The Roman amphitheater and triumphal arch at Saintes, the many Cognac houses along the Charente at Cognac, The coastal beaches at Royan, I'lle D'Oloron or La Rochelle. The oild cite at Angouleme, the many Romanesque churches and Gothic catherdrals, or Furturoscope at Poitiers. Something for everyone and most all reachable between 30 and 60 minutes drive.
We had a wonderful 2 weeks here with our 2 young daughters. The swimming pool was ideal for the children and there is a table tennis table, BBQ area and good sized garden too. There is a nice aspect to the gite in the morning and a spectacular night sky also. There is plenty to offer locally with nice parks and lake to swim in near Matha and also at Cognac. It is well worth making the trip to the Atlantic coast with near perfect beaches for an active young family. Overall we would thoroughly recommend the gite for a family holiday,
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review Richard, it is very much appreciated. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
