Gite in Pisany, Nr. Royan, Charente Maritime, Poitou-Charentes, France - Tranquil Setting Only 1km From Village Centre And Commerce

Situated on the edge of the village of Pisany in the centre of Charente Maritime. Pisany is well placed for all facilities needed to enjoy a holiday in a warm climate which rivals Mediterranean resorts of the South of France in the Summer. The best beaches in France are a mere 15 minute drive West of Pisany starting with the extensive sandy beaches of St Georges de Didonne. The Romanesque town of Saintes is 10 minutes East. We have 4 excellent Golf courses, all open to the public, within 30 minutes. The Gite is ideal for walking and cycling through the forests, vineyards and villages on our doorstep.

Wonderful place to unwind and relax

  • 5 of 5

A small peaceful well equipped cottage. We have just come back from a glorious 2 weeks holiday. It was a place to relax and get away from it all. Dominique and Pascale made us feel most welcome. On arrival the beds were made, clean towels provided and a great welcome pack of fresh milk, cheese, pasta, lardons and bread. All of this made a great start to the holiday after the journey. The pool was fantastic and made for lazy relaxing days swimming and reading. Dominique keeps the pool immaculate. The children had a great time. Saintes is a lovely town. The Amphitheatre and churches are all worth a visit. Saintes has a number of cafes and restaurants. When we could drag ourselves away from the property we visited Cognac a beautiful town. The small village of Piscany has an excellent bakery and it is within easy walking or cycling distance, using the bikes provided with the property. We will definitely be returning.

Peaceful Pisany

  • 3 of 5

Lovely setting, large garden and short walk to village. Gite Ok a little small but kitchen and bathroom adequate. Pool was superb and well maintained. Owners a little intrusive and although we cleaned the gite really well on leaving and washed bedding and towels which wasn't required they still charged us for a broken mirror that blew off the wall.

Owner's Response: Hi, We invest a lot for our guests spend their holidays in excellent condition and we are surprised that you considered it too intrusive. When a billing of case, it seems reasonable that it is retained in the rendering of dammage deposit, especially as we seek to minimize the cost by purchasing a discount store. Like all our tenants, you have made the cottage in the same clean condition as you had found a check in accordance with the lease, and we thank you. Best regards Pascale and Dominique

This is our second year and although its not overly large it's just what we wanted. Upon arrival we received a welcome pack of homemade jams and pate, and a selection of essentials which in our experience is not the norm. We had total peace and quiet and exclusive use of the pool. The owners are very hospitable, and are there to help if you need it, otherwise you are on your own. You will need a car, although you can walk to the village or take one of the push bikes provided.

Royan and Saintes are minutes away if you want a change of scenery. We had a lovely time and would like to return sometime in the future.
