Full property description

Welcome to the picturesque commune of Dompierre-sur-Charente and this stunning villa, nestled in a private, 8500m² garden that’s like a semi-forested park, right in the middle of lush vineyards. The Charente-Maritime department is known for its beautiful coastline, nature reserves and medieval villages, and you’ll be in the perfect spot to explore it all.

The house is well laid-out for those with low mobility, with all rooms on the ground floor except for the office and one bedroom. Designed in a Mediterranean style, the house stays naturally cool in summer and boasts fans, while central heating keeps it cosy in the winter. A natural stone terrace wraps around the house, with dining furniture and a barbecue. Soak up the sun on a deckchair, have a dip in the pool, or why not challenge your group to a game of pétanque?

The large kitchen is perfect for whipping up anything from toast to a French feast. Avail of amenities including a fridge, freezer, stove, microwave, dishwasher and espresso machine, then enjoy your meals at a table that seats 7. The stylish living room has a comfortable sofa and flat-screen TV with a DVD/Blu-Ray player. There’s also a HiFi system and a Mac computer.

There are 4 beautiful bedrooms, all overlooking the terrace and boasting cupboards and wardrobes: The largest bedroom, on the ground floor, features a double bed, high ceilings and a pool view; the second bedroom has a double bed and the third has a small desk and vanity plus a sofa bed for one. The ground floor also hosts all the bathrooms; one with a bathtub and walk-in shower, one shower room and one separate WC. The upstairs bedroom has a double bed, 2 chairs, 2 nightstands and its own exit, with stairs leading to the garden.

The swimming pool measures 8 x 3 metres, features an alarm and is open from early June until late September.

End cleaning, linen and towels are all included in the rental price.

There is private parking on site (a road in the property fits more than 5 cars and features a gate that can be closed for safety). Smoking and pets are allowed.
