Entire Apartment in Chabrac: STUNNING "LE BOIS" PIECE OF PARADISE
Come and join us in the stunning Charente/Limousin region of France. This region is known for the beautiful countryside and laid back lifestyle.
“Le Bois” Chambre d'hôte is an English family run B & B and is open all year round.It has it's own self contained appartment too. It is set in it’s its own secure parklands of over eight acres and two beautiful stocked lakes. Enter the grounds through large electric gates and wind your way past the lakes on a two hundred meter drive to the house and car park. The house has a stunning view set right above the largest of the two lakes. With seating around the lake there is no better place to relax and enjoy the lazy evenings, or go for a nice relaxing walk and maybe feed the wild ducks or spot the kingfishers or woodpeckers.
When entering through the electric gates, you can immediately see the beautiful first lake to your left. This lake is teaming with carp, cat fish, pike and black bass. It has an islandwhere wild ducks breed and live. You can walk all the way around the lake and venture on up to the second lake.
The second lake is the larger of the two lakes and is right in front of the house. It has much larger fish, some weigh over 45llb.You can also walk all of the way around this lake too. We have seating in different places all over the gardens and guests are always welcome to enjoy our gardens as much as we do. We also have an acre wood which in spring is full of blue bells and is lovely to walk around and you may even see some red squirrels which frequent here often.
Being open all year round can make this an even more magical place. In the winter it might be a little cold but what an absolutely beautiful scene Le Bois really is. It’s like a picture postcard. Whatever time of year, and for however long, there are no time limits and you are always welcome to come and enjoy our beautiful piece of paradise. Because we are quite rural, the night skies are absolutely amazing. On a clear night, which is most of the time you can see the “Milky Way” so clear that you want to reach out and touch it. You can sit outside with the night sky and have the chiminey burning and take it all in. If you just need a short break or a long holiday, here is the place to be for a relaxing wonderful experience.
The apartment on the ground floor has all facilities including Wifi, Sky TV, CD, DVD, open plan fully equipped kitchen diner with oven & hob, microwave, fridge and freezer, kettle etc. It has an open plan lounge, double bed and another bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. It has a shower room with wc and basin.
The apartment has it’s own entrance, where there is a wooden bench and table and a beautiful stone BBQ and is literally a stones throw away from the lake. You can sit out on an evening and dine “el fresco” whilst hearing the bird song. The apartment is let on a self catering basis, but we can provide lifts to the supermarket if you have no transport. (Arriving by flight and being picked up by us from the airport for a small fee to cover the fuel costs for example.)
We have a video player with lots of films and also lots of board games if anyone requires them. A CD player is also in the apartment so you can bring your own music.
