Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the Ital­ian Re­nais­sance in the 16th cen­tury, the pop­u­lar gar­den de­sign known as the gar­den à la française is a for­mal af­fair with a clear sym­me­try through­out the land­scap­ing and po­si­tion­ing of foun­tains and stat­ues.

This dig­ni­fied, rather or­nate flair can be seen through­out the won­der­ful gar­dens that sur­round this grand prop­erty near Ven­touse in the sunny depart­ment of Char­ente. The 1.5ha park is sep­a­rated into a num­ber of zones which range from vast lawns that flank the sweep­ing drive up to the house to more in­ti­mate land­scaped spa­ces. There is also a large ter­race for al fresco din­ing and a swim­ming pool and pool house.

The char­ac­ter prop­erty it­self of­fers plenty of space, in­clud­ing four bed­rooms, sev­eral sit­ting rooms, a li­brary and a light-filled stu­dio. prop­er­ties-in- char­
