Updated: 07-Oct-2016
House in St Thomas de Conac, Charente Maritime - Peaceful Location, Close To Gironde Estuary And Short Drive To Award Winning Beaches

This beautiful house has been lovingly restored by French craftsmen to combine the charm of yesteryear with the everyday practicalities of modern living. The kitchen and bathrooms are all new. The house is furnished with a mix of antiques and modern, creating a mellow, comfortable ambiance. The secluded pool is fenced off from the rest of the large garden. Le Petit Manoir is perfectly positioned in a tiny, peaceful hamlet of just 4 houses yet within a bike ride of the boulangerie for the essential morning croissants! Wifi, sat TV etc.

From the Owner

Fabulously secluded, the house has an aura of calm and yet is only a short drive from award winning beaches. The area is a haven for wildlife and is close to the Gironde Estuary with its rare species.
