Secluded Holiday Villa with Private Pool

Our villa is situated in the pretty countryside of St George de Coteaux in a quiet lane used by the cows that are taken for milking twice a day from the nearby farm. Having said that, you are not stuck in the middle of nowhere as a three minute drive takes you right into the attractive Roman town of Saintes, where you'll find all you need in the way of bars, shops and restaurants to while away the time.

Great for a relaxing holiday by the secluded pool, where you are not overlooked by neighbours. Pool area faces south getting the sunshine from morning to late evening.

Private swimming pool 10x5 Metres with sun loungers, umbrella, electric sun shade, and table and chairs. Plot size 1200M2 with well-kept garden.

Local Area

The town attracts tourists who come to see the amphitheatre and the many Roman remains, and in summer boat trips can be taken from the arch of Germanicus along the river Charente.

For those who prefer a day on the beach, the Atlantic coast can be reached in twenty minutes with its many islands that attract sun worshippers. At the villa you will find lots of information on the various beaches, some safe and sheltered, ideal for children or others on the Cote Savage with much larger waves ideal for surfers.

At the villa you'll find many suggestions for day trips for all the family. Whether you like zoos for the children, chateaux, wine tasting, or just visiting the many interesting old towns and villages of the area, you'll not be stuck for things to do.

Try a visit to Cognac where many of the houses are blacked by alcohol fumes. Visit the distilleries for a guided tour to see how the Cognac is made and blended followed by a tasting afterwards. La Rochelle, 2nd sunniest town in France is perfect for a day trip.

We recommend the best holiday experience of all, relaxing by the sunny pool area that's sheltered and peaceful. Enjoy a barbecue and have your meal in the sunshine or under the electric sunshade, the choice is yours and here it's endless.

Family parties and couples only please, unless by prior agreement.

Please note, due to the close proximity of the swimming pool to the bedrooms and lounge, we consider this property unsuitable for families with babies or toddlers. We are therefore unable to accept bookings from families with non-swimming infants under five.

The Poitou-Charentes region

Tourism in Charente Maritime is one of the main sectors of activity today, in an area that has a threefold attraction with the Atlantic coast, and variety of towns, pretty villages and fully-preserved countryside. The region also provides a wealth of history and has manor houses, castles, chateaux of quality in surprising numbers along with many archaeological treasures.

For those with a mind to be out and about exploring this interesting area, much time can be spent exploring the many islands that can easily be reached in under an hour by car. Aix can be reached by a 20 minute boat trip from Fouras. It is approx. one mile long, no cars allowed, and perfect to explore on foot, bicycle or horse drawn carriage. The larger islands of Oleron and Isle De Re are rewarding place to explore by car.

Saintes

Our villa is situated in a narrow lane which only a few locals drive down each day to reach their houses. To the front of the property are the woods and farmlands, where three crops rotate each year, barley, maize and sunflowers.

Take bikes if you have them to explore the almost traffic free lanes, or walk down the footpaths beside the fields if feeling the need for some exercise.

Below are a few of our recommendations for day or half day trips.

Cycle or drive to Taillebourg, pretty place on the river with bar, great view of the countryside from the high up fort.

Visit The Roche-Courbon, described as Sleeping Beauty's Castle, five minute drive away.

Visit the chateaux at Creznannes thirty minute drive away.

See the Brandy being made at Hennessy and Martel distilleries at Cognac.

Motor boat hire or day trips in high season on the river at Saintes.

Saintes daily markets, Roman history and amphitheatre.

Canals by boat or boat trips at La Marais Poitevin.

Seaside at Royan

Seaside at St Palais s Mer

Futuroscope near Poitiers, great for kids and adults alike.

The Monkey sanctuary near Poitiers.

Zoo at La Palmyre

Many more leaflets and brochures on places to visit at the villa.
