Aulagnes Country House
A beautifully elegant and serene country house, Aulagnes sits on the top of a hill surrounded by the vineyards and rolling hills of Charente. Only an hour from Bordeaux, the setting is calm, tranquil and incredibly scenic. The house exudes a warm welcome and a wonderful sense of home, having been lovingly and tastefully restored in recent years. Its living areas are relaxed yet sophisticated while its bedrooms are wonderfully comfortable and full of character. Until recently, a bustling home to a growing family, the house is currently being looked after by Charlie and Olive who share with the owners an affection for this very special place.
Prices: from EUR75 per room B&B
