“Wonderful property in beautiful Jarnac” On arrival at the property it was clear that it's beautiful features were as pictured, if not better. A picturesque maintained garden with the swimming pool at the centre, a tiny piece of paradise.
Really enjoyed our trip to maison dix Neuf. House is great. Modern downstairs with excellent kitchen. Upstairs full of traditional character. Huge master an suite bedroom. 2 further doubles, one is a mezzanine with low beam so be a bit careful but my son had no issues. We really enjoyed the outside space. Lovely pool with outdoor furniture and tropical garden. Not being a sun lover I enjoyed the summer house for reading in and the part shaded hammock. Jarnac is a lovely town, bit smaller than I thought but quaint. Be aware that a lot if shops close on Mondays as well as Sunday afternoon although the main supermarkets are open and only 5 mins drive. Property is very close to the river charente which is pretty and clean. We enjoyed a couple of sessions kayaking on it which has purpose built rapids for novices. Several cognac houses do tours. Courvoisier is the main one but you pay 9-17 euros for a tour. We did the Hine tour which is free and round the corner. You just need to ring or e mail to arrange. As it's free you can spend the money on the cognac! All in all an excellent holiday. Good communication from Philip the owner. We were met by the house keeper Tracy. She was very helpful. We rang her to get access slightly earlier. As we got there on a Sunday when shops closed she even offered us some of her shopping if we were struggling. If you want to go to this area they I would recommend staying here …
