Description from owner

La Vieille Grange is different in many ways, in offering the best of both worlds all year round in its facilities, its location and in the atmosphere the owners strive to create.

A quality conversion of an old wine producing barn the gite offers privacy, relaxation, views, a large 4 x 6 metre all weather and all year garden room / terrace (with full width, Tecnal high quality sliding glass patio doors), an acre of garden, an 11 x 5 metre swimming pool and all mod cons internally, but at a value-for-money price.

Located in countryside, surrounded by vineyards and rolling Charente Maritime countryside but within 10 minutes of the Gironde estuary (with nature reserve and new bird sanctuary) and quiet marinas, it is within 30 minutes of a nice beach with lots of lovely local places to visit and with easy access to the life of Bordeaux, La Rochelle or even onwards to Biarritz and Spain.

The gite is specifically designed around the needs of couples (or 2 friends !) and the owners Martin and Christopher take pride in welcoming and respecting the diversity of their guests, regardless of background.

The Poitou-Charentes region

Situated in the beautiful Charente Maritime (with hours of sunshine second only to the Cote d'Azur), but in the south of it (where the countryside is more interesting/undulating) and within easy striking distance of the Aquitaine/Gironde, including the Medoc. In the middle of the countryside (surrounded by vines and sunflowers) but within 10 mins of the Gironde Estuary (with nature reserve and new bird sanctuary) and within 30 minutes of the nearest beach.

Semoussac

There are loads of interesting places to visit and things to do (if/when you tire of just lying around the pool during the summer!), including sleepy villages and livelier towns, beaches, chateaux/wine tasting, nature reserves, a new bird sanctuary, outside activities (for those into them!) including fishing, horse riding, walking and bird watching - or just sitting outside bars watching the world go by!

Within easy striking distance are : Chatelallion Plage, La Rochelle, Ile de Ré, Ile d'Oléron, St. Jean d'Angély, Angoulême, Royan, Rochefort, Cognac, Blaye, Saintes, Niort and even Bordeaux all within 1 hour drive.

“What more can be said..”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2015

Chris and Martin were extremely helpful and informative without being intrusive. The booklet provided before arrival, told us everything we needed to know about food, places to see and the best directions yet on how to find the gite. The gite itself was very well equipped, the flowers and welcome pack of food were a really nice touch and very useful as we were late arriving. Surrounding views across the swimming pool and beautiful garden were a delight. The gite is also in a super location for visiting local attractions. We have been using gites for over 40 years and not easily impressed, however, this year we were so impressed we have already booked for next year! Tres bon!

Many thanks for taking the time to write your very kind review - much appreciated ! We look forward to your return visit next year ! Best wishes Chris and Martin

“Everything we wanted - and more!”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2014

We were met on arrival by Chris & Martin, owners of the gite, & welcomed with a hamper of goodies: food for a quick supper & breakfast next day, a bottle of wine & flowers! The house was spacious & very well equiped, including a dishwasher; the garden was huge & beatifully stocked with flowers & shrubs, & well tended; but the pool was the highlight, bigger & better than expected, it was well used on our stay. The location was excellent, within 5 minutes of the A10 motorway (but surrounded by farms & gorgeous countryside), & loads to do around the Gironde estuary. This area abounds in pretty villages, beaches, wildlife, vineyards, as well as the beautiful & historic city of Bordeaux - not to be missed. Little to fault (we won't mention the low beams in the bedroom - ouch!), Martin & Chris go the extra mile to make their guests welcome & comfortable, providing maps & literature so that you make the most of your stay in this lovely place. We look forward to our return visit next summer!

“Pure indulgence - France at its best”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2013

Upon arrival at La Vieille Grange, its tranquility and charm completely captured us and we have returned home fully under its spell. The gite itself is very well equipped and the garden room is a stunning place to chill in the evening with a glass of wine and stunning views of the pool and village in the distance. The pool stayed at a beautiful 28C for the two weeks we stayed and was so very refreshing and needed during the hot days. The air conditioning in the bedroom was also very well received and made the hot sticky nights bearable. La Vieille Grange is a magical place with its beautiful surrounding gardens, lavender & a fig tree standing tall. We took our little dog with us and it was a fully secured garden so we had no worries about her escaping. She even had a holiday romance with the host's cute dog! The hosts Chris and Martin were brilliant too, so helpful and generous but at the same time very discreet and even dog sat for us some nights! Their attention to detail is second to none and recommended the most amazing restaurants and places to visit. The estuary and surrounding villages are all within striking distance, along with the beaches up near Royan and further north. Local markets are held every day in various towns and these were a joy to explore. All in all an excellent holiday, beautiful surroundings, fabulous hosts & a perfect escape for anyone - we will definately return.

“Tranquil,relaxing holiday in excellent accommodation”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

I would recommend this gite to couples looking for a place to recharge their batteries; peaceful, quiet, relaxing. Having sole use of the pool is a big plus. The owners, Chris and Martin, are very helpful and hospitable without being intrusive. Very pretty garden set in the depths of French countryside. Our second visit and we hope to go again.

“Excellent gite in fantastic surroundings”

Reviewed 17 May 2012

Stayed for one week at La Vielle Grange and it wasn't long enough; it was our first visit to the Charante-Maritime area of France and there are so many fabulous paces to visit. The countryside is just gorgeous. As for the gite itself , it was absolutely perfect - so rare to find a rental for just 2 people that gives you your own pool - all the facilities were excellent and the hosts, Chris and Martin, were brilliant. Right from the booking through to the actual stay they were great. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend la Vielle Grange - a definite 5 star holiday!

“Lovely rural gite with an excellent service”

Reviewed 2 May 2012

We really enjoyed our 3 nights stay at La Vieille Grange. The gite looked even better than we expected! Quiet area, nice little hamlet, very friendly service, superb pool and garden, ... Despite the rain (sometimes really heavy), we'll be back in September.

“A splendid gîte with everything as promised and even more ...”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2011

A very quiet and beautiful garden with a marvelous panoramic view ... Well equiped gîte, good accomodation and excellent pool. We really loved it and appreciated the friendly welcome too.

“Just perfect.”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2011

The Gite is charming and comfortable, the location is peaceful and relaxing, Martin and Chris are perfect hosts. Every little detail is thought of, from the welcome pack on your arrival (bit of a life saver if you arrive late) to the compressive 'guide' to how everything in the Gite works, and every detail in-between. You can use the Gite as the perfect quiet get away or as a base for visiting the surrounding areas - we preferred to the first - and the private pool and gardens help to make this one of my favorite places to visit. 10 out of 10.
