Le Beau Fief is a beautiful traditional stone gite enjoying a tranquil setting in the midst of sunflower fields & vineyards just a ten minute drive from the delightful market town of Aulnay. Brimming with quirky character this eighteenth century stone cottage is set within the confines of a 600 sq m private walled garden, adorned with vines and kiwis providing a safe and relaxing haven for adults and children. The gite has been newly decorated and furnished, retaining oodles of rustic charm with its exposed beams and quirky features. Further fruit trees and seating areas can be enjoyed by guests on the 500 sq m fruit orchard opposite. The property is comprehensively equipped with all modern cons and has mountain bikes for guests to enjoy free of charge.
The property opens out onto acres of raw farmland where there's not muc...

Stayed here in June 2015. An amazing part of France, in the country, but not far from the coast. And an amazing Gite, swimming pool and surroundings. Tori and Rich have tried to think of everything you will need to make your stay comfortable, even bikes! We hope to return one day.

We stayed here last autumn. The house had everything you could possibly need, and was beautifully presented in a very peaceful location. Some good restaurants locally, and we really enjoyed the markets in the nearby towns. We were also blessed with good weather. Would definitely recommend and would like to return

About the neighbourhood
Aulnay, St Jean d'Angely and Matha are all a short drive away, each offering a selection of supermarkets, cafes,bars, restaurants and banks as well as weekly markets which sell fresh regional produce. St Jean d'Angely is the bigger of the three and has a pretty lake & picnic area with canoes & pedaloes for hire. A go-carting circuit is situated on the edge of the town. There are usually weekly brocantes in the nearby towns during the summer, as well as the splendid foires which are huge markets, that dominate the town centres for a few hours. The best are probably Saintes on the first Monday and Rouillac on the 27th of every month. The chateaux at Dampierre-sur-Boutonne, La Roche Courbon, Crazannes and Panloy are nearby. The untamed, sandy beaches of the Côte Sauva... more
