Location description from owner

The Poitou-Charentes region

The Charente Maritime enjoys fantastic weather! The Charente Maritime is the second sunniest region of France, after the Mediterranean; we enjoy a quite superb micro-climate. We also have short but cold winters - so we have the best of both worlds!

Dining alfresco and enjoying the long warm evenings while you are on holiday is the stuff memories are made of...

Brives-sur-Charente

The surrounding area has a great deal to offer from the buzzing town of Cognac (lots of cafes and boutique shops, not forgetting the world-famous distillery tours - Hennessy, Otard, Remy-Martin, Martell and Camus!), to the beautiful ancient towns of Pons and Saintes. Weekly local markets are held in Cognac, Pons and Saintes. There are a multitude of local restaurants and bars all within an easy drive. Some are (luckily!) only about 15 minutes by bike.

The beautiful beaches of St George-de-Didonne and St Palais-sur-Mer are a 30 minute drive way and La Palmyre Zoo (one of the biggest zoos in Europe with over 1600 animals to delight all the family) is about an hour's drive.

Other 'bits':
Post Office: Brives sur Charente.
Local shops: Salignac, Perignac, Dompierre and Rouffiac.
Supermarkets: Cognac, Pons or Saintes.
Cash point: Chaniers and at all local supermarkets.

“Quiet and relaxing”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2014

Great for youngish kids ours are (7 and 9). Our kids were a bit disappointed that the pool didn't open until 10.30am but it was fine, the table tennis, play area and almost daily bakery van made up for it.. A lovely pool area and friendly hosts brilliant for letting us know what was on in the local area and directions etc. They don't offer the evening meal during high season which was quite understandable but a bit of a shame.

Thank you for your thoughtful comments. We are sorry that your children were a little disappointed that the pool opened at 10.30am, after the robot's daily cleaning cycle. The pool's opening times are clearly communicated to all guests several months before their stay commences. As your children were rarely out of the pool each day, we can only assume that they loved it!

“Fabulous - would go back again!”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2014

As a family who do not enjoy busy holiday destinations, enjoy our own space but still have a couple of families to engage with this is perfect. Gite was clean, spacious and private enough, pool, table tennis table and other facilities were great and although the setting was quiet it was near enough to Cognac and other places worth visiting. We stayed in the B and B for the last night - couldn't fault it! Phil and Glyn are available to offer advice and jump lead (!) when necessary and work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure everyone has a good holiday. Having visited several areas and properties over the years this us the only one we would really like to return to.
