The vibrant market towns of Sauze Vassais, Lezay and Melle are 10-15 minutes drive and offer a variety of shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

The Poitou-Charentes region

The Poitou- Charentes region of France has one of the mildest climates with an annual average of over 2,000

hours of sunshine with summer temperatures often around mid 30's.

The Deux Sevres department is easily accessed by road and the airports of Poitiers, La Rochelle, Limoges and Angouleme are within a short drive.

The ports of Le Havre, Caen and St Malo are about 5-6 hours drive and Calais 7-8

The area is largely rural and the slower pace of country life provides a welcome contrast to the lively atmosphere of the nearby market towns.

Attractions such as Futuroscope, Marais Poitevin (Green Venice) and La Vallee des Singes (close encounters with monkeys) are all within easy reach.


The vibrant market towns of Lezay , Sauze Vaussais and Melle offer a wide range of shopping, eating and leisure activities including excellent open air heated swimming pools.

There are pretty fishing lakes in nearby Sauze Vassais and Chef Bouton which are great for walking, picnics or BBQs and have play and activity areas.

As well as the local heated outdoor swimming pools the river Charente provides safe family bathing areas, a variety of boat trips and a good selection of water sports.

Melle has several notable Romanesque churches as well as ancient silver mines which are open to the public and once supplied silver to the Kings of France. During the summer the churches throughout the region are the site of free evening events or concerts which usually finish with a buffet of local specialities.

It is easy to get to the pretty towns of Cognac and Jarnac where the main cognac producers are based. These all run guided tours (with tastings) some even include a boat trip.

Many of the towns are Ville Fleurie starred and have pretty landscaped areas with rivers running through them.

The position of Clussais La Pommeraie means that it is an ideal starting point for exploring the area in all directions and it is very easy to get to La Vienne and Charente regions.

"Great family holiday - relaxed and laid back"

We took our 4 children aged 4-12, and our mother, for 7 days here, and had a superb time. The house is large and well laid out, so there was plenty of room for playing, reading, relaxing, napping and so forth. The big garden with the pool let the children cool down in the heat, and then run around getting hot again playing frisbee and tag. Everything we needed for big family meals was there, and it was great to have a washing machine for the children's clothes. Finally, the location is lovely - close to village pools, markets and boulangeries, the fab River Charente, and the beach at La Rochelle. We couldn't recommend it more highly, especially at such a great price, and have already told a lot of our friends about it.

"Excellent accomadation spacious well equiped tastefully decorated"

The gite represents excellent value for money The accomadation is spacious and is equipped with everything you would need and is home from home. The owners responded to every request for details re eating out etc. The only slight crititism is the lack of english channels on the tv. Would definately stay again and would recommend to anyone looking for a good value spacious clean well decorated accomadation.
