2 peaceful gites and 4 B&B rooms surrounded by fields of vines - with a pool to share and La Grande Maison an easy drive

Along the rustic track to a long, low nobleman's house walled behind vines, and sweet Sophie to welcome you with a glass of their wine. All is beautiful inside and flooded with light: lofty ceiling beams painted white, 17th-century terracotta looking like new. Elegant beds are topped with blankets and sheets; two rooms have kitchenettes, one opens to the garden. A stone fireplace stacked with logs dominates the irresistible salon, and home-grown grape juices join homemade jams at the table. Explore the pretty Coran valley and the river on foot or by bike, and visit historic Saintes with its amphitheatre and cathedrals.

Local points of interest from Sophie Boutinet Mangeart:

Local points of interest from
Sophie Boutinet Mangeart:

  • This ancient and aristocratic house has been a stately home since the 15th century right up until the French Revolution. It was only until after the Revolution that it came into our family. It was therefore left uninhabited for 200 years.
  • The abbey Fontdouce, dating from the 11th century lies 3km from the Logis de l'Astrée. One can reach it on foot by hiking the GR4 trail.
  • The archaeological site of Saint Césaire, 3 km away covers all current known truths about the Neanderthal man, a skeleton of whom was found 30 years ago in the valley.
  • The Logis de l'Astrée makes for an excellent starting point for discovering Roman art. The surrounding villages are rich in interesting Roman churches.
  • On the agricultural plot we cultivate a fair amount of produce. Not only grapevine but also aromatic plants, such thyme, oregano, chamomile, peppermint and rosemary.
  • We can welcome you to the family plot, 20 km from us, for a Cognac taster, a drop of 'Pineau des Charentes', a local spirit and a tour of the distillery. .
