About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Grant Miller

Grant and Jan - retired professionals, relocated to France to establish a new B&B and gîte business, which they are pleased to say has been an award-winning establishment for the last 4 years they have been open. They relocated to France for the lifestyle, climate, and quality of life. Grant and Jan chose the area of South-West France (Charente) as it offers exceptionally good transport links via motorway, rail and air. Both are keen walkers, cyclists and wine/cognac-drinkers!

Year property purchased 2014
Why this location? It is France's second warmest, sunniest region. It is within close proximity to 4 airports and 1 hour drive from the coast. It's in the heart of the Cognac region which is great for Cognac lovers/spirit enthusiasts if they want to sample the region's Pineau and Cognac products from local producers (both well-known large producers and smaller, local producers). The location with its quiet roads and beautiful scenery is an idyllic location for cyclists and runners. Each year in November Jarnac hosts the annual Cognac Marathon - a fantastic event for the amateur and semi-professional runner. For walkers, we are 3 minutes from the Charente River and various walking routes. The location is great for visitors to the famous motoring event known as Remparts, held in Angoûleme in September of every year as we are only a short drive or train ride away.
Unique benefits of property Our property is nestled amongst the Cognac vines giving peaceful, tranquil and beautiful views. Both gîtes are a large size (85 sqm), boasting 2 bedrooms, a large family bathroom with walk-in shower, spacious kitchenette, lounge area, and seated dining area. There is also an enclosed terrace to the rear of each gîte. Both gîtes benefit from the sole use of the outdoor, salt water 10m x 5m swimming pool. The beautiful enclosed garden has a wooden-framed play area for children. Everything is supplied (bed linen, towels) - all you could possibly need for a fantastic holiday/vacance!
