Chez Keordie is situated in the tranquil hamlet of Rouchave in the Charente Maritime region of South West France. Surrounded by stunning sunflower fields in mid summer and acres of immaculate vineyards, which produce world renowned cognac and Bordeaux wines.

A short distance away (8.8km), you will find the pretty Medieval town of Pons. Today, the town still boasts 12th century monuments in perfect condition. There are many interesting architectural features, for example the ramparts, the keep, the church of Saint Vivien, the chapel of Saint Gilles, and the Pilgrims' Hospital. Pons provides an assortment of supermarkets, banks, bars and restaurants, a post office and a twice weekly market.

Cognac (15km) is an attractive Medieval town with narrow cobbled streets and elegant Renaissance facades. It is here that the world renowned cognac has been created since the 17" century. World famous firms such as Hennessy, Otard, Rémy-Martin and Courvoisier are located here. Join a guided tour to discover the history of Cognac, its vineyards, distilleries and museums which show you not only how it is made but proudly display the oldest reserve of cognacs dating back to 1830. Then how about a taste!

Saintes (30 km) is located on the banks of the River Charente. It was the centre of Roman civilisation for the area and also a stopping point for the pilgrims en route for Santiago de Compostela. There remains a well-preserved amphitheatre, thermal baths, triumphal arch and cathedral. With its many restaurants, theatre, indoor swimming pool complex, power boat rental, river cruises and excellent, mainly pedestrianised shops, there is something for everyone.

Talmont Sur Gironde (42km) is officially one of the most beautiful villages in France. The enclosed and fortified village was founded around the church of St Radegonde in 1284, on the orders of Edward 1st of England. In the village, whitewashed houses and blue shutters are revealed behind the glorious hollyhocks. Towns and villages around the estuary boast family friendly beaches, quaint shops and restaurants offering fresh seafood and oysters.

A variety of local activities are available including golf at one of the various 18 hole courses, Go Karting at St Genis. The Gironde Estuary offers sports opportunities such as swimming, sailing and surfing. Many local towns steeped in history with their beautiful buildings and churches are well worth a sightseeing visit as are the local vineyards who produce cognac, Pineau des Charentes (a regional aperitif, made from a blend of lightly fermented grape must and Cognac eau de vie) and wine. The area is also popular with anglers as the Charente and Saune Rivers provide a variety of fishing to suit every angling taste.

Details of all activities can be found in the gite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a fabulous three week family holiday in this beautiful gite. The pictures tell only half the story, and we were pleasantly surprised on arriving, as the all the rooms were very spacious and the whole house was well equipped with everything you could need on a holiday, including a washing machine. The gite is in a small development of only four houses, and the garden is large with a sunny aspect and not overlooked. The splash pool is perfect for cooling off, and is plenty big enough for a family of four (our family includes a 12 and 15 year old) to use altogether to play ball or even float about on lilos! There is a handy BBQ which we made use of almost every evening, eating outside relaxing and enjoying the peaceful countryside. The owners Karen and George live next door. They are very welcoming (leaving a much appreciated welcome pack of essentials including bread, wine, milk, butter, cheese ham and jam), friendly and on-hand for anything you need, but most importantly, totally respect your holiday privacy, happy to leave you to your own devices if you so wish. The location is absolutely perfect for exploring this beautiful area of France. Close by there are many pretty towns to visit: Pons, Cognac and Jonzac are the nearest. We also had many fabulous day trips to areas all within a 90 minute drive: Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Royan, Talmont, Brantome, La Palmyre, Saintes, also great castles and of course, educational distillery tours in Cognac!...too many to mention, but all of these places offer a variety of activities to keep all ages entertained. These included beautiful beaches, river walks, mediaeval towns, city shopping, kayaking, crazy golf, tree top climbing ropes, a zoo and a monkey sanctuary! There are boulangeries a few minutes drive away, and several large supermarkets are to be found about 10 minutes away by car. All in all, this is one of the best gites we have stayed in, it is a real 'home from home', which I would fully recommend without any reservation at all. We will definitely be returning!
