Set within the peaceful grounds of an 18th century chateau, Logis de la Prise was originally home to the caretaker and has now been beautifully renovated into a holiday gite that provides every home comfort while also retaining its period charm.
If you’re looking for a rural cottage in a truly delightful part of France then Logis de la Prise ticks every box. The accommodation is simple yet luxurious, the setting overlooking gardens and countryside is unbeatable and the atmosphere is tranquil and relaxing. There is no better place from which to explore the scenery and attractions of the gorgeous Charente Maritime region.
The surrounding countryside offers lots of signposted walks and mountain bike trails (surely the best ways to take in the scenery), and the cottage is not far from the town of Surgeres, with its tri-weekly covered market and walled chateau, and St Jean d’Angely, with its bustling old streets and stunning bell tower. The historic city of La Rochelle, complete with an old port area, plenty of excellent seafood restaurants and a renowned aquarium, is within easy striking distance, and other local attractions include the tranquil canals of the Marais Poitevin and the excellent local zoo in the forest at Chize. If you want to go to the seaside there are safe beaches at Chatelaillon Plage and further afield at Royan, or you could head for the exclusive Ile de Re off the coast of La Rochelle.
The nearest airport is La Rochelle (50 minutes) which is well served by inexpensive flights, or you could get the TGV from Paris to Niort. By car/ferry you should travel to Caen or St Malo and then join the motorway to Niort via Rennes and Nantes.

The Logis has its own south-facing seating area and a private garden with terrace. The chateau sits in 7 acres of grounds which boast attractive gardens, woodland walks and a full sized croquet lawn.
