About the Owner
We moved to this lovely village 20 years ago and certainly have no regrets. We both work in the area and are well integrated in the community, Linda is even a local councillor! We love following the seasons with the changes in the vineyard and harvesting is always an exciting time with some lovely, intoxicating aromas.

From the Owner
“The Charente has the second-highest number of hours of sunshine after the south of France, so there is ample opportunity for you to just relax in the peace and quiet of our courtyard and enjoy a glass of wine, either with a meal or sunbathing on a lounger. If you want to be more energetic, golf, horse-riding and canoeing are some of the sports available. The Atlantic coast is an hour away or if you prefer there are several lovely spots where you can sit by the river Charente and also go for a swim.”
