Converted Farmhouse Holiday Rental in France

Did you know that there are many historic farmhouses in France that have been converted into beautiful holiday rentals, ideal for family vacations in the French countryside? Today we are featuring Chez Blaireau (house of the badger), a secluded, peaceful, and very private, tastefully converted 18c Charentaise farmhouse set in 2 acres of secluded woodland garden backing onto a small stream.

Imagine a house with 5 large bedrooms and an extensive fully fitted kitchen with seating for 14 people. Having your own kitchen can be a great money saver while on your family holiday in France, but if you are sick of cooking, the owners can offer varied cuisine from South East Asian and Indian through to most European. The house also boasts a massive salon with an attractive mezzanine floor and even though you are in the French countryside, satellite TV will keep you in touch with the rest of the world.

Outside, there is a 14m pool with 2 showers and WC. This pool is for your EXCLUSIVE USE. The garden boasts extensive fruit trees amongst which are cherry, plum, fig, pear, peach and damson. Just help yourselves! Beyond the lawn is the marais, where there are numerous species of birds including storks, falcons, cranes, golden oreoles and hoopoes. Children's climbing frames and a large lawn for the young ones to play on make Chez Blaireau a great place for your family holiday in France.

Should you wish to take a "joy-ride" in a light aeroplane, then the owner, a professional pilot, can provide this pleasure too. The area will unfold beneath you for a fabulous experience to take home. The aerial photos will be a lasting memory.

Local markets are held at least weekly in Rochefort(3 times weekly), St Savinien, Saintes and La Rochelle- to name but a few. The local village is 1.5 km or 20 mins walk and boasts an excellent boulangerie. If you have any questions about local happenings, the owners, who live only 12 miles away will be happy to advise you.

How do you get to this unique holiday rental in south west France? Chez Blaireau is easily accessed from the channel ports or by low-cost airlines to Poitiers, La Rochelle, Bordeaux and Nantes. OR, the cheapest way we can find, SPEEDFERRIES from Dover to Boulogne. Trans-Atlantic flights arrive at Paris and Bordeaux.
