Lamberniere Cottages

Two lovely refurbished stone-built cottages in the heart of the French countryside set in extensive gardens, including a large 10m x 5m swimming pool, petanque court, table-tennis and outdoor games.

The cottages are set in a small village called Lamberniere in the commune of Mons. The town of Matha is just 5 mins away, great for local shopping with supermarkets, bakers & restaurants.

Cognac is 20 mins away. Famous for its brandy houses which offer tours & tastings & set beside the River Charente, Cognac offers much to enjoy - boating facilities on the river, swimming & leisure facilities in the town & leisurely strolls along the cobbled streets & modern precincts boasting many outdoor cafes & restaurants.

The Roman town of Saintes with its amphitheatre is 30 mins away & offers comprehensive shopping, cafes, restaurants & a monthly Foire.

Wonderful sandy beaches around Royan, Fouras & La Rochelle can be easily reached & the Atlantic coast islands are also easily accessible.

There are golf courses at Cognac & Saintes & for tennis players there is a free-to-play court just a short walk away from the cottages. A swimming lake with restaurant is within a few minutes’ drive.

Surrounded by vineyards & sunflowers, the cottages have been newly renovated & both provide fully equipped kitchens, new bathrooms with large walk-in showers & tasteful furnishings throughout. A 10m x 5m swimming pool sits within the large gardens, together with a petanque court, table-tennis & a range of outdoor games.

The Charente Maritime has a sunshine record comparable to the Mediterranean thanks to the Gulf Stream, & is the second-sunniest part of France after the Riviera.
