There are 5 fully refurbished gîtes from which to choose. During the summer of 2019 we added Le Manoir, completing the five gîtes on site. We offer self-catering facilities, a shared, heated pool (open from of May until end September) and beautiful, newly landscaped, gardens that are just waiting to be explored. Our gîtes are available all year round:

  • Le Manoir  is a spacious family gîte with two luxurious en suite bedrooms, sleeping up to 4 to 5 people;
  • Les Hirondelles is a well-equipped four-bedroom cottage which will accommodate up to seven people;
  • Les Vignes is the little sister to Les Hirondelles and ideal for small families. It has three bedrooms in total and can sleep up to six.
  • L’Ecurie is a tastefully converted stable block, sleeping four in spacious bedrooms, each with its own staircase.
  • La Forge is a spacious single bedroom gîte, ideal for couples.

A large terrace, equipped with sun loungers and parasols, surrounds the 10m x 5m pool. Each gîte also has its own outside dining area with tables, chairs and shade, along with a charcoal barbecue for those of you who enjoy the al fresco experience.

For the adventurers among you, why not borrow our bikes* and explore the local area, the markets and the cycling routes. What better way to enjoy the beautiful scenery? But don’t let the picturesque French countryside setting fool you, there is plenty to keep you busy in the local area if you are looking for a more active holiday. If it’s golf, cycling, kayaking, fishing or horse riding that tickles your fancy; you have come to the right place! Or perhaps you would like to take a short trip to Cognac to sample the local produce. A day out to Île de Ré is a must; Saint-Jean d’Angély, Saintes and the lovely beaches at Royan, Saint-Georges-de-Dionne, and Île d'Oleron are all within easy reach.

Néré is the local village where you can pick up your morning baguette and croissants, enjoy a bistro style lunch or a traditional French evening meal.

Once you sample the simple pleasures of relaxing on the terrace, while the little ones explore the garden, play on the swings or make use of the on site games (including: table tennis, darts and pétanque), you may never want to leave! In the cooler months you can relax in front of a log burning stove set in real Charentais fireplaces watching the TV (English or French) or settling down with a good book (perhaps from our free book exchange). The welcoming atmosphere and little extra touches, including hidden fairy doors, are sure to spark your imagination and create those magical holiday memories.

We offer free wifi. microwaves, fully equipped kitchens, modern shower rooms and comfortable seating in all gîtes

We look forward to welcoming you, your friends and family soon!

*we have a small number of bikes on site which are available at no extra cost. We only ask that guests who want to borrow the bikes bring their own safety helmets. Health and safety ey? There is no escaping it sadly…
