Holiday Rental House
Rare property offering riverside access and private fishing on the river Charente. Beautifully secluded yet within walking distance of Civray market town, restaurants, bakeries and supermarkets which makes for a totally relaxing holiday. If you wish to drive, then days out at Poitiers (Futuroscope), Angouleme, Cognac are within an hour. Seaside trips to La Rochelle, Isle D'Oleron and Royan are within a couple of hours. One of only two houses with river frontage in this part of Civray the grounds have 500 metres of private fishing on this prolific river. The front garden is walled and gated to the river so secure for children of all ages (and swimming dogs!), yet the rear garden is open and shaded by Walnut and Peach trees.

The front garden is walled and gated to the river so secure for children of all ages (and swimming dogs!), yet the rear garden is open and shaded by Walnut and Peach trees. There is a shaded terrace for alfresco eating and picking your own grapes to go with the local Goats cheeses. Civray has recently opened an indoor and outdoor pool complex a 5 minute walk away, prices from 3 euros (www.oda-centreaquatique.fr), whilst the local campsite, restaurant and bar, with a swimming area in the Charente is even closer, frequented by the local youth and resident Coypu . As this is our home, we have fully equipped the facilities with good quality items, and fitted Sky TV in order to keep in touch with events. Wood for the fire is stored should it be needed More

Lovely homely house, quiet location by the river, felt like you were in a remote location, yet in easy walking distance of town and everything you need. Locals were friendly, twice weekly markets in town, giving you a slice of French life. Owners were very...More
