Le Pommier is a delightfully converted hay barn offering premium quality accommodation for 6, in one king, one double and one twin bedroom. The large open plan first floor living area offers fantastic southerly views over the Charente countryside from the adjoining balcony.
Lots to do on site with large heated pool to relax by in the summer months or a perfect place to explore local attractions and activities, with water sports and beach at the nearby lake, La Rochefoucauld town with its own Chateau and so much more!
Le Pommier features a large 13m x 6m heated pool (available June to September) with a shallow end depth, ideal for children, as well as a gym and sauna. The large summer terrace, overlooking the pool, provides a welcome shaded area to dine al fresco or just to relax in the hammock with a book.
