The child friendly, self catering gites are set in a peaceful, rural location, 6 miles east from St Jean D’Angely in the Charente Maritime region of south west France.
We are an easy 1 hrs drive from the coast from La Rochelle down to Royan and all the beaches in between. All major facilities such as supermarkets and banks can be found a short 10min drive away in St Jean D’Angely. The town also has a great selection of restaurants.
All beaches, just 1hr away.
We are just an easy drive to the coast, beaches and the famous coastal resorts of La Rochelle, Royan and Rochefort. Its also less than an hour to the inland towns of Angouleme, Niort and the area around Poitiers, so we are very centrally located for the whole Charente Maritime Region. Closer to our gites, cottages and villas you will find Cognac, Saintes, St Savinien all within just 30mins drive.
We are well served with airports. Our closest is La Rochelle at about an hour away then Poitiers and Bordeaux at 1hr 30. Guests have also used Nantes and Limoges airports at about 2hrs away.
The ferry ports to the UK and Ireland are also within a comfortable drive. Roscoff and St Malo are just 4hrs away, Caen and Cherbourg at 6hrs and Calais and the tunnel at 8hrs. We can also offer you a 20% discount code for any Brittany ferry crossings.
We fell in love with this region of south west France not only for its
superb beaches, historic towns and beautiful rural countryside
but for the relaxed way of life, fantastic food and of course, the
wine. We share all our knowledge with our guests over a glass of the local tipple and many return again and again and become friends.
