Welcome to our beautiful gites in the sunny Charente area in South-West of France. The Charente is famous for its semi-Mediterranean climate - it’s the second sunniest region in the whole of France!
La Grue is a small hamlet set amongst rolling fields of stunning sunflowers and vines in the gorgeous French countryside – perfect for cycling and walking. We’re only 4kms from the picturesque market town of Aigre with its supermarket, restaurants, cafes, shops, Cognac producer, tourist office and open-air markets on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays selling a range of local produce. Aigre also hosts an English market on the first Saturday of each month from April to October.
La Grue is only a five-minute drive from the village of Verdille with its most amazing boulangerie for your fresh French bread, croissants and patisserie. If you would like to wake to breakfast on your private patio, just ask!
Whether you wish to relax and unwind in your own courtyard garden or on the spacious patio beside our large 12m by 6m pool with your favourite novel, then you’ve chosen the right place!
For lovers of Cognac, we have Gautier Cognac right on our doorstep in Aigre. It is one of the oldest Cognac houses and it is situated on the Osme river. If you have children, they will love nothing more than splashing around in the pool with our range of inflatables and sinkers or playing around in the garden area with our fun games and equipment.
You can pack less with our selection of baby equipment available for you to use. Just let us know and we’ll have it ready for you.
