Home in the Charente maritme
Hi my name is Tina ,we have had our home for twelve years,and have loved every moment of living here .we are now developing a small b@b as I love to meet new people and love to sit and enjoy a evening meal with them ,cooking is one of my favourite pastimes as well as gardening .
Our Home & Location
We live in a typical charentais house .we had a barn attached to it which we knocked through in too and now having a beautiful kitchen with a dinning and lounge area ,with a mezzanine above .we have four bedrooms two ensuite plus a family bathroom.down stairs we have another lounge and entrance room ,down stairs cloakroom and store room.we have a large garden with vegtable plots and a big above ground pool .we are 45 mins from cognac where you can visit the many cognac houses or take a trip along the beautiful Charente river. Bordeaux is a easy two hour drive away ,and La Rochelle on the coast is 1 hour 20 ,where there are beautiful beaches and of course the Ile d' re .
Our village is very quiet,but has a shop post office where all essentials can be purchased.There is a plan d' eau 5 mins away with a beach one side and fishing and during the summer months a rustic restaurant bar where drinks and food can be purchased all day and evening.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have one cat and three dogs .our eldest dog is 15 in oct ,he is a jack Russel called Wally .He was a real character in his younger days but now loves just to relax and chill and ofcourse loves cuddles .basil is a parsons jack Russell ,he is 9 and still quite active ,loves walking and being made a fuss of .roux is a Breton spaniel who wondered in to our garden about six years ago ,he was seem wondering around the area for some weeks before he found us .we think he had a chat with our other two dogs and thought two meals a day a good walk with lots of cuddles sounded good so decided to stay ,luckily he was not chipped at that stage so we were able to keep him ,the vet thought at that time he was around 18 months .
Your responsibilities would be looking after the dogs and my beautiful cat ,feeding and walking them .also to mow the lawns and check the chemicals in the pool ,and to respect our home and leave it as you find it .
