Downstairs wc with wash basin. The house is 5 minutes walk from supermarkets, bakers, butchers, bars, restaurants, the canoe club and tourist centre. The canoe club hires canoes and bicycles and runs special sessions for children each weekday morning during the holidays and is good for all ages. Anyone can go on the evening "descent of the Charente" by canoe, followed by a communal supper, which I can thoroughly recommend. Garden croquet and badminton are set out in the garden, or sit and watch red squirrels eat hazelnuts.

Location description from owner

The Poitou-Charentes region

The Charente is described as the second sunniest part of France after the Cote d'Azur. The department takes its name from the meandering River Charente which wends across the region. The nearest large town is Angouleme, renowned for the cartoons which festoon many of the walls and city ramparts. Here you find the lively market, chocolatiers and high class restaurants (wagyu beef included) as well as a range of eating places to suit all pockets and tastes.La Rochefoucauld with its magnificent chateau where visitors can try on clothes from a bygone elegant age is situated on the River Bonnieure. Visitors also appreciate the many niche boutiques in the town.Cognac is perhaps self-explanatory, and worth visiting for a memorable river trip as well as sampling the famous brandy, and learning how it is produced.The delightful town of Royan has two beaches, one long and the other in a bay which therefore has a cosy feel. Other resorts are located along the coast, all with their different characteristics. la Rochelle is well known, and Fort Bouyard floats near the coast at that point.

Mansle

The River Charente, which borders the property, is a slow river which you can often cross three or four times in a short journey as it makes its way to the sea. The undulating countryside is ideal for cycling with many signposted cycle tracks traversing the typical sunflower fields and regularly located villages with local bakers and bars.Licheres is close by with the passenger-powered ferry (pull a rope!) which lands you on the opposite bank and further woodland walks or bike rides.The town of Mansle has several restaurants, each with different specialities - for example beef, fish or pizza - all cater for vegetarians.Innumerable chateaux are to be found within a few miles, the Chateau de Rochefoucauld is particularly impressive, with its neighbouring restaurant and chocolate factory. Also well worth visiting are the chateaux at Verteuil and Bayers, among many others.As well as fishing from the river bank which is private to the property there are a number of trout lakes locally where a day licence may be purchased. The local trout fishing lake is regularly stocked and five minutes walk from the house.Further afield is the unique Futuroscope, the Valley of the monkeys, Oradour sur Glane where German soldiers slaughtered almost the entire population, which has been kept as it as left as a reminder to all who visit.

“Great place for a lovely holiday.”

Reviewed 21 Dec 2013

Hi, we stayed at the Maison and Apartment in August 2013. Both properties were fantastic and the outside pool, gardens and riverside were beautiful. The property is based in a lovely little town with supermarket and town centre within easy walking distance. We also hired bikes and canoe's I would highly recommend this property to anyone

I am so pleased you enjoyed your holiday in the apartment and that you made good use of the pool, the garden and walks to the local town.
