Gite in Poitou-Charentes with private pool

Luxury secluded holiday house with private pool

Dating from the 11th century, La Commanderie des Templiers is a beautiful stone mill  on the banks of Le Ne, close to Barbezieux-St-Hilaire and surrounded by forest and local vineyards. As the name suggests, the original building was the command post of the Knights Templar during the Crusades.

Chez Meunier, our rental accommodation is a deceptively spacious house. With 3 double bedrooms, sitting room overlooking the private pool and huge kitchen diner, there is plenty of space for 6 adults. Outside is wooded silence. You can sit or swim in peace and because the surrounding area is protected the wild flowers and animals flourish here. The countryside is excellent for exploring; the roads are quiet and the gentle rolling hills and valleys are so welcoming, to walkers and cyclists alike.

Chez Meunier is just 4 kms from Blanzac where you can a very typical French lunch at the small bar, get the best bread and croissants in the area, buy all your daily essentials at the local supermarket and also it is here that you will find the pharmacy should you need one. Barbezieux-St-Hilaire is 9 kms away. A beautiful town with just about everything you may need. 4  big supermarkets, 5 bakers, bars and cafes and good restaurants. Plus a street market each Tuesday.  If you love the sea, the huge beaches of Royan are an hour away. Or for city lovers and only 30 minutes away is Angouleme, the capital of Charentes and the most beautiful walled city.

The Bordeaux wine trails are only 80 mins away. Medoc, St Emelion, Pauillac, Margaux, Lafite Rothschild etc. We are only 30 minutes from Cognac and the distilleries of Remy Martin, Hennessey etc. Locally there are very many small scale local producers of cognac.
