About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Deborah Smith

We moved to France in 2005 with our 2 girls and haven't looked back. The girls both went into mainstream school and Garry and I renovated our farm house where we have lived for the last 10 years renovating the gite too, just opposite.

Year property purchased 2004
Why this location? Peaceful in the heart of the Charentais countryside, but within easy reach of Limoges airport only 30 mins away. Surrounded by the fields of working farms from sunflowers to cows, fantastic. The river Vienne is only minutes walk away where fishing is available and Chabanais our nearest market town within a 15 minutes walk, with all the amenities, supermarkets, butchers, boulangeries, banks, market every week. Only 20 minutes away are the lacs de haute Charente, where you can find swimming, sailing, wind surfing, horse riding and plenty of great walks.
Unique benefits of property Old barn renovated to the highest standard, beautiful views, swimming pool and fabulous terrace with bbq and very large fenced private garden.
Large well equipped kitchen, leading into dining room with seating for 8 which in turn leads into large sitting room with tv and dvd.
With 2 large bedrooms upstairs one with en suite, making this a fabulous place to stay for any amount of weeks.

The Owner Recommends

Le Vieux Moulin

Great restaurant in Chabanais, about 30 € per head, not cheap, but well worth it.

Auberge Romaine

Great little auberge in Chassenon.
Sell very good local beer, food limited but good.

Lacs de Haute Charente

Located just outside Presignac, about 15 mins from Les Rossignols.
Good beach and lifeguard in summer, good for swimming, wind surfing, sailing, horse riding.
Great beach bar, beach 16, open all summer, all day for drinks ,food and entertainment.

Piegut Market

Wednesday mornings, bit of a drive about 30 mins, but fabulous French market.


A town to be visited, especially if you are a cognac lover, go to the cognac houses for a great experience. There are many to choose from, Hennessey one of our favorites together with Courvoisier, found in Jarnac just outside Cognac.


You can make this a day or 1/2 day trip.
Walk round the old town and experience good French restaurants and bars. Angouleme has good shopping if you wish too.


Ancient city with lots to see and do. Fabulous restaurants and great markets. Great for just walking around. Covered market , selling everything. Porcelaine museum, a must see.
Great little train in the summer.
Golf , fantastic aquatic centre


Known as the prettiest village in the Charente. Underground church,must be seen
On route you will pass many caves to be explored.
Doesn't really wake up until about 11.00 , just in time for lunch, when its buzzing.
