About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Rebecca Jackson

Rebecca is a teacher, specialising in French of course! Adrian works in manufacturing. We have three grown up children.

Year property purchased 2006
Why this location? We looked for a house in the Charente Maritime region as Rebecca had enjoyed many holidays there as a child and loved the area. We bought 3 Roussillon in 2006, when it was a complete wreck and hadn't been lived in for over 10 years, with the intention of gradually doing it up. We soon realised that if we did the work ourselves our children would be grown up before we'd finished! So we enlisted the help of some local artisans to restore the house. We love its peaceful location, the large windows and the backdrop of the chateau.
Unique benefits of property Our house has 4 en suite bath or shower rooms so it perfect for sharing. Downstairs is level and the downstairs wet room is suitable for people with mobility issues. The pool is very private and the courtyard is a gorgeous sun trap.

Pretty town with medieval keep and the Hopital des Pelerins with its herb and medicinal gardens where pilgrims would stay en route to Santiago de Compostella
