The Poitou-Charentes region
Charente Maritime is an area known for many things, its gastronomic fayre, the making of Cognac/Pineau, fields and fields of sunflowers, its deep history and the stunning countryside and beaches to name but a few.
You can have peace and tranquility or you can have the action of Futurscope in Poitiers approximately one hours drive from Bagnizeau. Bordeaux is a must for its art galleries, restaurants and historic buildings not forgetting the fields of vvines producing the world famous wines.

We are approximately 30 minutes drive from the historic Saintes & Angouleme - both with character, things to do and plenty of shopping. Within 30 minutes you would find yourself in Cognac with its world famous distilleries such as Remy Martin & Hennessey - visit one of the Cognac houses for a tour or you can try the local drink of Pineau at many distilleries throughout the villages or even the local Charentaise wine. There are many golf courses within 30 - 45 minutes drive and fishing is also available - hire a boat on the Charente - horse ride, walk or cycle through the beautiful countryside of sunflowers and vines.

"Home away from home"
We're a family of 5, with children between the ages of 7 and 18. We've visited the Old shades several times, also when our children we're a lot younger, and each time it's been lovely. Richard & Nicky always made us feel more then welcome. The swimming pool has been a joy, especially for our children. The hanger is a bonus. It is full of entertainment like a football table, bicycles, skates and more. It's handy on a rainy day, but also really nice on a hot day, because it offers you a bit of shade. The gîtes are nicely decorated with lots of personal touches, which makes you feel your in a home and not a holidayhouse. This summer our children tried the scuba-diving course they offer. It was a great experience. The Charente-Maritime also offers lots of nice cities to visit like Angoulème, la Rochelle and Saintes and the 14 juilliet festivities are always lots of fun in Bagnizeau. We do really recommend this holiday adress to anyone who wants a nice and relaxing holiday away from the larger tourists area and parcs.
Thank you for your lovely comments....hope to see you again
