Embrace the French sunshine at these gorgeous gites and bedrooms. Perfect for individual families or larger groups, the accommodation is set around pretty gardens, with a heated pool and play area. The three gites have been beautifully restored from buildings serving the former priory at the site. Chambre d'hote rooms are equally gorgeous, light and sunny. Spend lazy days on site, or head out into the stunning Charente exploring pretty villages, rivers and historic towns.

About the owners

Charlie & Stephanie

We moved here in 2010 to live a different life and create a beautiful place for people to come and relax in the Charente – our favourite region of France.

Owner recommendations

  • The River Charente is a wonderful natural playground with places to picnic, canoe, fish and swim.

  • Learn the secrets of sailing on a gabare boat trip along the river Cognac.

  • Just 12 minutes away is Planet Ski with water skiing and wake boarding on offer in a pleasant, safe environment.

  • If you need a bit of culture, nightlife or shopping then head to Angouleme, the region’s capital, or Cognac.

  • Rochefort is a pretty French town with an ancient ship building dock and unique outdoor climbing.
