About the Owner

Anne Marie and Gerard, the owners, have always liked to receive their friends and family. That's why they have decided to move to Charente and buy a property : Le Clos Marie.

Gerard is fond of writing and works in the garden. Anne-Marie likes painting, and all artistic activities but she is also a great cook who likes to use local and regional products.

They enjoy showing their guests all the different activities offered in the area and will be pleased to help you in your discovery of the region.

Their aim is to make you feel at home in France.

Relaxing Rural Retreat with Lovely Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Gerard and Marie have created a tranquil holiday escape on their beautiful property. My lack of French and their limited English speaking abilities restircted our communication but they were able to cater to our every need without difficulty. Gerard and Marie made us feel most welcome in their home and also respectfully gave us space to relax and unwind. This a great location to make day trips to many interesting places like La Rochelle, Saintes and Cognac. What a treat!

From the Owner

We love this area and especially the calm of our countryside, the cultural venues. It's not so far from big cities such as Niort. We are 1 hour from the sea. We have the TGV station Niort and the airport La Rochelle close to our home so it's easy to visit us.

From the Owner

Our property is in the typical style of Charente houses and has been renovated keeping the original features like the stoned walls and beams. If you feel like a moment of relaxation you will find a spot in the large garden which in season is full of roses. Or you may prefer to find a sunbed around the swimming pool for sunbathing or swimming in the crystal clear water. You can also enjoy a drink and a good book on the terrace.
