PR676 La Forge

nr Brossac, Vendee Charente | Sleeps 16

Charming family villa near Cognac - Dating from the 16th century, this charming family villa was once the centre of a Cognac estate, now refurbished and converted into a beautiful, spacious home in unspoilt countryside with lovely views all around.

The house is elegantly furnished and retains some lovely features such as marble fireplaces, but still offers a very child-friendly environment including extensive grounds and an enclosed pool with covered games area for table tennis and an area for badminton.

Its position on a hillside in the southern Charente is perfect for touring the pretty towns, Romanesque churches and vineyards of the region. The nearby village of Brossac has local shops. Just 10 minutes away, Chalais and Barbezieux-St-Hilaire each have an impressive chateau and weekly markets. The Charente claims to have the most hours of sun in France, and the Atlantic coast has wonderful stretches of sandy beach. The beautiful town of Cognac is just 45 mins away, while the elegant port town of Bordeaux is only an hour's drive. La Rochelle, offering boat trips to the islands of Oléron and Ré, is less than 2 hours' drive from the villa.

I like this house with its double frontage and big rooms and its an ideal family house.  Nice big swimming pool enclosed by hedges means the children are safely within this area.  The caretakers are delightful and take great care ensuring all their guests leave having enjoyed a memorable holiday.  Great area for trying out the local Cognac and a good location for visiting the Dordogne as well as Bordeaux and the coast.
