Gites Les Grandes Ecures - First Floor
Stunning gite (all on the first floor) with shared pool, nr Matha & Cognac (ground floor also available). The gites are set in a traditional Charentise courtyard and are barns lovingly renovated to provide comfortable modern accommodation whilst still retaining many of the original features.
The gites both have two bedrooms: one with a king-size bed and the other one two single beds. It has an open-plan living/dining room and kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, hob and oven.
As there are two gites on site (one on the ground floor the other on the first floor), these would be great for families wishing to bring parents (grandparents) or groups of friends as the gites are completely self-contained but within the same building.
Both the gites are children friendly and we have a cot, high chair and z-bed available if needed.
Outside there is a 10m x 5m (shared with the owners) salt water swimming pool which also benefits from a fully retractable cover (enabling you to use the pool even on those rare days when the sun is not shining) with sun loungers and pool toys, set in an acre of private garden with views of the beautiful countryside. The outside also has a covered eating area (the hanger) with 2 bbq’s a food preparation area (with toilet and washing machine) and a collection of toys and games for all ages including table tennis, trampoline and wooden climbing frame. The cars are parked in the courtyard the other side of the gites from the pool and garden so as not to interrupt the views or disturb your holiday.
Our gites have the benefit of feeling lovely and secluded on the edge of a hamlet with beautiful views of the Sunflower fields and vineyards, but only 10 minutes away from Matha (our nearest town) or for more night life or shopping only 20 minutes from Cognac and 30 from Saintes. Thus providing a great base to relax and from which to explore this beautiful region and the varied attractions of the Charente-Maritime and Charente. Close to the beautiful historic towns of Cognac, Saintes and St Jean D’Angley but also within easy reach of the lovely beaches of Royan, La Rochelle and the Cote Sauvage.
We live in the house on the other side of the courtyard from the Gites and are there to provide you with any assistance you may need with your stay (ideas on places to visit or eat) or to leave you in peace to enjoy your relaxing holiday at Les Grandes Ecures.
