SUPERIOR CHARENTAISE COTTAGE AND HEATED POOL - SLEEPS 4

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in La Rochelle - Surgeres area - Le Prieure cottages

Cottages with 2 bedrooms, bathroom or shower room, kitchen /lounge + heated pool

Part of a Maison de Maitre in the CharenteMaritine region of France, these luxury cottages form part of the private residence which was built in 1780. The main house and cottages are within a large private walled garden on the edge of the village of Chervettes.

The cottages have been recently restored to a very high standard with modern facilities yet still keeping the original charm and history of the buildings.

The cottages have all facilities to ensure a comfortable stay in tranquil surroundings yet within easy reach of La Rochelle and the world famous Ile de Re. For those who are content to stay at the cottages the external amenities include a 10 metre heated outdoor swimming pool with changing rooms and sun area. Le Prieure is a mere 5 minute drive from the historical town Surgeres with its fabulous walled Chateau and medieval town centre, the town offers a great choice of restaurants , bars and modern supermarkets offering local produce.

New for 2013 we have converted a former cattle barn and hayloft into a stunning one bed apartment. It has private parking and a huge terrace. Pull out beds in the large reception are ideal for children.

Le Prieure is ideally located with great motorway links which opens up the Charente region and beyond.

Within an acceptable driving distance are the following attractions.

Space World at Poitiers.

Vineyards in Cognac / Bordeaux.

Beaches of La Rochelle and Chatelaillon plage.

Sea World in La Rochelle.

Beautiful Ile de Re with its sailing schools, secluded beaches and cycle tracks

Beautiful property, great holiday.

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful property which has been renovated to the highest standard without taking away its charm. The pool and pool room are superbly maintained and all the equipment for table tennis, badminton etc. are well looked after. Enjoyed breakfast on the terrace in the sun, very peaceful and private. Had trips to Ile de Re-beautiful beaches, La Rochelle-very chic even in a torrential downpour!,,Chatellion-great creperie and the surprisingly charming Rochefort, Peter was the perfect host offering a warm welcome, advice on restaurants, local maps etc. Our children (10 and 8) loved it here and would have happily stayed around the cottage all week. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone-the best accommodation we have stayed in in France by far! Thank you.

Luxurious setting and accommodation

  • 5 out of 5
1.Our accommodation, Suzanna, was outstanding ( spotlessly clean , with every amenity available and considered by the thoughtful owners). I travelled with my 2 children (aged 8 and 11) who adored the setting with private gardens to explore for play and their particular favourite the private pool.
2, Location. Idyllic- amongst the sunflower fields. We explored the area on bikes provided by the owners and enjoyed the games room ( table tennis and badminton). Day trips to the coast and inland involved a car drive of about 30 -40 minutes but this was easy driving along beautiful country roads, and a sat nav reduced all stress in finding locations. Local shopping was a 10 minute drive away.
3.The owners were really welcoming ,unobtrusive, accessible, and they always seemed to know when this Dad needed some support or direction with local advice providing vital information about the area and how to get the best from our visit.
4. Every day was different from beach days, to visits to historic houses, the zoo, boat trips ( inland and at sea) , cycling, or just relaxing by the wonderful pool.
5. For me it was the perfect contradiction; as an adult I could happily have spent the whole 2 weeks relaxing outside my cottage or conversely there was plenty to do with 2 children keen to explore .
6. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property
7. The property is just so beautifully presented. With my job, I have been fortunate to travel overseas and stay in some great hotels and properties , but this place is really as is it is described - perfect for a refreshing summer holiday .
8. My delayed review results from my own poor time management , but as I plan this year's adventure , I am struggling to find anywhere similar to beat it .
Thank you for a wonderful family holiday Best regards Ian, Inge and Alex.

Fantastic location, beautful cottage

  • 5 out of 5
The Rosina cottage is beautifully presented and ideal for a family of four with plenty of space for all. The house and grounds are delightful, and with the addition of the pool, makes for perfect holiday accommodation. The owners, Marie and Peter, made us feel most welcome and were on hand to answer any questions or help with recommendations, even to the point of making a restaurant reservation for us at the Le Scorlion restaurant in Saint-Jean-d'Angél, which is to be recommended.

We had wonderful stay and would recommend this accommodation and area - we will be returning!

Owner's Response: This and is a charming area of France with many great restaurants. There are so many places of interest within a half hour radius, it is hard to see it all in a week. With the fabulous weather the temptation is to just relax and spend time by the pool.

Idyllic cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
We have just had the most marvellous stay in the Susannah cottage, it was a complete wrench to leave at the end of the week. The cottage is small but perfect for a family with young children. The house and grounds are stunning, a real treat. Our kids loved the pool, and we were perfectly happy lounging around the house and grounds, but we also had some great days out at the zoo in Royan, the aquarium at La Rochelle and the Aqua Centre in Chatelaillon Plage. This is a great location for easy access to the main attractions, but peaceful and away from the crowds that you find on the coast. Big thanks to the owners for making us feel so welcome..... we will definitely be back next year!

Beautiful, idyllic setting. Would highly recommend

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Rosina cottage which was delightful. Quietly set amongst, beautiful sunflower fields.
The accommodation was immaculate and a great size for a family of 4, with young children. Beautifully presented as the pictures on the property advert show.
The pool was gorgeous, as were the the gardens.
The owners were very welcoming and attentive.
We loved our holiday, had an amazing time would highly recommend this cottage.

Fabulous

  • 4 out of 5
I stayed here with my two teenaged children and it was amazing, one of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had. The area is blissfully quiet and tranquil, and set in beautiful countryside. The house was fabulous and we really enjoyed the addition of the pool, although we didn't use it too much because we had too much fun at the beach. You need to be happy to drive to stay here I think, as the nearest beach was about a 30 minute drive away, although it would also suit you if you wanted to stay local and just enjoy the very characterful village of Surgere which is practically on the doorstep. We found plenty of supermarkets and restaurants within reasonable driving distance, once we got over the fact that we arrived on Bastille day with no groceries, expecting to be able to stock up at a local supermarket, only to find that not a single one was open!! Never mind, we just had to go out to eat


One thing that we really enjoyed was that while we were there the owner and family were staying in the main house, although I understand they wouldn't always be. The family were so warm and friendly, ready to help us with anything we needed and really allowed us to enjoy staying and using the property without making us feel in any way awkward. I would definitely recommend staying here, and we really didn't want to go home!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased Tanya enjoyed her holiday in Rosina cottage. When the crowds at the beach become too much the tranquility of the Prieure is what we are offering. We have a fabulous pool and everyone has loved it so far. So thank you very much for your kind words.
