Villeneuve la Comtesse, Charente-Maritime, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Le Cognassier and Le Cerisier were originally 18th Century stone barns and we have converted them into beautiful self catering holiday accommodation.

Decorated and furnished to an exceptionally high standard, the gites are brimming with charm and character. With families in mind, we have blended modern comforts with our quirky vintage finds to create stylish and relaxed interiors which are totally family friendly.

Set within a blissfully tranquil, walled garden the holiday cottages offer a haven of peace and an opportunity to escape to the countryside and experience the simple pleasures of French life. Within striking distance of large towns and the stunning beaches of the Atlantic coast, they also provide the perfect base for exploring the beautiful, unspoilt region of the Charente - Maritime.

Our aim is for you to completely relax...

Just an hours drive from the airport at La Rochelle to this wonderful oasis of calm. Sue and Simon were, as always, friendly and extremely helpful...the perfect hosts. We were there during a heatwave and the lovely pool was a lifesaver. There is a lot to see and do in the area and this proved the ideal base. Looking forward...

There were plenty of places to visit within an hour away. The Ile de Re and La Rochelle are definitely worth a visit. The pool was a big hit with the children and the...
