Why Ruth weinstock chose Saintes area

Having holidayed in France every summer as a family during the 80s and 90s, when my husband and I finally moved to France in 2000 we wanted to create the perfect holiday home based on our years and years of experience renting a variety of gites in France.

We designed the property to provide a quiet, relaxing and peaceful holiday space, to cater for all the family. A large pool for the kids, outdoor space and bbq for the adults, and large rooms to provide that much needed moment of quiet to relax. Les Deux Chataigniers is near enough to civilisation to make shopping at markets and visiting the beach a pleasure, but set within a tiny hamlet that provides a private holiday gite, away from the pace of daily life.
