One-Off Feature

In the heart of the beautiful and historic Charente region you will find The Courtyard at Sainte Catherine, an award-winning chambre d’hotes which is home to three beautifully restored holiday rentals in France. Chez Coco is stylish, quirky and wonderfully welcoming.

General Info

If you’re looking for a family-friendly holiday destination where you and your loved ones can relax with charming hosts in peaceful picturesque surroundings then look no further – The Courtyard is exactly what you need. Once a cluster of virtually ruined buildings, the owners have transformed this place into a little haven of wellness and tranquillity, where the surroundings are rural, the skies are clear, wildlife is abundant and hospitality is a priority. On site you can enjoy home cooked meals and a gorgeous swimming pool, nearby is the pretty village of Rouillac, and all around are the many delights of the region, including the Charente river and the vibrant towns of Jarnac and Angouleme. This is a heavenly retreat.
