Logis de la Barre Gite Jean-Hélie


After 900 km from Utrecht you will reach our driveway with old lime trees and you will arrive at our castle "Chateau de la Barre" (1487). The chateau has 5 gites, 2 of which have been made suitable for rental. So you have peace and privacy.

This gite for 4 people was renovated in 2020 while retaining the original details and equipped with all comforts.

On the ground floor you have the kitchen, sitting and dining area in one room with patio doors to the south-facing terrace with unobstructed views of the estate with orchard. If desired, when the time comes, you can pick a fresh apple or pear for your breakfast. If you would like to sit in the shade from time to time, you can do so in the courtyard of the chateau.
The kitchen is equipped with a fridge / freezer, dishwasher, induction hob, Nespresso coffee machine, airfryer, kettle, salad spinner.
On the 1st floor there is 1 bedroom with a double bed (2.10 x 1.80) and 1 bedroom with 2 single beds (2.00 x 0.90). Both bedrooms have air conditioning. There is also a modern bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The gite has a TV with chrome cast and DVD player. A high chair, a cot (1.10 x 0.55) and a children's pool are available on request.

The Charente, bordering the Dordogne to the south, has a rich history and La Barre is an excellent base from which to discover it. Our estate is located 20 km north of Angoulême, 45 km east of Cognac and 100 km north of Perigeux.

We are Bernard and Sandra and have been able to make our dream come true by moving to France and living in a chateau. After a few years of renovation, the chateau is habitable again and we are now ready with 2 gîtes and you can enjoy the space and the quiet, beautiful French life in the countryside of the Charente, just like us.

Location & tips

Additional information

The Charente is a very versatile region with countless sunflower fields (July) and with historic cities such as Angoulême and Poitiers where you can visit many churches and cathedrals and also wander through the small alleys in search of a nice restaurant. In addition, many walking and cycling tours are possible (directly from La Barre) and of course also because of its many rivers excellent for canoeing. Angoulême also has a beach on the Charente (also with lifeguard in summer). Angoulême is also the "comic" capital of Europe with a true comic book museum and great comic book heroes such as murals. At less than 20 km you will find Chateau Rochefoucauld, a castle from the 11th century, where you can get an extensive tour. We are located on the edge of the Cognac region, so soon you will drive past the various well-known, but also unknown small cognac houses, where you can often get a tour and not to forget, of course, also taste.
