Beautiful 19th Century Manor House near Cognac, France
Peace and luxury in a child-free environment
The region, Poitou-Charentes, is one of France's best kept secrets - a sunny and serene land of green meadow lands, sandy beaches, pine forests, romantic marshlands and Romanesque churches overlooking a luminous landscape of cognac vineyards.
The world's best-known brandy comes from this peaceful countryside and the house was originally home to a cognac producer.
Visit the delightful medieval town of La Rochelle with its harbour side cafes and shops, the magnificent Atlantic Coast with its natural wild beauty and sand dunes, and Cognac itself - the medieval town where the fabled nectar has been created since the 17th century and where the air is permeated by the aroma known as angels share.
Bordeaux, renowned for its world famous wines and vibrant cultural life, is just over an hour away.
Other attractions include Futuroscope, the science amusement park, La Palmyre Zoo - voted European Zoo of the year. Golf courses, tennis courts and horse riding are all nearby.
Or make Le Logis de Bresdon your very own retreat, and allow yourself time out to unwind at any time of the year in a peaceful and unhurried setting.
