Crazannes

Originally a barn this beautifully converted luxury, detached gite, has it's own private garden area, sitting amongst trees on the edge of the charming village of Crazannes, just a 5 minute walk from the River Charente.

Just a 10 minute walk is the Chateau de Crazannes, built during the 14th and 15th centuries, the listed Château de Crazannes has been entirely restored and furbished.

It is known as the "Castle of Puss in Boots" because it was owned by the real Marquis of Carabas during the 17th century !!

There is also the the Quarry of Crazannes ( les carrieres de Crazannes) which was a working quarry until the 1950's, it's beautiful white stone exported all over the world - rumor has it that it was used for the base of the Statue of Liberty in New York! An hour's tour will transport you back to the times when all was quarried by hand as you wander this amazing quarry.

Also a pleasant walk is the Chateau de Ponloy at Port d'Envaux this was rebuilt in 1770 on the foundations of a former Renaissance-style castle, Panloy offers an example of the architecture of Louis XV.

At Port d'Envaux you can find a small market every Thursday morning, there is also a wonderful bakery and a couple of restaurants. If you are feeling energetic here you can hire canoes and pedalos in the summer.

"Lovely cottage in great location"

We spent a lovely week at the gite, unfortunately the weather wasn't so lovely but this made us get out more to explore the area. The gite was spotlessly clean on our arrival, and Catherine the owner was there to greet us. The whole property is beautifully and tastefully decorated, with lovely antique French furniture in the bedrooms. The open plan downstairs area was very spacious, and the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need. A visit to the Roman amphitheatre at Saintes is a must, also the aquarium at La Rochelle. The beaches near St Palais sur Mer are excellent, especially the walk through the sand dunes to get there. (Avoid the town if you don't like tourist resorts though!). Unfortunately we didn't get to use the pool much due to the weather, but it's a lovely pool. We went for a walk around Crazannes every evening after dinner, it's a beautiful little village. Only downside is the wifi was quite weak so it was difficult to plan walks, places to visit and check the weather forecast (we normally do this using the internet once we get somewhere and plan our days accordingly), so maybe a few maps or books about the local area would be a good idea (there were however plenty of leaflets for attractions). But overall a lovely holiday in a great house and location, we didn't want to leave!

"What a wonderful find!"

This is a wonderful place to stay! We were made to feel very welcome by the owners upon arrival. Our gite was beautifully restored by the owners and had everything we could have needed. It was extremely clean and well cared for. We enjoyed the gardens. We were fortunate to be there at the peak of the rose blooming season which made this property all the more lovely to live in for a week. There is a pool with very comfortable lounge chairs and dining table. It is as if set in the middle of a garden....most attractive. It is better than the online photos. We could walk for our daily baguette each morning....almost next door. The location of this gite is perfect for walking and biking. Short walk to the river. Convenient location for travel to the Coast and other places. Set up nicely for families with or without children. All in all, I would highly recommend this home. You would not be disappointed.

"Relaxing Family Holiday"

The Gite was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Catherine, the owner and her family were extremely welcoming. The pool area was brilliant, the pool was big and deep which meant lots of fun was had diving in! There is plenty to amuse the children in the surrounding area. My boys aged 5 and 8 loved hiring canoes and motor boats on the river. La Rochelle is only fifty minutes away and is worth a visit. we walked into Port-N'Envaux one day, there are several restaurants in the town and we enjoyed one of our best meals overlooking the river. What can I say, a lovely Gite, in a fabulous area.

"A french gem in a beautiful quiet village"

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful gite, it had everything that you could wish for in a holiday let and catered for all of our family including a young child. It was so well equipped, spotlessly clean and decorated with a rustic french charm. I would highly recommend this accommodation and of all the places I have stayed I think this is definitely the best. Crazannes the village is quiet but charming and a great base for visiting the surrounding area such as Cognac, La Rochelle and Royan.
