Logis de La Prise is set in the peaceful grounds of Chateau de La Prise.
Originally home to the caretaker of the chateau, Logis de la Prise has been completely renovated to a very high standard yet still retains the period charm of a rural French cottage.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms, the first of which is situated in the eaves of the building with an en suite shower room and views to the west over the surrounding countryside and woodland. The 2nd is located on the ground floor overlooking our pretty formal garden. Also on the ground floor is the modern family bathroom with its luxurious walk in drencher shower and separate bath.
The remainder of the ground floor has been completely opened up with windows on 3 sides to ensure a beautifully light and spacious living area and a fully equipped quality kitchen. An original fireplace with logburner surrounded by comfortable seating completes the picture.
The Logis also benefits from its own outside space, including a south facing seating area and a private garden with terrace.
Situated close to the market town of Surgeres and within easy striking distance of La Rochelle, it is a perfect base to explore everything the Poitou-Charentes has to offer.
Fully equipped quality kitchen with solid birch worktops, included are an integrated dishwasher, electric oven and hob, microwave, double sink and drinks fridge with ice box. The kitchen is also equipped with a large rustic dining table and 6 chairs.

At Chateau de La Prise itself there are the attactive gardens, woodland walks and excellent birdwatching, not to mention a full sized croquet lawn that guests are welcome to try!
The countryside surrounding the property has many well signposted walks and mountain bike trails, taking in some of the lovely rural villages.
Local attractions are the tranquil canals of the Marais Poitevin or 'Venice Vert' (Green Venice) and the excellent local Zoo (Zoodysee) in the forest at Chize. Local towns include Surgeres with its tri-weekly covered market and walled château, and St Jean d'Angely with its bustling old streets, relaxing squares and stunning bell tower. Also within easy striking distance is the historic city of La Rochelle. The stunning old port area, excellent seafood restaurants and the renowned aquarium are just a few of its many attractions. Just off the coast of La Rochelle is the exclusive Ile de Re (reachable via a toll bridge) with sandy beaches and beautiful old fishing ports.
