The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Deux Sevres region is situated in the south west of France, famous for its micro climate and unspoilt countryside where driving/riding is actually a pleasure. There are many places to visit of historical interest and we are very centrally located to places like Cognac, Bordeaux, La Rochelle,Tours, Royan and Futurescope. We are also near to The Marais Poitevin or "Green Venice" where you can go cycling or walk along the many canals. You can also go boating either rowing yourself or you can pay somebody else to do the hard work for you. There are also lots of cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops in the villages.


Aigonnay is rurally situated just outside the suburbs of Niort giving you the best of both worlds.

There is an ice skating rink just 25 minutes away from us and is very reasonably priced. Also in the summer months there are lots of Brocantes and Farmers Fayres in neighbouring villages where you can buy anything ranging from fruit/vegetables to furniture and are always worth a visit.

Also closeby is the historical military town of St. Maixent with its barracks and museum, which also has weekly markets. The annual Children of the World Festival is also held here.

"A enjoyable stay with great hosts"

We stayed at this barn conversion in Aug 2013. The accomomodation was very comfortable upstairs, although we found the down stairs a little bit too dark.
However, the stay was very enjoyable in a great rural location with an excellent pool, complete with night time lights! The hosts are very friendly and were great company. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the pool and play areas and had a great time. We relaxed and went with the "french time" flow.
BBQ outside your door and sit and enjoy.

"Totally relaxing !!!!!"

If you love rural France and want to get away from it all, this is the place for you. We have 2 young girls who adored the heated pool- which is fantastic. There is a play area for children with swings and slide, as well as table tennis and table football games area. The hosts are very hospitable and couldn't do enough for us. We picked fruits from the meadow and baked our own deserts.The 2 bed gite was very authentic and well appointed with everything we needed. Evenings were spent outside with friends enjoying a glass of wine and good conversation.... we even saw shooting stars! Totally relaxing... would highly recommend. We're already booked for next year!
