    Rural France has many farmers markets and lovely places to visit nearby. It's peaceful and quiet and the village we live in has other children that my children play out with. The surrounding area is beautiful. We live in an old renovated bakery, the house is large and well equipped.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The towns of Angouleme and Poitiers are both 45 minutes away and Beautiful Bordeaux is 90 minutes by car. Also the Atlantic coast and La Rochelle are less than 2 hours away. Locally there is a lovely forest, lakes and beautiful countryside walks, it's great for cycling and you have access to road and mountain bikes with us.

    This is a family home, it's busy when the children are here and we enjoy family meals together. The children do chores and everyone is expected to clear up after themselves and be thoughtful about others living in the home.
