Private gardens and huge shared grounds. Huge shared solar-heated pool, all fenced and gated, kiddy play area, very child friendly and security-conscious. Private gated parking. All mod cons - dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, satelite TV, BBQ, garden furniture. Cots, linen , high chairs can be hired. Edge of village. Very popular - some of our guests return every year.
Reduced mobility - there is a shower room and WC downstairs (with a step) and a traditional Charentais boat-bed bed in the living room. In these old Charentes houses a boat-bed was found in the living area till well after WWII when the tradition started to change. A thick curtain can be drawn around the bed if required; the living room is very large and it works well.

Beaches and good, long, hot summers ! Family - friendly accommodation where your children will be safe.
The Charente Maritime boasts a climate almost as good as the Med, and summers are usually long and hot. There are miles of gorgeous beaches nearby and the whole area is loaded with things to do and places to go ... and yet it is still quiet and rural with the bustle kept to the larger towns of Royan and La Rochelle.
Our village has a small post office and general store, plus a bakery. These are just a 5 min stroll through the woodland behind us. A mile and a half away are several more shops, and all main shops and banks are in Marennes, 4 kms.
