Les Iris is within easy reach of the local towns of St Jean d'Angely, Niort and Saintes. Larger Towns such as La Rochelle, Rochefort, Angouleme, Bordeaux and Poitiers are between 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours drive away.
The area is ideal for exploring the Poitou Charente region. Rolling hills and very little traffic together with some of the best sunshine in France makes it ideal for walking and cycling. Being at the heart of the Cognac region, numerous distilleries can be found nearby as well as local wine producers who welcome visitors for tastings. Why not try some of the regions aperitif Pineau, which is made from cognac and unfermented grape juice.
Other attractions such as Coulon near Niort in the Marais Piotevin where you can explore its twisty rivers by boat with its marshes and outstanding natural beauty.
The nearby Ile D'Oleron and Ile de Re with its many sea food restaurants, oyster beds, beaches and small colorful villages make a really fantastic day out.
Numerous beaches are found within a relatively short distance, the nearest being Chatelaillon-Plage next to La Rochelle which is about 45 minutes drive, where you will find many beach-side restaurants.
Other beaches such as La Palmyre near Royan are about an hour away.
OR-You can simply lounge around over a glass or two of wine by the pool whilst the BBQ warms up.

"lovely place in the countryside"
located in the french countryside but close to a few small towns and less than an hour away from larger towns like cognac and la rochelle.
falling asleep to the sound of crickets and waking to the sound of bird song is just so nice.
gite has a small tv with UK freesat which is great to have in the evenings.
pat and evelyn are very friendly and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them.
