Full Description

Beautiful example of a town centre 'Maison Bourgoise' with a large private garden. A grand property offering over 300m2 of living space with 7 bedrooms and a further 4 reception rooms. The house is currently used as 2 separate dwellings, but is effectively one large and imposing property. The rooms are vast and this was obviously a property built for someone of importance at the time. Period features are still evident throughout the house such as the grand central staircase which winds it way up from the oak floored entrance to the 2 floor. This one is well worth a visit inside to appreciate its worth.

The department of Charente is located in the centre-west of France and is part of the Poitou-Charentes region along with Deux Sevres, Charente Maritime and the Vienne department.

Its name as is often the case comes from the river Charente which snakes through the department. Two local dialects are spoken in the area, Saintongeais in the west and Occitan to the east.

Charente is a thriving department for several reasons, Cognac production is one of the most interesting and profitable industries, the export level of approx. 95% is a success, the consumption in France being only 5% (some say they keep the best 5% in France!).

The department has many typical towns, Angouleme in the south east for example hosts an international festival that attracts hundreds of visitors and is not to be missed.

The region is popular with hikers, bikers and nature lovers who like to discover the woodlands, lakes and streams that are part of this amazing landscape.
