About the home
This beautifully converted stone property offers a very spacious gite equipped with all the modern conveniences and retaining character features such as exposed stone walls, oak beams and a double-height entrance hall.
The property has a large open plan layout designed perfectly for family holiday life, as well as generous sized bedrooms and bathroom. It is equipped with everything you may need and opens onto a private terrace and a shared “play” garden.
The secure walled pool garden is always a favourite with the kids and is equipped with sun-loungers, parasols and lots of inflatable pool toys. The English owner lives opposite in the courtyard providing as much or as little help as you wish while tending to the gardens and pool.

The Poitou-Charentes / Vendee / Deux Sevres region
There are varied attractions at all points of the compass – and all within 90 minutes by car. La Vallée des Singes (the valley of the monkeys) is universally popular with all the family and only a 40 minute drive – which still leaves time in the day to return ‘home’ and enjoy the pool in the afternoon. Futuroscope at Poitiers is a 60-minute journey and is better suited to families with kid’s aged 12+ (ish).
Niort (45 mins) is a delightful large market town with all the normal offerings, but if you only do one ‘town day’ during your holiday, La Rochelle (90 mins) is a must. There are fantastic shops, an incredible patisserie, a great ice cream parlour and the old port ringed by seafood restaurants. Then after lunch (if you’ve got the energy), there is the Aquarium right in centre ville.
The seaside at St Palais and glitz of Royan are only 90 minutes by car; distillery tours and a beautiful golf course at Cognac only take 60 minutes and Melle, with its charming centre ville, Friday morning market and the silver mines to visit, is just up the road.
The Chef Boutonne area
Chef-Boutonne is a delightful small market town with everything you need if a lazy holiday by the pool is all you seek. There’s a great restaurant/bar, a pizzeria, two supermarkets, three boulangeries, a butcher, a newspaper shop, a wine and fresh coffee shop, playgrounds, a fishing lake (with ducks who love yesterday’s stale bread!) and even a very French ‘cave des vins'.
