La Grange has 4 bedrooms sleeping up to 8 people. Le Chais sleeps 4 in two bedrooms.
The gites can be interconnected, via insulated double doors, to provide accommodation for up to 12 people. Both gites are fully equipped, have their own patio and barbeque areas and are set in the 3 acres of garden and grounds of Les Tilleuls.
The grounds include a 12 x 6 metre pool surrounded by decking with sunloungers for spending time lazing in the sun, there are also shady areas with tables and chairs for al fresco meals or the refreshing drink for cooling down.
Nestling at the foot of a hill amongst vineyards and sunflower fields, Les Tilleuls is in the village of Echebrune, close to the medieval town of Pons and the Roman towns of Cognac and Saintes. For dining out, there are bars and restaurants in Pons or go further afield to the coastal ports of the Gironde Estuary to taste the locally caught fish specialities. For the children, there are long sandy beaches in the resorts of St Georges de Didonne and Royan which also cater for a variety of water sports, tree climbing activities etc. with beach cafes and restaurants, everything for the family day by the sea.
We have a local baker that delivers, to the door, 6 days a week for your supply of fresh croissants and baguettes in time for breakfast. We can also arrange tours of the local wine and Cognac producers for those all important tasting sessions!
For the more energetic we have bicycles ideal for exploring the chalk roads that wend their way among the vines alternatively ambling around the local villages is a good way to soak up the Charantais charm.
