Description

Our cottage in Chez Guérin is a traditional French village house modernised over the years to create a comfortable, flexible four-bedroom home. Up to six people can be accommodated in comfort.

Outside there are enclosed gardens front and back, offering many sunny or shadey spots to sit out (garden furniture is supplied). Or relax by the private swimming pool (8m x 4m), which is supplied with loungers and parasols.

Chez Guérin is a place to take life easy and enjoy the timeless beauty of the French countryside. But when you're ready to be more active, interesting towns, a range of attractions and glorious beaches are within easy reach.

Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

The River Charente meanders through the countryside only a few minutes from Chez Guérin. Along its banks are pretty little towns, once thriving river ports but now quiet backwaters. Notable are Taillebourg, Port d'Envaux and Saint-Savinien-sur-Charente, all offering pleasant walks along the banks and attractive waterside restaurants and cafes. There are several attractive chateaux and grounds worth a visit, for example the nearby Chateau de la Roche-Courbon.

Further downstream the river loops around the town of Rochefort, site of La Corderie Royale built in 1666 to make the rigging for the warships of the French Navy.Close by is the dockyard where the a reconstruction of the Hermione, the frigate that took Lafayette to fight in the American War of Independence, was built. Guided visits are possible when she is in port. Nearby Marennes is the capital of French (and indeed European) oyster production. Fouras, on a peninsula, has a well-preserved Napoleonic fort and good beaches.

The nearest beaches are about 45 minutes away. A string of pretty, lively (in season) seaside towns stretches from the Gironde estuary northwards, each with clean, spacious beaches set in sheltered bays: Meschers-sur-Gironde, Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, Royan, Saint-Palais-sur-Mer. Further north, the coast becomes wilder - indeed "sauvage", aaaaas its name says - with miles of beach, and sometimes rough seas, backed by pine forests. Alternatively, try the pretty islands of Ile d'Oléron and Ile de Ré, both about an hour's drive. They can be very busy in high season: avoid weekends and public holidays, otherwise you may see little but traffic jams.Inland a tour of one of the major cognac distilleries in Cognac provides an interesting day out. A little further afield, but possible to visit on a day trip, are the vineyards of Bordeaux The major port and industrial centre of La Rochelle with its picturesque medieval harbour, city walls and streets of shopping arcades is an hour to the north.

Saint-Jean-d'Angely

The nearest small town providing all shops and services is St-Savinien-sur-Charente, less than ten minutes away. It also has an open air swimming pool and a boating lake. Boats on the River Charente may also be hired here.

Chez Guérin looks towards two lovely old towns: to its north is the medieval town of St-Jean d'Angély, for centuries a way station on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostella. To the south is Saintes, with its fine amphitheatre dating back to Roman times. Both towns offer a wide range of restaurants, cinemas, entertainments and shops. St Jean d'Angély, less than 15 minutes from Chez Guérin, holds a lively colourful market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.It also has a water park, the Centre Aquatique Atlantys. Saintes, some 20 minutes drive, also holds its market on Wednesdays and Saturdays at the foot of the cathedral.

Excellent walks can be found throughout the area. For instance, the disused railway line that used to run from St-Jean d'Angély to Taillebourg runs just below the house and has been turned into a lovely walking path. The quiet lanes and lightly used roads around Chez Guérin are ideal for cycling. Bring your own bikes or hire in advance from a local company who can deliver to you.
