Cottage overview - owner's description

La Maison du Bonheur (The House of Happiness) is in the beautiful Village of Bourg-Charente; it offers the perfect retreat for couples or families looking to make the most of the picturesque surroundings, ideal for walking or cycling, the fabulous restaurants and bars to enjoy a tranquil lunch or a relaxing evening meal, and the nearby towns and attractions steeped in history.

La Maison du Bonheur is situated on the village square and has recently been lovingly restored and boasts two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with a bunk bed, a spacious lounge with a sofa doule bed, a kitchen/dining/sitting area, bathroom/wc.

The surrounding area is undulating and ideal for walks through the vines. Cognac Houses abound throughout the area and visits can be arranged should you wish to sample, and possibly purchase, some of the excellent cognac produced in the area. Cognac old town is delightful. There are narrow, winding, cobbled streets to stroll around, perhaps finishing the tour with a picnic on the riverside. The river Charente passes through the village, and you can hire canoes in Jarnac or Cognac and you can also take a leisurely trip down the river.

There are many festivals which take place in the area, throughout the year. During the summer months there is a host of musical events, together with local markets. Cognac is home to the famous ‘Blues Passion’ in July and musical events take place throughout the town during that period.

We are well served by airports: Limoges, La Rochelle, Poitiers and Bordeaux, all about one and a half hours’ drive. Angouleme Station (TGV) is about 30 minutes’ drive. All the airports have car hire facilities, as does Angouleme Station. Calais is about eight hours’ drive, the other Channel ports are about six hours’ drive.
