About Deborah Cakebread
We have lived in Saint Savinien sur Charente since 2004 with our 3 children. We have always loved the houses on Quai des Fleurs and when the opportunity arose earlier this year to buy one of these beautiful riverside townhouses, we jumped at the chance. We both work in the area and our 'no longer small' children go to school in Saintes and La Rochelle
Deborah Cakebread purchased this House in 2016
Why Deborah Cakebread chose Saint-Savinien
Our home on Quai des Fleurs offers the ideal balance between a calm and tranquil location and a town setting. The river Charente which runs through the town is not only beautiful but offers a variety of activities, such as canoeing, kayaking and boating. In our small picturesque town we have the benefit of a heated outdoor pool complex which is just a short walk from the house, made up of 3 pools geared for toddlers up to the most experienced swimmers, with slides, table tennis, grassy banks for sunbathing and a cafe it really is a great way to spend an afternoon, or for older children/ teenagers to be able to go to independently, without the need of a lift from Mum or Dad!. Hire a boat for an hour or the whole day and explore the river Tenis courts are available for hire in the town. Our local riding stables are only 5km from the house, hacking in the woods through to lessons for the most experienced rider are avaiable. Explore the town and its shops, cafes and restaurants, there is a twice weekly market for fresh local produce
What makes this House unique
The situation of the house is ideal for those who wish to leave the car at home, fly into La Rochelle or Bordeaux and take the train to St Savinien, the property is a short walk from the train station, you can then explore St Savinien and the Charente in one of our Canoes or Kayaks, or if you want to go further afield take the train to La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Saintes or Rochefort. This makes the property ideal if you want a short break / long weekend away with friends or family. The house has some beautiful original features, the property was built by a merchant in the early 1800's, it is one of two identical houses built for his two daughters. With a large sweeping staircase in the centre of the house and a stained glass window letting light down from the roof onto the staircase, tall ceilings and wood panelling, it is the epitomy of a 'Maison bourgeoise'. We have renovated the property to a very high standard whilst trying to retain these original features. The house is set over 3 floors, with bedrooms on the ground and 2nd floor and the living accomodation on the first floor. The riverside garden is a great place to relax and watch the river and occasional boat sail by.
