When holiday time is only around the corner it's not easy to decide where to go and where to stay. Self catering holiday cottage, B&B, Hotel or even Camping, the choices are plentiful.

Let me tell you more about our holiday cottage here in South-West-France and you might just decide to come and see everything for yourself.

When we bought this holiday cottage in South-West France it had not been used since about 1964 and otherwise it was just used as a weekend escape for the former owners.

We bought it in 2004 and completely renovated it.

Voila 'La Petite Maison' came to life.

Find out why we bought 'La Petite Maison'

'La Petite Maison' is a charming well appointed holiday cottage and is situated in the heart of the South Charente South Charente region in a historic village called Poullignac. It is only 70kms north of Bordeaux and Royan, which is by the Atlantic Coast and it will take just 1hr30 minutes to get there.

We tried to retain its original feel with a huge fireplace in the kitchen/diner and with beamed ceilings throughout it exudes charm and atmosphere.

In the summer it is surrounded by beautiful fields of Sunflowers, Wheat and Pineau vines. From the patio of the holiday cottage you look over a valley with one other tiny house just visible nearly 2kms away.

Just imagine yourself there having dinner outside with your favourite glass of wine and just relaxing looking forward to another day in the South-West-France tomorrow..............

Now you know about your surroundings a little let me take you on a tour inside.

Going through an archway in the kitchen you will find yourself in the sitting room with a lovely comfy sofa for you to relax, a glass coffee table, television which is only for DVD's and a shelf full of books in english and french.

A door from the sitting room leads in to the bedroom. There you find a double bed with mosquito net. Don't worry we do not have a problem with insects, it just looks nice.

I will provide all your bedding so you don't have to worry about bringing anything.

You also have a door there which leads to the private patio and the swimming pool.

In the bedroom is another door which leads you straight to the bathroom which is equipped with a shower, W.C. and basin.

Again, do not worry about towels. I will provide them, plus the pool towels.

You see, I am making everything nice and easy for you, so you can just relax and enjoy......

And there we are, that was the interior tour of 'La Petite Maison'. I hope you liked it.

My holiday cottage sleeps 2 and is ideal for couples as it is very private.

It is separate from our house and you are able to share our garden which is app. 3 acres of rolling parkland with fruit trees, vegetable patch and 4 chicken, which are called Alice, Starwars, Marley and Blanc!!!

And of course there is the 10m x 5m swimming pool for you to enjoy.

In case you should feel energetic we do have Badminton and Boules for you to play.

You will find your own B-B-Q and garden furniture by the private patio.

As mentioned before all bed linen and towels are provided.

It is also possible to have dinner cooked for you. It will be cooked by me, so I would need a little advance notice, and I would serve it for you either by the pool or on your patio.

It would be a 4 course meal with wine. This is not included in the price and is a separate arrangement.

So, I do hope you enjoyed my little tour of 'La Petite Maison' the self catering holiday cottage in the South-West France and maybe you will come and see us and enjoy a wonderful and relaxing time here..........
