Echebrune, Charente-Maritime, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Les Tilleuls is a charming restored Charentaise farmhouse and Cognac distillery that has been thoughtfully converted into a beautiful home and 2 very special holiday gites.
Le Chai (sleeps 4) and La Grange (sleeps 8) can be booked separately or together (with an interconnecting double door) offering great flexibility for both small and large groups. Both properties have been tastefully renovated to retain original features but to incorporate all modern conveniences.
Le Chai is the ancient cognac distillery that has been converted into a stylish and comfortable 2 bedroom gite retaining the original alembic still in the living room. With its own private patio area, shared 12m x 6m pool and free access to the 3.5 acres of meadowland, boules pitch and badminton court there is plenty of room to relax and unwind.
