The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
Soak up the sunshine in the South West of France, and enjoy the local Pineau or Cognac. Our gites are a little haven away from the hustle and bustle of modern life but close enough for those little comforts.
We are between Cognac and Bordeaux, within easy access of Angouleme, Bordeaux and La Rochelle airports, right in the heart of the Poitou-Charentes region (easy access from the A10) and close enough to the coast for a relaxed day trip.
The Charente Maritime region has a lot to offer, with plenty to do and see nearby. We are in easy reach of Cognac, St Emillion, Bordeaux and La Rochell.
Many interesting villages nearby including St Savinien,on the River Charente which has a boating lake popular with adults & children, kayaking hire on the River, bike hire & walks and many excellent local restaurants from family-friendly to gourmet restaurants.
Superb clean sandy beaches at St Georges de Didon just 45 mins easy drive and the Island of Ile d'Oloron (ideal for good surfing and/or wind-surfing)
A perfect base to "chill out" and relax from the outside world, read, swim,relax, an ideal area also for walking and cycling (bring your own bikes or hire them locally in the village). Horse-riding is also popular locally just 2kms away for both the beginner or more experienced rider and treks can be arranged in advance.
Jonzac (3 kms) is a stunning medieval town, with an imposing 15th-century château and offering a number of shops, bars etc and 3 supermarkets to ease the search for food and drink. In addition it has thermal baths offering extensive treatments, and a swimming complex with a water slide, tropical lagoon, wave pool, bubble spas and saunas, indoor and outdoor pools, as well as offering various beauty and relaxation treatments.
Next door is the Casino for thoses wishing to have a flutter. The "Bas Du Loisir" at Jonzac offers sailing, swimming in the lake (With life guard) and many attractions including archery, rope walk etc., plus and excellent restaurant (BBQ style).
During the summer there is a "Marche Nocturne" every Wednesday evening complete with live entertainment, an ideal way to sample some of the local delicacies, a Pineau and maybe a little Cognac as well.
Hot air ballooning is very popular in the early morning or late afternoon/evening for the more adventurous why not book a ride and take off from our gardens!

"A lovely located gite which is very well equipped."
The veiws are fabulous and its in a very peaceful area. The Gite has everything in it you could possibly need and more which is ideal for larger families. The owners were very welcoming and when we had a few problems with the facilities they were quickly sorted.The pool is lovely and the hot tub is a welcome after a day sight seeing. There are alot of toys for children and our dog was made most welcome with his own paddling pool!

"If paradise is peace and quiet with wonderful views of vineyards and a pool to cool off in, this is paradise"
We booked in to stay here because they have a pool for me and with permission will take dogs.
We enjoy the warmth but want plenty of shade to cool down in so havng a large out door space in the shade was pefect for us and the dogs. The other guests were happy to have our dogs about and our patterdale really enjoyed the shade after a walk around the vineyards at the back of La Pommerai.
The gite was very comfortable with really comfy chairs to relax in and there was english tv to watch. Having the air conditioning made for really cool evenings which meant a really good nights sleep. Catering was easy with good choice of shops in Jonzac and plenty of equipment to cook with in the kitchen although after we found La Cle des Champs and Laurents fantastic cooking over oak fires we did no do much cooking.
Exploring the area was super we loved St emillion and Blaye and the wine tastings, Hugh recommended Sebastians and the car filled with alot of Chateau Mont Conseil which we thoroughly enjoyed on Christmas day.
