Le Figuier has been beautifully renovated from an old charentaise barn to produce a beautiful gite (80M2) which successfully blends contemporary and traditional features; it benefits from having lots of honey-coloured stone walls and traditional oak beams. Le Figuier has two bedrooms upstairs and a shower/toilet room. Downstairs, there is a large lounge/kitchen/diner with a washing room and an additional toilet.

Stunning rural location. Got a taste of real France. Very well equipped and tastefully decorated gite. Relaxing holiday, with plenty to do around and about if you wanted to. This was a great family holiday. I travelled with my husband and 3 children aged 11-17....More

About the neighbourhood
The surrounding area has a great deal to offer from the buzzing town of Cognac (lots of cafes and boutique shops, not forgetting the world-famous distillery tours - Hennessy, Otard, Remy-Martin, Martell and Camus!), to the beautiful ancient towns of Pons and Saintes. Weekly local markets are held in Cognac, Pons and Saintes. There are a multitude of local restaurants and bars all within an easy drive. Some are (luckily!) only about 15 minutes by bike.

The beautiful beaches of St George-de-Didonne and St Palais-sur-Mer are a 30 minute drive way and La Palmyre Zoo (one of the biggest zoos in Europe with over 1600 animals to delight all the family) is about an hour's drive.

Other 'bits':
Post Office: Brives sur Charente.
Local shops: Salignac, Perignac, Dompierre and Rouffiac.
