The Charente Maritime’s Premier Gîtes / Self Catering Cottages
Perfect for Couples and Small to Large Groups of up to 26 Family & Friends
Les Capucines is a beautifully restored 18th Century Charentaise Farmhouse comprised of four spacious and well appointed self catering cottages/gîtes, the largest 3 of which can be rented to comfortably accommodate gatherings of up to 26 family, friends or work colleagues.
This unique property was built on the site of an old Roman encampment and is set in a tranquil village location. Surrounded by fields of sunflowers and a short distance to local shops, restaurants, cafés and bars, it is also just 20 minutes from the nearest sandy beach and busy market town.
Being so centrally located, there is an enormous variety of activities and places to visit within easy reach including; the historic old port of La Rochelle, the gorgeous island of Ile de Ré and the golden Atlantic beaches to the west; the ancient towns and villages along the majestic Charente river, including Saintes and Cognac, to the east; the Loire Valley, with its magnificent Châteaux, to the north; the beautiful rolling countryside of the Dordogne and the vineyards of Bordeaux to the south … plus everywhere in between!
If you feel more like relaxing, there is a very large, terraced swimming pool which is surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens and bathed in sunshine from dawn to dusk. In addition each cottage has its own barbecue (ready to fire up) as well as table and chairs for outdoor eating, with flexible dining facilities for up to 26 family and friends to eat together, either ‘alfresco’, under cover or inside.
New to Les Capucines is an in-room massage facility which is available for guests after long drives, bike rides, walks and swims or just because they feel like being pampered!
