Further details outdoors

Each gîte has a gas barbeque, an outside table, chairs and a parasol for shade. There is also a lovely summer kitchen area with more tables, chairs and a traditional barbeque made from the old bread oven.

Every gîte has UK satellite TV but we doubt if you will waste much time watching it, as there is so much to do. A library of DVDs, videos and books is also available for guests. We also have a Home Cinema in the Sale de Jour.

The pool area is perfectly situated for all day sunshine and far enough from the gîtes so as not to disturb the other residents. There are plenty of loungers and chairs to spread out over the extensive patio. For your safety, the heated pool conforms to French safety regulations and has an alarm.

The Hot Tub is available when the pool is not in commission.

There is an area for a quiet game of boules or a game of table tennis.

We have a salle de jour, which can be used by all visitors and has the DVD, video and book library. It would make an ideal venue for a party or conference for those who would like to book the whole complex.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

Charente-Maritime is situated on the southwest coast of France and is part of the larger Poitou-Charantes region. It enjoys long hot summers and very mild winters which are so necessary for the production of fine grapes used to make the wonderful wines and Cognac. It is known locally as the 'western Mediterranean' and enjoys the second highest number of sunshine hours in France (after the Cote D’Azur).


The combination of the words "Charente" and "Maritime" help to capture the magic of this department – producing as it does the best from the land with the Cognac grapes, cereal crops and fields of sunflowers – and the best from the ocean with the oysters, mussels and fish. Located with the Atlantic to the west of its 150 mile coastline, the Vendee and Deux-Sevres to the north, the Dordogne to the east and the Gironde to the south, the Charente-Maritime is a magnificent and exceptional part of France.

"What a fabulous place to stay!"

The gites are set in a stunning location around the home of Nick & Chania, who are brilliant hosts and made us feel totally at home. The standard and cleanliness of the gites was absolutely superb, with a wonderful communal area where Nick and Chania host a weekly get-together with all guests invited. The pool was heated and, given the hot, sunny weather we had for 13 days of the 14 day stay, we made full use of it!

The location is well placed to explore Cognac, Saintes, La Rochelle and surrounding areas and a reasonable (50 mins) drive to Fouras, a lovely seaside town close to Rochefort. Saint Jean-d'Angely is the nearest large town with an amazing market in the centre of the old town, some wonderful architecture and several large supermarkets. Aulnay is the nearest town with a supermarket and a reasonable selection of shops and facilities.

Overall, a fabulous holiday!
