General description

  • Main home
Historic, restored, 400+ year old ‘Relais de Poste’ in a small friendly hamlet, 1.5k from nearest village and 8k from town with all shops and usual services.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 cats
We have two rescue cats (brother and sister) 12 years old and user friendly. The female is mostly in the house and likes company…her brother keeps more of a low profile, likes the outdoors but returns for food and sleeping. They both have their ‘quirks’ but minimal care required.

Practical life

  • Village
  • 150 - 500 m² (1590 - 5290 sq. ft.)

  • Internet
  • Television
  • Dishwasher
  • Washing machine
  • Deep freeze
  • Ground floor
  • No disabled access
The house is not remote in that we have close neighbours in the hamlet, but a car is required to access supermarkets, doctors, pharmacy etc., which are approximately 5 miles away and there is no public transport. The north of the Charente department is a typical rural farming community, with beautiful countryside for walking and cycling, and some interesting medieval remains and architecture. The house has all facilities and equipment for modern life, good internet and tv connection, despite being built in 16th century.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Forest
We are equidistant from Angoulême and Poitiers which are cities full of cultural and historic interest. La Rochelle and the coast are 45 kilomètres away, with Bordeaux within easy reach by train.
