About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs June Smallwood-Rose

This is me busy at work in the office at the Logis. Keith and I (June) have had properties in France since 2003 and just love the slower pace of life and great food and wine. We moved to the Charente in 2015.

Year property purchased 2015
Why this location? The peace, tranquility and views of vineyards and sunflowers. We also love its proximity to Cognac and Pons offering a wide choice of restaurants, shops and culture. It's also close enough to the Atlantic coast for day trips to the beach.
Unique benefits of property We've carefully renovated the logis and gite to offer luxury accommodation in a stunning location. The period Charentais features are all left in the property combined with all modern conveniences such as dishwashers, good size rooms, log burners and luxury bed linen and towels.

The Owner Recommends

The beaches

You can get to the beach in just under an hour. There are several around the Royan area. We like St Georges de Didonne, Vaux sur Mer and Meschers sur Gironde.

Really beautiful quality immaculate gite in idyllic setting.
Lots of extras like bikes available although we didn’t get round to using them
Owners, Keith & June, can’t do enough to ensure you enjoy your stay
Would thoroughly recommend and would definitely stay again
We went canoeing on the Charente in jarnac with our 10&12 year old girls which was great and did the high ropes courses at abbaye fontdeuce which was a great day out and it went again would definitely go earlier as you can climb all day and beautiful setting for a picnic

Owner response

We’re so pleased you had a good time. Come back and see us again!

The property was everything and more that we hoped for. Keith and June were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The table d'hote is highly recommended as is the property in general.
