LOVELY 18TH-CENTURY RURAL COTTAGE WITH EXCLUSIVE USE OF PRIVATE POOL

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Saint-Jean-d'Angely area

Detached, self-catering farmhouse with 4 bedrooms sleeping 8 in comfort

A charming, beautifully restored detached stone cottage with private pool in a rural hamlet a few miles from the medieval market town of St Jean d'Angely, and under an hour's drive from the sandy beaches of the Atlantic Coast. The perfect location for those who want to be quiet without being too remote, and with plenty to keep the children occupied. Maison Guerin, which is believed to be around 175 years old, is situated on a quiet lane in the village of St Pierre de Juillers. At the bottom of the lane is a stone bridge crossing the small River Nie, with woodland, fields of corn, sunflowers, the odd vineyard and excellent cycling routes beyond. The house sits in its own walled garden, which includes a courtyard with old well and bread oven. Beyond is the swimming pool, which is 10m x 4m and 1.5m deep, and surrounded by a paved terrace on which are sunbeds, table, chairs, umbrella and a solar-heated shower. Two games rooms offer full-size table tennis, pool, baby football and darts.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • pets not allowed

A truly relaxing stay in a lovely house. Loads to do in the area, but the weather was so good we spent most of our time around the pool! We must return. Thanks again.

Wonderful holiday

Just a quick message to say we had a wonderful two week's holiday in Maison Guerrin. The weather was superb and we really warmed to the region.

Thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely home.

We had a great two weeks, your house was a real home during our stay and the weather was wall-to-wall sunshine. To be honest, we were very sorry to leave - I think everyone would have liked to stay on...

Bliss!

Just to let you know we have all fallen in love with your beautiful house! You have done a lovely restoration job and the setting is idyllic.

I don't normally intend to do much cooking on holiday, but the kitchen is a joy to cook in and extremely well kitted out.

Off to town now for a bite to eat. The weather has been fabulous, so just sunbathing today and listening to the doves and bees. Bliss!

Wonderful Relaxing Holiday

We stayed at Maison Guerin for a week in August 2010 along with another family of four and we had the most wonderful holiday. The two spacious games rooms were very well used by our children; two aged 15, a 10 yr old and a 13 year old, but the highlight of the holiday was definitely the pool - it was used everyday and the children braved it even on the cooler days.

It was our first holiday to France and we drove down from Cambridge in approx 12 hours with stops, the drive was very easy and totally stress free with almost clear roads for the whole route.

The house itself was well equipped and had everything we needed. The farmer at the end of the lane is very friendly and everyone we came across was lovely. If you like running and cycling there are plenty of quiet and picturesque routes straight from the house.

St Jean d'Angely is an easy 10 minute drive away for shopping and restaurants. We visited Cognac, but found it very expensive and, (using the top tip in the brochure in the house), we found a beautiful beach with a free car park and great facilities in Royan - but we didn't venture much further as everyone was more than happy just to laze by the pool.

Our only moan would be that it would have been nice to have an outside table that we could all fit around - but we found plenty of tables around the house and put them together, so we could make the most of the balmy evenings and the beautiful starry skies. I understand that a large outside table is imminent now too.

If you like a relaxing, quiet, peaceful holiday then Maison Guerin ticks every box - our only regret is that we didn't go for two weeks!

St Jean d'Angely, about 5 miles away, is a beautiful medieval town with a fantastic market and loads of good restaurants. There are lots of interesting towns nearby to visit, including Saintes, Cognac, Surgeres and some beautiful beach resorts along the coast under an hour away, including La Rochelle, Royan, Ile de Re, Ile d'Oleron, Meschers, Fouras, Brouages, we could go on! For kids, there are water parks, zoos, an aquarium, boat trips, beaches, playgrounds, etc all within easy reach. Also not far, at Poitiers, is the highly recommended Futuroscope which is a fantastic day out for the whole family.
