The house comfortably sleeps eight adults in two large double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms.With one double bedroom and a bathroom located on the ground floor the house is suitable disabled people. The main living area is open-plan comprising a large fully equipped kitchen cum dining room as well as well as large living area.

Two sets of French doors lead onto a large tree shaded back terrace which is ideal for outdoor dining, barbeques or simply taking a respite from the midday sun. Meanwhile the 10X5 metre pool which is set in the foot print of an old barn, is the perfect place for a cooling plunge or simply soaking up the sun. There is also a boules playing area adjacent to the back terrace.

While many of our guests are more than happy to do nothing more strenuous than have a glass of wine while relaxing by the pool there is much to do for those more actively inclined. Golfers are well catered for with more than six courses within an hour and half's drive of the property and Golf d'Aubeterre (9 holes) only 10 minutes away. Tennis players are also well looked after with most villages having their own clubs which are more than willing to allow visitors access for a nominal fee. Canoeing, horse riding and fishing are all also available nearby.

Wine lovers will be kept very busy in the area. Less than an hour's drive will bring you to the home of some of France's most famous wine producing areas such as St Emilion ( a UNESCO World Hetitage Site since 1999), Lalande, Pomerol, and Fronsac. Spend an afternoon meandering through the beautiful Chateaux and vineyards of the region or the cobbled streets of St Emilion which must rank as one of the prettiest little towns in France. Meanwhile, the town of Cognac is also within an hour of the property.

No matter what your taste you will be well catered for by the many and varied restaurants in the locality.For that special evening dine at either the Chateau in Chalais or the Hostelerie du Perigord in Aubeterre both of which rank among the best restaurants in the region. There are also many other good family style restaurants in the area such as Le Domaine des Vignes in St Romain, Bistro des Halles in Montboyer, the St Bernard in nearby Brossac or La Taverne in Aubeterre.

Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

L'Anglade is a lovely old former cognac estate steeped in local history and tradition. So far the owners have been able to trace the history of the property back to the mid 1600's, though with further digging they are confident they will be able to trace back even further. Among the more illustrious previous owners of L'Anglade have been Dangiaud de L'Anglade, advocat to the Prince of Tallyrand and Lord of Perigord. More recently, Francis Ganivet Desgraviers, a famous French soldier was born on the property in 1768. In later life Degraviers went on to become a famous and muchdecorated General in the Army before retiring in 1807 to get married.

According to the history books, his new wife proved to be something of a heartscald which prompted Degraviers to leave the matrimonial home after just two years of marriage and rejoin the army. Alas, his second term in the army proved to be nearly as shortlived as his marriage with Degraviers being fatally injured at the battle of Arapiles, Salamanca in 1812.

Today the property, which is set in over three acres of mature wooded and landscaped gardens comprises of four dwellings - the main house (which is owner occupied), a caretakers cottage and two beautifully renovated holiday homes, Villa Anglade and La Petite Anglade.

Montboyer

Whether you are looking for a peaceful relaxing time lounging by the pool amidst beautiful rolling countryside or you are looking for a more active holiday, Langlade is sure to meet your every need. Situated in the heart of Charente, close to the borders of Dordogne and Charente-Maritime, there arLocally

The village of Montboyer, situated approximately 1km away, is a typical small French village. It has a post office, a garage but few other facilities. Luckily, the market town of Chalais, with its supermarket, shops, bars and restaurants, is oly a five minute drive from the property.

The village is fortunate to have a very active and hard working Committee des Fetes. Each year the committee organise around a dozen functions spread throughout the year, but predominantly in summer. These range from local farmer markets, dinners, fairs and country side walks/picnics. Despite their diverse nature all of these events have a common denominating factor. This is, to put it in plain language - food and drink! Should you be fortunate enough for your visit to coincide with one of these local soirees be sure to attend!. You are guaranteed to be warmly welcomed, have a great time whilst at the same time experiencing a true taste of French rural life.

