Secluded luxury house with private pool in the heart of the wine region.

A little shade is a welcome thing sometimes

A little shade is a welcome thing sometimes
The spacious kitchen has everything you could need.
Light and airy and overlooking the pool
The comfortable sitting room has plenty of seats and a double aspect for lots of light
Master bedroom with Super-king size bed, vaulted ceiling and en-suite wet room. Loads of storage too
Family bathroom next to the double and twin bedrooms, with bath and shower
A deer's-eye view!
The local rolling countryside, from the vines
Figs to pick in your garden in September
The bi-annual balloon race leaves from Mainfonds, 10 mins away. It is happening again this year 2017
Swim in the river at Aubeterre-sur-Dronne. 30 mins away. Very pretty and worth a visit
4 major supermarkets to choose from- when you HAVE to go! 10 kms away. A smaller one is only 4 kms

Hidden between the mill stream and the forest, Chez Meunier offers complete privacy and peace.

But not remote. Supermarket, Boulangerie, Newsagent, Bar, Chemist, and a Bank are only 4kms.

The two nearest small towns are very picturesque - with Blanzac being the friendliest and most welcoming village we have been to in France - as well as having everything you need. It also had the best pain...

We arrived to be greeted by our hosts, Steve and her husband Harry, who showed us around, explained how to use every thing in the house, and the beautiful pool. A welcome package was left for us, some of which they had bought for us, when they asked if there was any shopping we would need, and some of which...

As a new member on the Trip Adviser site it was sad that all our previous 5 star Reviews on a competitors site could not be shown.
