The Poitou-Charentes region

Situated in the south-west of France. the region is great for walking and cycling , for those keen on exploring the lovely countryside there are plenty of marked cycle routes. It is a fun way to see the beauty of the surroundings.

Great location for a relaxing family holiday and within easy reach of La Rochelle for the beaches and sailing.

The long summer months are ideal for al fresco dining and lazy days.The beaches south of La Rochelle are great for a family day out .In La Rochelle there is a small animal park,great for children,lots of lovely shops and chic boutiques,plentry of restaurants,cafes and a must visit to Ernest icecream shop.A great place to watch the world go by and also keep the children happy.


The nearest village is Vandre, it has a local shop open every day, butchers and pizza takeaway. A 15 minute cycle ride from the house down single track lanes will take you into the village where there is a local outdoor swimming pool open July and August .The local butcher is very friendly and also has a market stall on Saturday ,Tuesday and Thursday in Surgeres.The market is great for practicing your french with the locals.

.Surgeres has many shops,an indoor market,3 supermarkets and some good restaurants and is 10km away.

Plenty of attractions nearby, from the miniature boats at St Savinien(fun for adults and children) to the ancient roman town of Saintes,with its great roman amphitheaters.

"Another wonderful family holiday!"

This was our 2nd visit to La Poulaillerie, we just had to come back as we had such a wonderful time last year. (This is the 1st time I have EVER returned to the same holiday destination, which says a lot!) Our group consisted of 4 adults and 4 children aged 8,7,6 & 3 and the house is pefect for family groups. The swimming pool is delightful and was well used by the children. Tracey is a great owner and sorted a minor probelm we had with spedd and without fuss. She also provided a nice welcome basket which is a nice touch. Would totally recommend and we are very likely to be back in the future.

"Beautiful home."

This is a very spacious attractive house. It was ideal for our extended family; everyone could have their own space. It is very well equipped, even a coffee machine! There are plenty of outside areas and a lovely pool. It is a very rural area which suited us fine but makes a car absolutely essential.
