Beautiful Home With Indoor Pool And Luxury Interior Near St Jean D'Angely

Overview

Property

Updated: 19-Aug-2016
House in Torxe, Nr. Saint Jean D'Angely, Charente, Poitou Charentes, France - Peaceful Location Only 10 Minutes From Local Market Town

Set in the heart of the Boutonne Valley and within walking distance from the River Boutonne, is our lovely home, Les Mirabelles, which we offer for rent from June until October. The house has a heated indoor pool, four bedrooms all with their own bathrooms and a huge well equipped modern kitchen and a games room with a pool table. Having recently been renovated and re-decorated you can be assured that there will be no compromise on style. The heated indoor pool is floodlit in the evenings and has a child security alarm. The pool area forms part of the lounge, a huge 72sqm in all. The kitchen/dining room has large areas of work space and has everything from a juicer and spice grinder to the more essential electric whisk and food processor! There are three terraces wrapped around the house and a huge lawn with paddling pool and American style BBQ and table tennis table.

Lovingly kept holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Les Mirabelles was wonderful. We met Anna on arrival who was very warm and welcoming. She had made delicious canapes for us and put champagne, wine, juice and milk ready for us in the fridge - what a lovely surprise!

The whole house is tastefully decorated; the beds were comfortable and were changed mid week for us.

The children made great use of the pool and stayed in there forever!

The kitchen is enormous and has every kind of kitchen utensil you could think of - and sharp knives (which are rare on holiday lets). We were all able to help with the cooking prep without getting in each others way.

The garden is large and tranquil with loads of seating, a pool table and table tennis table.

The house is located near a town (St Jean D'Angely) and is good for visiting several beaches, a fantastic zoo in La Palmyre, La Rochelle, Cognac and lovely bike rides along the river.

We had a small problem with the upstairs shower and Tony came over immediately and fixed it - brilliant.

Overall we had a fantastic two weeks (glorious weather) in a beautiful house owned by lovely people, Anna and Tony - Thank you

Gorgeous house for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family (6 in total) for 9 days at the end of July.

All email communication between me and the owners, Anna and Tony was clear and answered promptly.

Upon arrival Anna was there to greet us - and show us the house and gardens. Anna had prepared home made canapes for us and left two bottles of wine and a bottle of champagne. This was perfect - as after such a long drive we had no desire to drive anywhere else that evening.

The house is in a small, peaceful hamlet. The closest town is St Jean D'Angely which is about 9 miles away - not too far at all.

We all had a very comfortable stay at Les Mirabelles. Three of the bedrooms were en-suite, the fourth having its own bathroom just down stairs. I slept very well - the bed was extremely comfortable.

The kitchen is huge. Quite a treat to cook in - especially when there is more than one cook. Everything was provided to make preparing a meal simple. I was very envious of that kitchen!!

The lounge area was spacious and relaxing.

The swimming pool is indoors - at the far end of the lounge. It was quite large enough to swim in - and had underwater lighting - a nice feature in the evening.

Outside was fantastic and large enough for us all to spread out if we wished. Sunloungers galore, a couple of seating areas, bbq, pool table(very popular) and table tennis!

Overall we had a wonderful, relaxing stay. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys holidaying in a comfortable home in a peaceful location.
