Traditional Stone House with Heated Pool Near St Jean D'Angely, Charente Maritime, France - Scenic Location, 5mins Drive To Boulangerie, Supermarkets, Restaurant and 40 Mins To Stunning Coast
About Jayne Miller
I live in London with my husband, daughter and Cavalier Spaniel, Scarlet. We have enjoyed many sunny holidays in the Charente Maritime and love the French way of life. Les Rosiers is our perfect antidote to a hectic working life.
Jayne Miller purchased this House in 2010
Why Jayne Miller chose Lozay
I've been holidaying in France since I was a child and the Charente Maritime provides a great location. It's close to the UK whether traveling by air, sea or road. It also provides a fantastically warm climate, only second to the south of France. Les Rosiers is ideally situated, a rural idyll and yet within easy reach of all amenities, sightseeing, excellent restaurants and just 40 minutes from the stunning Atlantic Coast.
What makes this House unique
Les Rosiers is set within a beautiful 12th century Hamlet amidst peaceful rolling fields and yet within a five minute drive of all amenities, a further 10 minutes will take you to two larger towns providing excellent restaurants and impressive sightseeing.
Pool / Spa
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had the most wonderful time unwinding in this idyllic gem. The pool and garden are sumptuous complete with magical humming bird moths on the lavender. The inside is decorated in a very chic but comfortable way and the bedrooms are relaxing and cool.
We would love to revisit.

This is is the second time my husband, daughter and I have stayed at this beautiful property and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Set within a picturesque location and a stones throw away from breathtaking sunflower fields you could not ask for more pleasing, tranquil and relaxing surroundings. The house itself as well as being beautiful, is spacious, well maintained, clean and has excellent facilities. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas with many wonderful sandy beaches and lively towns within a 30 minute drive from the house. Our personal favourite towns and beaches to visit are situated in Royan, La Rochelle and Ile de Re. However, we would spend many a day at the house as it has everything you need and is such a lovely place to relax and enjoy your precious holiday time. We particularly love the luxury of having our own pool which is large and well maintained and kept our daughter entertained for hours on end! The customer service we received from the owner was second to none and nothing was to much trouble. We cannot recommend this property enough and are planning our visit for next year already!
The Price-Timmins family
Upon arrival, we were blown away by the beautiful house and its Charente surroundings. The house itself, is tastefully decorated to a high standard without losing any originality on its period charms. We all felt instanlty at home and very quickley, we were relaxed, sitting by the pool enjoying a glass of wine for the adults and juice for the children. The children indulged themselves playing in the pool for most of the day while we adults were able to keep a keen eye, eat and have fun too. The location is so peaceful and we all took time under the stunning cherry tree mid day, reading our books, listening to the local church bells, chime the time. The evenings were mostly spent at the house but we did venture to La Rochelle and other gorgeous local towns where the restaurants and local shops were just fab!!
We are booking again next year and making this a regualr annual peace of paradise!!
One of the most beautiful places I have visited
I visited this wonderful villa in June 2015 with my son,aged 8.This is the third time I have visited and stayed.It truly is a wonderful home with a great pool and with wi-fi is perfect for young children. It has an ideal location and from this area you can visit many of the surrounding areas,such as Santes,La Rochelle and St Jean, the closest town is so pretty and has everything you would expect from a small French town.
The Garden is a lovely space to sit and relax,listening to the birds and church bells. It is both private and quiet.There are some lovely walks you can take from the house, my personal favourite is to the roman ruins where, you can see great roman structures up close and for free.You can take a picnic and have a great day out.
The house is charming,very clean and has all the facilities you need for a great holiday.I would highly recommend this property and place to anyone.
This is the second time I have visited Lozay and stayed at this property. It is a beautiful home with private pool and garden area. The atmosphere is perfect and very relaxing. I have a young son of seven years old who loved swimming every day. It is a a lovely place for children and the property has great facilities for cooking,dining both indoors and out whilst also having facilities for relaxing,playing games,reading and watching the odd film or two when wanting to stay in. The local church bells ringing in the day make the place so serene. It is also situated in a position to visit many other places,such as La Rochelle, Santes and St Jean D'angley to name but a few by car. There is also a beautiful walk to the roman ruins if you are interested in historical sites. I enjoyed my holiday tremendously and would highly recommend this holiday home and all it has to offer.
Wonderful and peaceful
We went on holiday with another family We were 4 adults and 3 children and were amazed at the price we paid for such a wonderful house! The pool kept the children entertained while the adults sat around the patio or under the lovely fruit trees drinking coffee and discussing when and what to eat next! The surrounding area has plenty to do and lots of places to eat. But we loved the house so much we often cooked or had a BBQ . We are already looking for dates for next year.
