Les Capucines is a beautifully restored 18th Century Charentaise Farmhouse that caters for couples, small & large families as well as groups of up to 26 guests.

Located in the sunny Charente Maritime region on the site of an old Roman encampment, this fully equipped gite complex is centrally located to a huge variety of activities. The beautiful Atlantic beaches are only 20 minutes to the west, including the historic old harbour side town of La Rochelle and the glorious islands of Ile de Re, Oleron and Aix. To the north are the majestic chateaux of the Loire and to the south the rolling landscape of the Dordogne and the vineyards of Bordeaux.

For those who need to relax, there is a large sparkling pool with terraces surrounded by tranquil gardens as well as a soothing massage to relieve those stresses and strains.

So whatever yo...

We stayed as a large group using all three gites. The gites are extremely well equipped and immaculately clean. The crisp, white, cotton sheets are beautiful.
We all used the pool area everyday, it really is beautiful and again very clean. When we did manage to drag ourselves away, we enjoyed the many places to visit, which are so easily reached.
Mark and Margy were wonderful hosts and seemed to have a knack of being there when needed but at the same time you felt you had complete privacy.
I would definitely recommend one of Margy's massages, truly relaxing.
All in all a fabulous holiday, which I would thoroughly recommend.

Les Capucines was an ideal setting for our family group get together. This large Gite had four bedrooms with two bathrooms and both large living and kitchen areas that allowed our group plenty of room to get together or space to chill out. It was quite warm weather while we were there so time spent around the large swimming pool and gardens was much enjoyable.
Les Capucines is set in a rural location but close by you can pick up your freshly baked croissants for breakfast or enjoy an evening meal at some great restaurants. We explored further a field and visited Rochefort, Fouras, La Rochelle and Saint Martin de Re on one day and Bourdeaux on another.
Thank you Mark & Margaret for a wonderful week.
