Relax & farniente withdrawn from the beaches

Wild coastal beaches, oyster farms at Marennes Oléron, famous and charming islands of Aix, Ré and Oléron, vineyards, the Roman Saintonge architecture from the X° century, the white villages of stone and water, the living markets with fresh oysters, fish and products from the country, the cognac and famous Pineau des charentes. Patrimony, culture and festival in the superb historic cities of Saintes or La Rochelle Golf in Saintes, Historic reconstruction of the tall ship “Hermione” in Rochefort, aquarium of La Rochelle, green Venice near Niort, La Palmyre zoo and all the old roman churches and abbeys in the ancient villages around. Most of all relax and enjoy! The house in Varzay is located in the true center of this green and arty country far enough from the sea to enjoy the truth of this old province. Jogging on the beach of Saint Palais, breakfast in a bistrot at the living Royan market, siesta by the swimming pool at 'Les Morissons', classical concert at the baroque musical festival

Einzigartiges Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit zwei Kindern) haben hier ganz tolle Ferien verleben dürfen. Es ist ein einzigartiges, authentisches Anwesen mit viel Platz und Ruhe. Toller Pool (uneinsehbar), Fischteich (jeden Tag Fische gefüttert), eigener Brunnen und drei wundervolle Katzen (danke an Carlos, Pepita und Flippo) ließen unsere zwei Wochen Aufenthalt leider viel zu schnell verfliegen.

Vermieter sind sehr nett und sind sehr hilfsbereits. Rundum tolles Anwesen, was wir nur empfehlen können.

Enchanting Home From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect choice for anyone wanting peace and tranquillity in a rural setting, yet with easy access to the coast and interesting towns. The property is full of character, and because it is primarily a family home has a welcoming 'lived in' feel with lots of artwork and photographs around the place. There are a number of pleasant spots in which to relax and soak up the sun and the ambiance, but the area around the pool, which is conveniently close to the kitchen, was our favourite location. In the evening we enjoyed watching the many fish in the pond below the bungalow as the sun went down. Lovers of old buildings with quirky internal arrangements will adore Les Morrisons, the frail or very young may find the different floor levels at ground level challenging. Overall, highly recommended and a place I would certainly consider revisiting.
