Location description from owner

The Poitou-Charentes region

Soak up the sunshine in the South West of France, and enjoy the local Pineau or Cognac. Our gites are a little haven away from the hustle and bustle of modern life but close enough for those little comforts.We are between Cognac and Bordeaux, within easy access of Angouleme, Bordeaux and La Rochelle airports, right in the heart of the Poitou-Charentes region (easy access from the A10) and close enough to the coast for a relaxed day trip.The Charente Maritime region has a lot to offer, with plenty to do and see nearby. We are in easy reach of Cognac, St Emillion, Bordeaux and La Rochell.Many interesting villages nearby including St Savinien,on the River Charente which has a boating lake popular with adults & children, kayaking hire on the River, bike hire & walks and many excellent local restaurants from family-friendly to gourmet restaurants. Superb clean sandy beaches at St Georges de Didon just 45 mins easy drive and the Island of Ile d'Oloron (ideal for good surfing and/or wind-surfing)

Jonzac

A perfect base to "chill out" and relax from the outside world, read, swim,relax, an ideal area also for walking and cycling (bring your own bikes or hire them locally in the village). Horse-riding is also popular locally just 2kms away for both the beginner or more experienced rider and treks can be arranged in advance.Jonzac (3 kms) is a stunning medieval town, with an imposing 15th-century château and offering a number of shops, bars etc and 3 supermarkets to ease the search for food and drink. In addition it has thermal baths offering extensive treatments, and a swimming complex with a water slide, tropical lagoon, wave pool, bubble spas and saunas, indoor and outdoor pools, as well as offering various beauty and relaxation treatments.Next door is the Casino for thoses wishing to have a flutter. The "Bas Du Loisir" at Jonzac offers sailing, swimming in the lake (With life guard) and many attractions including archery, rope walk etc., plus and excellent restaurant (BBQ style).During the summer there is a "Marche Nocturne" every Wednesday evening complete with live entertainment, an ideal way to sample some of the local delicacies, a Pineau and maybe a little Cognac as well.Hot air ballooning is very popular in the early morning or late afternoon/evening for the more adventurous why not book a ride and take off from our gardens!

“I love La Pommeraie and will be going back again and again”

Reviewed 18 May 2011

My husband and I stayed in Pineau, one of four gites at La Pommeraie. It was perfect for us. The gite slept 6 but we used only the downstairs suite as I have some mobility problems. The rooms were simple but beautifully decorated, with a real home-from-home feel with lovely comfortable furniture and a very well equipped kitchen. The terrace at the back of the house was very private and a brilliant place for eating or sunbathing. The pool is magnificent being really big and the perfect place for a dip after a day out sight-seeing in the local area. The area is fantastic, a real hidden gem. So many places of interest, from the big famous cognac houses to the little producers as well as being near to Bordeaux and its famous wineries. The beach at Royan and St George de Dindonne are fantastic, as well as being wheelchair accessible. La Rochelle was superb as was the Aquarium. There was so much to see we were spoilt for choice. As to the local restaurants, well few could beat La Clé des Champs, just five minutes drive from La Pommeraie, food cooked over an open fire in the bar. It was sublime. Local delicacies included snails, estuary fish and of course the famous fois gras. Our Welcome at La Pommeraie was the best we have ever had on any of our numerous visits to France. Penny and Hugh are the perfect hosts, even taking us to one of the best wineries in the Northern Bordeaux region of Blaye. We feel like we have found our perfect holiday home and will be returning again and again.
