Villa overview - owner's description

Set in a unique estate in the Charente Maritime, with a backdrop of ancient stone walls, this 17th century villa with private pool is set in twelve acres of beautiful parkland.

Formerly the groom's stables, Etables Serbise has been lovingly converted into a warm and welcoming holiday home. The estate, including vast areas of stunning parkland, includes an impressive Chateau Serbise and homely Domaine Serbise, all three historical homes can be rented together for large groups and celebrations or booked separately for an ideal family holiday.

At Etables Serbise, country-style accommodation lets your family come together in comfort, cook a beautiful meal, open a bottle of local wine and toast your good fortune! There are six sweet bedrooms, including two in a Rapunzel-like tower plus an inviting living room and a homely kitchen-diner, all furnished with simplicity and comfort. There are many characterful features such as stone walls and wood beamed ceilings as well as a swimming pool surrounded by a shaded terrace and space for children to play.

Whilst the charming home is full of history, you will find all the modern conveniences you would expect such as a well-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher, Wi-Fi and satellite TV. The villa features a lovely terrace, barbecue and al-fresco eating area in addition to the private swimming pool, not forgetting the estate's spacious gardens and parkland for you to explore.

Within 6km can find yourself in medieval Pons with restaurants, small shops and historical sights. Activities in the area include golf, horse-riding and canoeing or hire a bicycle from the estate to explore the parkland and beyond. Beach-lovers only have to travel just over half an hour to the coast – there are long stretches of sandy beaches from St Georges de Didonne to St Palais sur Mer. Wine aficionados needn't travel far either with dozens of wineries and Cognac nearby. This region has a particularly mild climate all year round and it can be one of the sunniest parts of France during from late Spring to Autumn.

Etables Serbise and the surrounding estate offers you character and comfort in a glorious historical setting, ideal for a holiday with family or friends wanting to explore this sunny and delightful area.

Location

The region of Charente Maritime is one of the sunniest parts of France and benefits from a mostly sunny and warm climate from April through to October. The influence of the Gulf Stream means that winters can be as mild as the Mediterranean. Cognac & Saintes are 15km away and Royan is 25km from the estate. The airports of Bordeaux, Angouleme and La Rochelle are within 1 hours drive and are served by an increasing number of UK regional airports.
St. Genis & Pons are both 5-6km away where there are restaurants and small shops. The nearest beach is only 35 minutes drive. There are 3 golf courses nearby: Saintes (typical UK type club), Cognac (good course, above average) and Royan (reminds one of the Berkshire courses - pine on sand - good course).
The area has many historical sites relating to its past including the periods of Roman occupation, Richard Coeur de Lion and Eleanor of Aquitane, the French Revolution and the Second World War. As the centre of Cognac production, the towns of Cognac and Jarnac are must visits with guided tours around the headquarters of brands such as Hennesey, Martell, Remy Martin, Otard, Hine etc. etc., as well as many opportunities to visit local producers.
The coast line from St Georges de Didonne north to St Palais sur Mer has miles of sandy beaches and good fish restaurants. The towns of Royan, La Rochelle and Rochefort are interesting places to visit and are all within one hour's motoring.
The area abounds with many fine restaurants, some more expensive than others, but all incredible value for money. Many local artisans welcome visits to view their business, including barrel making, wood carving and sculpture, pottery production, chocolate making and many more.
The wine production areas of Bordeaux are within easy reach with the Blaye region only half an hour away and St Emilion only just over an hour by car. From the towns of Blaye or Royan it is possible to take a car ferry across to the Medoc.
The city of Bordeaux can be reached in an hour with its good shopping, art galleries, museums and historical buildings. The same can be said for Saintes. Within an hour there are three top golf courses, at Saintes, Cognac and Royan, with more around Bordeaux.
As well as the obvious sea fishing, river fishing in the Seugne is only 5 minutes away. The major river of the area, the Charente, is only half an hour away. Only 5kms in either direction are good quality local tennis courts. There are several horse stables around providing riding for all levels through the local woodlands. A very local stable provides carriage rides around the lanes of the area. An international length (1.2km long) go-cart track is only 10 minutes from Clerbise. Canoes are available for hire on the local river Seugne.
A busy nightclub is just 5kms away and is open from Thursday to Sunday.
