Property Description

Just a 10 minute drive from La Rochelle, this property nestles in a very quiet position in large well tended gardens. With a private fenced swimming pool bordered by wooden decking, it is spacious and comfortable with all you need for a perfect holiday. The interior is cool with stone walls and rustic French furniture. The charming French owners live next door and can deliver fresh fish every day. The large garden has lots of shade and plenty of garden furniture. This makes the ideal holiday base for visiting the wealth of attractions of the Charente-Maritime, including La Rochelle, the arsenal of Rochefort or the green Venice canals of the Marais Poitevin. Saintes is less than an hour’s drive with its old cathedral, the River Charente with boat trips and trendy shops. The island of Ré or Aix for a day out can be reached by car or by ferry and children will love the aquarium at La Rochelle.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This is a comfortable period house in a very quiet country setting with large grounds, private pool and games facilities. The owner could not have been more welcoming. The location is both a strength and a weakness. On the negative side it is quite a long walk to the nearest village for supplies and a meal out necessitates the use of a car which immediately precludes the driver from enjoying the wines which should be a highlight of a French holiday. Hanging space for clothes is at a premium (one bedroom only) and sticking drawers in one room need attention. Sept 2012.
  2. Les Tourettes is an excellent cottage to rent which feels in the middle of nowhere whilst being a short drive (or leisurely walk) to the nearest village shop. The accommodation is overall excellent and the web-site pictures don’t do it justice. The pool however was freezing rendering it virtually useless most of the week as the weather wasn’t warm enough to appreciate such a cold swimming pool. We did use it on the one day of decent weather and it was certainly refreshing! Sept 2011.
  3. This cottage was perfect for our family; mum, dad, daughter 14 months and grandparents. There was plenty of space for us not to be on top of each other. The garden is all walled in, so perfectly safe for little one. There is plenty to keep everyone amused, including sand pit and toys, table tennis, table football, pool and toys and a hammock to relax in, should you be able to get in in the first place! The pool was cold as it was early in the year but it was spotlessly clean and we went in anyway, and it was fenced in so little one couldnt get near it. Inside there is a lovely big kitchen table to eat at but mostly we ate in the garden on the covered veranda. The bedrooms are all spacious and the twin room also had a beautiful cot although our little one was too big for it as she could climb out. There is separate toilet and shower room - the shower is huge. No bath but there was a baby bath provided. Also a changing mat was provided. There was also a selection of books and magazines, a DVD player and TV and playing cards.. Locally at Chatellalion there is a large sandy beach with several good restaurants along the sea wall and plenty of places to park. There is also a well laid out play area there too. Suitable for all ages. We visited Ile de Re which took about 20 mins and a bit longer to get to St. Martin de Re which is a stunning port town with lots of shops and restaurants around a picturesque harbour. Definitely worth the 9 euros to cross the 3k bridge to get to the island. Ars en Re also worth a visit. We had a great week and wished we had booked two and in fact may well book again next year. Many thanks. May 2011.
  4. Spacious accommodation, lovely private gardens, relaxing environment. Aug 2010.
  5. Location, size, gardens and character of the house. July 2010.
  6. The property was clean and tidy on arrival. The owner was welcoming and friendly. The garden and pool were excellent and our children loved the table tennis and table football. It would have been nice to have a visitors book so families could write notes on good restaurants, beaches etc. May 2010.
  7. Attractive acccommodation and spacious rooms. Aug 2009.
  8. The property can cater for all a familys needs, there was plenty of space and the accommodation was beyond our expectations. On our arrival we were greeted by the property owner who was very friendly and most helpful. June 2009.
  9. The garden was well maintained and was secure. The pool was fenced off which meant that the children could play outside in safety. June 2009.
  10. Spacious and well laid out. Modern cooker, fridge /freezer etc. June 2009.
  11. Peaceful location, excellent garden for small children. July 2009.
  12. Super pool which children loved .The property has a lovely enclosed garden which is well equipped with garden furniture, barbecue and table tennis. It’s not too far from local shop where you can buy fresh bread and croissants daily! June 2009.
  13. Excellent accommodation, very warm welcome. Holiday enjoyed by all. May 2008.
  14. The property is excellent for families with children. It is close enough to La Rochelle that you can travel there each day. We enjoyed that the property was not directly by the road or in the middle of a village. May 2008.
  15. Nothing but praise for your company! Great website, easy to use and accurate information. Les Tourettes surpassed our expectations. Fabulous accommodation and location. Perfect for a family with young children with absolutely everything you might need. Large garden well equipped with sandpit, table football, table tennis and fenced off swimming pool. Something to keep everyone happy! Thank you. July 2008.
  16. The brochure did not do justice to this property, which has been recently renovated to a very high standard. It was very comfortable and relaxing, and the large enclosed garden was ideal for children. June 2008.
