French holiday home and Chambre d'hôte (BnB) with private pool in the beautiful Charente countryside
Escape to Les Granges and La Petite Cottage - both are traditional Templier properties. A French farmhouse with barns and a traditional stone cottage in Condac, southwestern France.
Your hosts, Suzi and Jon, offer either Chambre d'hôtes (Bed with optional breakfast and evening meal) or Gites to rent (self-catered whole house rental) which is available in either "Les Granges", the farmhouse for a maximum of 12 people or in La Petite Cottage for maximum of 5 people.
Les Granges has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a cosy lounge. There are plenty of activities to keep you busy, including a heated outdoor swimming pool, several garden areas, an orchard, and terraces for eating alfresco. Plus, new for 2022 is our pool-side covered bar area and petanque pitch. In our rustic play barn there are garden games, table tennis, table football, a dartboard, and picnic tables for indoor, shaded entertainment.
In La Petite Cottage there are 2 bedrooms and one bathroom, a lounge with wood burning stove and a secluded courtyard with total privacy to enjoy breakfast or an evening aperitif.
Children are welcome at Les Granges or Petite Cottage. We can provide a baby cot and high chair so that all the family can eat together (and you can pack light!).
Kick back and enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful part of the countryside in France. The Charente River is only a few minutes’ walk away, and the charming town of Ruffec is less than a 5 minutes’ drive with restaurants, shops, and local produce markets held every Wednesday and Saturday morning.
We want you to have a fabulous break in our villa, re-charging and relaxing. Contact us today to discuss your holiday plans - whether it's for private rental or bed and breakfast - we are here to help.
