Our home is situated in a little hamlet surrounded by vineyards and vast skies. We are only a 10 minute stroll away from the little town of Matha where you will find the usual patisseries, boulangeries, bars, parks and market. There is even a quaint cinema and a handful of restaurants. Our orchard produces, apples, cherries, peaches, figs, walnuts and hazel nuts. It's a joy to have our own family of red squirrels playing in the garden. St.Jean D'angely is only 20 minutes drive away, a bigger town with plenty to see and do in and around it. Cognac is famous for it's wine and brandy and prides itself in being the second hottest climate in France, you will see why we were attracted to it! You can find plenty to do, there are local lakes for fishing and swimming, woodlands for walking and cycling, The Charente Maritime prides itself on having the second hottest climate in France, so you can just sit back and enjoy the sunshine PLEASE NOTE: Our home is a guesthouse and although guests have complete privacy we do not let the whole property.
