The Owner Recommends

Town of Pons

Only 5 minutes away. A beautiful town with cafes restaurants and a Donjon. Walks along the river shaded by the woods.


35 minutes to the lovely sandy beaches of Meschers or travel further to the Cote Sauvage (wild coast) for body boarding or surfing.

Town of Cognac

The famous town of Cognac where you can tour one of the many cognac houses. The town itself is beautiful and well worth wandering around.

Pons activities

Take a pedalo or canoe along the river or enjoy a glass of wine in one the cafes opposite the donjon and fountains. On hot days (which there are many) take a stroll through the cooler woods running along the river.

A lovely, spacious, converted old farm building tastefully decorated with all necessary conveniences in tranquil and picturesque surroundings but close to beaches and places of interest. Delightful and helpful family.
