The kitchen is a joy to cook in and has a gas hob, large electric oven, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is crockery and silverware for up to ten people. There's a small kitchen table that seats four and a large dining table in the living room that comfortably seats up to twelve people. There is a large modular sofa in the lounge with a wood burning stove for the colder months. The house is wifi connected and has satellite tv and a DVD player. The focal point of the tropical garden is a 7mx5m swimming pool, with an overall depth of 95cm, making it ideal for pool games. There is a grassed lawn area, patio with outdoor dining set for six along with outdoor reclining chairs to relax by the pool. Guest Access The entire house is open to all our guests with the exception of a small dressing room that adjoins the master bedroom. Bed linen and bath towels are provided and changed on a weekly basis. Pool towels are not provided. Interaction with Guests You will be met at the house by our local contact who will hand over the keys, gate fob and be able to show you around the house and answer any questions you may have. Please feed back your comments we would love to know what you thought about the house and any suggestions you might have for how we can improve. The Neighbourhood The house is situated 500m from the Charente river in the heart of the historic town of Jarnac. There are several bars and restaurants in the town along with local shops including two artisan bakeries within walking distance of the house. There is a public golf course at Cognac and there are kayaks to rent on the river at Jarnac. Jarnac is approximately one hour's drive from the coast and the beautiful beaches surrounding Royan. Getting around We recommend hiring a car when in Jarnac. This can either be done locally or on arrival at Bordeaux airport. Jarnac is a one hour and fifteen minute drive from Bordeaux airport. Alternatively, you can take the train to Angouleme and a taxi from Angouleme to Jarnac which should take around 20 minutes. Other Things to Note A deposit of 50euros is required for the remote key fob. There is an extra charge of 150euros per week if heating is required for the swimming pool. More

This place in reality looks nothing like the advertised pictures. It's unkempt and in desperate need of upgrading. When I complained to the owner he failed to respond. The house is located on a main arterial route with constant day & night heavy traffic. HGVs...More
