Set in a completely enclosed vehicle free courtyard, the barn conversion sits on one side with the old furniture workshop opposite now housing a large well equipped games, exercise and laundry room.

At the top end of the courtyard is a large landscaped garden walled on 3 sides with seating and grassed areas and a new in ground 10 x 5 metre pool with large sun terrace and covered patio.

La Maison Hibiscus Gites is located in Villefagnan, Charente

We are situated in the centre of the gently rolling agricultural region of the Charente Department. Surrounded by fields of sunflowers, maize and vines, the area is renowned for the production of Cognac and the local speciality drink, Pineau de Charente. On the edge of this tranquil hamlet we can offer peace and seclusion yet with easy access to local shops and facilities, miles of quiet roads and lanes to cycle and explore and numerous pretty villages to enjoy.

Because of it's location in the centre of the region, it is ideally located for days out to the beach, a tour of the production facilities of the famous Cognac houses, city tours and shopping in Angouleme or Poitiers, shopping for the famous Limoges china in the many outlets that surround that city or a day or two at the Futuroscope theme park which is a treat to be enjoyed by adults and children alike. In between the sightseeing, you can relax in the pool or garden, have some fun in the games room or have a gentle bike ride.
