Why Elaine Gregory chose Mons

We brought this property and restored/built it to be a charming two bedroomed modern cottage, it has its own driveway and garden in a lovely quiet hamlet. The cottage is fresh and clean, with all you need. The area of the Charente is one of the best places in France and has alot to offer. It has some lovely walks, lakes to swim, and boating, there are markets, shops, towns and resturants, horse racing nights, ramparts, Coqnac houses, musical events and other events though the year. Near by is Futurescope and theme park Puy du Fou or great for relaxing or sight seeing. If you need to look around for house hunting we can help with this also as have friends as estate agents if need introduction.

What makes this cottage unique

There is a large indoor heated pool (in season) with Hot Tub.

The property has all modern equipment with sky freeview uk tv and French tv, a few dvds and radio, a bbq in the garden. We are in a quiet hamlet but easy to drive to many locations and makes a great base to come back too.

Comfortable gite in a peaceful area

  • 5 of 5

The gite was spacious, clean and very well maintained. The pool and spa area is brilliant and we loved the company of Cooper, the owner's beautiful and well-behaved Golden retriever dog. The owners were not intrusive in any way, but they were there if we needed anything and were very knowledgeable about the local area. Unfortunately, it rained for the vast majority of the week we were there, so we did not get as far afield as Bordeaux, as we had planned. But that could be a reason for returning in the future. We found Angeloueme a lovely town and for Cognac enthusiasts, the Cognac houses are worth a visit. We visited Hennessy at Cognac and found it very interesting. I think it was 17 or 18 euros for an adult and the tour is 1 1/2 hours. Staff are very knowledgeable about the product and we feel that the tour represented very good value for money, but don't just take our word for it! I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to friends or relatives.

Lovely chilled week

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was comfy and clean, kitchen utensils a little sparse but enough to get by. Pool fantastic and owners friendly and helpful. Could have done without the neighbour reversing into our car on the first day but all got sorted in the end

A Rural Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The location of the property at Villeneuve, Mons near Aigre was not easily found as there are detours within Aigre due to the construction of a bridge nearby. This is the first year that this cottage has been available for rent and the owners were extremely helpful in providing alternative routes in and out of the village. Set off the main road through this very quiet village, the cottage has been renovated to a high standard. It was a spacious, clean, light and very peaceful cottage within its own grounds. Maybe additional furniture in the lounge and bedrooms might make it more homely! The heating system was very effective when the weather got cold. Unfortunately it was the end of the season and the pool could not have been used if the weather had been hot. The rental price was fair and I would recommend this accommodation as a comfortable base from which to travel around the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and we have now put in more bedroom furniture, in future the pool will be able to be used in all weathers as being renovated to be undercover (indoor)

Très bon accueil mais manque de propreté

  • 3 of 5

Très bon accueil. La propriétaire était très sympa !!! Très belle maison, mais nous avons été déçus par le manque de propreté générale (vaisselle, canapé, meubles de cuisine, piscine.....)

Nous avons apprécié la tranquillité des lieux.

Une très belle région.

La Rochelle & Royan
Car: necessary


La Rochelle/ Royan beaches and small coves with great sandy beaches is approx one and half hours drive away which has an awesome zoo nearby and go karting with much more. On route you can find many old villages of interest.


Our nearest airport is Poitier/ La Rochelle or Limoges which you can hire a car. Or drive across the channel and drive down from Calais, Dieppe or Caen would take approx 7 hours from Calais and less from other ports. The other option is the train Euro to Paris or Lille then the TGV to Angouleme and again hire a car.


We are 4km from small village Aigre with restaurants and shops and bar and market days and 30 minutes drive to Angouleme, Jarnac or Cognac main towns, but we are in a great position in the Charente to get to many different places around for a days out.

Further Details:

There are many good resturants, local shops near by with banks/supermarket etc. In Angouleme the main town that is only approx 30 mins away by car, that has all you would need and more. Public outdoor pool near-by in Roullac also on 27th of each month a large market and also in Angouleme has a leisure centre with indoor and outdoor pool slides and waves in season. Ice skating in season and more There are many other villages about, and lakes to swim or boating, canoeing, historical places and Charente river with activities. The Cognac houses are famous and interesting to get the know how on the making of Cognac.
