Large house in Saintes, not far from the sea, looking for June 2015

Our house is situated 10 minutes walk from Saintes city center. It is a big house (more than 250 m² for living) on 2 floors : on the first floor, there are a large kitchen, a sitting room, an office, a dining room and a large living room. Upstairs, there are 6 bedrooms. There are also one bathroom with a bath, one with a shower, a separate shower and a washbasin in some bedrooms.
The house is an old "bourgeois" house (end of the 19th century) and it is not quite completely renovated yet but it is still really comfortable and pleasant as it is. There also are a flower garden, a lawn and a terrace where we have our meals in the summer.  It is our second home at the moment so we can accept not simultaneous exchanges.

Our Neighbourhood

Saintes is a very pretty little town very rich architecturally in roman antiquities, beautiful churches and a nice and old city center. Walking or biking on the banks of the Charente river is quite pleasant; there are lots of shows and festivals all along the summer in Saintes itself and in all the villages around. La Rochelle, Royan, the Oléron and Ré islands, Bordeaux are less than an hour drive from our home and if you like the beach, you will find a different type of sea here : pretty rough on the wild coast or quite smooth in Royan and around there. We also are in the middle of the vineyards of Cognac and there are lots of other things to discover and visit in our Charente Maritime, which is one of the first touristic destination in France.If you come on a non simultaneous exchange, we would be happy to invite you to our new residence in Médoc, universaly known for its wines, Margaux, Pauillac, Saint Estèphe and its surf beaches.
