Wonderful family holiday
We arrived late at night to the little gite and a warm welcome from Pascal along with a cold bottle of wine. The house was clean, warm and perfectly suited for our needs. The garden and pool was ideal for our boys (14 and 10) to roam safely and enjoy the space including the games room which they loved. We found Pascal and Isabelle very friendly and eager to share their knowledge of this area and provide advice on local facilities. For a family this is a great place to stay as a base to explore this region and enjoy the beaches but we would recommend Ma Cagouille to anyone who wants a warm welcome in a peaceful and tranquil setting.
Activity and Interests
The Charente Maritime is everything you could ever want in a holiday. Sandy beaches that go on for miles, with interesting coves and calm waveless family bathing spots to the fiercest surf for the sporty. A wonderful climate second only to the Cote d' Azur with up to twice as much sunshine as the UK and most months 20-30 degrees warmer. St Jean d'Angely has an excellent water park with 5 swimming pools, water slides.

With an abundance of history Pons, Saintes and Rochefort are all within easy reach, or if you prefer La Rochelle and Royan with its many restaurants serving the finest food and wine. The vineyards famous for Cognac and Pineau are a sight to behold and the tasting is even better. A tour of the many cognac houses is a must. Saintes is a beautiful Roman town with wonderful architecture, narrow streets, interesting shops and street cafes. It still has traces of its Gallo-Roman past such as the Roman Amphitheatre. You can take boat rides down the Charente River which runs through the town where there are lovely parks, bars and cafes which run along its banks.

There is also a beach and an excellent Aquarium. This is the place for seafood, where masses of restaurants line the harbour, a great place to have a meal and people watch. The natural history museum is also recommended. La Rochelle is a great place for boutique style shops. Modern Royan is one of the largest seaside resorts in FraFrance. You can hire sailing boats at the Marina and take a trip around the bay. If you are here is July don’t miss the international music festivals. Saint Georges-de-Didonne has a great beach with dunes and pine trees.
