About the property

FR18136

Set in a quiet hamlet just outside the village of St Hilaire de Villefranche, our house is a wonderful location from which to explore the Charante Maritime region. Surrounded by fields of sunflowers and vines, it is perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday, while close to all the major local attractions. St Hilaire is less than 10 minutes walk away and has two boulangeries, a supermarket, a bank, etc. The beautiful medieval town of St Jean d'Angely is 10 minutes drive away, the large towns of Saintes and Cognac are 15 minutes away, and the coast is less than on hour's drive

Our farmhouse can be booked in two ways. In each case, a booking gives sole occupancy of our house and sole use of the pool / gardens.

Firstly, you can book either part of the house on a stand alone basis. Cadran Solaire ("The sundial") which is just over half of the house and has five bedrooms, two bathrooms, etc. Petits Chats ("Little Cats") which is slightly smaller and has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and so on. Our house is not rented on a shared basis, so a booking of one part of the house gives sole occupancy and the other part will not be booked out to other people.

Alternatively the entire house can be booked as a single property of nine bedrooms, four bathrooms, two lounges and kitchens, together with indoor and outdoor dining areas, the pool and garden.

For most of the year, Petits Chats may be booked on a stand alone basis, but during the high season, it may only be booked in conjunction with Cadran Solaire.

About Jonathan Riley

The property is owned by Jonathan and Linda who live in Oxfordshire, England and who travel to France as often as possible.

Jonathan Riley purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Jonathan Riley chose Saint-Jean-d'Angely area

The Charente Maritime is one of the most beautiful (and sunniest) areas of France, and provides such a wide variety of places to see and things to do.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Our house is within a short drive of all of the highlights in the Charente Maritime. There are historic towns and beautiful villages, rolling countryside covered with vines and sunflowers, beautiful beaches, even one of France's finest zoos

Needless to say, the food and drink is delicious, the markets are wonderful, everything about the area is fantastic!
