Les Hiboux

Les Hiboux, France. Sleeps 4/6. Private Pool.

Situated on the edge of a small, picturesque hamlet in the heart of the French countryside, our stone-built cottage with 9x4m pool is ideally located for walking, cycling or relaxing in peaceful surroundings, yet within easy reach of Sauze-Vaussais with its market, shops, swimming pool, tennis, etc.

Our village was chosen to celebrate the "Journees du Patrimoine" (French Heritage) because of the large number of historical features retained in the properties here.

The Charente region is famous for its high blue skies and long sunny summers, wide sandy beaches, Romanesque churches, traditional markets, seafood delicacies, goat cheese and of course good wine and Pineau.

Local restaurants offer a wide selection of regional dishes and a good variety of wines can be tasted and purchased in the area. For those who want something stronger why not visit the distilleries at Jarnac and Cognac?

The Atlantic coast and islands of Oleron and Re have many sandy beaches and a wealth of historic sights at La Rochelle, Fouras, Royan, etc.  Visitors to this coastline can also take advantage of the seafood for which it is famous.

Other places of interest include Futuroscope theme park, The Marais Poitevin (Green Venice), the silver mines at Melle, and several chateaux.  There are nature reserves, leisure parks with lakes for fishing and swimming nearby and the beautiful rivers Charente and Vienne are within easy reach.
