Built in 1875 it has a mezzanine twin bedroom and comfortably sleeps two. Perfect for a longer term winter let or romantic getaway. There is also a small bunk room if you have anyone come to stay.

Outside Amenities:  The windows look out over the famous palm tree and garden with views over the French countryside beyond. We hope you like peace and quiet as you won't hear anything other than wildlife at night and won't see anything other than stars as the mayor turns off all the street lights at 11pm.

Clients have their own secure off street car park. . We also have a large grassy area and an orchard for outdoor activities, eating area options (weather permitting) and a 100 meter field for throwing a ball for the dog.

We are an ideal base for exploring on foot, bike (we have some you can borrow), and by car. So you can be as active or restful as you like.

Surrounding Area:  Whilst this spot is lovely, we would recommend that you explore the area which will require a car. St Martin de Juillers is an ideal base set in the most beautiful rolling countryside. We are within easy travel distance of many local attractions. The Coast is less than an hour away with many beautiful beaches and resorts. Cognac is 30 minutes, Saintes is 25 minutes, St Jean d'Angely is 15 minutes. All are gorgeous towns with French markets and lovely architecture, churches, riverside walks and shopping opportunities.

La Rochelle is an hour away. Not only is it our nearest airport but the town and harbour are beautiful. Talmont-sur-Gironde and Meschers-sur-Gironde are among our favourite places to visit as is a boat trip round Fort Boyard (of TV fame). Bordeaux is well worth a day trip. Use the park and ride tram system, it's clean, modern and fab.
