     Description 


The farmhouse was built in 1603, and this was always the major
consideration during the restoration. Reclaimed materials and
traditional building methods were used to repair and reinstate many
features. We have also selected traditional French furniture,
especially in the bedrooms and the lounge and dining areas. Whilst
the farmhouse was restored to reflect the period in which it was built
it also has the added comfort of today's luxuries.

Downstairs there are enormous oak beams, a traditional Charentais open
fireplace, exposed stone and tiled floors. Along with the Louis XV
style lounge furniture, a beautiful oak cabinet houses the TV/DVD
player and CD player. The dining area has a large Basque oak dining
table, with six chairs. The fully equipped kitchen has a Smeg
dishwasher, microwave oven, gas cooker and fridge, together with
plenty of cooking utensils, serving dishes and cookware. There is a
downstairs showerroom complete with mosaic-tiled shower, a wash basin
inserted into an oak surround and WC. There is a 200 litre hot water
supply so there is always lashings of hot water available.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms - two double and one twin. The two
double bedrooms have traditional French bedroom furniture, with
chevets and bedside lamps for that late night reading. The two front
bedrooms have spectacular views of the River Vienne. The large
showerroom has a mosaic-tiled shower, washhand basin and WC.

There is a communal laundry area in an adjoining building with washing
machine, iron and ironing board.



 

     Amenities 


Situated in a quiet hamlet surrounded by unspoilt countryside, most
people agree that the farmhouses are amongst the best of the rental
properties available and that they have one of the most stunning
locations in the Charente.

These farmhouses are set in one acre of land with large 10 x 5 m solar
heated swimming pool. Each house has its own exclusive outside dining
area - table, chairs and essential barbeque - under its own covered
pergola. The houses have been restored to reflect the period in which
they were built, but with the added luxury of today's home comforts
and are far removed from the idea of the typical French gite of
yesteryear.



 

     Attractions 


The area around Confolens contains many typical French villages with
medieval quarters, local markets, chateaux, old churches and lakes
with beaches - perfect for swimming or just for relaxing.

Just a scratch on the map but Manot is situated between Confolens and
Roumazières, a route indicated as one of outstanding beauty. A
typical sleepy French village with the old bridge crossing the River
Vienne, the beautiful church dominates the skyline on your approach.
Velorail

Manot station may not have seen a train for some years, but many
people pass through it or board from it using the velo-rail. The best
way to describe the velo-rail is to liken it to pedaloes that run on
rail tracks - a great day out for the whole family.

Manot also boasts a very small beach by the ruins of the old mill.
Here, the beds of the local river contain minute deposits of gold and
garnet for which you can prospect whilst paddling in the cool clear
water. For the more ambitious it is one of the starting points for
the canoe school, where you can paddle up river to Confolens.

The village shop is a short stroll away from the farmhouses and is
great for the odds and ends you may need. There is also a boulangerie
where you can get your freshly baked bread and croissants each morning.

Confolens, with its bars and restaurants, stands at the confluence of
the rivers Vienne and Goire, and is a delightful medieval town with a
castle keep and natural spring. Every year the whole world meets in
its streets to celebrate folklore and traditional music from all over
the globe. Canoes and pedaloes are available to explore the river.
