Originally a traditional farm house with outbuildings typical of the Poitou-Charentes region, Chez Freddie´s main house has been extended and renovated to a very high standard. The house is fully centrally heated.
The owner´s house is a cottage attached to an old bread oven, across the way from the main house.
The first floor
All bedrooms are on the first floor, and have en-suite facilities.

The ground floor also has a bathroom with bath/shower and WC.
The garden covers approximately 5000m² (1.5 acres). The lawn in front of the main house is shaded by lime and willow trees, and is used in warm weather for eating out.
The swimming pool is 11×5 metres with roman steps, and is 1.5 metres deep throughout.
Sun-loungers are available on the patio surrounding the swimming pool, a real sun trap in warm weather, and there are changing facilities, a shower and WC in the adjoining pool house.
Next to the pool is a level playing area for badminton, volleyball or football (equipment provided). Boules, table tennis, darts and bicycles are also available for guests’ use.
A barbecue is available for guests to use.
The river Boutonne runs past the far end of the garden, which is fully fenced. A punt for 4-6 people is available for fishing or for short trips down the river.
