Le Martin-Pecheur is part of Beaumont holiday cottages which consists of a farmhouse dating from 1822 and 5 gites on a 10-acre site in the heart of the sunny Charente-Maritime.
There is plenty to see and do, with historic towns, like La Rochelle and Saintes, or lively seaside resorts, such as Royan all within about half an hours drive.
Rochefort, under 10 minutes away, is the nearest large town with a superb morning market, good shops, museums and historic buildings, many dating back to the 17th century when the town was founded as a defense against the British.
Smaller towns, for example the citadel of Brouage, as well as fascinating chateaux and the glorious beaches of the Cote Sauvage and the Ile d'Oléron are just as near - in fact our nearest beach is only about 6km away.
The area is a centre for bird-watching with several reserves within easy reach.

The electric heaters are rarely needed but we provide a fan which is sometimes required in the warm summers. There is an open fireplace and we can provide logs if required
There is a selection of books in each gite and if none of these are to your taste we have well over 1,000 books of all types in our own library for you to enjoy. We also provide boardgames etc. The games barn has table tennis, table football and we can supply you with racquets and balls to use at the all-weather tennis court
