About the property

Gite near Leoville, Jonzac, Charente Maritime - Peaceful Location, Large Garden and a Heated Pool

The gîte at Chez Piron is a beautiful blend of old world charm and new world convenience, the only thing you need to bring is yourself. It is set in a large mature garden with plenty of space to laze about on those long hot summer afternoons. If it gets too hot, the pool is only a few metres from the front door. After your afternoon nap, the small terrace on the south side, overlooking row upon row of orderly vines, is an ideal place for that light evening meal. Come and enjoy the legendary Charente Maritime sunshine whilst surrounded by the deafening tranquillity of the beautiful countryside. Forget the noise and dirt of the city, and wake up to clean air and birdsong. An ideal location for those long lazy summer walks, or for the more adventurous, those not so lazy bicycle rides. And for those days when you feel like pulling yourself away from the pool, there is a wealth of culture and history. Come and enjoy the Charente Maritime sunshine whilst surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Calme et reposant

  • 5 of 5

Lieu idéal pour se reposer. Vacances plus que réussies. Le gîte est magnifique, spacieux et superbement aménagé, encore plus beau dans son environnement qu'à travers les photos.

Grand merci aux propriétaires qui ont été très accueillants et sympathiques.

Très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Propriétaire très aimable et flexible: nous avons réservé la veille et Madame Camilleri a gentiment accepté de nous recevoir au pied levé. De charmantes petites attentions nous attendaient à notre arrivée: boissons, quelques courses de première nécessité, ...

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce gîte joliment décoré, spacieux et bien agencé.

Nul doute que nous reviendrons lors de notre prochain séjour en Charente maritime, région que nous affectionnons.

Activity and Interests


If you prefer the sea (and I say, why not?), then the beaches and coves of Meschers are only 50 mins drive away. Or why not try the Côte Sauvage a little further north, (about 1 hour 10 mins drive) with its big beaches and bigger waves.

If you want something a little less wild, but no less exciting, the famous beaches of Royan only an hour's drive away, offer wide open beaches with lots of space. These are patrolled by life guards, and watersports are available on site.
