Charente Maritime Gites
Welcome to Charente Maritime Gites which are especially suitable for couples and are among the few in the area catering for 2 adults.
The two recently renovated gites, both with king sized beds, are stylishly decorated, well equipped, self-contained and are all one on level. Guests have the use of a heated salt water swimming pool which is shared with the owners.
The Gites are in the grounds of a charming Charentaise farmhouse, parts of which date back to the 1750's each with their own garden offering a high degree of privacy, garden furniture, barbeque and secure off street parking.
Guests who have friends/relatives wishing to stay for a few days or more can be accommodated on a bed and breakfast basis in the main farmhouse.
Each gite is equipped with French television, CD /radio and DVD player.
Wi-Fi is also included free of charge.
The Charente Maritime has an ideal climate and is the second sunniest area in France.
Le Grand Chevallon is a small hamlet situated in the heart of the Charente Maritime near St Savinien and between La Rochelle and Saintes.
The rural setting provides a perfect location for a peaceful and relaxing holiday and also for those wishing to venture further afield the opportunity to explore the many attractions and amenities this fascinating region has to offer.
We are surrounded by countryside with fields of sunflowers, wheat and maize– ideal for cycling, walking and bird watching.
Numerous daily, weekly and monthly markets, cafes, restaurants, shops, attractive towns and villages are nearby. The historic towns of Saintes, St Jean d'Angely La Rochelle and Cognac are worthy of a visit, while the beautiful city of Bordeaux is only 90 minutes away.
A visit to the islands of Re, Oleron, and Aix as well as all the local Chateaux, the vineyards of the Medoc and Bordeaux have proved very popular with our guests.
There are many beautiful beaches from 30 minutes drive and the Charente River where boats can be hired is just 10 minutes away.
We are very proud of the fact that nearly half our guests have stayed on at least 2 or more occasions.
