Idyllic Country Cottage and Stunning Heated Pool

1 of 31
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Saint-Jean-d'Angely, Charente-Maritime, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Our holiday cottage / gite is situated in Puy Bardon on the edge of the village of Lozay in the Charente-Maritime.
The Charente-Maritime region has a climate second only to the South of France. The micro climate means that we enjoy mild winters and warm, sunny summers making it the ideal holiday destination.
The cottage has two bedrooms with permanent sleeping for four people, however we do provide a double sofa bed downstairs to sleep up to six. If you don't mind sleeping outside there is ample room for a tent(s).
The village is beautiful, peaceful, tranquil and the perfect location to get away from the busy daily life. With only around 150 inhabitants, we are surrounded by corn fields, with a plethora of wildlife including partridges, cuckoos, hares and our four friendly hens Rossi, Lorenzo, Ago and TK.
There are many signed walkway...

Stewart & Alison were the perfect hosts providing the perfect gite. A supremely comfortable property with a great pool area and the most wonderful gardens with numerous places to sit and relax. Book it before someone else does!
