Things to do in Saint-Jean-d’Angely, France

Renting a self catering Saint-Jean-d’Angely property is a guaranteed way to relax whilst on holiday. The leafy streets and open, sunny squares provide endless opportunities to sit and soak up the atmosphere at one of Saint-Jean-d’Angely’s famous pavement cafes, which fill the streets and river banks with the sounds of jazz, Country and Western and Latino music during the long, warm, summer evenings.

Every Wednesday and Saturday morning, the town becomes a hive of activity as the weekly market rolls into town.

The Saint-Jean-d’Angely canoe club is the towns leading authority on all things Boutonne, who even organise evening barbeques throughout the summer months.

                                                        4 of 5
                                                        I stayed at this gite for 5 weeks with a varying team, whilst renovating my own property close by. We were given a very nice welcome all through the stay. John and Tania cooked for us some nights and the food was excellent "Bistro quality". The property has been fully refurbished with everything that you need. We were too early in the year to use the pool or gardens. The gite is in a small peaceful hamlet in a beautiful area of France about an hour to the beach, with shops and markets within 10 to 15 mins.

                                                        Great holiday - lovely area - excellent hosts.

                                                        We have stayed at Domaine Les Granges about 4 times now. Each time we have stayed in the not so busy months and have found the roads quieter, weather softer. All restaurants, shops, markets still in full swing around May, June, and September. Domaine Les Granges is a really good holiday complex and has great facilities.....so much choice. Plus many other activities nearby. The cottages are very comfortable (lovely beds!). Richard and Eva are great hosts and keep Les Granges looking good. Will go again and again!

                                                        Dear Jenni & Simon, Thanks again for letting us stay at your house we had a lovely holiday. The house is absolutely stunning and you have done an amazing job. When we all walked into the house and around the rooms we were all saying wow and how beautiful it all looked. My Mum and Dad have stayed in a number of different properties in France over a number of years and said it was by far the best they have stayed in. The girls really liked their room and beds and the garden in particular. There is lots of space in and outside the house and the quality of finish is very high. The 3 piece suite is very comfy and it is nice to have the sofa in the kitchen when people are cooking. We had a number of meals outside which is very easy to do with the access from the kitchen to the patio. We used all appliances (washing machine, cooker, dishwasher etc) and apart form the grill we used all quite easily. There are good utensils in the kitchen and is well stocked and the fans in the different rooms are a good idea. Having the English TV, games, books etc is very handy and the table with the guides/leaflets is a nice touch and very helpful to read prior to any trip out. There are many lovely touches around the house and we thought the sunflower picture in the lounge was really nice and the hat stand and shoe rack very handy when there were 6 of us in the house. We used the boulongerie in the village each morning for croissants and bread and they do some lovely cakes as well. We found St Jean easily, went to the aquatics place twice, along with the park and the abbey. Cognac was a lovely city with plenty to do and a lovely park. We had a day at the beach at Fouras which was only an hour away and includes a sea pool which you can swim in when the tide goes out. Mum & Dad also had a good day at Saintes and highly recommend their market on a Sunday, and we all went to the Aquarium in La Rochelle on the way back to the airport and this was also very impressive. In Bar Bistro they were very friendly and we had a lovely meal there on our last night. There is plenty to see and do and we only saw parts of it, so there is a lot to explore for any visitor The holiday and house was amazing and this week the girls asked if we could go back to France next week. We really did have a lovely time, thanks again. Tom, Jess, Bella, Bethany, Jane & Geoff.
