About Helena Robinson
We are a professional couple with 2 children. We both enjoy visiting France and enjoy finding out about and tasting the many different wines, cuisine and cheese! We also enjoy the outdoors and find that the Charente Maritime climate allows us to enjoy the hot summers as well as the warm springs and autumns. This gives us the opportunity go fishing (Ian and the boys), walking and cycling (along the river Charente) and actually plan BBQ's! We also love the French markets and wine festivals.
Why Helena Robinson chose Saint-Brice
We have been visiting the Cognac area for over twenty years and find the area ideally placed to relax and unwind as well as immerse ourselves in the cuisine, wine, scenary and culture. There is always plenty for us to do and discover (particularly the Bordeaux region - we have steadily been building up our knowledge of the wines from this area!) . It's also not too far away from St Malo and Caen so it is in easy driving distance which is another reason why we chose this area to buy a property. We aim to visit 3 - 4 times a year if time permits.

Fantastic family villa in a beautiful part of Fran
A great sized family villa - big enough for 2 families - which was very clean and excellently equipped. All questions about the property were swiftly dealt with by Mrs Robinson and she had even left some wine for us - thank you, along with plenty of recommendations for things to do in the area.
There are lots of beautiful walks to do in the area and excellent supermarkets nearby.
We can't wait to go back in the summer to try out the fantastic looking pool in the enclosed garden!
Spacious house with large pool in a great location
Wow, we had a fantastic family holiday in sunny Saint-Brice. The house itself is a great size and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We spent most of our time at the house on the terrace area and around the generous sized pool. As an extended family group we had 3 cars for which there was plenty of space in the gated driveway.
The house is the perfect base for touring the Charente area, some of our favourite activities were; fishing in the Charante river itself, we walked down, through the village and sat on a jetty with the chateaux featured in the photos as a backdrop. We all loved the Courvoisier experience and of course the town of Cognac itself. We also drove out to the lovely town of St Palais-sur-Mer for a seafood lunch and then spent the rest of the day on the beach.
The Auchan hypermarket in Cognac is about a 6 min drive away, we cooked and BBQed at the house most evenings and stocked up on wine as we left.
We have booked this villa again for July/Aug, can’t wait!
The beautiful sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast are about an hours drive away.
