Hello our names are Dave and Maxine we moved from the UK to France 17 years ago for a more relaxing lifestyle. When we first brought our property it was a run down farmhouse that was used to produce local wines and cognac, over the years we have now transformed it into a warm and welcoming home and holiday home.
|Year property purchased||2002|
|Why this location?||After many exciting and interesting holidays exploring most of France we decided to choose the Charante Maritime area due to it's renowned micro climate and beautiful countryside, within striking distance of the coast.|
|Unique benefits of property||Our property is in a very peaceful hamlet, surrounded by vineyards and sunflowers.
The property is central to Cognac and Saintes which we find convenient for shopping and evening meals out.
Our village Migron is a 2 minute drive away and has a bakers, butchers, Post Office, hairdressers and small supermarket.
The closest beaches are in Royan which is a 40 minute drive. Others include La Rochelle, Rochefort and Ile d'Oleron all 1hr drive.
The beautiful Ile de Re, the Cote d'Azur of the Atlantic Coast is 1hr 20min drive.
In Cognac a 20 minute drive away there are some of the world famous Cognac distilleries to visit and taste.
There are many excellent restaurants to suit every budget in Cognac, Saintes and St Jean d'Angely.
The surrounding area is excellent for cycling, miles of flat countryside with virtually no traffic, through villages, vineyards and fields of sunflowers.
Other activities include visiting Chateaux's, museums, walking and fishing.
Must to visit is the old Roman town of Saintes.
It has 2 cathedrals a Roman ampitheatre, river trips and boat hire, museums and great restuarants.
