Le Manoir offers a stunning 3 Bedroomed Cottage & a lovely 2 bedroomed Gite for rent in its spacious 4 acre grounds. We are situated in sunny Charente Maritime amidst a wealth of vineyards, sunflowers and rolling countryside, neighbouring historic towns nearby like Jonzac, Pons and Montendre offer typical French market town life. The traditional buildings on the site create a beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday. The uninhabited chateau 500m down the lane adds an inspiring backdrop and with WIFI Broadband Internet, you can stay in touch and share your experiences with family & friends.

We are situated in sunny Charente Maritime amidst a wealth of vineyards, sunflowers and rolling countryside, neighbouring historic towns nearby like Jonzac, Pons and Montendre offer typical French market town life. The traditional buildings on the site create a beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday. The uninhabited chateau 500m down the lane adds an inspiring backdrop and with WIFI Broadband Internet, you can stay in touch and share your experiences with family & friends. Holidaying at Le Manoir is all about having loads of family things to do in the safe environment of our huge grounds, we frequently hear from parents that they were suprised that they actually had some relaxation themselves and found they needed to go and find what the kids were doing when they had finished their reading and wanted some interaction. Le Manoir tries to turn the 'Mum I'm bored' holiday on its head. But when you are ready to explore the area, just hop in the car for a huge variety of fun, exploring and sight-seeing. We are only 30 minutes from the fabulous family friendly golden atlantic beaches at Royan and only 15 minutes from the quaint fishing ports on the massive Gironde estuary. The area is steeped in history and has a range of good quality family tourist attractions, several are world class. The accommodation is very well equipped including antique furniture, dishwashers, satellite TVs and WIFI broadband. Le Manoir provides an ideal base for a family holiday and for exploring the South of France. The 4 acre grounds offer plenty of space to relax and unwind and with lots to keep the children (and adults!) entertained. Besides the 10m by 5m beautiful saltwater pool, both the Cottage & the Gite have their own large patios with big barbecues and hardwood table and chairs so you can enjoy outdoor living in the sunny weather to the full. Prices quoted are for occupancy by 4 people. A 5th person can be accommodate with the Option of requesting an additional bed which will easily fit in the twin bedroom.

About the neighborhood
Set in gently rolling countryside and surrounded by woodland, apple orchards, sunflowers and vineyards yet only a short drive to the coast. The local lanes are a delight for a quiet stroll or a family cycle ride when you can spot lots of interesting wildlife including huge birds of prey circling the woodland. When you are bored with watching the sun go down over your BBQ, there are plenty of good restaurants within a short drive. There are a wide variety of activities for all ages within easy reach of Le Manoir for example: 10 pin bowling at Saintes and Meschers, both 30 mins Quad bikes - an excellent forest track with exciting dips and climbs and bridges. 35 mins Royan Go Ape - Zip Wires - 5 courses some very high and challenging. 30mins Royan.

Getting around
We are in the countryside so a car is necessary for getting out and about. We do have bikes so you can cycle to the local boulangerie for your fresh baguette and croissants in the morning.
