About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Alison Sacco

My partner and I moved to this area from the UK because we wanted a total lifestyle change. Living in France had been a dream for many years.We are very happy that we moved to such a beautiful and peaceful area of France to run our gites.

Year property purchased 2019
Why this location? La Charente, and this area in particular is extremely beautiful, with open countryside and quiet little lanes that lead you to unexpected bars and restaurants. The views are spectacular and life carries on around you in a very laid back fashion. Although quiet, this gite is situated reasonably close to the lakes, shops, bars, restaurants and activities so is ideal to suit all visitors. Montemboeuf village which is only about 1 km away has all the essential shops and is within walking distance of the gite.
Unique benefits of property The gite has undergone a total refurbishment throughout and offers all the modern facilities needed for a family holiday. With its own private garden and swimming pool, it is ideal for families who want to spend time with their children just relaxing. The garden/patio area is ideal for those 'al fresco' evenings with a glass of wine or two!
The price quoted is for the hire of the whole gite so large families or groups will find that their holiday price per person is extremely reasonable. It's a very affordable holiday for both families and groups of friends.
