Why Nathalie Jarrard chose Chaniers
It is quite a story! The property was a former agricultural domain, built in 1675. You can still see the date engraved on the front porch, as well as two beautiful écussons on the main house. It was bought during the french revolution by one of our ancestors, as a 'bien national', while the former owner had to flee France so as not to be killed by the révolutionnaires as he was as an aristocrat and a land lord. We have managed to pass it down through the generations ! Thanks to the women of the family ! We have bookshelves full of old papers which are fascinating! There was a farm and its farm house, which is now a cosy gîte, a wine store house : ''le chai'', a dairy : la ''laiterie'', an orangery with high ceiling, the main house ''le logis'' facing the river, with its tower to watch the Charente river, and the mill with seven wheels. Also fields, woods, and vineyards. At one time, we owned two of the seven mill wheels... The property stretched out to the village probably, at a time when there were no roads, no railways... and transportation of good and and people was done on the Charente river. Today, and since 2005, we are proud and happy to share it with our guests and they all ove their stay here ! Welcome at La Baine Nathalie and her family
What makes this cottage unique
1. Our guests mention a cosy house ! A home-like environment (facilities). 2. The gîte environment is quite special ! 3. The sightseeing program is very rich as the area where the gîte is located has a lot to offer ! 4. Enjoy the river and the sea, which is only about 50 kms away, beautiful long sandy beaches and pine forests ! A countryside rental is less expensive than a seaside rental, plus being inland means less crowds and more calm ! As soon as you enter the property, you get a sense of uniqueness... as the private driveway takes you straight to the river - we have our own access to the Charente river, and this feeling will last throughout your whole stay... wether you relax in the easy chairs in the garden looking at the old stones around you, go for long walks along the river banks - a very special path from the house takes you to the village to buy your croissants or baguette aux graines, or enjoy melon au pineau bought at the local market, along with Bordeaux white wine in the garden, after touring the pedestrian streets of Saintes and La Rochelle or Cognac, or after a day at the long white sand beaches of the Atlantic or a trip to the local islands (' Aix ' - by boat only ! ' Madame ' - by foot or bike only, ' Oléron ' - drive on a beautiful bridge, ' Ré ', the trendiest), very "bobo" ! We hope you will like to do what we like the most on a perfect summer day with bright blue sky : go to the Alassins beach on the Oléron island, enjoy the waves, their sound, the heat; drive back at sunset and jump in the river where it feels so quiet after the Ocean -;) Plus, we have listed the top 10 sites in the area, without too much driving.
