Although situated further south than many British holidaymakers would normally consider, the Charente enjoys hot summers, and Varaize, the village in which the property is situated can be reached comfortably within a day's car journey from the UK. We are happy to provide guests with recommended routes for travel here.

The property has four bedrooms, three with double beds, one with two singles, with ensuite shower room to one of the double rooms and a large family bathroom. On the ground floor is a large sitting/dining room with TV/DVD player and surround system and comfortable sofas (as well as a Yamaha Clavinova piano for musical visitors) a separate dining room with a double bed settee and large refectory table and chairs. This room is large enough to accommodate an extra couple of single mattresses (which we have available) should families require the extra accommodation. Good sized entrance hall for hanging coats and bags, and well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, electric cooker , microwave, and plenty of kitchenware to cope with all your culinary needs! Off the kitchen is a downstairs wc. The house has WiFi broadband and there is an interesting selection of books, games and DVDs. The property is south facing, and there is a substantial verandah which with two large oak refectory tables is the perfect place for summer eating and entertaining. This looks out across the courtyard, beyond which is the upper walled garden with raised 4' deep pool and decking and plenty of space to enjoy the sun. We have a selection of recliners, swing chair , gas barbecue and kiddies sit on toys.The garden and courtyard is completely enclosed, and therefore very secure for children, with a lockable gate to the outside, as well as a padlocked gate to the pool area.There is an area for parking up to three cars to the side of the property. The house is available all year round, and is comfortable in winter, having a large log burner in the sitting room as well as efficient wall mounted electric convector heaters to the dining room, kitchen and bedrooms.

Varaize is a thriving village with a primary school and an active community association who organise regular social events during the year, notably the Brocante weekend at Spring Bank and the Entrecôte (steak) evening 14th August, where for 20 euros you can partake in a four course meal, as much wine as you can consume and dance to the 3.00 in the morning. There are a small number of English living here who are actively involved in the life of the village and are on hand to offer advice to guests. Sadly the village doesn't have a bar or shop, but St.Jean d'Angely is only 10 minutes drive, with a wealth of bars, restaurants, supermarkets, shops and market on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

The property is superbly situated for holidaymakers who enjoy sampling a variety of attractions. Saintes, a historic Roman city with amphitheatre and Cognac are within a half hour's drive, lovely beaches at Meschers and St. Georges de Didonne can be reached in less than an hour, and slightly further afield are Poitiers, Limoges and Bordeaux.



The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

In recent years the Charente-Maritime has gained popularity as being an affordable and vibrant holiday destination, with its beautiful beaches and wealth of historic cities, towns and villages. Our home is well situated for access to a large variety of tourist attractions , being less than an hour's drive from the beaches of St.Georges de Didonne, Royan and Meschers, the historic port of La Rochelle, the Roman city of Saintes and the famous town of Cognac. St Jean d'Angely, a historic market town with an abbey, market, bars, restaurants and supermarkets is only ten minutes drive away. There are a wealth of activities to suit all tastes, from water sports to historic chateaux. The summers are usually very warm, and indeed all our meals are usually eaten outside under the veranda which is a wonderful shaded place.

Varaize

Varaize is a traditional French farming village, close to St. Jean d'Angely, having a Norman church, primary school and enthusiastic community association who run many social events throughout the year, the most popular being the Entrecôte evening in the middle of August, where for 20 euros guests are treated to a 4 course meal with wine, and as many steaks as they can eat, with dancing into the early hours. There are several British families in the village and our house is managed by an English caretaker and her family who are very much part of the village community, so help and advice is always available to our guests.
