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.

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.

Nice, relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5
We have just spent a lovely week at Rove gite, it provided a great base to explore all the area had to offer, La Rochelle, Arcais, Poitiers and Futurscope. The facilities were everything we needed, nice, clean and the pool was essential in the hot weather, our 11 year old daughter did not want to leave, thanks.

Lovely Holiday

  • 4 of 5
We spent a lovely week in the Rove gite in July this year. Tania kindly accommodated us with our 3 children who had a wonderful holiday with the good weather, the kids in the other gites, the great pool and the games room.
The house was spacious and clean with a lovely area outside where we had barbecues most evenings. We didn't travel much as we all were quite happy to spend our days in the gardens and by the pool and the children enjoyed the nightly walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
I would definitely recommend La Chèvrerie as a relaxing holiday destination and hopefully we might make it back there again.

Super Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful week in the Rove cottage. The complex of 3 gites is the perfect location to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The accommodation is first class and with all new fittings. Each gite has its own private area for eating and BBQ's. Well located for trips to La Rochelle and the coast. Well worth a visit.

Arrived at Rove gite after a 7 and a half hour drive from Calais. Welcomed by Tania and Mike and soon enjoying a swim in the great pool which had plenty of sunbeds and it's own shower and room and toilet.Gite was well equipped with private patio.Our sons, aged 13 and 11, enjoyed the games room with table football, UK TV, internet and table tennis.Plenty of space for ball games on the lawn.Futurescope is an hour away at Poitiers and well worth a visit, especially the evening show, Good weather all week. Richard and Nicky from Buckinghamshire.

Car: necessary

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.
