Welcome to our lovely gite in the heart of the Charentes-Maritime countryside.
This wonderful property is in a peaceful location in the countryside, set in almost two acres of informal gardens and woodlands and with its own outdoor heated swimming pool. Bordeaux and Cognac are within a one hour drive as are the beaches of the Atlantic coast. Local towns and villages offer a variety of amenities and shops, as well as weekly markets selling fresh, regional produce.
La Gaitrie enjoys a beautiful setting in peaceful surroundings. Other than a neighbouring farm, the views from the house and garden are of uninterrupted countryside. The gîte is wheelchair friendly and fully accessible.
There are miles of tracks for you to walk or cycle right from the doorstep through the surrounding woodlands (oak, birch, chestnut, cherry), vineyards and countryside.
There are two bedrooms, one with a large double bed and the other with a single bed and a child’s box bed. However, on request, we can provide another single bed to make this also a double room. There is also a small sofa bed in the living room.
