The Poitou-Charentes region

This area boasts a micro-climate with as many hours of sunshine as the Med. , and one of France's best kept secrets is its wonderful spring and autumn weather. A short drive takes you to the famous medeival port of La Rochelle, or to the ancient Roman town of Saintes or to the lively resort of Royan. The area is rich in history and has lots to see and do at any time of year and for all age groups.

The owner is a writer and an artist (published) and enjoys the space and the uncomplicated way of life in this region. Visit

There are no high-rises here and you can enjoy a quiet holiday all the while being close to lively places to go.

We do guided tours of the area and/or safaris in any region of France.

La Rochelle

There is an excellent zoo at La Palmyre, also a good golf course. The island of Oleron is just a few minutes' drive with cycle tracks and all water sports. La Rochelle is probably the most famous town in this area, along with Fort Boyard where the TV games are held. The Roman town of Saintes is well worth a visit (stunning amphitheatre among other things) and the old military town of Rochefort with its famous fortifications is nearby. Royan is a relatively new town, having been blitzed during World War II, but nonetheless boasts miles of sandy beach and lots of restaurants. Visit the markets, chateaux, picturesque rivers, taste the local wines and eat at a wealth of seafood restaurants. Sporting opportunities are also abundant with cycling, golf, diving and other water sports. Swimming is ideal for young children as the coast is protected by the island; alternatively there are several surfing beaches within a short drive of the properties. Out of peak season we do organized cycling and/or wine-tasting parties. There is an excellent zoo at La Palmyre and the aquarium at La Rochelle is wonderful.
