Overview

Saintes area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

There are 3 gites, ground floor accommodation, sleeping 2, 2, 2 - 6 together.

The properties occupy a delightful rural location offering peace, quiet and space, but at the same time being only 10 mins from all amenities and 40 mins from several wonderful sandy beaches. Although no pool, there is the river Charente 200 m down a grassy track with a small pebble beach for easy access for swimming, canoeing (we have one here you can use) or fishing.

There are three cottages offering different types of accommodation, secluded from each other, all bright, sunny and airy with high ceilings, exposed beams, wood burning stoves and heating. This is an ideal spot for those of you wishing to spend a few months in this sunny region, discovering life in France, searching for a new French home or just taking time out. There are mature trees and space between each offering shade and privacy where wanted. There is a large garden for you to choose a shady (or sunny) nook to sit and contemplate. The rates are per month this year as we are not offering short term holiday lets. English French-speaker on-site much of the time.

Changeover days: We changeover on Saturdays generally, although there is flexibility outside June, July and August

About Angela Simmons

I am a retired englishwoman sharing my life with a Frenchman. I came here for the outdoor life, peace, quiet and space. We swim in the river every day throughout the long summer.

Angela Simmons purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Angela Simmons chose Saintes area

I chose this house after a long search for its beautiful setting in a charming environment, quiet and peaceful and yet not isolated from the rest of the hamlet or the towns nearby. The beaches, which are magnificent and all sandy, are all within a 40 minute easy drive.

Sehr schöne Auszeit

  • 5 of 5
This July we spent two restful weeks in “La Petit Pommerai”. We liked the house from the first sight. Everything we found as promised in the internet. The description from the house and the
interior was right. All things were on the right place. The bright, friendly was with complete equipment. Most of all, everything was very clean. Also we liked to sit on the terrace in the
wonderful great garden and enjoyed the peaceful evenings. Angela is very hospitable and has done a great job in renovation of the old houses. We got a very useful description how to arrive. Thanks to her for everything. The house is very central to reach all the wonderful beaches and the lovely towns in the surrounding. After all we were very sorry to leave and we are looking forward for our next stay.

Fantastic retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage for a week at the beginning of August, the weather was great. The cottage was very spacious, comfortable and well equipped for our family of 2 adults, 1 teenager and 1 dog. The garden is quite large and very well maintained and although it is shared with the other accommodation, the shrubs and trees give plenty of privacy. Angela was very helpful and accommodating giving us any information we needed about the area. The river close by was very clean and slow running making it ideal for swimming and boating. Saintes is a beautiful historic town with great markets selling fresh produce most days. There are also picturesque villages near by with restaurants, bistros and boating equipment to hire. Overall we had a fantastic, restful holiday and our only complaint is that we didn't book for longer.

A peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was a real delight. The accommodation was first class.... a bright, tasteful yet sympathetic conversion of an old building, providing every comfort. If we needed anything the owner was always very pleasant and helpful.
The surrounding area is really lovely, with a beautiful river flowing only a few hundred yards away. We used the canoe and had a marvellous day gently paddling through idyllic surroundings, stopping for tea and ice creams en route.
We also loved the ancient town of Sainte with its bustling market and cafes set amongst stunning architecture. The Roman amphitheatre is well worth a visit.
Our whole experience was truly memorable, and we'd recommend a stay here to anyone.

Lovely homey holidays in rural area

  • 5 of 5
We spend two calm weeks in a lovely small domicile near the river Charente. Every day we do trips to touristic highlights in the area and to the atlantic coast. It was warm and sunny nearly every day and a breeze from the atlantic made an outside stay wonderfull.

Erholsame und interessante Familienferien

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten wunderbare zwei Wochen im Etable Ganz, zwei Erwachsene und drei Kinder. Die Lage ist ruhig, ländlich und bietet eine perfekte Mischung von alter Bausubstanz und modernem Komfort. Einfach aber sehr geschmacksvoll eingerichtet, ist das Ferienhaus eine Oase für die Erholung und die Entspannung. Die Besitzerin ist hilfsbereit, freundlich und aufgestellt, es machte jedesmal richtig Spass mit ihr zu schwatzen. Aus diesem zentral gelegenen Ort kann man die ganze Region Charente erkunden, mit seinen vielfältigen Angeboten: wunderschöne entlegene Küsten (Grand Cote), interessanter Austernanbaugebiet (Marennes), einladende Inseln (Ré, Oleron, Aix), Cognacgebiet, mittelalterliche Schlösser, atemberaubende Steinbrüche (Crazannes), überaschende Landstreiche voller Kanäle (marais poitevins), etc. Ideal zum Fahrradfahren, zu Fuss erkunden und sich von der lokalen Küche verwöhnen zu lassen. Mit oder ohne Kinder eine gemütliche und unvergessliche Feriendestination.
