Villa overview – owner’s description
This elegant 18th-century château stands in 2.7 hectares of walled grounds, in an idyllic peaceful setting of imposing trees with a large formal garden with statues. The superb mosaic tiled swimming pool has a lovely covered terrace, which makes the ideal place for dining in the shade. Completely modernised, this side part of the château is spacious, and modern. Located in the little village of Burie with shops, it is in an area rich in history and culture, with the cities of Cognac and Saintes only a twenty minute drive. Tours of the distilleries and boat trips can be taken, as well as classical and jazz festivals and their beautiful golf courses. For a day out, Fouras is a short drive away and visitors can take a ferry to Ile d’Aix, the last retreat of Napoleon.
