French Gites, Cottages and Villas
in the Charente Maritime region
of France
Chris and Wendy Blakeman and family have been living in the Charente Maritime region of South West France for 20 years,
keeping busy by building, renovating and managing self catering gites, cottages and villas in the St Jean d'Angely area. All our
properties are owned and managed personally by ourselves, so whichever gite or villa you choose you can be sure you will receive
personal service and a warm welcome.

We have a variety of self catering holiday gites, villas and cottages to choose from to suit all tastes. Our Child friendly gites are
perfect for families with young children, set in a family friendly environment with swings, slide, sand pit, trampoline and even a
pirate ship as well of course as the heated swimming pools, an essential for families with young children in the off peak seasons of
June and September.

If your family is older and you are after a little bit more luxury, then our well appointed villas, some with private swimming pools will
be more your style, with spacious, modern accommodation and all the comforts of home such as uk tv and wifi. For couples or
families preferring to be on their own, our stand alone cottages and villas, all with pools, are worth a look and all our properties are
an easy drive to the coast, beaches and world famous cities such as La Rochelle and Bordeaux.
St Jean d'Angely is our closest town,
small by uk standards it still boasts two
hypermarkets, banks, a thrice weekly
local market, a hospital and numerous
restaurants and bars. It is set centrally
in the Charente Maritime region of the
Poitou Charente; approximately 1hrs
drive to the coast, beaches and La
Rochelle and 1hr30 north east of
Bordeaux. All our cottages and villas
are between a 10 min to 30min drive of
St Jean d'Angely and are in a great
location to visit this beautiful part of
South West France.
All of our cottages, gites and
villas have swimming pools either
private or shared. They are all
cleaned and maintained by Chris
who takes great pride in their
regular maintenance. They are
heated*, so you can take
advantage of the cheaper prices
and quieter seasons yet still enjoy
the pleasure of swimming.

*Fontaine villa plunge pool is not
heated but easily reaches 27c in
the summer months
All our cottages and villas are self
catering accommodation. They are
approx. a 4 hr drive from St Malo, 6hrs
from Caen and 8hrs from Calais. We
have a number of airports within easy
driving distance; La Rochelle, Poitiers
and Bordeaux, with Limoges and
Nantes a little further. For detailed
