Degas is a large four-bedroom cottage set in the grounds of Le Vieux Monastere, a former monastery that has been sympathetically restored to a very high standard and consists of 7 cottages of various sizes. Go to our website to see more details and photographs of our cottages and facilities including a spectacular aerial video tour. The cottage has four large bedrooms and two modern shower rooms, whilst retaining character features such as oak beams and exposed stone walls. The ground floor is open plan, having a large sitting area with plenty of soft furniture, large oak dining table and chairs and fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine. Outside there is a large covered terrace with patio furniture. On-site there is a large heated swimming pool, large grassy area for playing and a separate games room. Le Vieux Monastere is set in open rolling countryside well positioned between the medieval town of St Jean d'Angely and the roman town of Saintes, both having shops, markets and restaurants.
