On a former cognac estate on the Charente/Dordogne border you will find Le Poulailler, a charming little cottage which was once a chicken house! Now a haven of modern comforts it’s the perfect place to enjoy some much-needed sunshine and tranquillity whilst enjoying the amazing on site facilities including pool, tennis courts and a 9 hole golf course.
Historically home to the estate’s chickens, Le Poulailler has been sensitively converted and is now a petite and romantic hideaway offering holiday accommodation to couples, single guests or small families. The cottage has all the amenities you need, not to mention a lovely view from the terrace towards the valley. The estate has a wealth of facilities, from a golf and tennis club to swimming pools and a restaurant. And nearby is one of the prettiest villages in France, as well as river beaches, vineyards and historic sites. Could there be a better place to relax?
The beautiful rolling countryside that surrounds the estate is paradise for walkers, cyclists and painters, and there are also activities like canoeing, fishing and quad biking available. Wine lovers will find chateaux and vineyards aplenty while children can enjoy crazy golf, horse riding, tree top adventures and water parks. And there are numerous picturesque towns and villages to discover, from nearby Aubeterre, with its winding streets, river beaches and 12th century subterranean church, to the bustling market towns of Chalais and Riberac. Further afield the capital towns of Angouleme and Perigeux have a good selection of shops and restaurants, and the famous towns of St. Emilion, Bergerac, Cognac and Bordeaux (not to mention the unspoilt beaches of the Atlantic Coast) are well worth a day trip.
The estate is located between the villages of St Sevérin and Aubeterre Sur Dronne. It is approximately 40 minutes south of Angouleme, 45 minutes west of Perigeux and 1 hour 20 minutes east of Bordeaux. The local airports are Angouleme-Cognac, Bergerac, Bordeaux, Limoges, Poitiers and La Rochelle and the closest mainline train station is Angouleme.
