About the property

Double room in Saint-Avit, a pretty French hamlet, just 3km from Chalais and 15 minutes from Aubeterre's restaurants/bars

Our property is a 200 year old Charentais style dwelling with beautiful views over countryside. It is situated in a small French hamlet, opposite an 11th century Roman church. It is an ideal quiet and relaxing retreat for couples. Guests can relax on site or take advantage of the many walks and cycling routes. (Free bikes are subject to availability)

We are situated close to the Cognac and Bordeaux wine regions and there are many chateau and distillery visits available. This area is famous for Pineau, a local drink most often served chilled as an aperitif.

Local food specialities include duck and Charentais beef, with seasonal delights which include deliciously sweet Charentais melons and a large variety of mushrooms.

We are just a short distance from canoeing and kayaking centres and the popular tourist town of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne with its many restaurants/bars and famous for its monolithic Church carved out of the rock and one of just two of this type surviving in France - a must to see!

About Clive Allman

Les Hirondelles is run by Clive, from the South of England, and Margaret, originally from Ireland. We moved to France a couple of years ago from England and enjoy meeting people and introducing guests to our property. A recent addition in 2015 was our new double bedroom self catering gîte (also listed on Owners Direct).

Clive Allman purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Clive Allman chose Charente

A lovely rural location set in a hamlet with beautiful views, yet close to a market town with rail links to major city attractions. The popular town of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne is just 10 minutes from us, with its many restaurants and bars.

What makes this apartment unique

The view, the tranquility.
