Peaceful simplicity

  • 5 out of 5
This lovely and quite roomy cottage offered simple, yet perfectly adequate accomodations combined with the quiet and elegant ambiance of Chez Foucaud's unique setting. Everything was neat, clean, fresh and ready for us upon arrival. The owner went well beyond the usual courtesies to make everything comfortable and easy for us. All that one might need for a holiday stay is available in the surrounding villages, towns and daily rotating markets. Cognac and St Anne d'Angely offer interesting shops and restaurants as well as pleasant walks and sights. And... I'm going to call the quite nearby natural beach areas magnificent for swimming, along the shore walking or simply being in pristine, natural settings.
It was a renewing time for us to stay at Chez Foucaud where the passing of days gave us a sense of being at one with both ourselves and our surroundings. We're returning this year, because everything about it was truly pleasant.

Owner's Response: Thank you Valerie and Greg for the splendid review.
I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you both when you come for a month in September. I am in France at the moment getting everything ready.

Last summer it was fun introducing you to our friends here and our dinner parties together.

I have been planting up the pots and tubs with masses of geraniums and zinnias and
love in the mist. The TV aerial needed a new part to receive the UK channels so all is well there.

Sincerely
Margerita

Thank you for showing an interest in our cottage. We really hope to welcome you to the Saintonge region. We are about one hour (traffic permitting) from La Rochelle (look out for cheap flights and rent a car), the beautiful island and some superb beaches. Our nearest lovely beach is at Royan only 40 minutes away. Colourful markets selling country produce and of course sea food, are never far away. Your cottage is only 15 minutes from the old Roman towns of Cognac to the east, Saintes to the south and St. Jean d’Angeley to northwest. The cottage is only 8-10mins walk from the village shops

The wide Charente river runs through this part and there are many fine places on the banks of the Charente, Seugne or Boutonne, where you can have a romantic dinner, go boating, walking, cycling or just drive and admire the fascinating scenery. There are some lovely old chateaux, historical monuments and pedestrian precincts. Enter into the friendly spirit of the surrounding villages, where at the slightest excuse parties are held, for example, by the local football team or the local fire brigade, in the village Salle de Fete which go on the small hours sometimes. Experience the Fete and Festivals which add interest and beauty to the towns and villages around you. If you are around on 14 July (Bastille Day) there are dozens of celebrations and fireworks in the villages close to you.

One September my friend and I helped to pick the grapes. Do try the local wines and especially the Pinaud, which has become a favourite aperitif. In Cognac you can be shown round the various distilleries and be given a taste of the brandy at the end of the tour, usually lasting an hour. Take a picnic and sit on the banks of the Charente on your way out before going to your car. One could go on and on extolling the virtues of the region. But I have to say that staying here not only recharges the batteries but puts one mind of Nat King Cole’s song “What a Wonderful World”.

We have lots of games: table tennis and bats, bicycles, etc. and masses of brochures of things to do and visit in the area.

There is a tennis court in Brizambourg and a swimming pool at the village of St Bris des Bois close by; also in the area golf, riding, boating. Those interested in antiques will look out for the many very interesting brocantes in the area.
