Set in a peaceful and tranquil position, but less than an hours drive from the airport at La Rochelle or 1hr15 from Bordeaux, this gite is in the grounds of an historic chateau.

Built of stone the accommodation stays cool in the summer and is very cosy in the winter having the benefit of two log burners, radiators in the main rooms and underfloor heating in the bathroom. The gite is very spacious, 75m2, and sleeps 2 people . There is a large double bedroom , kitchen and beautiful vaulted living room. There is also a modern bathroom with large shower cubicle and double basin. You can enjoy a private terrace and also have sole use of the large walled garden.

There are walking routes close by, an equestrian centre within walking distance and a golf course a 5 minute drive away. We have bicycles which can be used to go slightly further afield, maybe to visit the famous stone carvings at Port d'envaux, where it is also a popular spot for river swimming and the hire of kayaks and small boats. We are close to the Roman town of Saintes with historic sites, including the Roman ampitheatre, Arc germanicus, Abbaye au Dames and the Cathedral of St Pierre. The old town and the river are very picturesque with an abundance of bars, restaurants and shops. There is even a small animal enclosure in the town park which has music events in the summer and a christmas market every year.

We live and work at the chateau and enjoy working in the grounds and vegetable garden. We have two miniature sheep and free range hens, which keep us and our guests supplied with eggs (subject to availability!).Within 40 minutes you can reach the main beach at Royan, with many other smaller beaches along the coast line. La Rochelle with its picturesque port and airport is 1 hr away. There are many lovely villages to visit close by and a huge choice of chateaux open to the public. There are plenty of walks around our local area through sunflower, corn fields and woods.

If you are coming by car we are only 10 mins from the A10.

An exceptional success to offer such a neat and welcoming quality of accommodation.

the house is very close to the castle and totally independent. A great refinement in the decoration without unnecessary for a large space where you immediately feel right in place.

Very nice setting to eat at night on the terrace.

ery good reception and a detail of services. Very nice setting to eat at night on the terrace.

Relaxing stay, healing with welcoming hosts and a top-notch cottage (and fresh in the summer!)!

A very nice apartment to live in, in beautiful stones that keep the cool in the summer and the heat in the winter, an extremely relaxing surrounding landscape and a couple of charming owners! The only small point if there was one: install pathways to hang towels in the bathroom :)
