheatres etc. Cognac is, of course, we’ll know due to the amber liquid which is growing in popularity year on year.
The area is known as “Spirit Valley” (production of all the internationally known Cognac brands as well as Pineau des Charentes, wines, Grey goose vodka, Grand Mariner and other spirits and liqueurs.
The largest producer, Hennessy, has just completed two new, large, buildings one to store their products another as a factory for attaching the labels to the bottles.
Unemployment is incredibly low for rural France due to the industry, as the barrels, bottles etc are all locally produced.
As a result of this, for a small town, Cognac and the area offer a lot of services and entertainment. An Olympic sized pool, sports centres, schools, conference facilities, bars and restaurants are all very high quality.
The historical centre has been maintained, with its cobbled streets and boutique shops, with a ring road around where you will find out of town shopping. Extremely popular with tourists.
Here are links to the tourist board and the Wikipedia description:-,_France
Again, due to industry, we are surrounded by vineyards. Vine growing land is more valuable than building land. So if these are your neighbours then they always will be.
The river Charente traverses the towns and lends itself to water sports, walks and riverside dining.
You will also see sweet corn and sunflower fields, the area produces the popcorn for the country.

You are well placed for transport. There are train stations in Cognac, Jarnac and Chateauneuf, all of which connect to Angouleme with the TGV and new fast track, (LGV), where you are able to reach Paris in 1h30.
La Rochelle and Bordeaux airports are within an hour and a quarter. Ryan air flies to Stansted, all year, from La Rochelle. Bordeaux is an international airport and an Easyjet hub. We flew to Barcelona from there recently.
The coast is an hour and fifteen away and the Pyrenees and Spanish border are 3.5 hours drive.
St Malo is a 4.5-5 hr drive with overnight, and daytime ferries to the U.K.

PROPERTY PRICES.:-The peak for prices was 2006, since which prices continued to drop until last year. This region was one of the first to begin to recover. Prices are predicted to rise, within the next few years, as the fast travel time for Paris will attract more second homeowners.
A lot of our clients organise their own itinerary which can lead to hours spent travelling around the French countryside getting, lost, hot and tired.
By allowing me to organise your itinerary we can ensure that you do not have any of these problems. I collect you from the hotel and drive you to properties allowing me to discuss the areas with you and you to sit back and enjoy the experience.
The maximum properties that I would advise you to view are six a day, otherwise, they all merge into one. I also, strongly, advise on a few days holiday, in between, viewings to relax and discover the area. Leaving the last day clear for second visits, to properties that you particularly like.

We at Leggett have a team in place to guide you through every part of the buying process and beyond to helping you with the utility contracts, recommending local builders, restaurants etc.
All you need to do is find a house that you like, everything else is taken care of for you. Our fees are included in the property price.
