Le Grand Pezet


Le Grand Pezet is quietly located on the edge of a small valley overlooking the secluded park gardens.
It sits on a large property with four acres of gently sloping lawn bordered by mature woodland trees, six acres of woodland and a large (15mx6m) newly renovated private pool. The large house is an old farmhouse with a converted barn, lovingly restored by the 'Medecin de Village' and his wife who stayed there for many years. It is a modernly decorated typical 'Maison Charentaise' full of historic character with high ceilings with exposed oak beams, large fireplaces and old masonry.
The house offers very comfortable sleeping places on two floors for maximum six adults in
3 spacious double rooms with private bathroom and four children in two attic rooms. LOUNGE
/ LIVING ROOM Originally a barn, but many years ago integrated into the main house.
The sitting room has high ceilings with huge oak beams, a large fireplace, TV & DVD corner with beanbags and patio doors to the front
garden. A solid oak staircase leads to the mezzanine balcony which gives access to the Gallery Room and the children's bedrooms.
Large open plan kitchen/dining room
with terracotta floor and garden views. Fully equipped with American fridge/freezer, microwave, hob and oven and dishwasher. French doors to the garden and side doors to the Veranda. THE
DINING ROOM Comfortable 10 seats under a beamed ceiling next to a wood stove.


1.The gallery room (1st floor) - Super King / double white open shower cubicle and double sink with closed toilet. Beamed ceiling with a private balcony overlooking the upper terrace.
2.The Garden Room (ground floor) - Super King/twin room with en-suite shower room and toilet. French doors to the terrace.
3. The Orchard Room (ground floor) - Super King/twin room, en-suite bathroom with bath/shower, double sink, toilet and bidet. Equipped with a wood stove in an old stone fireplace.
4. The children's rooms (first floor) - two attic rooms white, both with two single beds, low ceilings, only suitable for children.

OUTSIDE Le Grand Pezet has a large park-like terrain - four acres of gently sloping garden bordered by mature forest trees, including old
umbrella pines, giant fur trees, old red oaks, birches, maples and weeping willows.

The garden directly around the house has been carefully maintained with old climbing roses, mature wisteria, collections of rhododendrons, huge hydrangeas and a beautiful magnolia. The rest of the garden consists largely of lawn and houses Le Lapinous (Wendy House), a giant trampoline and a huge space for garden games. From the sun loungers on the lower terrace you have an unobstructed view over the small valley towards the pool and large outdoor seating bags offer shade under the pine trees.
A large outdoor area for dining
and lounging with a gas grill. A flexible setup that easily accommodates a house full of guests. THE SWIMMING POOL Recently renovated fenced pool of 15m x 6m.

FOREST Six acres of private
forest to explore across the

course. Mown grassland paths, small clearings and a bamboo forest make for fun children's adventures and quiet walks. A small orchard offers fresh figs and apples for cooking

We are a family of 4 with 2 girls aged 6 & 10 living in Surrey, England. We bought Le Grand Pezet in December 2015 after a number of summer holidays in the Charente. Criteria: rural retreat in the sun with a swimming pool (critical factor!) And enough space to invite other families and friends. A quiet hideaway where the children could run around freely, swim, play on the trampoline or explore the forest. Play all day, then sleep soundly in the evening! This picture was on the day we bought LGP!
