|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
A beautiful barn conversion offering open plan living with fully equipped kitchen including an oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster and kettle. The dining area seats 8 comfortably.
You can relax in the living area which has a TV, Freesat box, DVD player and Bluetooth speakers. Wifi is free.
There are 2 bedrooms downstairs with a shower room (1 x double, 1 x bunks) and 2 bedrooms upstairs with a shower room (1 x double, 1 x twin) making it ideal for several generations of family or two families to share their holiday. Cots are available upon request.
Patio doors open onto a private area of the 2.5 acre grounds. The views are glorious and offer peace and tranquillity. You can enjoy your own private BBQ and I usually offer a supply of vine wood to cook with to give your food that extra special flavour. The pool is stunning - a 12 x 10 L-shaped swimming pool shared with just one other gite.
We offer a range of bikes, badminton & table tennis
La Galerie and La Petite Grange share a wonderful swimming pool and can be booked together or separately. Set in the heart of the countryside with beautiful rural views of vineyards, sunflowers and woodland. Close to the Gironde Estuary, beaches, markets, Bordeaux and La Rochelle. Something for everyone. It is an excellent location for cycling, walking, bird watching, swimming, kayaking and visiting local markets.
My family and I love living in Charente Maritime. There is so much to do here and in the second sunniest place in France life feels good.
We love having visitors over to the gites and hope to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable and something to remember.

Charente Maritime is a beautiful part of France. The second sunniest location, it has so much to offer. Close by are beaches, the Gironde Estuary, Bordeaux and La Rochelle. It isn't far to travel to rivers for fun and adventure and the local markets are plentiful. There really is something for everybody. We have fantastic scenery with grapevines and sunflowers and forestry and the most magnificent range of birds and other wildlife.
A peaceful relaxing location with fantastic views and walkable to the local village of Lorignac. The pool is an outstanding feature. You can also enjoy Badmington and Table Tennis. Both gites have a BBQ and free Wifi and La Galerie now has a workstation.
The gite is one of two on the site, well-equipped and spotlessly clean with a lovely pool, huge garden with lots of things to amuse the children and very friendly family to point us in the direction of some great places to visit: an amphitheatre, lovely beaches, Cognac and super restaurants in a local harbour. The gite is surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields; a tranquil place within easy access of supermarkets and well-stocked boulangeries. We had a terrific time.
A very clean and tidy accommodation with all amenities at hand. Very friendly owner and neighbours, great pool and grounds. Very safe and quiet rural setting so fine to let the kids roam around the paths and roads that meander through the grape vines. I can highly recommend to stay in this tranquil area, with lovely scenery. Within 30 minutes drive it is possible to be in Royan, with excellent beaches or to explore the beautiful historic towns like Pons, which also offer canoeing and walking as well as some great inexpensive restaurants. Thanks for lending us the bikes (and your dog) which the kids absolutely enjoyed. Bon chance.
Just 25 mins to the closest beach, but here is a selection of some of the best:
Saint Palais-sur-Mer - beautiful sandy beaches and quiet waters with a host of restaurants
La Palmyre - popular with windsurfers and surfers but not patrolled by lifeguards
Le-Bois-Plage-en-Ré, Ile de Ré - wonderful sandy beaches surrounded by vineyards and forest. Stunning.
Chatelaillon-Plage - with a backdrop of architecture from Belle Epoque an award winning beach catering for the disabled and also ex
Bordeaux Airport - 50 mins
La Rochelle - 1 hour
Lorignac is just 2km away from the gites with a basic shop and couple of bars
St Ciers due Taillon is 6km (a 5 min drive) with boulangerie, charcuterie and village shop
Mirambeau is 14km (15 min drive) and is where you will find the nearest supermarket (SuperU)
Something for everybody with access to beaches, cities, rivers, markets, fishing, bird watching, fun pools and architecture to mention just a few of the things you can do in Charente Maritime - the second sunniest place in France.
