Due to the size of the property, it would also make a bright and sunny, large bungalow, for very little conversion costs.

WEATHER:
The Charente/Charente Maritime areas are sat in a micro climate. We are the sunniest and warmest area in France outside of the Côte d’Azur. We benefit from the brightest skies in the country.

THE AREA:-
Cognac, Jarnac, Saintes and Chateauneuf have a lot of Roman influence with amphitheatres etc. Cognac is, of course, well 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 rands as well as Pineau des Charentes, wines, Greygoose 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.

Due to this, for a small town, Cognac and the area offer a lot of services and entertainment. An olympic sized pool is about to be completed. 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.

SCENERY:
Again, due to industry, we are surrounded by vineyards. Vine growing land being 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.

GEOGRAPHIC PLACEMENT:-
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 fly 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.
Having said that the area is, in general, less expensive than Dordogne, due to its popularity with Brits, the Dordogne prices have been inflated.

THE VIEWING TRIP:-
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.

THE PURCHASE PROCESS:-
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.
