About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Talfryn Llewellyn

Talfryn and Shelley moved with their children from Suffolk in 2011 to the beautiful area of the Petite Champagne in the Charente Maritime.

Year property purchased 2011
Why this location? The stunning countryside of the Petite Champagne originally drew us to move the region. Reaux itself is peaceful and tranquil with lots of vineyards and fields of sunflowers but within easy reach of Bordeaux, Cognac, La Rochelle and the wonderful beaches. We love the warmer weather and the longer sunshine hours in the Charente Maritime.
Unique benefits of property La Distillerie is a lovely, open plan cottage with large modern kitchen. Upstairs the family bathroom has great views of the vines (from the bath) and the whole cottage is light and airy with plenty of space for a family. Outside it has its own seating area with bbq and parasol and great views looking up towards the main house. The heated guest swimming pool is open from May - Sept/Oct. The village is within easy walking distance and has a bar and daily delivery of baguettes and croissants (which can be ordered in advance).
