a nice gite to rent in french countryside

Welcome to Gite with a pool.

We have two beautifully renovated properties in the grounds of our 18th century farmhouse, both private with their own gardens and with access to our pool.

Romazières is a tiny farming hamlet with a village bistro and one of the smallest romanesque churches in the area and is hidden in the gentle rolling countryside of the Charente Maritime, an area blessed by high blue skies and, they say, more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in France apart from the Cote d’Azur.

It’s an ideal  place for relaxing; for gentle cycling through fields of giant yellow sunflowers, picnicing in the magical forest of Aulnay…or even taking a pedalo in one of the little lakes nearby.

Our properties to rent

The Farmhouse

french gite with pool to rent for holidays

We only let this house occasionally as we live here full time. It is a ‘fermette’, an old-fashioned small farmhouse (over 200 years old) . When we bought it, it had been somewhat neglected, the old lady who farmed it having finally retired in her eighties to live with her daughter. We’ve renovated the house, retaining much of the original stonework, huge exposed beams and open fireplace. It is on two floors; upstairs there are three bedrooms, two doubles (one with two double beds) and…


The Studio

The Studio was a large barn attached to our house which we converted a few years ago to form a spacious, self-contained apartment. It used to be where the farmer made the family’s wine and pineau. It’s on one level, with French windows opening onto a secluded patio with access to the pool.
The Studio works very well as extra accomodation for friends or as a separate grandparents' space.
