Pretty Cottage . Rural Village Location With Enclosed Gardens and private pool



Updated: 30-Jul-2016
Cottage in Le Vert, located on the edge of the Charente Maritime region. Poitou-Charentes, France - Peaceful Village Location, Just A Short Stroll From The River Boutonne, Great For Kayaking

Situated in the centre of a small village is our pretty cottage with in-ground covered pool. Only a few minutes from Chize and surrounding villages with an excellent range of local amenities. Ideal for a relaxing family holiday within easy drive to the beaches around La Rochelle. The river Boutonne runs round the edge of the village, just a short stroll from the cottage where you can fish and kayak on the river. The garden is completely enclosed with a lovely in-ground covered pool and two terraces for al fresco dining.

We had a fabulous two weeks in this comfortable gite, in the hot weather the pool offered hours of fun with the water as warm as bath water.

We had a fantastic two weeks ! Cottage and pool have been great .

A very enjoyable and relaxing week. We thought the house was one of the best we had stayed in in France. The pool cover ensured the swimming pool was a very welcoming temperature.

Comfortable Gite

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday in this well equipped Gite. The village is very peaceful with a short walk to the river. The boulangerie was only a short drive away. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and the coast to visit La Rochelle. However we and our 2 young children were just as happy to play in the fabulous pool. Thank you for a stress free holiday!
