Property Description

La Metairie is a spacious 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom beautifully restored, barn conversion with many original features.  The nearest neighbours are about 200m down the lane.  A private heated pool with large patio area and sunbeds is for the sole use of guests. The solid stone walls and tiled floors keep the house beautifully cool in summer.

The house is very well equipped and includes Wifi and English satellite TV.  It has been renovated to a high standard and sits on an acre of land in a very tranquil location.

There are four large bedrooms, one of the ground floor with an en-suite bathroom.  The master bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom and the third and fourth bedrooms share a bathroom.  The kitchen/ dining rooms is very well equipped and includes a table that seats 8 very comfortably.   The kitchen has a double oven and range, microwave, dishwasher, etc.  If you prefer cooking outside, the Bar-b-q and outdoor dining under the trees should do the trick. 

The heated pool has a very large landscaped patio that is secured on all sides by walls and gates.  The pool house includes a shower and WC so everything you need is at hand. There is also a dining table and chairs located here so if you would like to eat near the pool that is another option.

There are two living rooms and each comfortably seats 8 people.  The second living room has patio doors out to the pool area and patio. 

The nearest village, with a bar/restaurant and boulangerie, is walking distance (2km).   This is a great location for exploring all that the region has to offer – chateaus at picturesque Verteuil and Rochefoucauld, UNESCO Heritage site of the Abbey of St. Savin (1 hr), Poitiers and Futuroscope (1hr), Angouleme and Cognac (40 mins), La Rochelle and the coast (90 mins).

Stunning country retreat
5 out of 5
We have just had the most lovely week at this beautiful villa. It has everything a family could need for the perfect away-from-it all break. Plenty of room to sprawl around & relax! The house is beautifully furnished & has masses of crockery & cooking utensils. We particularly enjoyed the badminton net in the garden. Use of the local tennis courts 15 minute cycle away & the bikes to get there.  Don't have any doubts about booking - we can highly recommend!

Beautiful house, lovely location, great experience

The house is large, beautifully and tastefully done, versatile, peaceful and very relaxing. The pool is excellent too. And the owner and on-site team couldn't have been more kind and helpful in sorting out or stay and providing us with a welcome and local info while we were there. Would definitely come again.

Fantastic property for a quiet, relaxing holiday
5 out of 5

We have rented many houses throughout Europe over the years but this is certainly the best we've stayed in. We celebrated a significant wedding anniversary and birthday together with a large group (most of whom stayed near by at other accommodations) and it was absolutely marvelous. Everyone was very impressed with the property and those not staying there with us wished that they were. The house exceeded our expectations relative to the information provided on the website and the photos and description didn't do it justice. The kitchen was very well appointed with all equipment and dishes needed to cook for a large group. The house and outside spaces are beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable with plenty of space inside and out. We will definitely be going back and would happily recommend it to any of our friends or family planning a trip to this part of France. A house not to be missed!

The best - ever!
5 out of 5

We've been visiting France for many many years and have stayed in various houses, but Le Ferret has really been the best - and the others weren't exactly hovels either! There is so much interior space available, with TWO beautiful lounges to relax in, both with high aesthetic decor. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and the bedrooms light and charming. As for the exterior, the heated pool is an added bonus, and the poolside area is a wonderful place to unwind, whether or not you choose to get your feet wet... My favourite spot was the comfy cushioned outdoor sofa amongst lavender bushes. The lanes around the house are quiet and not at all hilly, so a gentle meander around the local countryside is a pleasure on one of the six bicycles available. We were six adults and only at Le Ferret for a week unfortunately - next time will be longer by popular consensus. However, we managed a trip to La Rochelle (allow two hours) as well as to the zoo at La Palmyre, Royan, in under two hours. The rest of the week was just basking in the peace and tranquility of Le Ferret, with shopping trips to Chef Boutonne and Ruffec. We were so sorry to leave Le Ferret, but were comforted by the fact that we can return - unless such a glowing review means that it will be permanently pre-booked!!!
