Summary

Description

La Sanzade is a beautiful country house, built in the 18th century, within walking distance of the historic village Aubeterre-sur-Dronne.

The house is intended to be the owner's home rather than just a holiday let and every detail has been chosen with that approach in mind. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and nearly all overlook the front lawn and swimming pool.

The ground floor consists of a large kitchen with substantial (2m diameter) table, sitting room or family room, entrance hall, dining room and library. Behind the dining room and library is a down stairs bedroom with dressing room, stone fireplace, and its own bathroom.

The house is furnished with antique furniture, as well as a wide screen Sony TV, separate TV, two play stations, DVD player, impressive DVD collection, tennis, etc. All rooms at La Sanzade are spacious and comfortable, and nearly all overlook the lawn and swimming pool giving a gorgeous view.

Bedrooms There are 9 bedrooms: 7 in the house and 2 in the adjacent cottage. Of these 9 bedrooms there are 5 with double beds (i.e. suitable for an adult couple), 3 with pairs of single beds (i.e. suitable for a couple of children or single adults), and one bedroom (bedroom 4) which has both a double bed and a single bed in it. The beds and mattresses (save 2) are from Litvinoff and Fawcett and were purchased recently. The bed linen on the adult beds is from lindolino, i.e. pure linen. The children's beds have cotton. Duvets, mattress covers, and pillows are from Peter Jones (some of the children's duvets are from Ikea). The larger bedrooms all have somewhere to sit and read or write post cards. There are numerous chests of drawers, wardrobes etc. There are also 2 cots.

Bathrooms There are 6 bathrooms and in addition a couple of separate stalls. The main bathrooms (i.e. bathroom 1, 2, 4 and the ground floor bathroom) were all refurbished in 2010. The hand painted tiles are from Marlborough Tiles (bathroom 4 and ground floor bathroom) and (bathroom 1) Douglas Watson. The stone (bathrooms 2 and 4) is from Stonells. Towels are provided (these are from Peter Jones): each adult should get a bath sheet and a hand towel, and also a towel for the pool. Each child gets the same but a bath towel rather than a bath sheet.

Area description

La Sanzade is within walking distance of the beautiful village of Aubeterre, one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France. Aubterre has everything you might need for a relaxing French holiday, including a range of restaurants and bars, post office, bakers, weekly market, bank, hairdresser, and various craft shops selling local ceramics and jewellery.

The buildings of Aubeterre are predominantly built of stone, reflecting the popular perception of an idyllic French village; there are 2 medieval churches, of particular note is the underground Church of Saint Jean, which is built from a single piece of stone, and is the largest monolithic church in Europe.

During the summer there is a river beach in the village, where you can hire canoes and bicycles, or go horse riding.

The house is also within easy driving distance of numerous famous towns and sights such as Bergerac, Surat, Cognac, and countless pretty villages.