The market town of Chalais is 7km away. It has a good sized super market - Intermarche - for more extensive shopping requirements as well as most other type of shop including pharmacies, butchers, bakers, cake shops banks, cash points etc. In addition, if you are unfortunate to need them you will find doctors dentists and physiotherapists not to mention several watering holes (the best of which are Le Flore and the PMU).e a host of activities nearby

No matter what your taste you will be well catered for by the many and varied restaurants in the locality. These range from gourmet style restaurants offering food of the highest quality down to small family run bars/restaurants offering more traditional local fare. All of these restaurants have one thing in common: within their class, all offer quality food at remarkably reasonable prices. Typical prices (without wine) range from around €30 (£25) for a four or five course meal in one of the better restaurants to around €12 to €15 (£9/£12) in a family style restaurant.

For that special evening eat at either the Chateau in Chalais or the Hostelerie du Perigord in Aubeterre both of which rank among the best restaurants in the region. The Hostelerie du Perigord arguably gets the nod for the complexity and presentation of its food though there is nothing to beat the ambiance of the Chateau with its simpler, though no less tasty, food presentation. Two other very good restaurants locally are Le Domaine des Vignes and Le Brasserie both of which are located in St. Romain which is about a 10 minutes drive from Langlade

There are many other good family style restaurants in the area such as the Champ Rose, Le Passe Simple or the St Bernard in nearby Brossac. For a quick, tasty, no frills style meal try Le Flore or the the PMU in Chalais both of which have limited but tasty grill style menus. Alternatively, if you would like to try real French country fare, enjoy a five course set lunch at Chez Martine in St Martial for around €12. Country cooking and local character at its best! An equally good bet is the restaurant at Bardenac, Le Poirier, which serves an excellent set luch menu featuring local specialities.

For the record specialities of the region include fois gras, canard and veau de Chalais.

Activities
While many of our guests are more than happy to do nothing more strenuous than have a glass of wine while relaxing by the pool there is much to do for those more actively inclined. Walking, jogging and cycling along the many wooded country roads in the locality have proved very popular with many of our guests (there are two bicycles and one kiddy's bicycle available for the use of guests)

Golfers are well catered for in the area over a dozen courses within an hour and and half of the property and Golf d'Aubeterre (9 holes) only 10 minutes away.

Tennis players are well looked after with most villages having their own clubs which are more than willing to allow visitors access for a nominal fee. The local club in Chalais has four courts (one indoor) and is no more than a five minute drive from the property. More serious players may wish to apply to the French Tennis Federation for a licence before coming on holidays. This will allow them to enter into the many local tournaments that are played in the area throughout the summer.
Canoeing, horse riding and fishing are all also available nearby.

Wine
The wine connoisseur will be kept very busy in the area. Less than an hours drive will bring you to the home of some of France's most famous wine districts such as St Emilion ( a UNESCO World Hetitage Site since 1999), Lalande, Pomerol, and Fronsac. Spend an afternoon meandering through the beautiful Chateaux and vineyards of the region or the cobbled streets of St Emilion which must rank as one of the prettiest little town in France. In this respect, Robert Parker the world renowned wine writer say of St Emilion

"Bordeaux's most aesthetically pleasing tourist attraction. Some will even argue that the walled medieval village is France's most beautiful wine town"
A very interesting and worthwhile visit to do is Chateau de la Riviere in Fronsac. Whilst the Chateau itself has a Disneyland like quality to it, this pales into insignificance to the grandeur of its cellars - 8.5 hectares (20 acres!!!) no less -which are among the largest in France.

Still not satisfied? Slightly further afield but still within an easy drive (1.5 hours) visit Bergerac, Montbazillac, Sauterne, Grave or Medoc. Alternatively if wine is not your tipple, visit Cognac and tour one of the large Cognac houses such as Hennessy, Remy Martin or Martel, once again, less than an hours drive away.

And last but not least there is Aubeterre! Voted one of France'smost beautiful villages, Aubeterre is most definitely woth a visit. It has an enchanting little square which is a very popular place to go for drinks in the evening. In addition, there are a number of family type restaurants which serve up some reasonable fare. By far the most impressive thing to see or do in Aubeterre, however, is to visit its monolithic church which is reputedly the largest in Europe. It is simply stunning!
