Our Charentais farmhouse enjoys generous room sizes and high ceilings. It is fully refurbished to a high standard with design led décor yet retaining many original features - fireplaces, stone and exposed oak beams. The new contemporary kitchen complete with range cooker is ideal for creating feasts to be enjoyed at the large dining table with seating for all to relax and socialise. Close off the outside world in the elegant lounge with choice of comfy chairs; enjoy a book, magazine or DVD from the extensive library. Head for the games room which opens onto the garden, complete with snooker table, another DVD player, Wii console, table football and much more. Upstairs you will find 3 bright and spacious bedrooms; soak in the luxury free-standing bath in the master or use one of the 2 walk-in showers. There is a separate bedroom downstairs with en-suite, own terrace, entrance and sofa for extra peace and quiet. Take advantage of the sunny climate in the tranquil gardens with private swimming pool and stunning views; breakfast on the terrace, laze in the hammock with a glass of local wine, or stroll to the courtyard for a game of Pétanque in the late afternoon sun while the BBQ sizzles. The property is perfect to just drop your suitcase and relax. The local towns of Blanzac and Montmoreau provide all you need for stocking the kitchen and drinks cupboard, as well as numerous cafes and restaurants. The house is well situated to explore the beautiful towns of Aubeterre, Angouleme and Cognac; as well as being near to several golf courses, the lakes of Brossac with their many sporting activities, or the stunning beaches of the Atlantic.

Further details outdoors

The house is set in one acre mature sloping gardens with expansive views over unspoilt French farmland. It is planted with numerous fruit trees, including figs, cherry, walnut, apples, plum, pears, quince and several vines. A hammock is slung in dappled shade to enjoy the tranquility.

The large swimming pool (10x5m) is situated to take maximum advantage of the Charente sunshine and views. Soak up the sun on one of the loungers, or enjoy splashing about with some of the toys provided!

A sheltered courtyard surrounded by ancient barns is the perfect setting for a game of Petanque in the evening sun. Whilst a raised terrace immediately in front of the house is the perfect spot for breakfast in the sunshine at the large teak table, which seats 8 comfortably.

A separate seating area and BBQ is situated next to a huge weeping willow tree, providing shade.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

There are weekly markets throughout the region along with antique fairs.

Brossac Lakes are a scenic 18km drive away and offer extensive water sports, cycling, mini golf and horse riding. With restaurants on site it makes a great family day out.

Aubeterre-sur-Drone (30 mins drive) is one of the 9 most beautiful villages in France and is home to Europe's largest underground monolithic Church.

Angouleme (30 min drive) is a handsome town high above the river. It hosts the famous annual comic festival and Circuit des Remparts for classic car lovers.

Cognac (50 min drive) is a must to sample Eau de Vie.

If you enjoy visiting pretty villages, grand Chateau or old churches you are spoilt for choice.

The rugged Atlantic coastline is around a 1hr 30 drive. Royan benefits from a micro climate on a par with the Mediterranean coast and you can enjoy many beaches. Great restaurants are plentiful, the local specialty is fresh Oysters. Fashionable Ile de Re and the stunning harbour of La Rochelle complete this area of coastline.


Blanzac-Porcheresse at 5km offers a selection of local shops, including several Boulangerie, Patisserie, Butchers, bank, several small local bars and cafes, and if needed a supermarket. It holds a weekly market.

Montmoreau-St-Cybard at 8km has a number of restaurants and bars alongside a large supermarket, local shops, bank, pharmacy, hair salon and florist. There is daily car/motorbike rental available from the supermarket. Just behind the shop you will find the train stop for Angouleme!

Our local restaurant in Nonac is very friendly and offers a tasty and great value Plat de Jour. It is a 20 minute stroll, about 2km. Lunch is the perfect time to observe the locals in their element!

If you would like a celebratory meal in the house or garden we can book an excellent caterer, with notice of course.

We can also recommend local wine, cognac and foie gras producers. Of course, a visit to Cognac is a must to sample Eau de Vie.

The beauty of the location are the endless opportunities on your doorstep for walking, a morning run or late afternoon cycle. Bicycles are available.

"Wonderful place to get away from it all!"

"Beautiful home, in a fantastic setting, perfect holiday."

We stayed at Chez Foucherie in Sept 2013 with our 14 month old son. The house is finished to a beautiful standard and is equipped with everything you could possibly think of. The master bedroom was my favourite, lying in the bath with a glass of local red made my holiday! All the rooms were very clean and the linen was an excellant standard
The surrounding area is stunning and you can easily spend the day relaxing at the pool watching the rolling hills beyond or venture into the surrounding towns and villages and sample authentic french life.
I can not recommend Chez Fourcherie highly enough, Rebecca and Chris responded quickly to our enquiry and had a good knowledge of the area.
We will be returning next year.
