A beautiful stone cottage set in private grounds, down its own track surrounded by Cognac vineyards. A 200 year old exterior, with very modern 'Boutique Hotel' style interior with every comfort. Decking and outdoor furniture and use of swimming pool
The time is yours and you will find Bois Blanc very peaceful and relaxing as we are away from roads, people, phones, cars. Please respect this while you are here. Sorry no pets and no smoking in the cottages.

I am a 40 something, ex Army Major who moved to France for a lifestyle change, to restore an old stone house, and offer top quality self catering holidays. I also run a small design business mainly involved in 'living space design' and 'website design'. I love my beautiful wife and family, interior design, hot weather, food and exploring different countries (I've been to quite a few with my military service) oh and photography!
I have owned Bois Blanc for 7 years building it up from derelict. I have a house in Tunbridge Wells, where my daughters go to school and I live between UK (Winter) and France (Summer). I took 7 years out of the rat race to get Bois Blanc up and running and found it an inspiring and liberating experience which changed me for good! I have invested a lot in Bois Blanc as I believe that holidays are the most important weeks of the year for you. Everything must be high quality and special, and thats what I have aimed to create at Bois Blanc.
The 3 L's (location) of house buying guided me to Bois Blanc, as it is literally in the middle of the vineyards of the 'Grand Champagne' Cru of cognac (the most prestigious cru). At the end of its own track with no neighbours, Bois Blanc is a peaceful and beautiful setting. It is also within 45 minutes of the magical South-West Coast, were I spend lots of our time. Summers here are always good and one can use the pool until the end of September. I love the Charente region as its is largely undeveloped and unspoiled. Time has stood still here and you rarely see another English person; yet there is lots to see and do. The famous islands of Ré and Oleron are easily accessible, as are Bordeaux (for civilisation) and St Emilion (for wine). Finally the cognac here is the best in the world! Bois Blanc was a literal ruin, but this gave me scope to renovate the traditional stone exteriors and then add completely modern interiors. Thus we have all the beauty of an old house with all modern conveniences. Being a designer, I have made the interiors of the Cottage interesting, harmonious and inspiring. I used expensive materials and fittings to make Bois Blanc the best in the region and fitting of your holiday expectations. This is not your average Gite! The Gardens and pool have had the same treatment to give Bois Blanc the luxury of a hotel, without the impersonality and the exclusivity of a villa, without the isolation. Our own not even half finished yet, as for us, its always guests first!
