History

Our 300 years plus property was previously part of the wider farm buildings behind our property owned for generations by a local nobleman and were used as ‘chais’ for the local production of cognac.  In the mid 19th century the grape vine virus phylloxera had a devastating effect on many of the smaller vineyards – our property was separated from the buildings behind it, sold off and was then run as a small farm growing mainly cereals. The couple who owned it died childless and it became quite derelict until we bought it in 1989.  

The building was just a shell when we began our renovation project and love affair with France, many years of hard work has resulted in what you see today!

Below are just a few photos of the various stages of renovation for those of you who may be interested.

Lovely accommodation. Perfect for walking, running and cycling. Easy access to Rochefort, La Rochelle and Cognac etc. Loved seeing the Owls and Hoopoe bird. Pool made a difference during hot weather. ...
