Situated with the grounds of a Charentaise Manor House, La Rose des Vents enjoys the micro climate of the Charente Maritime, the second sunniest region in France, and the two fully equipped luxury cottages are ideal for a long weekend, a week or mid week break throughout the year. Both luxury cottages have been sympathetically restored in keeping with the original features; wooden beams, stone walls, wood and terracotta floors and each enjoys bookcases filled to the brim with books, glossy magazines and board games to keep both adults and children amused. The private walled gardens each have a BBQ and garden furniture with outdoor candle lights allowing you to make the most of dining by day and by night under the expansive starry skies.
Resident owners Lyn & Graham are more than happy to suggest places to visit and will reserve restaurant tables, book tours of the Cognac Houses (Cognac is just 15 minutes away), river trips, rounds of golf and anything else that needs to be booked. Guests can enjoy the herbs, apples, pears, cherries, figs,apricots and plums growing in the gardens and orchard and there is a large grassed area for ball games, and badminton, swing ball and boules are available on site. Bring your own tennis racquet, as guests have access to the tennis courts in the commune, free of charge. On hotter days simply relax by the heated swimming pool.
No need to worry about going shopping on arrival at La Rose des Vents..afternoon tea and home made cakes are served to all guests on arrival. NEW! Guests staying, on a self catering basis, can now book an optional welcome aperitif and 4 course dinner with wine on their first night at a cost of just £30 per person - either to be served in their cottage, for a romantic meal (candles supplied!), no worries about baby sitting, they can put their little ones to bed- or for groups of adults dinner can be taken in the Manor House.
