Driving through the Charente countryside with its fields of sunflowers and sweetcorn you may be lucky and stumble on the charming village of Verteuil 5 mins south of the bustling market town of Ruffec. The river Charente winds its way under the walls of the 15 century chateau which looms above the tranquil village which also has 3 cafe/bars, 2 restaurants, bakers, butchers, tabac/ general store, pharmacy etc.


Entrance and courtyard

Passing through the large old farm gates you enter a high walled, private courtyard with balconies, and in summer, a stunning display of hanging baskets and flower arrangements. At the back of the courtyard is an open barn with secure, under cover parking for up to 6 cars.


We have 3 spacious, en suite, bedrooms plus a communal kitchen dining area in a self contained, converted barn, which retains many of the original features such as exposed beams, dressed Charantaise stone and even an original feeding trough. All rooms have central heating.


All three bedrooms have an en suite with shower, hand washbasin and toilet. Each bedroom also has ample wardrobe and drawer storage, English to French electric adapters, a hairdrier and a radio/CD alarm. Rooms are serviced daily with a towel change if required, shampoo/shower gel and soap are also provided. A baby's cot and/or supplementary camp bed can be put in any of the three rooms if required.

Ground floor family room - Double bed, 2 wardrobes and sitting area with easy chairs, coffee table and settee which converts to a double bed for families.

1st floor double rooms x 2 - One room with double and single beds and one with double bed. Both rooms have dressing table, easy chairs and built in wardrobes.

Dining kitchen

One thing we always missed when staying in Bed & Breakfast accommodation was the lack of facilities for making hot drinks, preparing picnics or even cooking a meal. With this in mind we have incorporated a fully fitted kitchen for the exclusive use of our guests. In the kitchen you'll find :
Four ring electric hob and oven
Microwave oven, fridge
Kettle, coffee percolator,Slow cooker, toaster, steamer
Full set of pots, pans, casseroles and utensils
Crockery, glasses and cutlery
Dining table seating up to 8 people
Please help yourself to free tea and coffee whenever you wish

In this area you'll also find English TV with all the FreeView channels,a wide selection of board games and videos information on all local attractions and places to eat.

WIFI internet access is available in all rooms.

We have a separate laundry with washing, drying and ironing facilities should you need them.

If you’re house hunting, then we are more than willing to pass on our knowledge and answer any questions you may have about the process of buying and renovating a property or integrating into French life (health, tax, French language courses etc.) or If you’re simply taking a relaxing break we’re on hand to help with advice on local attractions and places to visit.

Sun Terrace and Garden

From the kitchen French doors lead out onto the East facing sun terrace with covered gazebo where, in summer you can eat your breakfast in the morning sunshine.

The lawned garden has a pergola walkway around three sides and enjoys the sun from early in the morning to late afternoon.
