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.

As we drove through the fields of sunflowers towards the villa I knew a peaceful and relaxing holiday awaited us. Then, turning in to the driveway, it got even better when we saw the beautiful villa and gardens - the photos on Trip Adviser don't...More

We were impressed from the moment we entered the courtyard and were greeted by Michel, the kind and helpful neighbour. The house was far better in real life and perhaps the pictures don't do it justice. We loved the pool, the BBQ, the table tennis...More
