to our paradise
Nestled amongst the vineyards, Maison Tranquille is a 4 double bedroom (two of which can be adapted to twin rooms). This self catering gite sleeps 8 (10 if you don't mind a sofabed!) with a heated pool, table tennis and private garden, perfect for groups of friends and families looking for a peaceful holiday.
As soon as you drive into your own private and fully enclosed garden, you will begin to unwind and relax to the humming of the bees and the beautiful birdsong in this truly lovely rural setting.
Whether you choose to sit in the shade of the walnut tree or soak up the sun, perhaps even do some yoga, on the generous deck around your pool, you will be surrounded by a general air of calm.
When you enter the Gite you will find a cool and spacious interior, sympathetically restored, with great care taken to ensure your continued comfort. You will also find ample heating together with a wood burner, to ensure our winter visitors are kept cosy.
In the evening you can eat under the stars overlooking your pool, perhaps testing out your barbecue skills. However if you want a night out you can visit one of the many restaurants and bars in and around Cognac, which is a short 7km drive. We have a few favourites which we can recommend.
For the more energetic there are many things to do in the surrounding area.
There are a number of cycle routes. Cognac hosted the 2019 annual Semaine Federale for cyclists.
Walks are right on the doorstep, with part of the Santiago de Compostela route running nearby.
The huge golden sandy beaches of Royan with their numerous seafront restaurants make a lovely day out.
Golf du Cognac is just 15 minutes away, with a wide selection of golf courses within a one hour drive.
Not forgetting the many Cognac Houses, which are based in and around Cognac, many of which offer tours of their distilleries and tastings of their world famous drink.
