"LE GRAND BOIS", originally a cognac producing farmstead, has been tastefully converted into our home together with two gites and an enclosed swimming pool in our large wooded garden.

"LA VIEILLE ETABLE"has 6 bedrooms and sleeps up to 12 people and "LA PETITE GRANGE"with 1 bedroom sleeps up to 4.

"LE GRAND BOIS" was constructed around the 1850's as a small farm with outbuildings around a courtyard, with a well providing the water supply, a stone oven in which to bake the bread and stables for the farm animals. This has now been converted into our home , a large gite which can accomodate up to 12 persons and a small gite which sleeps 2 to 4 persons.

The gites have their own private entrance with parking for up to six cars. The bread oven and well remain but we have built a 10 x 5 meter swimming pool in the garden for the exclusive use of our clients. The garden has lots of fruit trees and nut trees and plenty of space to disappear with a glass of wine and a book.

At "Le Grand Bois" you can enjoy a peaceful,stress-free holiday beside the swimming pool or you can use the superb facilities to explore the many attractions and places of interest offered by the south-west region of France.

The Charente is still also a great place to buy your own holiday home. If you are considering this, with our experience and Ians' architectural expertise, as well as a great holiday, we can offer lots of useful information and contacts .

The small gite is ideal as a base for house hunting or exploring.

Whatever your reasons for visiting, you will be made very welcome at" Le Grand Bois" !!
