"Le Grand Bois" is situated in the delightful rolling french countryside, on the outskirts of a small hamlet, surrounded by sunflowers and vineyards, between Cognac and Bordeaux.

Charente is the sunniest region in France next to the Cote d'Azur with lots of long hot days and magnificent sunsets !!


The accomodation provided is of the highest standard and caters for your every need. We welcome small children, extended families, couples or groups of friends ~ in fact everyone is welcome to share in our little bit of paradise !


The Swimming Pool and Wooded Garden.

The swimming pool is exclusively for the use of clients. It is 10 x 5 meters with roman steps and is surrounded by a wall with self locking gate for client privacy and the safety of small children. The pool is open from May through to the end of September.

The pool is checked and cleaned daily.

The garden has fruit and nut trees and our own row of vines which provides two types of eating grapes in late summer.

We are surrounded by fields of sunflowers, maize, wheat and of course vines.

There is lots of space for children to safely play ballgames, boules or use the garden swing whilst still in view from the gite terraces.

You can also disappear under a shady tree with a glass of wine to catch up on your reading or just for a snooze !
