About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Deborah Cakebread

We have lived in St Savinien since 2004 and love Quai des Fleurs, being right on the river Charente yet within a short stroll of the picturesque town centre it really is the best of both worlds.<br/>We own and run a property management company in the Charente Maritime and are fortunate to have some amazing properties in this beautiful part of France as well as our own

Year property purchased 2014
Why this location? Saint Savinien is a beautiful market town on the banks of the Charente, it's ideally located for La Rochelle and Bordeaux and so offers us the peace and beauty of a small French town but within a short distance of the Atlantic coast and beautiful cities.
Unique benefits of property No 9 is an old town house on the banks of the Charente.
The house has been sympathetically restored and we have filled the property with wonderful art work, decoration and furniture.
In addition the property has a wonderful central heating system (ideal for cosy winter holidays) and modern kitchen and bathrooms.

The Owner Recommends

Activities

We recommend hiring a boat from the local boat hire company in St Savinien (Les Canotiers) and spending a leisurely few hours exploring the river.
For the more active we love all the water sports on offer locally, including water skiing on the river and surfing on the nearby Atlantic coast.
Fabulous restaurants are numerous and we provide all our guests with plenty of pre arrival info, to help plan their stay.
