About this location
The Poitou-Charentes region
Les Tilleuls nestles at the foot of the hill in the small hamlet of Echebrune in the Charente Maritime region of south west France. The Charente Maritime region is renowned for its sunny, mild climate and its variety of sights and places to visit. The area is very proud of its hectares of vineyards stretching in the distance producing the world renowned cognac, and also in mid-summer the vivid colours of the sunflowers interspersed with villages of mellow charentais stone and gardens abounding with hollyhocks, wisteria and geraniums. Visit the pretty ports and beaches of the Gironde or venture further to the surfing beaches of the Atlantic, explore the the historic towns of Cognac, Saintes, La Rochelle or Bordeaux or enjoy a round of golf at one of three local 18 hole courses.
Echebrune, with its beautiful hilltop XIth century church, is just 4 miles from the pretty town of Pons which, with its mediaeval keep and pilgrims hospital, provides supermarkets, banks, post office, bars and restaurants and a twice weekly market. Les Tilleuls is also conveniently situated for the old town of Cognac with the houses of Hennessy, Martell, Remy Martin, etc offering fascinating guided tours of their cognac distilleries which, of course, include tastings! The Roman town of Saintes, with its Roman amphitheatre and bustling shopping centre, is also close by as are the beaches around the resort town of Royan. The pretty fishing ports of the Gironde estuary are within 30minutes. For children, visit the renowned zoo at La Palmyre, discover the Chateau des Enigmes at Pons or enjoy a day at the ‘Antilles de Jonzac’ an aqua playground of 10,000 sqm. Or just simply relax, explore the pretty surrounding villages and try Pineau des Charentes, the local aperitif
