Maison Calme House and Cottage in Charente-Maritime, a cottage in Poitou-Charentes: Swimming Pool

4 bedroom 3 bathroom house & cottage with idyllic vine views in peaceful hamlet

This elegant Charentaise country house stands in one acre of grounds surrounded by rolling vineyards in a beautiful hamlet with no passing traffic.

The large heated swimming pool has a spacious terrace surrounded by lavender and roses with views of vines and open countryside. There is a large dining terrace with a shaded gazebo seating 8 for alfresco meals overlooking the pool and vines beyond.

The lovely stone house is full of original features including beamed ceilings and a Charentaise fireplace and has been completely restored by the British owners as their holiday home. The stylish interiors are light and elegant with a focus on comfort and relaxation. Quality equipment, appliances and furnishings have been used throughout.

In addition to the main house which has 3 bedrooms there is a self-contained and recently refurbished stone cottage sleeping 2. The delightful stone cottage lies just outside the main front gate of the property and is fully equipped (wifi, satellite TV, kitchen, sitting and dining area) to offer additional flexibility for bookings.

The cottage is only available as part of a booking for the main house and will never be let separately. For smaller parties of up to six people, the main house can be booked without the cottage at a lower weekly rate. There is a separate listing on Chez Nous which gives the weekly rates for the rental of Maison Calme main house on its own. Alternatively, you can contact the owner for further details.

The house and cottage are professionally managed by English agents who live locally and are on hand if problems arise. They also organise the weekly linen change (all linens, towels and utilities included) and undertake pool cleaning and maintenance so guests can relax.

The situation of the house and cottage is truly special - in a large garden with a pretty front courtyard completely surrounded by vines and at the end of a no through road.

The location is totally peaceful and there are lovely walks and bike rides from both the front and back of the house (4 bikes provided). The hamlet of Chez Billon is extremely pretty and includes the site of the font (natural spring) for a noted 12th century historic abbey which is within easy walking distance for picnics and concerts including an annual summer festival.

Geographically the house and cottage are perfectly situated - mid-way between the lovely Roman city of Saintes with its pretty pedestrianised streets and world famous Cognac. The chic ports and beautiful beaches of Ile de Re make a wonderful day out and La Rochelle, the Gironde estuary and many scenic stone villages on the Charente are within easy travelling distance. All in all the location and quality of the house offers the best of all worlds for a holiday in the Charente Maritime - one of the sunniest regions in France.
