The Charente gite holiday gites featured here comprise two refurbished cottages each with a master bedroom and a twin bedroom. Each has been fully refurbished without losing any of its original rustic charm. Both gites, when used together, can accommodate 4 - 8 people and are ideal to be booked together by families, or by a family with one sent of grandparents.

Each Charente holiday gite has its own paved terrace areas and access to a swimming pool. Nest to the swimming pool is a shower and a drinks cooler, and sunloungers, tables and chairs are provided around the pool area. While each gite has its own private compound directly by it, these can be opened up to become adjoining if the two gites are used concurrently by the same family or party.

Charente is a department in the Poitou-Charentes area, in south-western France, named after the Charente River, the most essential river in the region, and also the river beside which the two biggest towns, Angouleme and Cognac, of the region are sited.

The adjacent area is noted for its beauty and color, and the gorgeous coast around La Rochelle and Royan, is very beautiful and is known for its many sandy shores. This makes it a great environment for any Charente gite holidays. The Cognac region supplies boat trips and obviously, many Cognac houses with tastings and tours.
