Spend time enjoying local markets, wine-tasting, cycling, canoeing and swimming at the riverbeach of Aubeterre and  Brossac lake or visit nearby Angouleme, Bordeaux and Cognac. Le Petit Maine's prime location also allows visitors to reach the seaside areas of La Rochelle, Arcachon or the caves of the Dordogne.
Once a farm, Le Petit Maine Gites are set in its own grounds of lawned areas, fruit trees and 5 acres of level land, lending itself to uninterrupted views of fields of sunflowers, wheat or maize.  The beautiful 10m x 5m pool is shared by both gites, allowing families to mix and play together.  Owing to the vast area of our grounds, the play areas of badminton, football, boules, swings, sandpit and slide are conveniently located in the grassy, garden area without being intrusive to the private patio facilities of each gite where garden furniture and BBQs are located.  The sheltered area by the pool can be used for sun shade or for dining.  Le Petit Maine hosts live inbetween the 2 gites and maintain the grounds and pool during your holiday.  Whilst allowing you privacy whilst you are on holiday, your hosts can be available to offer information on the local area.  Our website offers more information on the local area and attractions.
