Where is it?


Buzzy restaurants
Le Gabarier on your doorstep in Port D'Envaux. Dine under a 100 year wisteria at L'Auberge des Glycines in Taillebourg. People watch from the harbourside seafood restaurants in La Rochelle. Gaze out at the ocean from the terrace of Le Petit Poucet at St Palais. Enjoy fine dining with the locals in the pretty garden or chic dining room at Le Bruant, St Porchaire
Cool bars
Test the Bordeaux wines at La Cave Passe a Table in Saintes. Dip your toes in the river while sipping a chilled Pineau or Rose at Les Quais de Taillebourg.
Cozy cafés
Great pizzas from our village bistro. Hot chocolate at L'Epicerie in Saintes
Retail therapy
Good selection of shops and supermarkets and a large daily market at Saintes, 10 mins drive away. Brocantes for antiques and curios.
Bit of culture
The Roman amphitheatre and Germanicus Arch in Saintes. Concerts at the Abbaye aux Dames. The 17th century walled fortress at Brouage. The amazing scuptures that have been created on the site of an ancient stone quarry on the edge of the village - watch the sculptors at work during the summer months
Walks in the park
Amble along the riverside paths around the village - look out for herons, storks and our elusive kingfisher! Follow the old railway path to the chateaux of Panloy and Crazannes, on the outskirts of the village
Spot of exercise
A swing in a shady hammock; hire a canoe from Les Canotiers at the little port in the village,or waterski at Taillebourg. Use our two bicyles to explore the many coutryside lanes and water meadows around us. There are three good golf courses within a 40 min drive and a small pitch and putt course 10 mins away.
Day tripping
Bordeaux for an urban fix and impressive architecture. Cognac for the brandy distilleries and jazz festival. The islands of Oleron, Aix and Re for beautiful beaches and unspoilt villages and of course the famous Bordeaux vineyards and the world heritage town of St Emilion can be easily reached by car.
