The property opens out onto acres of raw farmland where there's not much to be heard other than the tweeting of birds and the tooting of the local boulanger who delivers fresh baguettes to the hamlet several times a week. However, hop in a car and you can be amidst the hussle and bussle of a busy market town within 10 minutes. St. Jean d'Angely, Cognac, Saintes and La Rochelle are also all within easy reach. More

We stayed at Le Beau Fief in Spring of this year. The gite is a beautiful boutique property, lovingly decorated by the owners. Set in the grounds of their larger property, the gite still retains complete privacy and enjoys private access to the large courtyard...More

About the neighbourhood
Aulnay, St Jean d'Angely and Matha are all a short drive away, each offering a selection of supermarkets, cafes,bars, restaurants and banks as well as weekly markets which sell fresh regional produce. St Jean d'Angely is the bigger of the three and has a pretty lake & picnic area with canoes & pedaloes for hire. A go-carting circuit is situated on the edge of the town. There are usually weekly brocantes in the nearby towns during the summer, as well as the splendid foires which are huge markets, that dominate the town centres for a few hours. The best are probably Saintes on the first Monday and Rouillac on the 27th of every month. The chateaux at Dampierre-sur-Boutonne, La Roche Courbon, Crazannes and Panloy are nearby. The untamed, sandy beaches of the Côte Sauvage are around an...
