About this property

Tranquil, Perfect for Couples or Small Families. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

La Fleur is a lovely 2 bedroomed gite wonderfully converted from a barn perfect for a couple or small family situated in the small hamlet of Touron close to vines and sunflowers. It is one of two gites on the same site but not attached. La Dominique has 3 bedrooms so both gites can be booked together for larger parties. Lovely walking and cycling, especially mountain biking countryside. Just under a mile from the village of Soubran which has a Boulangerie, shop and Post Office. Boisredon just 2 kms away has an Epicerie (local shop). The larger town of Mirambeau is 7 kms away with large supermarket, restaurants and a few shops. The famous Spa town of Jonzac with its small Chateau is 15 minutes drive and during July/August they have a great Night Market where you can eat, drink and enjoy live music. Nearest airport is Bordeaux just under an hour away.

La Fleur has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom which also has a cot or a third bed can be put into this bedroom. It has a separate kitchen and large lounge with dining for 5 people, a sofa and easy chair, bookcase with many books, toys and games for the young ones. It has its own covered private terrace with bbq close to the swimming pool and garden. The heated swimming pool is fenced and has a pool alarm for extra safety.

We have all the necessary baby/toddler equipment you need including high chairs, toddler steps, bed guards, potty, baby bath, baby mat, sterilisers, blenders so please ask.

We are situated only a 15 minute drive to the Gironde and Blaye is 25 minutes away where you can take the car ferry across to the beautiful Medoc. Its only 35/40 minutes to the nearest beaches and a little further on is a Grand Cote with many bays to enjoy. Royan is a lovely seaside town to visit and St Palais sur mer (our favourite) is 55 mins away with the wonderful Chez Bob Restaurant situated overlooking the beach, just lovely. The zoo at La Palmyre is definitely worth a visit. We have two great swimming lakes one at Montendre (10 minutes drive) and the other at Jonzac (15 minutes drive). Both have many activities and Jonzac has a lovely restaurant. Cognac is 45 minutes drive and the Roman town of Saintes is only 40 minutes drive, definitely worth a visit. The beautiful city of Bordeaux is under 1 hour away and La Rochelle with its fabulous Aquarium is 1 hour 15 minutes away.

10 / 10 The Four Topps 23 January, 2018

We visited Charente Maritime in June 2017 and stayed in the La Fleur gite at La Maison Bleue. It was the perfect week away, in the perfect place. We live in Yorkshire and flew into Bergerac, a really easy drive on quiet roads got us to the beautiful and tranquil Touron in no time.
The welcome basket of wine, bread, butter, cheese, jam, local pastries...was such a lovely touch. La Fleur was well equipped with everything we needed as a family with a 1.5 and 4 year old. Beautifully furnished and stocked with toys, books, dvds to keep the children happy.
There is a beautiful pool, with sun lounges and inflatables, safely surrounded by a fence and locked gates. The Garden has all the play equipment needed, trampoline, playhouse, ride ons, swings, slides etc
Surrounding area
There was so much to keep us happy and relaxed at the gite, but we did explore. Beaches, old towns, chateaus, vineyards, a really stunnng part of France and Royan Zoo was fantastic.
Paul, Tanya and the girls were the perfect hosts. Always on hand for any questions, a very informative welcome pack is provided in the gite, but their recommendations were always a success. Such a lovely family, and really made our holiday perfect. The girls playing with our two was very welcome, and always enjoyed. Wine tasting on Monday night by the local vineyard was a great touch, and thoroughly enjoyed by all!
I can't recommend this place enough, especially if you're looking for a family break.
