This region of France is second only to the Mediterranean coast in terms of hours of sunshine.It is an ideal base for exploring charming villages and wonderful Atlantic coastline - over 300 Kms of it! Many of the towns in the area have Roman origins and there are some fascinating remains to explore.

The house itself is a barn conversion built of the local limestone with a tiled roof. All the internal floors are tiled. There is one vast living room/kitchen area (52 sq m) with a vaulted ceiling showing off the ancient oak beams and exposed stone walls. Two French doors lead out into a stone built conservatory with windows looking out onto the garden and fields beyond.

A short passage from the living room (off which is a store room and cloakroom) leads to the bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has double built-in wardrobes, a French door leading to the South East facing terrace and a walk in shower, bath and WC. Bedroom 2 has a shower, WC and wash basin. Each bedroom is tastefully furnished and each has a double bed.:

The living room is comfortably furnished with UK Freeview TV/VCR/DVD and radio channels. There is a radio/CD player and the sound reproduction is like the Albert Hall! The kitchen area is fully equipped: 5 burner gas hob, oven, dishwasher, tumble drier, 2 refrigerators, a freezer, coffee percolator, washing machine and microwave.

The conservatory has a table and chairs, which can be used outside, and there are sun loungers and a parasol. A barbecue is also available.

Hot water and central heating is provided by a gas boiler and the living room has a very efficient wood burning stove. Due to the thickness of the stone walls the house remains pleasantly cool even in the heat of the summer.

The town of Aulnay has an Intermarche, boulangeries, banks, restaurant, bars and an excellent street market in the square on Sunday mornings.There is an outdoor swimming pool here which is open each afternoon in July and August.

The nearest large town is St Jean D'Angely - about 15 minutes drive. This is a picturesque town with pretty squares and lots of friendly bars and restaurants. It is an excellent shopping centre with all the major stores being represented. The Saturday market in and around the attractive market hall is well worth a visit. The popular leisure facility - Atlantys - boasts a modern indoor pool complex with a massive water slide.

The coast is about 45 minutes drive from St Jean and there are over 300 Kms of easily accessible beaches. The port of La Rochelle is a must for a visit - classic architecture and some of the best sea food in SW France!

Cognac is close by - an original Roman town like St Jean - famous for it's distilleries - conducted tours are available at a small cost. Most of the buildings have been darkened over the years by the vapours given off during the distilling process. The losses due to evaporation are known locally as "the ang
