Holiday Rental House
A delightful feature of this property is that it is a haven of peace and wildlife yet only a 5-minute amble to shops etc, while set in a beautiful large private garden with tiled pool with proper steps. Self-catering house (sleeps 8 + cot) with separate apartment (sleeps 2/3). The house sleeps up to 9 people in 4 double bedrooms, 2 en suite shower rooms plus a house bathroom. There is a fitted kitchen with gas hob, fan oven, washing machine, fridge, dishwasher, juicer, microwave and toaster. The salon provides UK tv, and there is a separate snug/dvd playstation room. The house has been completely renovated to provide easy living accommodation. The property is conveniently situated in town, but within a walled private garden and ten acres of trees and wilderness which includes red squirrels...A delightful feature of this property is that it is a haven of peace and wildlife yet only a 5-minute amble to shops etc, while set in a beautiful large private garden with tiled pool with proper steps.

The property is conveniently situated in town, but within a walled private garden and ten acres of trees and wilderness which includes red squirrels, deer, woodpeckers, jays, etc and 500 metres of delightful river bank with fishing. Dining room seats 10+ at an expandable table and provides views to the garden and pool. The salon is furnished with 3 leather chesterfields (3-seater, 2-seater and 1-seater); other seating is available to use as required. UK freeview tvand dvd player; for gamers there is a separate Snug with 2-seater setter and 2 chairs, PS2, DVD, CD player; 2 double bedrooms have en-suite wc, shower and washbasin and fitted wardrobes; 2 twin bedrooms one with washbasin unit and fitted wardrobe House bathroom with wc, bath and washhand basin. Downstairs wc with wash basin. The house is 5 minutes walk from supermarkets, bakers, butchers, bars, restaurants, the canoe club and tourist centre. The canoe club hires canoes and bicycles and runs special sessions for children each weekday morning during the holidays and is good for all ages. Anyone can go on the evening 'descent of the Charente' by canoe, followed by a communal supper, which I can thoroughly recommend. Garden croquet and badminton are set out in the garden, or sit and watch red squirrels eat hazelnuts.More

About the neighbourhood
The River Charente, which borders the property, is a slow river which you can often cross three or four times in a short journey as it makes its way to the sea. The undulating countryside is ideal for cycling with many signposted cycle tracks traversing the typical sunflower fields and regularly located villages with local bakers and bars. Licheres is close by with the passenger-powered ferry (pull a rope!) which lands you on the opposite bank and further woodland walks or bike rides. The town of Mansle has several restaurants, each with different specialities - for example beef, fish or pizza - all cater for vegetarians. Innumerable chateaux are to be found within a few miles, the Chateau de Rochefoucauld is particularly impressive, with its neighbouring restaurant and chocolate factory. ...
How to get there
The nearest airports are served mainly by Ryanair; Limoges and Poitiers are both a 1 hour car journey, with La Rochelle and Bordeaux around a 2 hour drive. Car hire is available from the airpords and locally, but we advise booking in advance. Mansle is approximately 300 miles from the ferry ports of Dieppe, Caen and Cherbourg, which have regular crossings and 400 miles from Calais which is served both by ferries from Dover and the Eurotunnel shuttle train. The recommended is via Rouen which provides dual carriageway for almost the whole journey. The nearest mainline station is Angouleme with regular trains to Paris. If I stop off overnight I tend to stay at the Kyriad in Calais (but be warned, they do not provide food at the weekend) as it is handy for the tunnel. A pleasant stopover is...
