Originally built in 1836, Bois Blanc was a Cognac producer's house and is set, away from busy roads, in the Grand Champagne region of the Cognac vineyards. It is now owned by an English couple who are renovating the main house. There are no immediate neighbours. The Barn is set in the gardens, and the landscaping is being carefully arranged to provide privacy. It is not overlooked by the owners who live in the main house. The large 12 x 6m L shaped pool has ample space to practice lengths while the deep stepped area allows you to sit and dip your feet in the water while reading a book ... without being splashed! The accommodation has been furnished to a very high standard.

This is an ultra-modern barn conversion with the whole front wall in glass, giving stunning views across the vineyards. The bedroom, on the mezzanine level is accessed by spiral stairs topped off with a frameless glass balustrade. From the bed the window looks like a cinema screen! There is a full width automatic blind to give privacy to the bedroom at night. Beautifully appointed, with local stone floor, furniture by BoConcept, imported German kitchen and very modern wetroom, the Barn is a place to relax and enjoy your holiday. The super king sized bed has a full Tempur mattress and all our linen is from the White Company in London. Downstairs is a stylish lounge with double doors open directly onto a generous decking. Designer Royal Botania table and chairs are provided for outdoor dining. There is a Mac computer for DVD's and music complemented by a built in Bose sound system. The barn also has wireless wifi built in.

Guests have access to the Barn and the gardens of the main house, including the 6x12m outdoor pool and landscaped pool area with sun loungers. The barn is equipped for self catering and everything is provided to a high standard. There is even wifi.

I will always be present during your stay, although I work in the week. I will meet you on arrival and introduce you to Bois Blanc and the Barn. I will show you how everything works and where to find everything. I can explain to you where to shop, the very best places to visit, the local restaurants and all about Cognac production! I try and be discrete and leave visitors in peace, but am always here if you need me, and am happy to chat and share a drink. I deliver fresh bread to your door every morning and can arrange cognac tastings and visits with top quality, family estates.

Our nearest village is 3km away with a small shop, post office, bar, cafe (it's all in one!). Cognac is the nearest town, about 15km away with restaurants, cafes, bars and (website hidden) St Emilion 80km, Bordeaux 90km, Angouleme 45km, La Rochelle 65km, Ile d'Re 70km.

This part of the Charente is a grown ups playground! There are plenty of historic towns to visit within an hour: Cognac, Saintes, Angouleme, Royan, La Rochelle, St Emilion and Bordeaux. Fantastic scenery, stone villages and a sea of cognac vines. Outdoor activities include: canoeing, cycling, walking, swimming. There are miles of off-road tracks through the vines which are great for walking, cycling or riding. The Atlantic coast and the famous islands of Oleron and Ré. Quaint costal villages, huge stretches of sandy, dune backed beaches. Oysters, Seafood, wine, cognac and pineau. Lots of independent Cognac estates to visit. International Blues Passions event (awesome!) in Cognac ( for example 2011 Moby, Morcheeba, ZZ Top - 2012 The Cranberries, Sting, Hugh Laurie 2014 George Benson, Robert Plant ). Street theatre festival in September. Fete d'Cognac outdoor music and food festival (fantastic 6 live bands over 3 days). Contact us if you want to know if anything is going on when you visit.

You will need a car. Bring your own and drive down (about 5-7 hours from the ferry/tunnel) or hire one from Bordeaux or La Rochelle airports on your way through. Order a diesel as the fuel is much cheeper in France.

We do have another apartment on the property, a Design Cottage. It is only for 4 people and does not overlook you. It does share the gardens and pool but there is plenty of room for all and most people spend lots of their time out. There are never other guests at the property.

I am a 50 something, ex Army Major who moved to France for a lifestyle change, to restore an old stone house, and offer top quality self catering holidays. I also run a small design business mainly involved in 'living space design' and 'website design'. I love my beautiful wife and family, interior design, hot weather, food and exploring different countries (I've been to quite a few with my military service) oh and photography! I have owned Bois Blanc for 12 years building it up from derelict. I have a house in Tunbridge Wells, where my daughters go to school and I live between UK (Winter) and France (Summer). I took 7 years out of the rat race to get Bois Blanc up and running and found it an inspiring and liberating experience which changed me for good! I have invested a lot in Bois Blanc as I believe that holidays are the most important weeks of the year for you. Everything must be high quality and special, and thats what I have aimed to create at Bois Blanc. The 3 L's (location) of house buying guided me to Bois Blanc, as it is literally in the middle of the vineyards of the 'Grand Champagne' Cru of cognac (the most prestigious cru). At the end of its own track with no neighbours, Bois Blanc is a peaceful and beautiful setting. It is also within 45 minutes of the magical South-West Coast, were I spend lots of our time. Summers here are always good and one can use the pool until the end of September. I love the Charente region as its is largely undeveloped and unspoiled. Time has stood still here and you rarely see another English person; yet there is lots to see and do. The famous islands of Ré and Oleron are easily accessible, as are Bordeaux (for civilisation) and St Emilion (for wine). Finally the cognac here is the best in the world! Bois Blanc was a literal ruin, but this gave me scope to renovate the traditional stone exteriors and then add completely modern interiors. Thus we have all the beauty of an old house with all modern conveniences. Being a designer, I have made the interiors of the Cottage interesting, harmonious and inspiring. I used expensive materials and fittings to make Bois Blanc the best in the region and fitting of your holiday expectations. This is not your average Gite! The Gardens and pool have had the same treatment to give Bois Blanc the luxury of a hotel, without the impersonality and the exclusivity of a villa, without the isolation. Our own (Website hidden by Airbnb) not even half finished yet, as for us, its always guests first!
