The house is great for couples, families, or families sharing.

Further details outdoors

The garden is enclosed and the pool is alarmed. In the barn adjacent to the house you will find 8 bicycles, a cross trainer, inflatable pool toys, an inflatable canoe that you can take to the lakes or the Charente river, tennis and badminton racquets, boules, outdoor table tennis table and portable baby sandpit/pool. The countryside is ideal for cycling in. There's a riding school a few minutes drive or a beautiful cycle ride away and there's a tennis court and football stadium in the neighbouring village. Canoeing is available on the Charente. Fishing and golfing can also be easily organised.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

This region is said to be the second warmest after the Cote d'Azure and certainly when the sun is shining you will find an incredible warmth which lasts late into the evening. The area is rich in romanesque architecture and chateaux. Our village has its own small chateau and 13th century church. The house is well placed for visiting other regions. You could visit the vineyards of Bordeaux or St Emilion, the brandy houses in Cognac and Jarnac, the beach at Royan, a visit to La Rochelle, the 2000 year old cave paintings and much much more. You will find a plethora of information at the house which provides information about a multitude of things to see and do for all age groups.

Mansle

There are festivals organised throughout the year in and around the Charente. The local area also organises a programme of events throughout the summer holidays for children and adults and you are free to join in with any of the activities if you wish. I can obtain a programme and let you have a copy prior to your visit.

Shopping at the markets is commonplace in France and you will find that you can buy fresh fish, mussels, scallops etc. from the fish market, a variety of cheeses from the cheese stall and fresh vegetables and flowers are in abundance. Again, I will provide further information before your holiday. travel.

Based around a restored water mill on the meandering Charente river, is Rejallant. Small beach, canoes, kayaks, evening concerts, children's playground, bar and restaurant.

"Les Trois Fontaines" a large bathing and fishing lake, with beach, set in beautiful natural surroundings of parkland and flowers.
