Why Hugues Le Monnier chose Charente

Although I live in Paris, I keep a special attachment to this house built by our family in 1744. It has not been inhabited for the last three generations but since my childhood it has been the magical setting of numerous holidays with a bunch of cousins. We lived it old style countryside with cows, crop and hand picking grape harvest. We now rent it to maintain and restore it off course, but also for the benefit of our tenants who will discover a place with unique charm.

Spacious living

  • 4 of 5

The whole family enjoyed the holiday. The property provided lots of space for us all to join together or find to find a quiet spot. The grandchildren particularly enjoyed the garden, heading straight out each morning. The house is secluded but only a few minutes drive from Jarnac where we spent many happy hours both sitting in cafes or enjoying the canoes on the river. It is in a great spot from which to go exploring whether that be Cognac or Angouleme.

Thank you for allowing us to share what is clearly a family home.
