The nearest town is Saintes which as well as offering many places to visit with its Roman Heritage, has all your shopping needs.

This attractive, comfortable and very well equipped gite is ideal for family holidays with everything you would need for a young family. Or this peaceful setting is ideal for a quiet get away. Spend the day by the pool or relaxing in the garden. Or visit one of the many beaches most of which are just a 35 minute drive.

With beautiful sunny days throughout the year this makes it a perfect location for walking and cycling and enjoying the surrounding countryside and for visiting the many beautiful towns and villages.

What's in the area?:

With just a 40 minute drive north west to the Atlantic coast you will find the sunny beaches of Fouras and Chatelaillon Plage. And to the south west, still just 40 minutes, there are the beautiful beaches of Saint-Georges-de-Didonne and St Palais-sur-Mer. With many more but unfortunately we haven't visited them all!

With Cognac a 35 minute drive, tours around one of the famous Martell, Hennessy or Remy Martin distilleries are a must.

Just 50 minutes from the beautiful coastal town of La Rochelle, a must for any shopper! La Rochelle has a wonderful ambience with many restaurants bursting on to the pavements. Seafood is of course the speciality. Just 60 minutes to the stunning Ile de Re. With wonderful shops to browse round at Ile de Martin and an amazing choice of pavement cafes and restaurants, all looking on to the harbour.

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.

"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.
