Set in a peaceful hillside hamlet, surrounded by glorious countryside, this very ancient stone-built 4-bed cottage is a much-loved holiday home owned by the same family for the last 25 years. It has all the traditional features: exposed beams, fireplace fitted with woodburner, exposed stonework to some of the walls, small windows on the first floor to keep the heat out in summer. Renovated for comfort and without pretention, the house offers practical and spacious living accommodation in the two main rooms on the ground floor. On the first floor, reached by simple wooden stairs, the 4 bedrooms are divided into two parts, each part with two bedrooms and a shower room. This ensures privacy for guests or for family use. Useful features include a covered terrace next to the kitchen, perfect for dining out of the sun and fitted with lighting for evening use an attractive period hangar which can be used for garaging, entertaining or as a covered games area and concrete sun terraces to the front of the house. From both the house and the grounds of over an acre, the views are superb. Sold fully-furnished and equipped, the house is ready to enjoy straight away as a characterful holiday home, or for seasonal letting. Just bring your suitcases! The discreet presence of year-round neighbours in the hamlet brings a sense of security, and grounds maintenance is assured. For year-round use, the buyer may wish to upgrade some interior features, and to improve the vehicle access which is fine in the dry summer months but could be slippery in the winter due to the slope of the land. The South Charente is rich in rolling, unspoilt countryside, dotted with lively market towns and hilltop villages, marked-out rambling, cycling and riding circuits, and designated swimming beaches on rivers or lakes such as the popular Etang Vallier, only 5 miles from this property. The wide sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean are just over 1 hour by car, as is the historic and cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux, designated as a Unesco World Heritage site.
