Our self catering accommodation in Chabanais, known as “The Old Notaires”, will sleep up to 9 persons and provides the ideal base for exploring the Charente, either house hunting, site seeing or for a family reunion. Its situation in the centre of Chabanais gives access to local shops and restaurants and provides the opportunity to sample authentic French life.
The house was built in 1798, during the French revolution, and retains lots of its classic style and features. The rooms are generous in size and show that this was a high status home when it was built. We have decorated the house in a sympathetic style and furnished it in keeping with its age.

Chabanais is a lively market town in the Vienne valley on the ancient route between Lyon and Saintes on the coast. Each Thursday there is a market in the car park 50 metres from the front door of the house, and each month there is the larger farmers market outside the door. There is a sports complex just across the bridge should you feel energetic, and the local rambling association hold walks each Tuesday departing from the market car park.
Parking is available directly outside the house.
