This British-owned charming bed and breakfast accommodation is situated in the sunny Charentes region of France, 2 minutes from the pretty village of Rouillac, 15 minutes from the playground that is the Charente river at Jarnac and just 30 minutes from Angouleme and the same to Cognac. The 300 yr old property is surrounded by sunflowers and vineyards which produce grapes destined for the Courvoisier Cognac house in Jarnac. It is a wonderfully tranquil situation - many guests simply enjoy relaxing in the gardens watching the birds and listening to bordsong. The thick stone walls of the accommodation keep it cool in summer and warm in winter.

Breakfast can be taken in the dining room or on the terrace during warmer months. It is available from 7h00 and local and home grown organic produce is used wherever possible. Most days there is a selection of home made confiture, home baked bread and rolls. Eggs, any way you like them, come from your hosts own chickens.

Free WiFi internet access is available. There are five covered parking spaces available and otherwise plenty of room to leave your car in the safety of the gated courtyard. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in the salon and there is also a TV / DVD which guests are welcome to use

If Cognac is your tipple, your hosts will be delighted to help you arrange a tour of the cellars and chateaux of one of the major Cognac houses. These tours are available in English if you book in advance
