"A family home transformed into a site of inspiration and creation between Cognac and Angoulême"

The owners are passionate about history and heritage and decided to turn the typical Charente-style 1830 family home into a site to explore, arranging each room in a classic fashion with French Directory and Napoleon Empire era furniture. The various ambiences inspired by Italian gardens and British art de vivre can be found in the music room, the Art and Music libraries, the 2 dining rooms, the curiosity room, the hunting lodge (including a home cinema) and the orangery.

The house opens onto the immense grounds where the natural vegetation is beautifully kept in line with the overall sense of place. A harmonious landscape with a myriad of areas, lawns, shaded sections for summer picnics, croquet and badminton, strolls around the rose garden and dips in the 60 ft long swimming corridor.
