Le Chai, one of a cluster of 4 gites at LaFermetteFrance, is an old wine store with bags of charm and - with stone walls and gallery landing bedroom (king size and single bed) accessed by a spiral staircase. The dining table and breakfast bar are two great pieces of upcycled furniture which help give Le Chai it's unique feel. Wine barrels provide storage.
The well equipped kitchen has a washing machine, microwave, toaster, gas hob, electric oven, fridge, separate freezer and as it's the old wine store we have also included a wine fridge for storing all those great local wines. There is a settee and 2 comfortable tub chairs in front of the TV so that you can relax and keep up with UK TV but we reckon you will be too busy with visiting the local markets and cooking your finds, relaxing on the beach, sightseeing in La Rochelle, Saintes, Cognac and Bordeaux, visiting local wine and cognac producers, or cycling around the lanes and watching the local wildlife.
The gravelled garden with charcoal BBQ is south facing - a real sun trap, ideal for enjoying al fresco evenings sipping a glass of local wine ! You also have direct access to the orchard field, and the games barn next door where you can grab a bike to explore the country lanes or to cycle the 2.5km to the boulangerie for your morning croissants. There is also table tennis, table football, body boards, boules, and buckets & spades for the beach to bring out the inner child we also provide you with a beach umbrella.
We are flexible with arrival and departure days as long as you stay at least 4 nights.
