Rod and Josette have lived at Les Agrilles since 2002.We lived and worked in Shropshire as farmers and decided when both our sons went off to University to come to France to have our own adventure! It certainly has been that. We have loved every minute and love to share our home with people coming to visit this peaceful part of France.

Mrs Josette Cooke purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

We had wanted to buy a house in France most of our married life. Rod wanted the north and Josette the south. It wasn't until we came on holiday to this area in 2000 that we both said this is the area for us. The rest is history!

I think that the benefits of Les Agrilles, is the peace and tranquility it offers. The beautiful sunsets make each evening a joy. Peace and tranquility within the grounds with superb views over the undulating countryside. Yet we are close to beaches, estuary, bars, restaurants shops etc not making us totally isolated. The best of both worlds.

We have just spent the most wonderful two weeks in this property with our friends. It was all the description says and more - the owners have really gone the extra mile to make the house a special, comfortable and beautiful home away from home. I loved the decor, the house is just amazing and it's very well kitted out - lovely big spacious kitchen, great cooker, loads of crockery, pots etc which of course is essential for a large group. Lovely, safe pool which is so important with a gang of kids and the grounds are just lovely. We have already recommended it to friends and hope to go back soon. And the owners are just lovely and very welcoming.. Can't fault it.

We rented this property to celebrate my 40th birthday and it couldn't have been any better.
The facilities are excellent, with a good size pool, large kitchen, outside bar-b-que dining area with a bar area in the property's old bakery, along with table tennis, boules and a even a football goal to keep you occupied.
There were 10 of us but this property could easily hold a lot more, with the number of bathrooms and bedrooms available.
The lovely owners Josette and Rod are on site but you would never know unless you need something, or some help or advice then they are only too pleased to help.
I would also highly recommend getting Josette to cook for you, we had a wonderful 4 course meal on my birthday and Josette and Rod made the place look amazing with bunting and even a birthday cake!
There is a large supermarket a short drive away, but the CO-OP and bakers in the village down the road (St Fort) is fine for essentials and wonderful fresh bread and pastries, it is also very pretty and has a nice little bar etc.
Local area is great for sight-seeing, we went to Bordeaux, Royan, Saint Emilion, Bayle and I would recommend all of them, but lots of other places worth seeing aswell.
Apart from that, at such a wonderful location, drinking great wine, eating too much wonderful food and watching the wonderful sunset from the bar-b-que area made me and everyone else very sad to leave!
Hoping to return as soon as possible!

The house is ideally situated for a relaxing holiday. Close to the Gironde estuary with its pretty ports and inviting restaurants. Port Maubert and its lovely restaurant by the river are only 4 kms away. The beaches of Merchers and St George de Didonne are only 20 minutes away. This beautiful house in the Charente Maritime is within easy reach of the A10 Paris/Bordeaux motorway. It is also one hour from Bordeaux and 1 ½ hours from La Rochelle International Airports. The port of St Malo is only about 4 ½ hour drive away. The Charente has the second highest number of sunshine hours in France ( after Cote d'Azur) with temperatures reaching the high 30's in July and August. Charente Maritime has a mild temperate climate thanks to the Gulf Stream, which embraces the coastline. With only a 15 minute ferry trip across the Gironde from Blaye you will find your self in the Medoc, where you can visit renowned Chateaux and savor the delicious world famous wines of the region.

Other Activities: Residential traditional upholstery courses held throughout the year. Wine tasting organised. Cookery courses available on request.
