A tranquil haven close to the golden beaches of Royan

Our home is a comfortable, modern 3 bedroom detached bungalow, set in a quiet location on the outskirts of Royan. The central entrance opens onto a hallway providing access to a large lounge/diner, kitchen/ breakfast room, shower/toilet room, additional bathroom and 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom. The lounge with south east facing window and French doors has freeview British TV, 2 leather sofas, 2 armchairs and2 large square pouffes. To one corner is a round dining table which extends to seat up to 8 people. A brick fireplace houses a wood burning stove which makes the whole house very cosy in the winter. At the end of the hall you’ll find the large breakfast room and adjoining well equipped fitted kitchen, which has microwave, electric fan oven, dishwasher, American fridge/freezer and induction hob. The kitchen window overlooks the garden. The dining area has French doors onto a decked terrace in the rear garden, which is laid to lawn with shady trees. The enclosed rear garden is very private and overlooks farmland on two sides. The bungalow, has secure fencing/walls and garden on all sides, plus plenty of parking space on the gravel driveway. It is double glazed and all electric, with internet, Wifi, telephone.
David is an amateur beekeeper and there are two hives in the furthermost corner of the garden. As we are surrounded by farmland the bees travel off in that direction. We have never experienced any problems and have had many outside meals with friends and family, including our grandchildren. However, we mention it as we understand some people may not be comfortable bees in the garden. PLEASE NOTE : We also have a very well behaved chocolate labrador (female , spayed) who normally travels with us, therefore we are primarily interested in pet friendly house swaps . We would however, be open to a pet care swap option.
