About the property

FR5947

We have 4 beautiful, very different gites in close distance to shops,the beach, golf & much more. All of our gites in fact every room has exposed charantaise stone & oak beams. The 2 pools will keep everyone happy especially with the pool house that is full of inflatables & swimming aides. In early 2016 we added a large slide dropping into the main pool for even more fun for the children! Next to the pool we have also now created a snug with wicker furniture & a bar so you can relax with a glass of wine or your favourite beer. We also have a 6 seater hot tub (for use for adults) in the same walled garden as the pools. In the main, secure garden we have added a huge play boat (Pirates of the Caribbean themed) that has a 30mtr zip wire coming off it going across the garden (great for ages 6 & upwards), 2 trampolines, a football pitch, volley ball & lots more. We also have Truffle our piggy, chickens & a goose. All of the gites have fully fitted kitchens, flat screen tv's with UK/ French channels & DVD players. We have a bike shed with upto date mountain bikes along with a tag along, rear child seats, a trailer & cycle helmets. Every Tuesday we have 2 PADI instructors who give scuba diving lessons in the main pool for children & adults alike.

Stay with us & find out why over 75% of our guests come back again. If you are after a small, well designed gite complex that will keep you & your children entertained then why not stay with us.

About darren womack

We had a dream of moving to France so after getting married in early 2004 we decided to spend a few weeks in the Poitou Charentes area. I guess looking back to then we were pretty naive when it came to taking on a huge rebuild project as it's totally different to doing anything like this in the UK.

3 years later we opened our doors to our first guests & have been loving every year since welcoming guests new & old to our lovely family home & the stunning area that we live in

darren womack purchased this cottage in 2004

Why darren womack chose Charente-Maritime

Situated as we are in the middle of the Charente Maritime we are close to all the main attractions that the area has to offer. With 1000 more hours of sunshine per annum than London it has the making of a great location for your hols. We are 45 mins to the fine beaches around La Rochelle, Royan & the beautiful islands Ile de Re & Ile d'Oleron.

We love the quiet roads as we are keen cyclists. The area has mainly small undulating hills with large open spaces just perfect for a sunday spent biking around the local villages.

In the winter we go off to the Pyrenee's for family skiing.Its only 5 hours away from our front door & again another reason for choosing this side of France

What makes this cottage unique

4 idyllic gites set in the countryside yet close to main towns. You'll relax in an instant once you unpack your bags & let the children out of the gite door into the large play area!

Great shopping, restaurants and family fun are close by whilst the pool, hot tub and grounds will keep the whole family entertained when you stay with us.

For example who else has a huge play area brand new free to use mountain bikes, a heated salt water kiddies pool as well as the main salt water pool & a room full of baby equipment (pushchairs, buggies & booster seats).

Our gites are always having new features added so keep an eye on our personal website. For 2015 we have added a 'Pirates of the Caribbean themed 30mtr zip wire' to the gardens for the whole famly to enjoy. We have also added a beautiful snug area by the pool, somewhere to relax,read a book or take an ice cold drink from the mini bar. For the start of the 2016 season we've added a water slide into the main pool for even more fun for the kids & scuba diving lessons every Tuesday morning!

Wow. Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in the Mulsanne Gite, the hosts, Darren and Sara were perfect in every way, they have two girls Maya and Daisy who are very polite, the Gite was exceptional, clean and welcoming, a real home from home feeling. Darren and Sara were very attentative and nothing was too much trouble. Very knowledgable of areas, even introduced us to some of their friends. We would highly recommend a visit. The whole complex is a credit to them. BEAUTIFUL
