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.

Relaxing break

  • 4 of 5
Beautifully converted accommodation, with lovely pool. Nice touches from Tania and Mike with fresh bread and honey. Lots to do in the local area to keep our teenagers occupied. The markets at Melle and Lezay offer good local produce, Niort is closeby and has great shops and restaurants. Watersports and activities are available at LacLambon and Ruffec, and don't miss the chance to navigate the Marais Poitevin at nearby Coulon. A thoroughly relaxing break.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely gite during August. We had brilliant weather, this area really does have it's own micro-climate. The gite was better than described, it was spotless and well equiped. Even providing honey from the owner's bees; more can be obtained from the owners making excellent gifts for those back home. Our hosts Mike, Tania and their children Tabitha and Keenan were friendly and helpful with any of our requests. They know the area well, suggesting days out etc. There are lovely local walks, and you can borrow bikes.
We were a couple on our own, but rental would be ideal for everyone young or old, with or without children. We will definately be back and recommend Mike and Tania to our friends and family.

We had a lovely week's stay in the three bed-roomed Saanen gite. The gite was very clean and very well equipped for our stay. We all loved the swimming pool (very necessary as the temperature averaged about 36 c in our week!) and our boys loved the table tennis. Our teenaged daughter appreciated the wi-fi! Fo the adults, it was a lovely relaxing place to stay with all mod-cons provided.
There was lots to do both n the immediate area and further field and our hosts very knowledgeable and helpful - especially when we had motoring problems!
We had a wonderful holiday in a delightful area of France.

Home from home!

A fantastic place for all the family. Beautifully restored buildings, lovely safe environment for the children to play in and a superb pool for all to enjoy. We have been going for the last seven years and have loved every visit to La Chevrerie. Mike and Tania are the perfect hosts and are so accommadating. The local cafes and restaurants at Chef Boutonne and Melle are great for a coffee or lunch. But most of all we love to enjoy the local surroundings by walking down the lanes, cycling and swimming in the pool! Something for all the family!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Poitevine Gite for a week with our two young children and had a great time. The building has been beautifully restored by the owners and was it was spotless inside. The whole area is fenced and makes for a really safe place for the kids to play. The swiming pool is also like new, and is fenced around so children can't get to it unless it has been opened. The owners Mike and Tania were very helpful with anything we needed.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 weeks in the Poitevin gite and could not recommend it highly enough. The house was spotless and exactly as advertised. Tania and Mike could not have been more helpful and welcoming - including warm croissants delivered every morning. We have two young children and there is a wide open space in front of the house for them to play in full sight of the dining area. The pool is fantastic and completely safe for the kids with a fence and an alarm. Although the other 2 Gites were occupied during the stay, there is a real sense of privacy for each house and yet our children made friends with the neighbours and all entertained each other. We travelled by Ferry - the house is a straightforward 5-hour drive from Cherbourg. La Rochelle, Poitiers and many small villages are all within 1.5-hours drive, with the local bar & restaurant a 5 minute walk away well worth a visit. Thanks for everything Tania, we'll be back.

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.
