For sale is our lovely holiday home situated on the outskirts of a small village in the heart of the French countryside of Charente-Maritime.
We have owned the cottage since 2004 and, although a holiday home, we have added significant improvements to provide a most comfortable and pleasing ambiance.
The front entrance leads to the grand sejour of 50 sq metres, including the open-plan kitchen and dining area. In addition to the oil central heating there is a large wood-burning stove.
Beyond is the "garden room" or second lounge/dining room, leading to the rear garden. We use this as a third bedroom, there being a day bed in situ.
Downstairs there is a bedroom and separate bathroom/shower/toilet.
Upstairs there is a second bedroom with its own separate shower and toilet and is really a separate sleeping apartment which is ideal for guests.
Part of the upstairs area is currently used for storage, but there is a corridor, giving access to the upstairs "apartment", with two doors leading off, and is ready to be converted to two further double bedrooms.
At the rear of the cottage is a private and enclosed garden, while at the front there is parking for two cars and a small garden.
There is an integral garage/work room of about 50 sq metres.
For those looking for a holiday home the cottage is very popular on French Locations and when we do not spend time there is never short of tenants.
There is also the opportunity to acquire the cottage with furnishings.
The cottage is located within easy access to the towns of Surgeres, St Jean d'Angely, La Rochelle, Rochefort, Saintes, Cognac and Bordeaux. It is situated within easy reach of the beautiful Atlantic resorts of Fouras, Ile de Re and Ile d'Oleron.
