Chalet | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Set amongst Oaks, Acacias and Pines in the heart of the Poitou-Charentes countryside in the medieval market town of Bressuire lies a retreat for discerning holiday makers. A base from which to explore the region, take in the scenery and enjoy the numerous attractions all within one hours drive.
We are a small family run business in rural France which is the dream and reality of myself Robert and my wife Amanda to offer what we feel most people are looking for in a holiday - beautiful surroundings, friendly people and a warm family atmosphere. The chalet is on a campsite which is ideal for children to explore and for parents to be sure they are safe. We offer a more personal approach than that of larger complexes.
Every morning in high season you can place an order for freshly baked baguettes and croissants and I deliver them direct to your door the following morning. For further provisions there are supermarkets within a five minute drive and the town is a twenty minute walk around a beautiful lake. Our family run site is conveniently situated as a base from which to either explore this beautiful region of France or spend the day relaxing in a peaceful secluded haven.
