Where once stood enormous wine vats in our barn, now stand our beautiful, modern gites. Completed in 2011 and 2012, the gites have had many visitors already, all of whom are seduced by their charm and their wonderfully peaceful surroundings. Contemporary, fully equipped holiday homes, whilst retaining some features of their previous life as barns! The Orchard offers you a stay in quiet, rural wine-making countryside yet beaches, villages and bustling towns can all be found within a 30 minute drive. Beautiful Bordeaux can be reached in 70 minutes and La Rochelle is the same distance. Lots of birds, hoopoes, harriers and cuckoos are among the locals! Veru quiet roads ideal for walking or biking.

A very charming cottage, very quiet, well equipped and good bedding. The reception was perfect. Due to its location we could easily radiate between La Rochelle and Bordeaux. We had a very good week, thank you Sarah!

Our delight at first arriving at this lovely gite continued throughout our one week stay. It was bliss to look out over the vineyard and hear nothing but birdsong. The welcome basket of fruit, veg, milk, bread and wine was a lovely and unexpected touch...More
