Les Alleuds Cottage Rental Photos and Description

La Chèvrerie, 3 self-catering Gites, sleep between 4/6 people with games room

3 self-catering Gites. Our Gites are situated in a small hamlet in Les Alleuds in the Charente-Poitou region very close to the historical town of Melle. They were Farm Gites for the goat farm which was originally on site. With ancient exposed stone walls and wooden beams, our cottages provide modern convenience and old world charm.

Attractions: In the Historic Town of Melle which is only 15 minutes drive away, there are Mines d'Argent (Silver Mines), Deux Arboretums ( There are 2 walks through the town ), Roman Monuments and 3 roman Churches for you to explore. At Chauvigny an hour away there is a Medieval City and a truly unique spectacle of amazing birds of prey from all corners of the earth; Les Géants du Ciel. If you would like to swim in the local Lakes there is Lambon 40 minutes away and St Macoux which is 20 minutes with lifeguards or there are outdoor Swimming Pools at Melle, Sauzé-Vaussais or Lezay all 15 minutes away. For the children La Vallee des Singes (Monkey Valley) and L'ile aux Serpents (Snake Island) are 40 minutes away. The canal system of the Venise-Verte makes a lovely day out, just an hour away, where you can punt or just walk.

More to do: A must for the adults is a visit to Cognac where you can go on a guided tour and taste the local Brandy or just explore the lovely town with your children. The theme park of Futuroscope at Poitiers gives a whole new perspective on the Cinema. Don't leave before the night time show! All the local Towns have a market on different days of the week where you can savour the French way of life.

perfect setting for 2 week break

  • 5 of 5
The gite was perfect in every way. the photos on the website does not do the property justice! The pool area was excellent, clean and a heated pool was good as the children were occupied. There was plenty of space in the gardens and also the play area was good as the children loved the rabbits. We would definitely come back to this property as it was excellent value for money.

Saanen Gite - Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5
Very, very impressed with the accommodation. This property has been fitted out to a very high standard. The Gite was comfortable and spacious, clean and tidy. The grounds were exceptional and immaculate. The pool was spotless and warm.
The owners were most welcoming and accommodating. The owners were there if we required anything and looked after us very well. If you get the opportunity you must try their honey and home grown fruit and veg, it was quality and tasty.
This Gite and the holiday itself I would strongly recommend to anyone who has not experienced this type of holiday before. 5 stars from us.

Lovely gites, thoughtfully maintained

  • 4 of 5
Thanks to Tania and Mike for being so hospitable and thoughtful. They had thought of everything, from the welcome pack of wine, teabags, milk, sweets and more, to the delicious home baked croissants and pain au chocolate every morning, and the free loan of bikes for us to use. The gite was clean, spacious and very well equipped so that we didn't have to worry about anything except for relaxing and enjoying our holiday. In spite of it being the wettest August in this region for many years, we all enjoyed the swimming pool, the table tennis, and the lovely local countryside, on foot and two wheels. We equally enjoyed BBQing at the gite, and going out to eat locally, with several excellent choices recommended by Tania. The children (aged 13 and 6) enjoyed feeding the rabbits and playing in the grounds. WiFi was a bit intermittent, which was great for the adults but a little frustrating for our teenager! In our opinion these gives offer excellent value for money, with attentive but not intrusive hosts, and in truly beautiful surroundings.

Lovely setting to explore the area

  • 4 of 5
We have just spent a lovely week in the Rove gite. The gives in this small complex have been furnished to a high standard and ours was very clean on arrival. The gifts of sweets, biscuits, tea, coffee and wine were much appreciated. The gite has a lovely swimming pool and games room. There is a small laundry room which is useful with kids. The ability to order fresh croissants every morning was a lovely gesture.

The actual location of the gites is very quite but it is a great base to explore the region. We took day trips to La Rochelle, Ile de Re and to Futuroscope.

A very relaxing return visit

  • 5 of 5
Another enjoyable week staying at these lovingly restored gites. The gites are fully-equipped and very well maintained. The communal gardens and pool are also kept in great condition. There is even the plus of being able to order home made croissant in the morning. The location is far from the madding crowd but is a good base for exploring the area on two wheels or four. Melle is pretty town with all the amenities you need. A discovery this year was the beautiful Abbaye Royale at Celles-sur-Belle. It is not far from Melle and well worth a visit.

Fantastic place to stay and relax!

  • 5 of 5
We spent five great nights here, the gite was beautifully kept, very clean and well fitted out. Tania was always on hand if we needed anything and we really appreciated the fresh croissants delivered every morning along with home made honey!! The pool is lovely and a welcome place to spend a few hours in the heat! We also enjoyed canoeing in nearby Ruffec.

The property is situated in a small hamlet between Sauzé-Vaussais and the historic town of Melle, an hour from La Rochelle, Poitiers and Angouleme.

Chaignepain is ideal for cycling and walking along meandering lanes past small vineyards, fields of sunflowers and maize, taking in panoramic views of the region. The way of life in this area is so rural and unhurried that it gives the impression of going back through time. The total absence of any light pollution, means that at night you can look up to an astonishingly crisp and clear sky and enjoy a glorious display of stars. Chaignepain is very well placed for visits to Cognac, La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Chauvigny, Venise-verte, Futuroscope at Poitiers and the local historic town of Melle. We benefit from living in the region that is recognised as the 2nd sunniest in France.
