From the house there are numerous walks through the woods which are adjacent to the house.Bikes are available upon request.
We bought the property whilst on holiday in the area.
Although only our second visit to the area we found the way of life, countryside and so close to the beaches irresistible. We have rented the house for over 12 years and have had several repeat visitors.
We have a large kitchen diner with a table that seats 6. The kitchen itself includes an oven/grill, microwave, hob, dishwasher and double sink. As well as plenty of cupboards and a very good utensil selection! We have a variety of glasses and crockery.
Leading out of the kitchen we have a large summer kitchen with an even bigger table that seats up to 8 people, this room has doors leading on to our beautiful veranda and covered seating area.
Chez Morin has a beautiful living room with a log burning stove. This includes 2 three seater sofas, a desk area and a tv which has basic English Freeview channels, as well as a dvd player.
Upstairs you will find 3 large bedrooms. The first master bedroom has a queen size bed and is overlooking the garden pool, fields and woods! The second has a king size bed and views over the hamlet. The third bedroom has a double bed and single bed and also overlooks the hamlet and front garden. All beds have mosquito nets.
The upstairs bathroom has just been redecorated. With a beautiful bath over looking the garden. Large shower and toilet.
We also have a shower, basin and toilet downstairs through the utility room.
Chez Morin has a large log burner in the lounge but also had central heating throughout.
We have a tv which has basic Freeview channels via Sky and a dvd player. In the kitchen is a cd player/stereo. We also have wi-fi at Chez Morin.
In thr summer kitchen is large cupboard with plenty of board games and jigsaws.
Chez Morin has a beautiful garden, this consists of a large pool area, which is completely fenced off and secure. Inside the pool area you will find a seating area and sun loungers.
The rest of the garden is laid to lawn, with plenty of room for games. We also have a table tennis table and bikes available upon request.
When entering the garden from the house you will find a veranda area with seating leading onto a covered patio with table and chairs.
There is a park area.
We purchased Chez Morin after spending several holidays in the area.<br/>The location close to beaches and the countryside persuaded us this was the place to spend are time when away from the UK.

Simply outstanding. The perfect, idyllic hide away from everyday life in beautiful, peaceful surroundings. This is the 2nd time we've been - no other holiday has ever matched the location, facilities and ability to recharge our batteries than Chez Morin. The house is lovely, with a genuine rural French farmhouse style. The grounds are well sized for the kids to run around and play in (and be securely enclosed in). Different dining areas around the property to eat wherever you feel like. An excellent, private, securely locked and clean pool (with lights!). The property is not overlooked, feels private and has gorgeous views of the landscape vista and is positioned perfectly for watching the sunsets. Excellent family restaurant in local Clion, a 2 minute drive away. Plenty of local Boulanger/Patisseries (again, a shot drive) and everything you need from Jonzac, about 15 mins away. Go to the food market/festival on Wednesdays to try amazing local produce and be entertained by the band. If you cycle - take your bike. I spent hours cycling round the endless, lazy villages - where locals will nod/wave as you pass. Be warned though - you'll be stopping every few minutes to take a photo! Graham and Karen could not be more helpful - just next door if needed (and will help right away), but leaving you well alone to your temporary home. Our family cannot recommend enough. We will definitely be back again to this wee haven...
It was great to see you and your lovely family again and a big thank for looking after the house and leaving so clean and tidy.so nice to see your parents again also.
Your comments made us feel so warm inside and make all the work and effort we put into the house worthwhile.
Really hope to see you here again one day
Karen and Graham
