Your home away from home in the sunny Poitou-Charentes at La Charronnière

It is our pleasure to welcome you to La Charronnière Gites | Holiday Cottages. In the Vienne, close to the boarders of Deux Sevres and Charente in the heart of the Poitou-Charentes Region, this beautiful area of France is the second sunniest region in the country. 

La Charronnière has a wealth of history behind it with parts of the property dating back to 1865 and it was once a mule breeding farm. The property has been owned by the Johnson family for the past 10 years.

2 gite complex with all the essentials and more

2 charming gites set around a pretty courtyard on 5 acres of land with a large heated swimming pool, outdoor kitchen/dining area and games hangar. A secured children's play area is conveniently located next to the gated swimming pool. BBQs are situated both in the courtyard and by the swimming pool for guest use. Guests can expect to enjoy many different activities onsite including mini golf, table tennis, darts, a pool table, and there is various equipment for other indoor and outdoor games. The gites are equipped with tables, chairs and parasols to enjoy al fresco dining. La Charronnière can sleep 16 people comfortably over both gites. 

The terrain is excellent for walking and cycling with wonderful views as you make your way around. You will find the fields full of sunflowers, corn and wheat alongside colourful wild flower meadows and glorious wooded areas. Wild deer, hare and birds of prey are regularly spotted and even to the naked eye the sky at night here is breathtaking. 

La Charronnière is situated close to the N10 between Poitiers and Ruffec. We are nestled in between the quaint villages of Chaunay and Brux. Chaunay has a small convenience store, post office, pharmacy, bakery, hairdresser, and tabac. Larger supermarkets can be found in Couhe, a 10 minute drive; Civray, a 15 minute drive; or Sauze Vaissais also a 15-20 minute drive.

La Charronnière offers both a relaxing holiday in rural France whilst being in easy reach of many popular attractions in the area. Vallee Des Singes (Valley of the monkeys) is only a 15 minute drive and the popular theme park Futuroscope is only 40 minutes away. There are many other activities to try such as the VeloRail or maybe kayaking in one of the many picturesque rivers around. 

At La Charronnière we endeavour always to make your holiday a special one to remember.
