Detailed description

Entering in through electric gates into a spacious courtyard the main house is to the right.

There are 3 bedrooms a large sitting room and kitchen. The property has been cleverly designed so one may increase the size of the family home as this part of the property has internal connecting doors. Indeed, the new owners may wish to choose another part of the property to make their own.

Extensive renovations have taken place and the property now presents as 3 immaculate Gȋte, renovated and decorated to the highest standard, a further Gȋte (4 gites in total), luxurious en-suite B&B rooms and a large dining room, accessed if needed, from the main house.

Gȋte 1 accommodates...
Up to 4 people in 2 en suite bedrooms, open plan kitchen, dining and living area with additional shower room and dual aspect fireplace. Outside it enjoys a separate west-facing terrace with views over the courtyard.

Gite 2 accommodates...
4 people in 2 en suite bedrooms, with double height entrance hall leading to living room and kitchen/dining room. French windows from the living room and hall lead to an extensive terrace.

Gite 3 accommodates...
4 people in 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and separate toilet. Downstairs is an open plan kitchen, dining and living area.

Gȋte 4 accommodates...
7 people in 3 en suite bedrooms, with a double height open plan kitchen, living and dining area. French windows open onto a south west facing terrace with views over the well tended parc and beyond.

There are extensive outbuildings, all in excellent order,. The history of many of the older properties in this area is their history with cognac and this property is no exception. The original distillery with 2 complete copper alembics is converted into an atmospheric bar with full WC facilities . 

The original “pressoir” remains unconverted and could be made into a further gite, function room or large professional kitchen. The potential of this area is boundless. Seating potentially for up to 120 people.

The outside area of the property is beautiful. Mature well tended garden areas and a walled pool garden (heated salt water pool) which can be accessed from the parc or the courtyard.

The property has glowing reviews and documented revenue figures, available for serious clients to view in person. A large proportion of guests are repeat visitors. A perfect opportunity for someone to take on an immaculate property.

The property is ideal for a turn key, to run as it is currently, 4 high quality gites and a 5 bedroom Chambre d'Hote. It can be equally simply become a retreat with instant residential accommodation. A wonderful property for generational family living. And of course, for a group of friends who may want to share communal living within the beautiful grounds but with very private living areas. There are currently 5 beautifully appointed houses and a further scope for at least 1 or 2 more. A simply wonderful property.
