Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Charente-Maritime - Le Prieure cottages

Cottages with 2 bedrooms, bathroom or shower room, kitchen /lounge + heated pool

Part of a Maison de Maitre in the CharenteMaritine region of France, these luxury cottages form part of the private residence which was built in 1780. The main house and cottages are within a large private walled garden on the edge of the village of Chervettes.

The cottages have been recently restored to a very high standard with modern facilities yet still keeping the original charm and history of the buildings.

The cottages have all facilities to ensure a comfortable stay in tranquil surroundings yet within easy reach of La Rochelle and the world famous Ile de Re. For those who are content to stay at the cottages the external amenities include a 10 metre heated outdoor swimming pool with changing rooms and sun area. Le Prieure is a mere 5 minute drive from the historical town Surgeres with its fabulous walled Chateau and medieval town centre, the town offers a great choice of restaurants , bars and modern supermarkets offering local produce.

New for 2013 we have converted a former cattle barn and hayloft into a stunning one bed apartment. It has private parking and a huge terrace. Pull out beds in the large reception are ideal for children.

Le Prieure is ideally located with great motorway links which opens up the Charente region and beyond.

Within an acceptable driving distance are the following attractions.

Space World at Poitiers.

Vineyards in Cognac / Bordeaux.

Beaches of La Rochelle and Chatelaillon plage.

Sea World in La Rochelle.

Beautiful Ile de Re with its sailing schools, secluded beaches and cycle tracks

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Marcelona for a week at the beginning of August, what a fabulous week! The property as a whole is stunning, in a quiet location but well situated as a base for anyone that enjoys days out. We spent most of our time relaxing either on the terrace or by the lovely pool. The owner, Peter, was a great host, very helpful. This was the best holiday we've had in France, can't believe we found such a lovely place to stay and we'll definitely be going

back!

WOW! What a truly special place xxx

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed here for 7 wonderful days 14/6/14 to 21/6/14, we will never forget it!

Stunning surroundings, beautiful pool area and gardens to have lunch or late dinner plus lots of lovely red wine!

Our converted barn was simply beautiful, very tastefully furnished, very large, everything you could possibly need, cutlery, dinnerware, glasses etc, lovely bedroom and bathroom and an impressive large living area. The balcony was stunning, especially in the morning and then later in about 8pm watching the sun move around.

We hired a car and travelled to La Rochelle (40mins) Ill De Re (50mins) and Cognac (1hr 5mins)

La Rochelle is gorgeous and there is lots to do, we parked in the St Nicolas underground car park, cost approx 4.20 euros for 8 hours. Be wary of the flashy restaurants right on the port, they are not as nice as the look! We ate at Cafe Leffe right near to the entrances of the towers, and there is a lovely Cafe on the corner, opp the port on the main strip if you like, can't remember it's name sorry! We did eat at La Grande Rive/a, this wasn't nice at all and was overpriced, do not go here!!! Save your money.

Ill De Re stole the show for us! It cost 8 euro to go over the bridge by car, however from end of June it doubles to 16 euro as it is now classed as summer, even though the weather we had was hot! We hired bikes and rode around Saint Martin, La Flott and the rest of the eastern side. The cycle paths were fab, we never got lost and if we did come off track it was easy to find the path again. Saint Martin is the main, then La Flott, we had amazing meals at both and lovely Ice cold beers watching the world go by. There are beautiful beaches around these areas too where you can stop off, chain your bike up and have a chill! Just awesome!

We went to the Hennessy Cognac Tour which was very interesting, plus you get to taste the cognac at the end!

This has been our 2nd time in France, and it has been truly lovely, we will never forget it and will most certainly be back to this area and will definitely be booking with Peter again and his wonderful home, the cottages are also stunning and if you choose to stay here, you are in for a treat! Thank you xxx
