Sac - Holiday Houses in South West France on the Charente - Dordogne Border

Sac is a tiny hamlet in the Commune of St Romain, half way between the busy market town of Chalais and the lovely and famous village of Aubeterre.  Set in 2.5 acres of gently sloping gardens and meadow, with fruit, nut and lime trees for shade, Sac faces south from its hilltop down the valley, looking over sunflowers and meadows towards a small lake, distant woods and fields. This is Cognac, vineyard and Pineau country with specialities of foie gras, melon and chestnut dishes.
The site is private and very quiet, bounded by our outbuildings and  hedges. The  pool is not overlooked by any of the other 4 houses of the hamlet. The owners live in the UK.

The houses are well separated from each other (Site and Floor Plans) and there is plenty of space for privacy. The large, pool is 12 x 6 metres, sloping from 1m to 2m deep, floodlit and terraced.  Shared facilities include table tennis, bikes, croquet, Badminton, a Petanque piste etc.(Pool  &  Grounds and Games). The pool is  fenced - see pictures below.


We have 3 holiday homes available for you; all are of traditional Charentaise stone and red tile construction, renovated and simply but fully equipped. We have a full range of baby and toddler equipment, including stairgates.
They may be rented separately or together, forming a superb basis for large family or group holidays and celebrations , with a total capacity of 18 plus babies.
