Our cottage "Rossignol" is part of a recently restored farmhouse set in a 35 acre farm with the river Boutonne passing through it. Situated in a small hamlet, it offers very comfortable and child friendly accommodation for up to 8 people.
"Rossignol" adjoins our other cottage "Chardonneret'' and they can be hired together for larger groups of up to around 14 people.
There is free wi-fi access and satellite tv (UK terrestrial stations).
Downstairs is a wheelchair-friendly twin en suite bedroom (popular with grandparents!). This room is also adapted for visually impaired guests.
The other 3 double/twin bedrooms upstairs are all en suite.
A 12 x 6m secure heated swimming pool is shared with our other adjoining cottage.
There is a gamesroom in a converted barn and swings with a sandpit by the lawn.
Both cottages are located on our 35 acre property, by the river "Boutonne", in a peaceful rural environment.
We have a boat which is well appreciated by bird and nature watchers. (The kids love it too!)
The sky at night, free from light pollution, is wonderful for star and satellite observers!
