The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region
The Charente Maritime is one of four departments in the Poitou Charente region. It has hundreds of miles of safe sandy beaches, protected by the islands of Oleron, Ré and Aix. Our properties lie centrally within the Charente Maritime and so create an ideal base from which to discover this beautiful region. Miles of quite roads make it a joy to drive. Country lanes and tracks through woodlands and fields over gently rolling countryside make it ideal for walking and cycling too. The fields are filled with sunflowers, wheat and maize. Our property is just a few miles away from St Jean d'Angely, a beautiful market town, full of history, great restaurants and a market twice a week. We are just 30 mins away from Cognac with its distillery tours, Saintes and its Roman ampitheatre and Saint Savinien with it's boating lake for families; La Rochelle is our county town, and Frances third most visited city, just an easy 1 hr drive away - famous for its seafood restaurants (including a 2* michelin rated one) beautiful architecure and great shopping as well as a superb family friendly aqaurium and the renowned Ernest le glacier. It also boasts a beach too, just a short walk from the centre of town. Royan with the amazing La Palmyre animal park, endless sandy beaches and great restaurants is also just an hour away, in fact all the great beaches can be reached in an hours easy drive along quiet roads. For those wine lovers we are also just a 1hr30 drive from the centre of Bordeaux and it's world famous vineyards.
With the second most sunshine hours after the south coast - it' the perfect location for an amazing family holiday.
St Jean d'Angely
The region is famous for its Cognac and Pineau production. There are many tiny villages and hamlets to explore. Quaint chateaux are common. Local delicacies include mussels in cream, goats cheese, honey and cake with angelica. Swimming, fishing, horse riding, golf, tennis and rowing are all available during the summer months in the local area. There are also many lovely country walks all year round. The landscape is gently rolling and ideal for cycling.
Our cottages are set on the edge of a rural hamlet. Very peaceful and relaxing and with lovely views out over open fields. You could spend your whole holiday discovering all the wonderful places there are to visit or spend it relaxing on site sipping a glass of chilled wine and read a book whilst your children play in the safely enclosed garden area and make new friends with the other children. Most of our families do a little bit of both. We have plenty of activities going one each week, you can choose to join in or not but as all parents know, when the children are occupied and happy, it makes your holiday a lot more relaxing !
