The Poitou-Charentes region

You could spend your days lazing by the pool reading a book followed by aperitifs and a barbecue but it would be a shame not to explore this beautiful region so spend a morning wandering the cobbled streets of La Rochelle then head to Andrés famous seafood restaurant for an amazing platter of 'fruits de mer' ,or cross the Charente in a boat on a tour to the vast warehouses filled with barrels of Hennessy Cognac and have a taste of this liquid nectar, row a boat along the inland waterways of the marais poitevin or wander around the many local markets and pick up some fresh fish and salad for your dinner....

The Charente Maritime region is one of four departments of the Poitou Charente region of western France

It is famous for its Cognac and Pineau production with the town of Cognac and all its distilleries (Hennesey, Martell and Otard to name just a few) just a 30 min drive from Hameau des Martres cottages and villas. There are many tiny villages and hamlets to explore. Quaint chateaux are common. Local delicacies include mussels in cream, goats cheese, honey and cake with angelica.

Futuroscope at Poitiers, the wine chateaux of Bordeaux, Angouleme, Niort and Rochefort are also all within travelling distance. There is the renowned animal conservation park at La Palmyre near Royan and a superb aquarium at La Rochelle to name just a few of the things there are to visit.

Le Gicq

The Hameau des Martres property is set on the outskirts of the village of Le Gicq, apart from an elderly French couple who live in the adjacent property there is no one else to disturb your French country holiday.

Swimming, fishing, horse riding, golf, tennis and rowing are all available during the summer months in the local area. There are also many lovely country walks all year round. The landscape is gently rolling and ideal for cycling. The popular seaside resorts around La Rochelle such as the beaches of Fouras and Chatelaillon and La grand plage on the Ils de oleron are only about an hours drive away and the historic towns of St Jean d'Angely and Saintes (roman ruins) are even closer.
