About the property

Stunning house in Nantille, Saint-Jean-D'Angely, Charente Maritime, Poitou-Charentes, France - Set Along Side Vines & Sunflowers & Close To The Family Friendly Atlantic Coast

This is our main property that we rent out for 6 weeks in the summer whilst we live elsewhere. It sleeps 6 + cot in comfort with the main bedroom benefiting from en suite facilities. A new extension has been added that can be used as either a garden room or cinema room. Our 10 x 5mtr heated salt water pool awaits the whole family or maybe to relax in the hot tub is your thing. For parents with young children/ babies then our new heated (to 31c for 8 months of the year) , 60cm deep pool will help little ones who are ready to learn to swim or just play for the first time in a pool under the supervision of their parents. Brand new bikes are free to use for all on our numerous quiet roads & tracks. Table tennis, table football, a 30mtr zip wire, football pitch, badminton & 2 trampolines will keep everybody entertained during your time here. With luck our various hens will provide you with plenty of fresh eggs & our vegetable garden will offer delicious fresh produce to consume with fresh local seafood & your favourite bottle of Bordeaux red.

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 now 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, but 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. We now have 2 young children who also love what we have created here from what was a sleeping beauty of a house & barns.

darren womack purchased this house in 2004

Why darren womack chose Charente-Maritime

Having moved from the UK in 2004 we wanted to find something different to just a house in France. We loved the Charente Maritime with its sunflowers, vines and fine sandy beaches but also wanted a perfect location to start our family and again - the Charente Maritime ticked all of the boxes. So here we are almost 13 years later & loving it!

What makes this house unique

The beautiful newly built garden room can also be used as a stunning cinema room (additional £140) as it has black out blinds all around. The main bedroom has a lovely French cherry super kingsize bed with ensuite, combine this with 2 heated salt water swimming pools, 6 seater hot tub & huge play area. Whist a sunny terrace at the front is a great place to soak up the sun. For those who would rather have shade then all around there are shady corners to sit & read a book. Once you've stayed in one of our gites you'll see why in 2015 78% of our guests were repeat clients from previous years!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much Darren & Sara for a fantastic relaxing stay in La Pommeraie. You certainly have thought of everything & all 3 kids really do not want to leave. The weather has been just right & it looks as if Dan will be trying to build a Pirate boat ( not quite as grand as yours) for the boys!

All the very best & hope to come back very soon.
