Chez Bouquet is a beautiful 250 year old farmhouse converted to a high standard as a holiday home. Set at the end of a cul-de-sac, in a small hamlet in South West France consisting of ten houses. Our visitors say it has a homely feeling, unlike impersonal hotels. Also perfect for reunions,and sophisticated stag/hen weekends

The house is completely secluded, set in more than two acres of garden and woods with, a large salt water private pool, and surrounded by sunflower fields and vineyards producing wine, cognac, and our local apperitif, pineau de charentes.

We have just had a fabulous holiday staying at Chez Bouquet, the house and garden and pool were just what was required. Having breakfast and our evening meals in the conservatory overlooking the garden was great. The house was very large and comfortable and the addition of Sky TV (with the sports channels) was a great bonus. Stephen (the owner...

If you are driving from Calais you could consider an overnight stop, perhaps at Alencon which is about 200 miles from Calais.
The easiest route is from St Malo, which is about 4hrs 30. Also good are Dieppe, Caan,, leHavre, or coming from the West Country, Plymouth to Roscoff.

By plane La Rochelle is the nearest, and easiest, with Ryanair, Easyjet
Flybe, or Jet2. Bordeaux is also available with Ryanair, British airways, and easyJet. This takes a further thirty minutes to reach the house.
Alternately, Bordeaux airport also hosts Ryanair and Easyjet on an almost daily basis
