About Chantal Besombes

I am a retired psycho-pedagogue who loves decoration and gardening. My husband is passionate about local history; he will show you the village and the region.

Chantal Besombes purchased this house in 1975

Why Chantal Besombes chose Rochefort - Marennes area

This is a family house and we have often stayed here with family and friends in the last 40 years. We love this region and we enjoy sharing our enthusiasm and help you discover it. We are also very proud of our house; it is very beautiful and pleasantly decorated. We really love it and hope you will appreciate it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

This house exudes serenity and is very relaxing. It is located at the end of the village in a quiet area. It is at the edge of pastures and clearings where there are many birds. If you like nature, I think you will like this place. There are several rest and relaxation areas. In front of the house, there is a flower garden with a stone bench and an ornamental back garden with a large lime tree under which it is pleasant to read, draw, paint, or rest. There is an adjacent veranda, a large garden on the side with a secured pool available where you can swim under cover, and a large deck, as well as a large green space under a cherry tree.

It is a magical place for children. Our pool boasts large Roman stairs, a small pool, and a big pool. In the surroundings, there are many activities including strolls or rides in the marshes, tree climbing, La Palmyre Zoo, the Ferme de Magné with animals that children can touch, free carousels, La Rochelle Aquarium, the new beach of Marennes, amongst others. At the same time, those looking for an active holiday can easily practice water sports or access night clubs. We love everything relating to the sea, this is why we love this place. The village has a small fishing port “Le Port Paradis” where you can travel up the Seudre River to the sea. It is surrounded by huts selling oysters. We might be able to organise an excursion out to sea with an oyster farmer where you can fish for oysters and do other related activities. On site, you can also enjoy many possible activities, festivals, visits, concerts, and shows in the surrounding area. We have the benefit of being close to everything while being in a quiet area.

sejour famillial ete 2016

  • 5 of 5

très beau séjour familial dans cette charmante maison charentaise où nous avons apprécié la grande piscine.

Nous avons profité chaque jour de la plage de Marennes très bien adapté à la nage et aux enfants.Pour nous y rendre nous empruntions une route qui longeait le marais tout proche où les amoureux des oiseaux peuvent y voir des chouettes, des faucons, des cigognes et des échassiers...

Les propriétaires tout proches sont très discrets et de bons conseils.

Belle demeure

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances dans cette demeure. Elle est assez grande, étant parti à 12 chacun a pu avoir son espace. La piscine est de bonne taille et le jardin très agréable. L'accueil a été très sympathique, même si les propriétaires sont à côté, ils sont très discrets et du coup on ne s'en aperçois pas.

Tout petit village, très calme. Les plages sont un peu loin mais cela ne nous a pas déranger.
