Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Royan area - La Blanchetterie
Two self-catered properties, each sleeping 6, near to the beach
La Blanchetterie is a beautiful charentaise farmhouse and gîte set in the quiet village of Chenac, facing south with fantastic views of the Gironde estuary, just 10 minutes from the nearest beach of Meschers. Complete with pool, the property is set in an acre of garden, surrounded by vineyards and sunflowers. The adjoining village of St Seurin d'Uzet used to be the centre of caviare production in France. The region is famous for not just caviare, but oysters, wine and cognac.
The property has been restored to keep a lot of the original features, including exposed beams and stone fireplaces. Each house is well equipped, all linen and bath towels are provided.
The owners, Katie and Mike Harrington, live at the property in a converted barn behind the house and are at hand to answer any questions, and maybe take you on a tour of a working vineyard for those who are keen to do a bit of tasting, including the local Pineau.
Golf: There are a number of golf courses in the area - Royan, Palmyr, Saintes and Cognac.
Bicycles: We have a range of bicycles for our guests to use.
Meals: We will quite happily cook for you on any amount of evenings during your stay.
Don't hesitate to ask us for more details on this.

About Katie and Mike Harrington
Having lived in London for many years, we had a year in Vietnam which really made us realise that we wanted to try something different.
Katie and Mike Harrington purchased this cottage in 2001
Why Katie and Mike Harrington chose Royan area
We looked at many houses before we found La Blanchetterie. It ticked every box including a perfect location in the quiet French countryside but only 10 minutes in the car from the beach.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Fantastic weather, great area and super house to stay in. Mike and Katie have been wonderful hosts and we have enjoyed their company, always on hand but never imposing. Thank you for a couple of fantastic weeks, hope to see you both again either here or in Morzine.
