Les Iris is within easy reach of the local towns of St Jean d'Angely, Niort and Saintes. Larger Towns such as La Rochelle, Rochefort, Angouleme, Bordeaux and Poitiers are an hour or so's drive away. The area is ideal for exploring the Poitou Charente region. Rolling hills and very little traffic together with some of the best sunshine in France makes it ideal for walking and cycling. Being at the heart of the Cognac region, numerous distilleries can be found nearby as well as local wine producers who welcome visitors for tastings. Why not try some of the regions aperitif Pineau, which is made from cognac and unfermented grape juice. Other attractions such as Coulon in the Marais Poitevin near Niort where you can explore its twisty rivers by boat, or just simply enjoy its marshes and outstanding natural beauty. The nearby Ile d'Oleron and Ile de Re with its many sea food restaurants, oyster beds, beaches and small colorful villages make a really fantastic day out.Numerous beaches are found within a relatively short distance, the nearest being Chatelaillon-Plage and Fouras next to La Rochelle which is about 60 minutes drive, where you will find many beach-side restaurants. Other beaches such as La Palmyre near Royan are also about an hour away. Or you can simply lounge around over a glass or two of wine by the pool whilst the bbq warms up. What ever you decide you will always be sure of a great holiday at Les Iris. More information on the area can be found on www.france-atlantic.com
Les Iris ticked all our boxes being dog friendly and having a fantastic pool in a great setting. Also Pat and Evelyn were both great and invisible hosts - being available if required for advice about the area.
We had a great two weeks holiday in a great countryside setting with easy access to the coast and many attractive towns and villages.
Thanks James & Felicity & Gilly for the nice review and we hope to see you out here again.
Les Iris is a fantastic rural retreat. Pat and Evelyn were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. Weather was really hot when we were there and Evelyn kindly offered us electrics fans to make sleeping a bit more comfortable (thank you). The cottage is wonderful, perfect size for a family of 4. The pool is great - our kids loved it. Location is beautiful - set amongst sunflower fields. Ideally located close to La Rochelle, Cognac and 'The Green Venice'. Definitely Recommend 10/10.
Thank you very much for your kind review. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you all had a nice holiday. Hope we will see you out here again soon.
