Exposed stone walls, white washed beams and gorgeous wood floors give the kitchen at La Maison Charentaise plenty of charm and character. Fully replaced two years ago the cream kitchen units beautifully blend in with the features on show, including the open fire and butler's sink.
The kitchen has been equipped to a very high standard, including a dishwasher, an oven with hob, a fridge/freezer, a washing machine and a microwave. A full range of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans are also provided.
At the heart of the kitchen is the long wooden dining table with two pew benches, which can comfortably accommodate up to 10 and is suitable for all occasions. Alfresco dining can be enjoyed in the open barn located adjacent to the main house.
The comfy lounge is a lovely place to relax no matter what the season. With its three large soft three-seater sofas it is the ideal location for enjoying an evening in with friends and family.
A flat screen TV with DVD player and a music system provide inside entertainment if needed. Alternatively, spend your time admiring the beautiful views or browsing the web with the help of the WiFi.
