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 -...

Our aim is for you to completely relax here so we have equipped each gite with everything you need to feel totally at home during your family holiday. The gardens are safe and child friendly with a large lawned area for children and toddlers to roam freely and to play on the swings, slide or build châteaux in the sandpit. The swimming pool is heated and fenced for safety. We welcome children of all ages from babies to teenagers and have provided everything you need for the perfect French family holiday including a bottle of chilled champagne for the adults.More

Additional amenities & feature info
Rooms are spotless, generously proportioned, airy and light. We have a passion for all things French and have thoughtfully furnished each gite in an original style which combines the needs for family friendly holiday accommodation with a charming quirky touch. The kitchens have hand painted units and high quality appliances including a dishwasher, washing machine, large fridge/freezer (with chilled champagne ), electric cooker, induction hob, and microwave. There is an open plan dining area with table and seating for 6. In the sitting room you will find comfortable sofas, armchairs and painted furniture accessorized with some of our vintage pieces. The flat screen TV has English channels and there is a DVD player, iPod dock and free wifi. Numerous books, toys and games are available for all ages. The gites have 3 bedrooms - a king, a double and a twin so we can accommodate 6 adults and 2 babies. There is a large family bathroom with WC. Downstairs there is a shower room with WC. Each gite has its own gravelled, private garden with teak dining furniture, sun loungers and a barbecue. The gites are joined but do not overlook each other and offer total privacy. Babies, toddlers and older children are extremely well catered for. Cots, stair gates and plenty of baby and child equipment are at your disposal to ensure your family holiday goes smoothly. For winter or longer lets our gites are available to rent all year round and are heated throughout.
