Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Saintes area - Les Vieilles Pierres

Spacious 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom House For Relaxed Family Holiday

This recently renovated stone cottage is located in a private garden with a swimming pool and parking space.

From the wooden terrace, enter a large kitchen-dining room that opens onto a sitting room with a stone fireplace. There is one double bedroom on the ground floor with shower room and toilet. Upstairs is a second double bedroom, one large bedroom for children with four single beds, and a bathroom with shower, bath, double washbasin and separate toilet.

The house is ideally suited for two couples and four children.

The garden is spacious and ideal for outdoor games. There is a barbecue and outdoor dining area with seating for 10. The 8m x 4m swimming pool with safety cover, is close to the house and surrounded by a wooden terrace where you can relax in the sun!

Plassay is 5 minutes from Port d'Envaux where you will find a bakers, a grocery store and an oyster seller on Sundays, as well as canoe hire and river swimming. It is 10 minutes from the roman town of Saintes (restaurants, cafés, shopping and historical sites), 40 minutes from the sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast, île d'Oléron, île de Ré and La Rochelle, and 30 minutes from Cognac and it famous distilleries.

About Rosie & Jerome Moreau

Franco-British couple Jerome and Rosie, welcome you to their family holiday home.

Rosie & Jerome Moreau purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Rosie & Jerome Moreau chose Saintes area

We love the fact that the house is in such a quiet spot. This really is the ideal place to get away from it all. No busy roads, crowds or parking problems!

The pretty nearby towns of St Savinien, St Porchaire and Saintes offer authentic markets, restaurants and cafés.

For a day at the seaside, there are vast sandy beaches on the Atlantic coast with bicycle and surf hire and delicious local oysters and mussels.

And if you're not simply relaxing by the pool, the village of Port d'Envaux, five minutes away, is the ideal spot to spend the day with a picnic and a good book by the river. Simple pleasures!

What makes this cottage unique

We bought this house as a ruin in 2005. Only two rooms had been occupied, the rest had been used as a barn and goat shed!

We have renovated it as our ideal family holiday home - letting in extra light with skylights and open plan rooms. We wanted a contemporary, relaxed atmosphere whilst respecting the original stone walls and oak beams.

We hope you will enjoy the natural character of the house!

The photos look great but the reality is better

Wow! Our family (incl 2 young children) had the most amazing time here and were treated to true 5* self catering accommodation. The house was sensational, the photos really do not do it true justice - the children's room had a fab selection of toys, books and games. The kitchen had all mod cons and the living room was a great place to relax in the evening. The garden area was great for running off steam at the end of a busy day and the pool area was beyond expectations. The property was spotlessly clean and the owners went out of their way to text us pre-arrival and visit us to show us how the pool cover worked.
The surrounding area was very appealing with well maintained country lanes making for easy travelling to many interesting places, and lots of small villages to explore and find local provisions. The local people were very friendly.Our favourite days out included Saintes, Ile de Re, the aquarium at La Rochelle (go early!!!) and the local village Port d'Envaux with its sculpture park just outside. The miniature port in nearby St Savinien is a must if you have small children - our two loved it.
A gem of a property - we would highly recommend it.
