About Ruth & Neil Shipman
Having spent many holidays in France staying in other people's gîtes, we decided to take the plunge, leave behind our jobs in England and move lock, stock and barrel to France. We looked at lots of properties before deciding that this was the one, and we haven't looked back.
Ruth & Neil Shipman purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Ruth & Neil Shipman chose Chatenet
We are located in the most southerly tip of the Charente Maritime, a lovely part of France renowned for being the second sunniest in the country. We are perfectly placed for day trips to the coast, visiting the fascinating city of Bordeaux, touring the famous vineyards of Cognac, or just grabbing a picnic and one of our bikes to explore the area on two wheels. If you would rather just unwind with a good book, our pool and garden overlooking the rolling countryside is the perfect place. We live on site, and are on hand if you need us, but out of the way if you don’t.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our aim is to give you the very best from our own experience of gîte holidays, taking on the good things we found, but leaving behind the bad. We look forward to welcoming friends old and new and sharing this idyllic spot.
