Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in La Rochelle - Surgeres area - La Cigogne

4 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8 more than comfortably. Near St Jean d'Angely

La Cigogne is an old, yet charmingly restored, farmhouse set in 1/2 acre of ground with barn, outbuildings and a secluded 10m x 5m swimming pool all for your exclusive use. The property, which sleeps 8 more than comfortably, is located in St Etienne La Cigogne, a peaceful hamlet, in the Charente-Maritime 10 miles from St Jean d'Angley. La Rochelle and the coast with its sandy beaches are only 40 minutes away. There are plenty of activities in the area such as horse riding, boating, canoing, tennis, the sea and golf combined with a wealth of sight-seeing opportunities all within easy driving distance. Shopping is a must particularly in Niort, La Rochelle, Cognac and St Jean d' Angley where there are many local restaurants bars and cafes. The nearest village, Villeneuve-la-Comtesse, is less than a mile away where you can purchase most essential items. But why not just relax by your own pool and enjoy La Cigogne and all that it has to offer!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I have just returned from a perfect 2 weeks at the farmhouse. The property and setting are actually much better than the pictures portray. The house itself is very spacious, with plenty of things provided to make the holiday enjoyable - such as DVD's, games, Sky TV etc. The gardens are much bigger than you can see on the website too, including a lovely gravelled drive and garage. Within easy drives are small and larger supermarkets and nice restaurants etc. Plenty of English spoken in the area too which helps with our pigeon French. There were 5 of us in the family, and a dog, and all had a super time. We may even book again. The owners and caretakers also very nice too! (oh, and great weather!)

Excellent

  • 4 out of 5
Excellent Property very rural and quiet. Brilliant owners very helpful and informative. Pool not heated but not needed as it was generally above 23 C. Everything you need for a quiet relaxing holiday. We went with family of 4 put could comfortably sleep double that. Overall would definitely recommend.

Thanks Very much

Car: necessary

There are a host of activities and things to do in the area including:

St Jean d'Angely - located 12 miles away is a charming medieval town with a busy market twice a week. It has a wide range of shops, cafes and dozens of restaurants. Niort - Originally a Gallic village snuggled in a bend in the river on the banks of the River Sevre 14 miles away, the town has kept the traces of its glorious history intact. It is a commercial town with many different businesses and the Baltard style market hall, which shelters a very lively covered market. La Rochelle - The best way of seeing La Rochelle is to stroll along the quay sides of the old harbour and through the network of pedestrian streets. It is obvious from the old timbered houses and private mansions that the source of La Rochelle's splendour has always been the sea. Shops and restaurants abound and should be combined with a visit to the nearby beaches. The Atlantys pool complex - in St Jean d'Angely is open 7 days a week.

Other Activities: Go-carting

The pool is equipped with an alarm system, which complies with the recent much tighter French law. It will detect anyone entering the pool even a baby and the alarm can be heard from anywhere in the farmhouse and beyond. It is very easy to turn on and off, is child proof, and is self-alarming after one minute of inactivity in the pool.
