We look forward to welcoming you to 'Chez Les Hirondelles', our privately owned gite/holiday home. Chez Les Hirondelles is a large and beautifully renovated barn, which includes all modern facilities, yet still retains the character features of huge oak beams, Charentais stone walls and is set on a hillside with the most stunning views. It has its own large garden, with established fruit trees and has a fantastic open sided covered hanger as a patio, meaning you can sit out in the fresh air come rain or shine looking out far across the sunflower fields, woodlands and hills. The 10 x 5 m pool is totally private to the property and surrounded by a beautiful decking patio with sun beds and again those views! The pool has an alarm system and is fenced so safe for children.

Chez Les Hirondelles is a large and beautifully renovated barn, which includes all modern facilities, yet still retains the character features of huge oak beams, Charentais stone walls and is set on a hillside with the most stunning views. It has its own large garden, with established fruit trees and has a fantastic open sided covered hanger as a patio, meaning you can sit out in the fresh air come rain or shine looking out far across the sunflower fields, woodlands and hills. The 10 x 5 m pool is totally private to the property and surrounded by a beautiful decking patio with sun beds and again those views! The pool has an alarm system and is fenced so safe for children. Our stunningly converted detached barn offers 5 beautiful bedrooms, two of which are en-suite and situated in what must be one of the most stunning locations in the Charente with far reaching views over the countryside from every room and the stunning open sided covered patio. There are beautiful walks from the doorstep, a large garden leading off into the countryside, plenty of parking and private pool. We are situated in the south east Charente region of France very close to the border of the Dordogne and are surrounded by rolling hills and woodland, maize and sunflower fields but only 2km from the pretty town of Montmoreau St Cybard, with all amenities including butchers, bakers, bank, post office, bar and a little restaurant and a large supermarket. The stunning town of Aubeterre sur Dronne is only 15 minutes away with its unusual Romanesque monolithic underground church and voted one of the most beautiful villages in France. It has a golf course with a lovely terrace and restaurant and welcomes children. It has a variety of great restaurants, a wonderful river to swim in or you can sit with a chilled glass of wine or cold beer in the square watching the world go by. The area has a wealth of charm and tranquility, from the South Charente with its echoes (but fewer tourists) of the next door Dordogne to the gently sloping vineyards of the wealthy Cognac producing West Charente. Spend your time visiting the many wonderful local markets including Aubeterre, Brantome, Riberac, Chalais and Villebois Lavalette with its feudal chateau dominating the region from its hilltop. Villebois has a market every Saturday morning where you can enjoy a dish of fresh oysters with a bottle of Miscadet under the ancient and covered market square. The attractive hill town of Angouleme is 30 minutes away, best know for its stunning Romanesque cathedral, international comic festival and the Cirque de Ramparts held each year. Spend a day tasting the wonders of the great houses of Cognac and learn about the history and production of this glorious amber nectar. The stunning town of Brantome is just under an hour away where you can wander the cobbled streets, take a canoe around the island town or sit in the park with its huge trees and stunning plant life. The coast to the north of Bordeaux with the famous towns of Royan and La Rochelle is between 1 1/2 drive from Montmoreau. There is also a fantastic Safari Park at Guizengeard. Visit two parks of several hundred ha in a 4x4, where you will discover semi-wild stags, deer, wild sheep and bores. Also jet skiing, toboggan run, and quad biking, are all available at the Lake Vallier - a great day out for all the family. These are but a few tasters of what our area has to offer, and if it all proves too much, take time out to relax by the pool with a good book and a chilled glass of wine taking in the breathtaking views around you, not to mention the utter peace and tranquility this gite offers. We are happy to take long weekend bookings or long term lets out of season and can price upon request.In the cooler months, we supply 1/4 cube of logs free of charge. If you require any further we charge the same rate as we pay to our supplier. More

The gite is really nice and spacious. The pool is perfect: just down some steps and guarded by a proper fence. The hosts do live nearby and they are very helpful, but you will have all the privacy you'll want. The view over the fields...More
