Baroden Cottage stands in its own private garden with terrace offering wonderful views across the valley.
On the ground floor the spacious living room has French doors onto the terrace. There is a fully fitted kitchen with electric oven and four burner gas hob, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and coffee maker. The lounge has two two seater sofas, coffee table, 32" TV, DVD and CD player....DVDs and CDs available.
A pine staircase leads to a landing off which there is a beautiful main bedroom with double bed and en-suite with shower and bath, and a lovely twin-bedded room with en-suite shower room.
The cottage is attractively and comfortably furnished and well equipped with good quality modern fittings and utensils. An additional room is available in our main home with en-suite bathroom if a bigger party wants to stay.
Outside, the terrace has table, chairs, permanent BBQ and deckchairs, umbrella and rotary washing line. The walled pool area is a secluded sun trap to be shared only with the owners - we will not use the pool when guests are staying. The pool is open mid May to mid September, weather permitting.
The price is inclusive of all utilities, bed linen, towels, including pool towels, and use of the swimming pool. We provide Internet access but neither Homeaway nor the property owner are liable for any loss or interruption of internet service.
What to do in the area: Without a doubt the main attraction is the beautiful town of Brantome which is about ten minutes drive away. Beautiful restaurants, canoeing, the historic Abbey and the wonderful riverside market attract visitors from all over Europe. You will never get tired of Brantome!
There are beautiful country walks starting from our door or, a few miles away there are caves to explore and miles of marked walks and cycle routes.
The wild life is amazing! Watch out for deer, wild boar and a wide variety of wild birds, including Hoopoo's.
Within a short distance there are fabulous chateaux to explore and historic villages and towns.
Within 40 minutes there are the historic sites of Angouleme and Perigueux for day trips and soaking up the atmosphere of these beautiful cities.
A Typical Day: Relaxation is the key.
We find so many of our guests just love the peace and quiet, views, wildlife, the warm sunshine and just relaxing around the garden and the pool. Long warm evenings sampling local wine and enjoying a BBQ after a day of wandering around Brocantes or just relaxing.
Be woken up by birds singing, roll over and enjoy the peace and quiet, sometimes even a tractor passes by...but, for all that, ten minutes and you're in the buzzing town of Brantome.
We try to keep a wide selection of books and we welcome you leaving your favourite holiday read and being free to take a book home with you that maybe you haven't quite finished.
We have a few garden games and you are always welcome to borrow the boules.
What the photo's do not show: Both bedrooms are on the first floor, the double bedroom to the front of the cottage has views across the valley whilst the twin bedroom at the rear of the property has a velux window which keep the cottage cool in summer. There is a shower and toilet en suite from the second bedroom whilst the main bedroom has a bath, shower and toilet en suite. All the bathroom fittings are modern white suites.
There is adequate room in both bedrooms to accommodate the child cot.
The pool is a short walk (around 30 seconds) out of the cottage garden and then into the main garden. The pool is in it's own private enclosure and has pool furniture and loungers - with cushions. If you have children then you can relax knowing that they cannot access the pool without you knowing.
