About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Isabel Evans

My husband and I moved to this area from the UK because we wanted a total lifestyle change. We are very happy that we moved to such a beautiful and peaceful area of France to run our gites.

Year property purchased 2014
Why this location? We have travelled a lot in France before deciding where to buy a property. La Charente, in our opinion, is one of the most beautiful areas in the country, with lovely peaceful countryside and a laid back lifestyle. Many old traditions remain unchanged in this area and it's the perfect place to unwind and soak up the French way of life. Not only do we have beautiful countryside, but we also have the Lakes of La Haute Charente close by, wonderful local markets, restaurants, a golf course, horse riding and much, much more. Angouleme is about 25 minutes drive away for shopping. The coast is about a two hours drive away, as are the mountains for skiing.
Unique benefits of property La Grange Souris has recently been totally refurbished throughout and offers holiday makers the perfect base to stay and to explore the local area. It has a fully equipped kitchen, an open plan lounge/diner, 4 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms. There is a new flat screen tv dvd and wi-fi connection. The property offers total privacy with its own front door and garden as well as a private rear garden with private pool. The gite lends itself to accommodating a couple on their own or a much larger family or group wishing to share. The beauty of this property is that the rental price is for the hire of the gite regardless of occupants, which makes it a very reasonably priced holiday for everyone. The property and location are ideal for a quiet relaxing holiday, but you are not too far away from lots of activities, historical site and shops. There is plenty to do for children with an adventure park close by, parks, water sports etc.
