About the property

Cottage in Lozay, St Jean d'Angely, Charente Maritime - Nestling On The Edge Of A Small Village

Our cottage lies nestled in the small village of Lozay in the south west region of France known as Charente Maritime. This area still retains the old fashioned feel of traditional France noted for its high percentage of sunshine and long balmy summer evenings. A place to relax as you meander through the rolling acres of sunflowers and maize in the beautiful rural countryside. Villages remain unspoilt, the people friendly and the small bars and restaurants offer classic French cuisine and wines at reasonable prices. Lozay itself is a small rural village famous for its Romanesque church. The small market town of Loulay is 5 minutes away with a small supermarket, boulanger, butcher, bar and restaurant. St Jean d'Angely is only 15 minutes with its classic buildings, squares, shops, bars, restaurants and famous Abbey. Horse riding is available nearby, tennis and swimming at Loulay or at St Jean. There are superb golf courses at Niot, Saint and La Rochelle. A truly tranquil retreat!

About Joanna Brown

Hi my name is Jo,

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or queries. I've spent many a summer holiday in the area so know all the best places to visit.

Joanna Brown purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Joanna Brown chose Lozay

My parents bought the cottage in 1994. As children we spent many happy holidays in France and we all fell in love the the Saint Jean area. It is so peaceful and quiet, somewhere you can get away from the fast pace of life...It has easy access to many places. La Rochelle, Cognac. So if you could tear yourself away from the sun lounger there are many exciting places to visit.

Charming rural cottage but with easy access to lots of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in Lozay, the cottage is well equipped and has loads of character. We especially loved the little walled courtyard eating area. At night it lit up like a secret garden. Just gorgeous!!!!!

I would definitely recommend the region, Saint Jean is a charming market town with a lovely local market on a Wednesday and Saturday morning. We also visited La Rochelle and Fouras.

There was also a beautiful heated pool with surrounding garden to chill out in. Just lovely with a glass of wine .

Chatelaillon Plage is the nearest beach about 40 minutes away with the wonderful Atlantic beaches less than an hour.


The nearest airport is at La Rochelle, 50 minutes. Poitier is ninety minutes and Bordeaux one hour and a half. Easy Ferry crossing from Portsmouth to St. Marlo three and a half hours or Caen five and a half hours.


Loulay is 5 minutes away by car but makes a nice walk. St Jean d'Angely is 15 mins by car and Niort 30 minutes.

As well as the seaside towns there is easy accessibility to Futurescope at Poitier and the roman city of Saintes. Right on the edge of the wine growing regions of both the Bordeaux and Cognac regions, this is the wine taster's heaven!

Further Details:

In the little town of Loulay there is a small Super-market, two boulangers, two butchers, a hairdresser, newsagent, bar-restaurant, bank and a market on Friday morning.

In St Jean d'Angley, which is much larger, there are many Restaurants, bars, shops, market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, several large supermarkets, museum, very large indoor swimming complex, canoeing, cinema and during the beginning of August 2 weeks of open air theatre.
