Our property is in a very peaceful village, surrounded by vineyards and sunflowers. The famous town of Cognac with its distilleries (Remy Martin, Hennessy, Martell, Otard) is just a short drive away.

Within easy reach are the towns of Saintes, St Jean d'Angely and Angouleme which we also find convenient for shops and meals out.
We are a 10 minute drive away from the town of Matha which has bakers, butchers, chemists, Post Office, banks, restaurants, hairdressers etc. and several supermarkets.

The space
Beautiful newly converted 19th century barrel house, originally built to store the barrels of cognac once made on the property.
The barn is of Charantais stone, as is our adjacent home, and in a tranquil village setting. The gite has its own private enclosed garden laid to lawn with flower beds.

Kitchen and dining

The kitchen includes a fridge with freezer compartment, gas hob, oven, microwave, kettle and toaster. Well equiped with pots and pans, china and cutlery. The china is kept on a lovely old dresser.
The dining table will seat two/four.

A limited stock of useful items is provided including tea, coffee, milk, sugar, salt, pepper, oil, herbs, washing up liquid and cloths.

There is cleaning equipment under the sink. There are also tea towels and hand towels as well as some foil, kitchen paper and cling film.

We ask that you replace anything you finish. Thank you.

Plenty of maps, guide books, games etc.

Bedroom

The bedroom area has a double bed (140cm wide) with cotton bed linen including antique pillow cases. The duvet and pillows have synthetic fillings, both for their anti-allergy properties and so that they can be laundered regularly.

Situated in the little village of Louzignac, our gite is on the village square close to a pretty 11th century church. A five minute stroll from rolling countryside we are ideally placed for walkers, hikers and cyclists. A short drive will take you to wine producers, cognac distilleries, a mustard producer, and the market towns of Matha and Rouillac.

The historic towns of St Jean d'Angely, Cognac and Saintes are only a 20-30 min drive away.

The nearest beaches are at Royan, a 60 minute drive.
