Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

This region is the second sunniest region of France after the French Riviera. It is renowned for its production of Cognac and also the aperitif Pineau - a mixture of cognac and grape juice! As well as the larger Cognac concerns such as Henessy and Martell, there are many smaller producers who welcome visitors for tastings.

The region is covered with rolling hills of vineyards, interspersed with fields of sunflowers and is the home of Charentais melons which can be bought directly from the fields when in season.

The River Charente winds its way through this department and offers relaxing walks along its banks. Fishing is a favourite pastime here as well as boat trips along the river.

The Atlantic coast has wonderful sandy beaches, many of which are lined with pine forests, such as at La Palmyre where one of the best zoos in Europe can be found. The nearest beach at Royan is only 45 minutes away!

Talmont with its streets full of Hollyhocks is a delight to visit, as is Mornac- sur- Seudre. Both being listed as one of the prettiest villages in France.

La Rochelle and the Ile de Re with its famous bridge are well worth a day trip, as are Bordeaux and St. Emilion in the opposite direction.

La Chapelle- des- Pots between St. Sulpice de Cognac and Saintes is steeped in pottery history and houses a pottery museum and factory. Also nearby at St Cesaire there is an interesting museum of the Neanderthal age. The skull of a woman from this era was discovered here some years ago.

For the young there is a water park at Jonzac and Futuroscope in Poitiers is a cinema theme park and worth a day trip. In fact the list of places to visit and things to do is endless!

Cognac

Cognac is a pleasant town on the Charente river and has a medieval quarter. Here can be found a Chateau where King Francois I was born. The chateau now belongs to the Otard cognac house and is an interesting place to visit.

There are several cafes and restaurants in Cognac mainly round the main square and a cobbled pedestrian area with shops. The Jardin public offers pleasant surroundings for a stroll or a picnic.

There is a small port on the river in Cognac and boat trips, notably on the Dame Jeanne ( a reconstructed wooden boat of former times, used to transport goods along the river) provide a relaxing and peaceful way to enjoy the surrounding scenery.

Hennesy is also to be found along the banks of the Charente and their visits include a short boat trip to the opposite bank to visit the chais which store barrels of cognac.

“A lovely home feeling”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2016

We have just returned from a week staying here and have thoroughly enjoyed it. We travelled from the UK with a stop over in Le Mans, a week here and then 2 nights in Paris. It was the perfect family break we needed. Although there is lots to do on the area, we chose to have family time around the pool and in the grounds most days. The security of the gated private grounds meant we were not disturbed and the children could play safely. The added bonus of the pool being alarmed gave us peace of mind with a younger children with us. Our children played football, rounders and generally exploring the big field area behind the pool. The house itself is farmhouse style with lots of character and personal touches that made it feel more like a home than a cold rental facility. There were spaces we did not use but it offered the space should it be needed for private reading, eating, relaxing etc. There are pool floats provided along with nice sun lounger cushions. We would stay again, having not found any issues with the property.

Owner's reply: Hi Mark thank you so much for your positive review. I am so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay at 'Clos Fleuri ' and it was lovely to meet you.

“Fabulous house classically french with everything necessary for a great stay”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2015

We had a lovely stay at Clos Fleuri which was exceptionally well equipped and well managed, would be hard to find a fault. We loved the typically french building which was very spacious and in a very relaxing location. The pool was also a highlight being private and quiet, with a gorgeous surrounding patio where we could eat out every night. Would definitely recommend this property to all our friends. The only downside was we didnt manage to find a local cafe/bar in walking distance.
