About the property

Farmhouse in Auvignac, Charente Maritime, Poitou-Charentes, France - Tranquil Village Setting, Close To Cognac And Only 40 Min Drive To Amazing Beaches

The house is situated in a tranquil position in the quiet village of Auvignac. This small village, in the Charentes-Maritime region, is surrounded by vineyards and fields of sunflowers throughout the summer months. The house is extremely spacious, with over 4,000 sq ft of accommodation, and is furnished in a contemporary style. The house will comfortably accommodate 13 people in 6 bedrooms, with a sofabed and cots available. The sunny south facing garden is fully enclosed and the heated pool is securely fenced. It is an ideal house for 2 or 3 families holidaying together. Whether you want peace and quiet, or a very active holiday, the area can provide both.

Wonderful house for priceless family holiday

  • 5 of 5

An amazing house, a dream property with all the facilities you could wish for...and more! We were a party of 11 ranging from 10 months to 85 years and there was room for all to have time together yet keep some privacy( important for the 85 year old). 3 fridges mean that you can stock up drinks and food for a few days. The children loved the pool which was well maintained with a quick response from the charming maintainance person when the pump stopped. The area is wonderful, typically French, with easy access to a range of activities. Wonderful memories for us all. Thanks Kirsten

Just wonderful....

  • 5 of 5

We were are a party of six adults and six children, ranging from 20 months to nine years, and everyone had a blast! The pool was warm and inviting and maintained once a week. The property was like a home from home. Everything was thought about from swim towels, pool toys, kitchen utensils, condiments, you name it, it was there.

The property was extremely spacious which meant you could hide away if you needed some peace and quiet. It was clean, plenty of bathrooms, and well maintained.

The area is peaceful but there is lots to do within an hours drive including the beach, cognac houses, pons, Saintes....

We had the most wonderful holiday, the first time abroad with all four of our kids (4 under 5!!!)

Thank you Kirsten xxxx

Can't recommend it enough!

Fabulous house in a sleepy setting!

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is in the sleepy hamlet of Auvignac. Only a short drive to the nearest village of Montils for boulengerie and a general food store. Supermarkets in nearby Pons. The house is huge and easily accommodated our party of 10 adults and 4 children under 3!! The kitchen is superbly well equipped - it lacked nothing! Pool is fantastic and we made full use of it! An excellent house and a holiday enjoyed by all!!

Couldn't Want For More!

  • 5 of 5

I have been completely charmed by the peaceful, friendly village of Auvignac, where this beautiful house is located. We were a group of 12 and there was plenty of space for all of us to relax. The house is very well equipped and does not leave you wanting for anything. We explored Pons, Saintes and Cognac which are all worth seeing as is the pretty river that is about a minutes walk from the house itself. The beach at Saint-Georges-De-Didonne is about a 40 minute drive but definitely worth it - the sand is glorious! Had a thoroughly lovely time and would love to stay again. Highly recommended.

The quick version - we didn't want to come home.

Slightly longer version - this is a beautiful property in a blissfully peaceful location. The house is very well appointed with good sized rooms - the lounge and dining area is spectacular - with all the facilities you'd expect and more. There were 12 of us in 3 families (children aged 4 to 13) and we never felt in each other's way. We spent a couple of lazy days just around the house - swimming in the large pool or exploring the village by foot and bike.

There is plenty to do in the area and we felt that we'd only scratched the surface. Both local towns - Pons and Saintes - are fun to explore and the enticingly named 'Chateau des Enigmes' was fun for the kids with us all being declared official musketeers by a Russian accented tour guide at the end of our visit!

Cognac was also an interesting day trip although we would have been better organised to find out when the English tours of the Chateau de Cognac were as we had been hoping to do one but we missed it. The Hennesey your was good value though. Further afield we spent a couple of lovely days at Saint-Georges-De-Didonne just messing about on the beautiful sandy beach.

Would we go back - yes I think so.
