Villa overview - owner's description
Maison Laroche is the ideal family holiday villa in the Vendee et Charente, just North West of the Dordogne and tucked away in a lovely and tranquil countryside setting surrounded by a patchwork of sunflower fields and close to a gentle stream. The idyllic setting only gets better as it is also only a 15-minute drive away from one of France's recently listed 'Small Towns of Character,' Nanteuil-en-Vallee as well as the picturesque village of Verteuil-sur-Charente, dominated by the Chateau de Verteuil.
This restored farmhouse with attached barns has been a lovely and immaculate family home for several years and recently received the personal touch of its new owners who have added their own style and taste, whilst still providing guests with a real home away from home. Exposed brickwork and wooden beams create local character and warmth, whilst the modern furnishings keep the villa elegant and attractive.
Comfort and relaxation being the key, the spacious villa has en-suite shower rooms for all bedrooms, good quality, homely furniture, cozy wood-burners and special touches like mosquito nets on windows and ceiling or floor fans. Outside, the heated swimming pool in the lovely gardens is fabulous and there are outdoor games for the kids, as well as hammocks for relaxing and a barbecue for outdoor feasts.
The village of Aunac is only a 5-minute drive away and guests will find most amenities there, whilst Mansle offers good shops and services as well as an annual dance festival. There is plenty to do locally in this part of France, as well as a little further afield - exciting Futuroscope in Poitiers is less than an hour away and fabulous Bordeaux is just an hour and 45 minutes away.
Maison Laroche is a real family home in an ideal location and will provide a comfortable and memorable base for holidays in this very beautiful region.
