Description from owner

Rustic French farmhouse feeling 4 bedroom cottage with two en-suites and outdoor swimming pool. This property has been restored over the last ten years and has aspects of both modern and traditional French life. Ideal for a family holiday around the pool or a walking holiday to simply get away from it all, this is the ideal type of holiday for you. The village is small and traditional, river just 5 minutes away and the area is renowned for bird watching. This really is just a peaceful place to be.

The Poitou-Charentes region

Going further afield (whilst exploring the local villages on the way) the large town of Saintes can provide anything else you might need and is only 20 minutes drive. The governing town of Rochefort and Cognac, famous for its local tipple, which you can try if you visit are just 40 minutes away. The historic and beautiful city of La Rochelle is just an hour away. There are many fantastic beaches within 40 minutes and the mussel and oyster island of Ile de Oleron, and a bit further just beyond La Rochelle is Il de Re with great beaches and many water activities. If you take your travelling up to an hour and half to 2 hours then you can reach Bordeaux, which offers so much to see both new and old and make the trip longer by visiting a couple of the vineyards along the way.


The village is typical of what you would expect in the French countryside with a local bar and restaurant (shut in August), butcher and baker (with excellent pain au chocolat, but shut in August) all within a 200m. Walks in the fields and down to the river are also on your doorstep, taking in the churches, the nearby Chateau and Petanque pit if you fancied a game. Crazannes is also famous for its stone which is perfect for sculpting and on certain days there are activities in the local quarries to let you have a go at this, apparently it is the stone that was used as the base of the Statue of Liberty.

Walking down the river to the small village of Port d'Envaux you can see a number of the old houses that were used to store Cognac and other fine drinks and enjoy a couple of the restaurants. The other way down the river you get to the Saint Savinien, a picturesque town that quite often holds local markets and events.

“Fabulous Family Holiday”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2012

We have been coming to this cottage for the past 10 years and are looking forward to our 11th visit in two weeks time! We have been on our own as a family of 5, an extended family of up to 10, and with friends at one point squeezing in 12 of us, but don't tell Mr Haig! The minute we drive in the gates we feel we are coming home and we relax immediately. The cottage is large, with good facilities, large kitchen with everything you need, dinning room, comfy sitting room, tv and cd player, washing machine and french sunshine to dry the clothes in an hour. The pool is a must on the very hot days and even the rainy ones, and the lights make a midnight swim good fun. The village is very quiet, with only a butchers and the nearest bread is the campsite 5 minutes walk away, the nearest supermarket is approx 15 minutes, so a car is a must. There are plenty of places to visit, Saintes is lovely, La Rochelle, beautiful beaches and the river is only a small walk away with boats, swimming and good restaurants. We come back year after year because we love the cottage, the people in the village, the surrounding countryside and the fantastic pool.
