|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
A tranquil gite set in the stunning countryside of the Charente Maritime. It benefits from 3 bedrooms (1 x double, 1 x twin, 1 x single). There is a shower room and an additional WC.
The main living space is open plan with a fully equipped kitchen including washing machine, gas oven, fridge freezer, microwave and toaster. There is TV with a DVD player and also Bluetooth speakers and free Wifi.
Patio doors open onto 2.5 acre grounds with a great view of the pool. 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.
If you want to explore, we offer a range of bikes.
Table tennis and badminton are also available.
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.
We had an amazing time here. We have 3 boys age 10,8 and 3. All of them loved this gite and the pool. It was such a wonderful stress free holiday. We didn't travel far at all from the gite, the boys were happy enough at the gite. We borrowed the bikes a few days and cycled to St. Ciers or just found a route round the various vinyards and sunflower fields. It was great to go downhill but tough to come back up! The gite was in a great location, close to beaches and shops. The BBQ was amazing we used vinewood! Sarah and the children made us feel soooo welcomed. My boys didn't want to come home. They loved the space, the freedom, the pool and the various games outside. The pool had plenty of pool toys but it could be a bit cold for my 3yr old, but he was happy pottering in and out of the water and around the pool. My husband and I felt very safe and totally relaxed. We arrived after a stressful time hiring a car, but the wine and fruit was such a lovely welcome. We relaxed with wine by the pool area as the BBQ was cooking. The gite was perfect. We could watch the boys play in the garden and in the pool from the gite. A fantastic holiday. Many thanks Sarah, Oscar and Megan x
