The house sits in the heart of the countryside yet only a short cycle ride to the boulangerie, butcher's and mini grocery shop and the larger market town of Aigre with it's regular markets is only ten minutes drive. Cognac and La Rochelle are great places to visit as are the beaches at Royan.

The pool is alarmed and the garden is enclosed making it safe for children and there is a large open barn under which a late night game of table tennis can be played or you can enjoy a leisurely evening meal eating and drinking al fresco under the stars. The summer nights are hot and balmy and you can just sit back and relax and enjoy the warmth.

Reviewed 24 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The house was really clean and had everything we needed, there was 4 adults and 2 children. It was really great that the house had a few bikes and inflatables for the pool so we didn't have to use all our baggage allowance on the bits and pieces to make our holiday less stressful. The weather was perfect and we had our BBQ Dinner every night in the garden. With so little light pollution i have never seen so many stars. Really fantastic stay, it had so many little touches like the bread van driving past the house and bike rides around the sunflower fields.

Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed in La Maison Charentaise in July - x2 families, x4 adults and x4 children (ages 3 and 5). Excellent property that easily accommodated all 8 of us. The outside space was ideal with the pool, covered eating area, BBQ and garden space for the kids to play. Located in a quiet rural setting with easy access to local amenities, shops, restaurants and even a local picnic area lake/man made beach just down the road. Local caretakers to help with any issues / give advice too! A fantastic time was had by all.
