There’s something about this sun-soaked corner of southwest France that keeps visitors returning again and again. It could be the blue skies, the friendly neighbours, or maybe just the easy way of life. Whatever it is, the Charente department is an ideal place for a getaway, or to set down some roots in the French countryside.
Follow your dream to the quiet village of Mérignac, where there’s a lovely cottage for sale—and we think it’s a great value at just 160,000 euros. For one thing, the location is fabulous. Just a short drive away is Cognac, the birthplace of François I and home to fascinating cognac houses, and also Angouleme, the capital of comics. You’re equidistant from Bordeaux, Limoges, and La Rochelle- each just one hour away.
And the cottage itself is a spacious hideaway of 130 square meters over two floors with an attached garage and a ground floor bedroom and bathroom with its own access that could be independent from the main cottage (and could therefore be rented).
Historic details have been preserved, like pretty wood beams, and the property has been upgraded with all the modern conveniences– like the well-equipped kitchen and comfortable, tiled bathrooms. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study, living room, and kitchen. What a charming abode!
