This is a spacious and very comfortable cottage set in the grounds of a 19th century Manor house, tastefully restored. Consists of two large bedrooms, sleeping 5 (plus cot for baby), bathroom, large living room (40m2), kitchen and dining room. Outside there is an al fresco dining/BBQ area and extensive gardens for children to play in, including a tree-house with slide. There is also a large sun-deck area with pool (hexagonal 5m).

The gite is situated in a rural setting close Port d'Envaux and the Charente river, in a small hamlet of 10 houses, just 10 minutes drive north of the historic roman city of Saintes. Local boulangerie : 10-minute walk, local grocery shop in Port d'Envaux : 2-minute drive. The magnificent Chateau de la Roche Courbon is just a 10-minute drive.

Guests really appreciate this ideal central location: 30 minutes from historic Cognac and 30 minutes from Royan and beautiful sandy beaches (45 minutes). The beautiful town of La Rochelle is just under an hour away and you can also spend great days out visiting the unspoilt islands of Ile de Ré, ile d'Oleron, Ile d'Aix and Ile Madame, as well as the famous “Fort Boyard”.

The Charente-Maritime also offers a wide variety of tourist attractions: charming villages, magnificent chateaus, historic forts and gastronomic delights.

For cyclists, there are hundreds of kilometres of cycling paths for mountain bikes and classical bikes going through beautiful pine forests and along breath-taking coastlines.

For the children : several go-ape/zip-wire centres ("acrobranche") , Futuroscope theme park (near Poitiers), various water parks, aquarium in La Rochelle, one of the most well known zoos of Europe at La Palmyre, and of course miles of beautiful sandy beaches....

Take a quick boat trip across the Gironde estuary to visit the beautiful Medoc wine region, or even visit the grand city of Bordeaux, just over an hour's drive away.

The nearest airports are: La Rochelle (50 minutes), Poitiers (1.25 hours) and Bordeaux (1.25 hours). The gite is situated close to the A10 motorway with the nearest exits at Saintes (10 minutes) and Saint Jean d'Angély (20 minutes).
