The House

Our very attractive 'Maison de Maître' (19th century) with lots of its original character, (classified **** in 2012 and 2017 by Charente-Maritime Tourism) had been completely renovated when we arrived in 2012. Set at the head of a lovely garden of 2800 square meters, our spacious house (98 square meters) is independent from the main house with its own path and a very high vegetal barrier separating the 2 houses.

LA CHADE is a charming rural location, peaceful and quiet near all commodities: Gémozac is the nearest small town: 5 minutes drive to supermarkets, pharmacy, doctors, post office, etc... Major towns for shopping (Saintes, Royan, and La Rochelle) are a short drive away and La Chade is also near the seaside (Royan, Saint-George de Didonne and la Grande Côte).

LA CHADE, according to our visitors, is the most perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the sunshine by the pool.
Set in vineyards and fields of sunflowers with beautiful blue skies, the nights are warm to sit out and just listen to nature whilst enjoying a BBQ and glass of wine. De-stress here...
