• B&B La Rochelle Lodge, Sainte-Soulle

    Home from home with B&B at La Rochelle Lodge

    If you like the atmosphere of staying in an elegant family home and feeling like a personal guest, you’ll love La Rochelle Lodge, a gorgeous country house in typical Charentais style in the heart of Poitou-Charentes.

    You’re just ten minutes from La Rochelle and the French Atlantic Coast when you book bed and breakfast in one of the five charming guest rooms, with easy access also to the Ile de Ré and Ile d’Oléron, the marshland of the Marais Poitevin and the maritime heritage town of Rochefort.

    Each room at La Rochelle Lodge has been individually and imaginatively furnished. Perhaps you like the neutral colours of the Nature room, Exo-Chic, or Linen. Something more striking? Then maybe the Black and White room is for you with its striped soft furnishings, or the red highlights of the Art Deco room. All five bedrooms feature exposed brickwork and wooden beams, tv, internet access and hairdryer.

    Start your day with breakfast in the kitchen or sun terrace, and enjoy fresh bread and pastries, locally cured ham, cheeses and home-made jam, plus a choice of teas, coffees and juice. And relax after a day’s sightseeing around the secluded swimming pool.

  • Gite Du Coq à l'Ane, Marais Poitevin

    Meet the local donkeys at Du Coq à l’Ane in the Marais Poitevin

    Few children can resist a donkey and the Poitou-Charentes region is home to some of the most enchanting. Stay amongst these shaggy brown ‘Baudet de Poitou’ at Du Coq à l’Ane in Saint-Georges-de-Rex. Situated in the heart of the Marais Poitevin marshland, Du Coq à l’Ane offers various styles of family-friendly accommodation alongside a rare breeds farm and artisan soap workshop.

    The cosy gîte sleeps 2-4 people with a double bed on the mezzanine and a sofa bed and kitchenette below. Relax on the terrace or enjoy a barbecue whilst you watch the donkeys - you might even be lucky enough to see a foal. Alternatively, book one of three bright B&B bedrooms, a Mongolian style Yurt for four, or the Canadian adventure tent for five. Yurt and tent both have electricity and heating with shared toilets and showers – family camping with all mod cons.

    Watch owner Christelle Cornet make soap from pure donkey milk in the tiny workshop; learn about the seven French breeds of donkey; feed the friendly local goats; and collect the hens’ eggs. You can even go walking with a donkey who will obligingly carry your picnic. An unforgettable way to enjoy France’s ‘Green Venice’.
