The Poitou-Charentes / Vendee / Charente Maritime 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.

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.
