Two bedroomed family gite surrounded by sunflower fields and vineyards in the heart of the Charente yet only 20 mins drive from historic Angouleme town, with its bustling nightlife and shopping centres. The many varied restaurants offer inside and outside dining to enable everyone to truly embrace the French way of life whilst watching the world go by. Angouleme is also home to the festival of the Comic Strip, the circuit des Remparts - where vintage cars race around the castle Ramparts and every two years the Montgolfier European hot air balloon festival. There are several lake and river beaches to choose from within 20 mins drive of Owl's House and the beautiful village of Aubeterre-sur-dronne with its arty shops, restaurants, hotel and river beach is 25 mins away. This is my four children's favourite river beach. It is possible to hire kayaks from here for the whole family for half or full day adventures and fishing permits too! The 3km lake in Angouleme with its fitness trail, cafe and fishing areas is close and also has an indoor leisure centre with slides and swimming pools and a great seasonal outdoor area with wave pools ,slides and rapids run. Again another of our favourite places. The coastal beaches of St Palais sur mer and Royan are just over an hour away as well as La Palmyre zoo which is well worth a visit as you can feed the giraffes and elephants, watch the seal show and find out about their breeding programme for endangered species.
Owl's House is particularly suitable to families as we have an abundance of toys to share - trampoline, above ground swimming pool, swings, climbing frame and slide and not forgetting our six pot-belly pigs! We also have 2 friendly dogs, five young cats and lots of chickens and ducks - all of which can be held, fed or photographed!!!
Inside the,gite is a double bedroom and a bunk bed room, newly fitted kitchen, dining table and lounge area with DVD player, books, games etc., shower room and toilet and private fenced garden, ideal for very young children. The communal garden area also has a table tennis table situated next to the pool and swings.

Owl's House is perfectly situated in the quiet, peaceful and safe charente countryside but only 20 mins from historic Angouleme - a city bursting with shops, bars, restaurants, historic buildings, festivals of vintage car racing, comic strip, gastronomy and hot air balloons. The lake and river beaches - 20 mins - are firm favourites offering kayaking trips, fishing, cafés, tourist trails and of course sand and cool refreshing water! There is so much to do in this area for everyone and we are experts in offering advice for days out as we have tried almost everything, having four children of our own! Cognac is also easily accessible for it's well known tours of the cognac houses. There are indoor swimming pools with waves and rapids, zoos, Monkeyland, indoor ten pin bowling, tree climbing, visits to the chocolate factory, local wine tours and of course beautiful sunshine!
Quiet charente countryside amongst the vineyards and sunflowers but within short drive to supermarkets, tourist attractions, bustling city of Angouleme, river and lake beaches, restaurants, Cognac tours, cycling routes etc.
