Maison de Maître Private Suite

Rougnac, Charente
Bed & Breakfast

Come to recover from the hurly burly, to appreciate your surroundings both indoors and out, to nurture your soul and restore balance


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


This is no ordinary house thanks to owner Madeleine. The specially designed Swedish Gustavian style interiors are dotted with unusual and beautiful antiques and clocks, both French and Swedish. The atmosphere is quiet and serene, colours whites and greys in lime wash and linens; anyone who appreciates beauty will be happy here. You’re surrounded by fecund gardens with mature trees including magnolia, sweet maple, acacia and chestnut; nothing to disturb you but sweet birdsong. Sleep peacefully (the private suite even has its own courtyards), wake to breakfast on the veranda, stroll the grounds to discover very rare Skudde sheep.

Beautiful house in a quiet rural area, the kind you do not want to leave in a hurry..Peaceful and calm...... I loved it there. Jo and Madeline were great hosts and sometimes, just sitting in the grounds around sunset was enough to make you feel renewed.

Local points of interest from Jo Lee

  • Your private suite comprises a large room with king bed overlooking the gardens and fields, an ensuite bathroom with bath and freestanding shower and a private sitting room off a small corridor. Note: There is a 20E supplement for a single night stay
  • This is Brocante country - everyday in the summer there are brocantes and food markets for you to visit. Sample the atmosphere, enjoy the food, go shopping for french antiques - we can tell you where to go & provide a local paid guide to show you around
  • Angouleme is the centre of fun in the region with the yearly coming festival, vintage car rally and so much more - the old town is stunning with lovely restaurants and the les halles and victor hugo food markets as well as the main line tgv to paris
  • Lots of restaurants to choose from within a reasonable drive whether you prefer a working man's menu de jour in a brasserie or something more 'michelin'. Most of the food markets have a variety of vendors and restaurants on market days
  • We are a short hop by car from the dordogne border giving access to the beautiful towns of Brantome, Riberac, Aubeterre, Perigeaux, as well as to the west the wine country from Cognac and Bordeaux. Isle de Re is just over 2 hours drive if you fancy the sea
  • Villebois lavalette is our lovely local town with a lovely saturday market, several restaurants, boulangerie, butchers and the local super market - you can go round the castle set high on the hill and look out over the rolling valleys of the charente
