Gardens and PoolThe grounds at Chez Charente are spacious and secluded, providing several differing areas both private gardens and communal areas, all to sit and enjoy the countryside and the peace and quiet.
The grounds are on a split level, with La Ferme being on the lower level, access is via some ancient stone steps or for those with more limited mobility there is a second set of gates on the lower level.
La Ferme has its own large private garden which is completely enclosed for your peace of mind. In this garden you have a bbq and two outdoor seating areas for those wanting to eat alfresco, one a walled patio area outside the main doors and the other in the grassy garden. Help yourself to fresh herbs from the herb garden or fruit from the fruit trees, starting with the juicy dark cherries in June.
The children have plenty of space to run around or play on the small climbing frame and swing set.
Communal Area – shared only with the owners
On the upper level you will find the enclosed figure of 8 shaped pool (shared only with the owners), plenty of sunloungers and enough space to sit either in full sun on the deck or on the grass in dappled shade.
Beside the pool underneath the shade of the lime trees you will find comfortable sofas for those long balmy evenings, a great spot to read a book or unwind with a sundowner. Many an evening our guests spend here stargazing at the huge skies and spotting a shooting star or two.
We have lots of outdoor toys and play equipment, children will be kept busy here for hours playing in the shaded sandpit, shooting baskets or a quick game of footie. There are also several ride on toys and games for the smaller children to amuse themselves with.
We try to make your stay as relaxed as possible and are on hand to provide any support you might require, we live in an entirely separate cottage tucked away at the rear of the property.
