It is about 2 kilometres from the market town of Saint Porchaire which has a wide range of shops, essential services and a weekly market. It is surrounded by open countryside and woodland with plenty of rural paths for walking or riding. The large town of Saintes is around 15 kilometres away. The beaches of the Atlantic coast can be reached in 20 to 30 minutes and you are within an easy drive of La Rochelle with its beautiful harbour, waterside sea food restaurants and international airport as well as the fabulous island of Ile de Re which is a holiday destination for the discerning. Just south of the Ile de Re, is the Ile D'Oleron, the centre of Oyster production on the Atlantic Coast.
