Juignac, Charente, France

Traditional rural farmhouse in SW France, acreage, outdoor pool. Countryside setting.

Introducing

I am Kerry a registered nurse & health visitor but living the dream in south west France where, with my husband Brian, we have our home & 2 holiday cottages. Brian took early retirement from being a paramedic to rennovate our home in France & run a diy/decorating business. We are both youngish !! middle aged without children. We are non smokers, love the outdoors, are keen cyclists & are animal friendly.

About Our Home

We have a large French farmhouse & 2 gites/cottages which gives us our income with holiday lets each summer. The gites were previously offered on this site as part of the exchange, however, our previous home exchangees did not express a wish to use them & therefore we have closed the holiday letting business down and will not be offering use of the cottages in a home exchange. Therefore our home now is one very spacious 2 bedroom house, with traditional large rooms, 2 livng areas with wood burning stoves, a large open plan kitchen with access to the huge garden. We have exchanged homes with a number of Australian couples who have wanted to enjoy a taste of French life & culture but also to use our home as a base to explore Europe with the cheap travel options & easily accessible routes on offer.

Our Location

Le Petit Maine, is a small, rural hamlet situated in “sunny southwest France” on the Charente/Dordogne border close to the very pretty medieval town of Aubeterre. Here you will find our traditional Charentaise farmhouse and 2 gites, set amongst 5½ acres of French countryside. We have a very close community of French neighbours & friends but also have English speaking expats close at hand to help out, should you need/ choose. The countryside, culture and cuisine of this area invites those seeking rest and relaxation, at the same time there are activities available that would appeal to the most energetic of adults and children.

Other Comments

We are looking to swap to a home in Queensland Australia. 1st choice Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast. We have completed 4 home exchanges in Qld for a total period of 18 months 2013 - 2015. We would now be interested in a 3 month starting exchange December 2016. We are a fit middle aged, child free, animal friendly, professional couple. We will look after & respect your home & ask the same of the couple who would like to live in our home. You need to be fit as our property is a large place, although there is less maintainance to do between Oct - Jan. We are very happy to care for your gardens/ grounds. Car swap is essential.
