In the heart of the beautiful Charente Maritime countryside you will find Maison du Puits & Le Logis, a country house and adjoining cottage for two which combine authentic character with contemporary style and fantastic facilities. A wonderful summer kitchen complete with stone pizza oven, and a private swimming pool, means you'll want to spend all your time outside! There couldn’t be a better setting for a French holiday with family and friends.
Located in the sleepy village of Villeneuve-la-Comtesse, Maison du Puits & Le Logis offer the ultimate in welcoming home-from-home accommodation and shabby chic charm. Both properties have been tastefully renovated and there are adult creature comforts aplenty, but the site is also hugely child-friendly which makes it a wonderful choice for all the family. Within the lovely grounds you can sunbathe on the pool terrace, have fun in the games room and BBQ in the al fresco kitchen, and if you can bear to drag yourself further afield then there are villages, vineyards, chateaux, golf courses and beaches to explore. If you’re looking for a holiday destination that provides both peace and proximity to vibrant La Rochelle then you won’t find anywhere more perfect than this.
The property is situated in the village of Villeneuve-la-Comtesse, where amenities like a bakery, a post office and a mini market are on offer. There are plenty more shops, bars, restaurants and banks in the nearby towns of Surgeres, St Jean d’Angely and Loulay, or the colourful town of La Rochelle, with its many attractions, is just 40 minutes away. The Cognac region is known for both its vineyards and its golf courses, a boat trip on the Charente river is a must, there are sandy beaches and a zoo at Royan or the magnificent chateau at Dampiere sur Boutonne is both fascinating and picturesque. There really is something for everyone.
The nearest ferry port is St Malo, around 4 hours away, or you could fly into La Rochelle (45 minutes), Poitiers (2 hours), Bordeaux (2 hours) or Limoges (3 hours). There is a train station in Surgeres, 15 minutes from the house.
