Holiday Rental House
La Dominique and La Fleur are 2 wonderfully converted stone barns, renovated and equipped to a high standard and perfect for 2 groups wanting to holiday together but have privacy when needed. Each gite sleeps 6 (note that La Fleur has a sofa bed downstairs) and has everything you would need for a fantastic holiday in the lovely Charente-Maritime region. Both gites have direct access to the heated swimming pool and full use of a large garden which includes a 14ft trampoline, badminton nets, swings, boule and a ping pong table in the open barn. Renting both gites gives you the opportunity to holiday with friends or family but has more benefits than renting a villa as you each have your own privacy and owners nearby to cater to your needs. The pool is cleaned every other day.

The pool is cleaned every other day. The village of Soubran 1 km away has a Boulangerie where you can collect your fresh bread and on Tuesday/Friday mornings their bread van comes around Touron so you can collect your breads/pastries outside your gite. There is so much to see and do in the local area. Bordeaux, Saint Emillion. Cognac, Saintes, Royan, Rochefort and La Rochelle are all within 1 hour's drive. Closer you can find the superb beaches of Meschers, St George de Didonne and Royan, swimming lakes, fishing lakes, historic towns and chateau, the list is endless. But if all you want to do is relax we can certainly help out there. We have new rattan pool loungers with very comfortable mattresses, pool toys for the kids to keep them entertained and floating rings for the really young! We have young children ourselves so know what is needed for a relaxing holiday with kids. We have a wine tasting evening every Monday on site with a local Wine House for the adults! More

About the neighbourhood
The gites are situated 1.5km from the village of Soubran and are surrounded by grapevines, and woodland. There are many great walks right on the doorstep and there is even a small fishing lake within 5 minutes walk. Soubran itself has a baker, bar/tabac/restaurant, post office, library, school and a small nature reserve. The market town of Mirambeau is 7 km away and has a supermarket, several shops, a couple of bars and restaurants and a lovely chateau which is a 4 star hotel and restaurant. Within a 30 minute drive from the gites are several other pretty towns well worth a visit including JONZAC with its beautiful chateau, activity lake and famous thermal spa, the old roman town of SAINTES with many historical sites, PONS with its medieval donjon and MONTENDRE and MONTGUYON with their castles.
