Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Saintes area - La Basse Pommeraie
There are 3 gites, ground floor accommodation, sleeping 2, 2, 2 - 6 together.
The properties occupy a delightful rural location offering peace, quiet and space, but at the same time being only 10 mins from all amenities and 40 mins from several wonderful sandy beaches. Although no pool, there is the river Charente 200 m down a grassy track with a small pebble beach for easy access for swimming, canoeing (we have one here you can use) or fishing.
There are three cottages offering different types of accommodation, secluded from each other, all bright, sunny and airy with high ceilings, exposed beams, wood burning stoves and heating. This is an ideal spot for those of you wishing to spend a few months in this sunny region, discovering life in France, searching for a new French home or just taking time out. There are mature trees and space between each offering shade and privacy where wanted. There is a large garden for you to choose a shady (or sunny) nook to sit and contemplate. The rates are per month this year as we are not offering short term holiday lets. English French-speaker on-site much of the time.
Changeover days: We changeover on Saturdays generally, although there is flexibility outside June, July and August

I am a retired englishwoman sharing my life with a Frenchman. I came here for the outdoor life, peace, quiet and space. We swim in the river every day throughout the long summer.

Why Angela Simmons chose Saintes area
I chose this house after a long search for its beautiful setting in a charming environment, quiet and peaceful and yet not isolated from the rest of the hamlet or the towns nearby. The beaches, which are magnificent and all sandy, are all within a 40 minute easy drive.
