Holiday Rental House
Welcome to our home, a typical Charentaise house set in the beautiful countryside of Charente-Maritime near St Jean d'Angély. Located in a small hamlet (about a dozen houses in all) this is the perfect place to get away from it all and simply relax. The house is built from local stone and has been renovated to a very high standard as it is our personal home from home. Beautiful gardens with heated swimming pool. It is the perfect hideaway for those looking for some well-earned peace and quiet. When you do venture out there is plenty to see and do. There are the beaches of Royan and the beautiful harbour town of La Rochelle with its fine restaurants and shops is about an hour away. Cognac is a mere 15 miles away and for the kids, the Atlantis Waterpark can be a blast for those into wate...Welcome to our home, a typical Charentaise house set in the beautiful countryside of Charente-Maritime near St Jean d'Angély.

This villa is amazing, in a rural peaceful location with fantastic access to Saint Jean (local town), Rouen (fabulous beach) and Saints (large town steeped in history with an amazing amphitheatre). The owner, Mike, was a pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much trouble....More

The pictures do not even manage to do this house justice - we were two families, with 6 children in total. They had a fantastic time using the pool, playing table tennis and pool. They even had their own private cinema screen to enjoy! There...More
