Our beautiful 17th century house is located in a very friendly small hamlet in rural France, 8 kilometres from the nearest town. 

The house has charentais stone floors, a stone staircase and huge fireplaces with tons of other original features. It has 4 bedrooms and bathrooms, a number of entertaining rooms and a manageable garden.

The house is built on a number of levels, so there are steps and staircases in various places throughout. And although in very rural France, we have english and French TV and Wifi. There are also some rather good local restaurants.

We are 45k from the coast (La Rochelle) and 40 minutes from Angouleme and Poitiers which have all the normal amenities of cities. Locally, we have a modest array of attractions including chateaux, Romanesque and Templar churches and roman remains. Beautiful walks, cycling, fishing etc.are at our doorstep.

We would like a cat loving couple (the house might be a little difficult to manage for one person) to care for the house and our two small cats. There would be some watering of the garden if the weather is hot...
