Charming village house, full of rustic character in the heart of a typical, small French village.
Next door to the house we have our garden gite for two (also listed on airbnb) however we do not let the two properties at the same time to different parties.
Lovely outdoor spaces - small courtyard garden plus a larger garden with different seating areas for alfresco dining and sunbathing. For families there's plenty of space for children to play.

The space
For 2020 we have a new, very useful, au-vent space which is situated at the end of our barn in the large garden .
This is a large covered space, open on two sides that can provide both shade and shelter. There is a long table and chairs for alfresco dining.
Here we also store sun loungers and in a large box you will find cushions for garden furniture .

Other things to note
Please be aware that this is an old building and the rooms are on varying ,different levels with steps in places.

Location

Villars-en-Pons, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France

Our house is situated on the village square where there is ample, safe parking. Close by is the 12th century Romanesque church. The village has many ancient, typical Charentaise houses.

It is a 20 minute drive to the lovely, historical town of Saintes and Pons is even closer.
The village is surrounded by vineyards which produce grapes for the local wine, Pineau des Charentes, a fortified wine and Cognac. In high Summer there will be fields of maize and sunflowers.
The charming little estuary beaches are an easy 30 minute drive from our village and the larger beaches and ocean can be found at Royan and along the Atlantic coast a little further away.
The Ile d'Oleron, Ile d'Aix, Ile de Re and La Rochelle are great spots for day trips.

We can recommend some good restaurants in the local area, places of interest to visit.

I live in the U.K but love to spend time with my family at our French house. Walking is a favourite pastime and in particular walking with friends and exploring the different Caminos leading to Santiago de Compostela. Other interests include travel, reading, music, playing the violin and quiltmaking - both teaching classes and creating.
