ETABLES ST SURIN

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Saintes area - Etables St Surin

Sleeps 12, 6 bedrooms

The 17th century Etables St Surin enjoys 12 acres of tranquil garden and parkland with a private swimming pool, providing an ideal location for families and larger groups. Enjoy a self-catered holiday in the sunny and warm climate of South Western France.

The Etables St Surin (sleeps 12) shares the estate with the Domaine (sleeps 10) and the Chateau (sleeps 16). However, each property has its own private terrace, swimming pool and grounds. This is wonderful chateau holiday experience and will exceed all your expectations.

Within a short driving distance (30 minutes) of the Chateau St Surin are blue-flagged beaches, wine and cognac tours, and of course shopping possibilities.

“The Stables” is a superb property which has recently been renovated to provide first rate accommodation equipped to a very high standard. The property was originally part of the stabling for the estate, with the tower being grooms? accommodation, and many charming original features have been retained. The Etables St Surin can sleep 12 guests in 6 bedrooms and enjoys spacious living areas, separate fully equipped kitchen and open-plan dining room.

There are two en-suite doubles, a further double and three twin bedrooms, with a total of four bathrooms. Two of the rooms are large enough to act as family rooms with extra single beds meaning the house can sleep up to 14 with 2-4 extra children sharing. Extra single beds above the normal 12 person set up are charged at 100 Euros.

The house is well appointed with all modern conveniences, the kitchen having electric cooker, gas hob, microwave, washing machine, dish washer, fridges and freezer as well as kettle, coffee machine, toaster, iron and hair dryer. There are cots, satellite TV, CD/radio, internet connection and bicycles available for hire. All linen, house towels, kitchen towels and utilities are included in the rental. We do ask you to bring pool and beach towels.

Outside the property has its own private parkland, swimming pool and BBQ with decked eating area. Half a hectare of grass and trees provide natural shade and a safe area for children to play. There are a full 8 acres of parkland on the estate.

About Oliver's Travels - France

Marvelous hospitality

  • 5 out of 5
After some days full of less needfull business we would like to thank you once more for your marvelous hospitality - according to the song of Pink Floyd we´ve heard in the night (headline), we all wish to be back in Les Etables. I´m sure fullfilling this in the next two years - we will see.

Location

Location

The region of Charente Maritime is one of the sunniest parts of France and benefits from a mostly sunny and warm climate from April through to October. The influence of the Gulf Stream means that winters can be as mild as the Mediterranean. Cognac & Saintes are 15km away and Royan is 25km from the estate. The airports of Bordeaux, Angouleme and La Rochelle are within 1 hours drive and are served by an increasing number of UK regional airports.

St. Genis & Pons are both 5km away where there are restaurants and small shops. The nearest beach is only 35 minutes drive. There are 3 golf courses we use on a regular basis, Saintes (typical UK type club), Cognac (good course, above average) and Royan (reminds one of the Berkshire courses - pine on sand - good course).

The area has many historical sites relating to its past including the periods of Roman occupation, Richard Coeur de Lion and Eleanor of Aquitane, the French Revolution and the Second World War. As the centre of Cognac production, the towns of Cognac and Jarnac are must visits with guided tours around the headquarters of such as Hennesey, Martell, Remy Martin, Otard, Hine etc. etc., as well as many opportunities to visit local producers.

The coast line from St Georges de Didonne north to St Palais sur Mer has miles of sandy beaches, good fish restaurants and the towns of Royan, La Rochelle and Rochefort are interesting places to visit and are all within one hour's motoring.

The area abounds with many fine restaurants, some more expensive than others but all incredible value for money. Many local artisans welcome visits to view their business, including, barrel making, wood carving and sculpture, pottery production, chocolate making and many more.

The wine production areas of Bordeaux are within easy reach with the Blaye region only half an hour away and St Emilion only just over an hour by car. From the towns of Blaye or Royan it is possible to take a car ferry across to the Medoc.

The city of Bordeaux can be reached in an hour with its good shopping, art galleries, museums and historical buildings. The same can be said for Saintes. Within an hour there are three top golf courses, at Saintes, Cognac and Royan with more around Bordeaux.

As well as the obvious sea fishing, river fishing in the Seugne is only 5 minutes away and in the major river of the area, the Charente only half an hour away. Only 5kms in either direction, there are good quality local tennis courts. There are several horse stables around providing riding for all levels through the local woodlands. A very local stable provides carriage rides around the lanes of the area. An international length (1.2km long) go-cart track is only 10 minutes from Clerbise. Canoes are available for hire on our local river Seugne.

A busy nightclub is just 5kms away and is open from Thursday to Sunday inclusive.
