About Irene Beeby
We have our own house on site and welcome you to our GITE. We celebrate 20 years for having our wonderful peaceful idyll in rural France in 2017
Irene Beeby purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Irene Beeby chose Benest
We have loved the Charente for years with its climate, quiet countryside and beautiful woods and rolling landscape. We chose to live on a hill but near to the river so that we have extensive views of the valley. We love the local river which are within easy walking distance. We wanted tranquillity but easy access to local amenities and towns such as Ruffec, Angouleme, Confolens and Poitiers as these larger towns have wonderful architecture, fantastic restaurants, café culture and additional leisure and shopping facilities. Our grandchildren enjoy the visits to Futuroscope,the lakes and children's parks which are all accessible by car. Charente enjoys a 'micro' climate and is reported to be the second sunniest place in France, next to the Cote d'Azur. From April through to September are considered the best months, however sometimes the warm weather lingers through to November. We have recently renovated and restored the GITE so that it is comfortable modern and cosy with space for a family of four to relax in comfort.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are in a rural location with access to local amenities including supermarkets, bars, restaurants, within the property you will find a peaceful relaxing location to really unwind.
