About the property

FR6484

Logis de la Croix was a 17th century fortified farm that has been carefully renovated to give 4 individual family holiday gites. All of our gites have a private terrace with a gas BBQ, all have clear views over the enclosed pools area and the large playing field with children's area. Located on the edge of a small village the views are over open farm land, with almost no traffic its ideal for walking or cycling with young children. We are only 5 minutes from the market town of Matha. To the South about 25 minutes away is Cognac, and about 35 minutes away is the historic city of Saintes. St Jean D'angely with its famous weekly fish markets is only 20 minutes away. The coast around the Charente Maritime has dozens of sandy beaches and coves.

About Martin

We spent several years looking for the ideal property to start our new adventure in France. Logis de la croix ticked all the boxes, quiet village location, fantastic views, not far from the shops and main towns and lots of space to make it our own.

We moved from Poole in Dorset to our new home in France just before Christmas 1999. With 2 young children, Louise aged 8 and Elliot aged 7. We had a month plus the fun of Christmas to help the children get used to the move.

We soon got started on our big project, with our first 3 gites ready for the summer of 2002. The fourth gite and our own home were completed the following year.

Martin purchased this house in 1999

A fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Set in the sleepy hamlet of Gibourne, in a rural landscape covered in sunflowers this is the perfect place for families to chill out. We were a party of 7 comprising 3 generations from ages 4 to 72! We had a stress free but greatly enjoyable stay in the "Logis" Gite which was spacious and beautifully decorated. This was our second stay in 3 years and we were delighted to see Martin and Madonna had continued to update the gite with new curtains and furnishings.

The pool was a joy for us all but especially for the teenagers and 4 year old. Visits to La Rochelle, Cognac, Saintes, St. Jean d'Angely and the Europe beating Zoo at La Palmyre are all within easy reach.

Martin, Maddona and Martin's parents Mary and Colin are a delightful family who made us very welcome and gave us every attention. Thank you Colin for the archery lessons. We hope to return again. This is a very special holiday venue.
