Description from owner

Just a few hours drive from the ports of Caen, St Malo and Le Havre, and just over an hour from Nantes or Poitiers airports, La Charriere used to be a farm and is now a holiday getaway offering self-catering acccommodation for large groups. With a large heated outdoor pool on-site, sports facilities and bicycles always available, great wines to sample locally and a beautiful landscape to discover all around, there is something here for everyone!

Large groups are accommodated across 2 houses which means plenty of space for everyone. We offer great on-site facilities for guests and there is plenty to do and see in the local area.

The Poitou-Charentes region

Ideal for a scenic cycling holiday, the local area is quiet contryside dotted with villages and towns. Places to visit in the aras include:

Montreil-Bellay: Charming town 1/2 hrs drive away set by the river. Excellent chateau to visit offering tours in English, picnic by the river and view the ancient Medieval town wall. It is a great place to visit.

Rochmenier: 1/2 hrs drive to visit the old Trogolodyte village which is well worth a visit. The cave homes are preserved as a museum - fascinating for all ages. On the way back, visit the Zoo at Doue La Fountaine

Villandry: Beautiful chateau with breath-taking gardens that are famous throughout the world.

Fontevraud: Amazing architecture to be found at the Abbey at Fontevraud, famed for being the burial place of Richard Coeur de Lion ( the Lion Heart himself) and full of French and English History. Nearby Puy de Fou boasts famous medieval style son et lumiere shows which will delight any audience.

Futuroscope: Well worth just over an hours drive to Poitiers, Futuroscope is the thinking man/woman/childs answer to Dinseyland. Lots to see and try and discover.

Saumur, Angers, Chinon: These famous French chateaux towns all all within a 75 minute drive and each is brimming with history and a variety things to see and do; museums, mushroom farms and art gallerys to name but a few!

Argenton-les-Vallees

Guests can cycle to one of the nearby villages for fresh baguette and croissants every morning, or in the evenings to a bar or local restaurant.

Argenton-Chateau is the nearest town (5 mins drive) and has all basic neccessities (small selection of shops) along with a large open air swimming pool and a lake where you can go out on a pedalo. The meandering streets of the town make for a very pleasant afternoon stroll and at dusk there are often otters to be seen around the 'Lac'.

Bressuire is a 15 minute drive and offers a more than adequate selection of supermarkets, restaurants, a town centre market every Tuesday and some wonderful patisseries! There is an old chateau here too, and a bizarre but fantastic antiques and oddities store.

Local vineyards offer wine tasting all year round - we are happy to recommend the best places for a 'degustation'. Try one or two different wines and buy bottles direct from the producer.

“Excellent property! Really well equipped!”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2012

We stayed in La Charriere in July/August with an extended family group of 17 people. It is amazing that such a large group of people ranging in age from 18 mths to 70 years could all enjoy themselves thoroughly in one place. Also one of our party is confined to a wheelchair and this posed no problems as the property is totally accessible. Everything about La Charriere is fantastic, from the peaceful rural setting to the remarkable facilities. The pool is brilliant as is the barn with table tennis, table football, snooker and even a badminton/basketball court for a break from the sunshine or the occasional rainy day. There is a large range of bikes of all sizes available so you can explore the local countryside by pedal power. Internally the gites are very well equipped with all the appliances you could need as well as ample seating and remarkably comfortable beds. The provision of satelite TV with English channels was a bonus to us as our stay coincided with the Olympics. The area is beautiful with lots of lovely villages, magnificent chateaux and vineyards selling gorgeous wine after allowing some generous tasting. Our hosts Paul and Charlotte live on site and were always friendly and extremely helpful. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them.
