The cottage is part of a 17th century estate. Surrounded by gardens, fields & the Charente River, it has a private alley and its own access to the river. The site is picturesque, secluded and peaceful. Nice swimming, fishing, golf, hiking.

The space

Next to Saintes, Cognac and the sea, in the heart of Saintonge Romane, you will enjoy a relaxing time and the charm of this unusual environment, a lovely place for "vieilles pierres" amateurs. The cottage used to be the farmhouse, it has been renovated to welcome guests.
The house is practical, comfortable and cozy : bedrooms upstairs, living area on the ground floor facing the garden (what used to be the farm yard !).
100 sq m at your disposal : living room open on a fully equipped kitchen with a fireplace, laundry room with closets, toilet. Upstairs: hall with books and games leads to two bedroom, 1 king size bed for 2 persons (160 cms), 2 one-person beds (90 cms), large wardrobes in each room, spacious bathroom equipped with 2 washbasins, a bathtub, an independent shower and toilet. Floors covered with "tommettes" artisanal tile, carpet and sisal. All modern conveniences. Gas central heating system for a year round occupancy (hot water and heating), heaters in each room.
All our guests love it ;-)

Holds the distinguished "Three Seagulls" label from Saintes and Saintonge Tourist Office (Three Stars).

Guest access

The garden is reserved for you, looking out on a large wooded courtyard, with tables and chairs, you have your own easy chairs and even a hammock pour long naps outside under the trees.
A private access leads you to the Charente river !
Outdoor parking in private alley.
If you’re coming for fishing, biking, golf or canoeing, you can store your equipments in the garage, it is easy and practical ! NOTE We can hear trains, the traffic is light. To go to our own house, we cross the common courtyard/garden. Once there, we cannot be seen. The two houses are separate and far apart, except for this passing through.

Interaction with guests

We provide you with information and guides on this very rich area (the long white sand beaches of the Atlantic coast 40 kms away, Bordeaux, historical La Rochelle, Cognac, Saintes the former Gallo-Roman city with its Middle Age churches, the islands of Ré, Aix, Madame, Oléron). We love it and give you hints and tips, our coups de coeur (the best beaches to go to, the nicest villages, the good restaurants, the best markets). You can take home some good bottles of Pineau des Charentes provided from our friends and local producers. And experience two great golf courses in Saintes and Cognac.
Perfectly located in the heart of Charente Maritime with all its festivals, Festival de Musique de Saintes at l’abbaye aux dames, Blues Passion at Cognac, Francopholies at La Rochelle…

Nathalie's house is in a truly beautiful location next to the river Charante. We enjoyed eating out in the lovely garden accompanied by a very friendly cat! The house was well equipped and comfortable. Nathalie friendly and welcoming, helpful in her advice about the local area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay !

Lovely location and place with a beautiful garden, and Nathalie is an excellent host. We enjoyed swims in the river, dinner in Moulin de la Baine and at the creperie in Chaniers, and relaxing in the garden shade.

Nous avons passé un bref, mais très agréable séjour sur les bords de la Charente. Nous y reviendrons.

Response from Nathalie:
Nous sommes très attentifs à la propreté mais parfois les maisons anciennes en pleine campagne réservent des surprises. Désolée de cet épisode Pierre-Yves, à bientôt.

Séjour très agréable chez Nathalie. La location est idéale pour un moment de détente en couple ou en famille au bord de la Charente et proche de Saintes et de sa vieille ville. Merci à notre hôte !

La Charente-Maritime déborde de richesse que nous aimons partager, tout comme nos vieilles pierres auxquelles nous sommes attachés. Les lieux insolites et nos coups de cœur sont les vôtres, parmi les ingrédients qui vous permettront de passer un séjour heureux ICI.
