Indoors & Outdoors

Indoors

This lovingly restored five-bedroom traditional Charentaise maison de maitre is decorated in cool, fresh colours complemented by beautiful furniture and fittings.

  • Huge open plan living room, dining area and fully-equipped kitchen
  • Laundry room and walk-in pantry
  • Small office area 
  • Ground floor double bedroom 
  • Family bathroom
  • Upstairs there are four further bedrooms – two doubles (one with en-suite bathroom and one with en-suite shower room) and two bunk bedrooms
  • One of the bunkbeds can be separated in to a twin, this room also has an en-suite shower room

Parent Points:

  • Owing to the traditional style of the house the windows in the upstairs double rooms are very low. There are shutters which can be fully, or semi closed, and it suggested that parents close them if the windows are open
  • There is a short distance over a window on the staircase where there is no balustrade. Child safety gates are fitted at the top and bottom but parents should not let little ones use the stairs unsupervised

Outdoors

The fully-enclosed gardens surrounding the house are well-maintained and a haven for children and adults alike.

Immediately outside the house is the main outdoor dining area with barbecue. There is an enclosed grassy area with a charming wooden play house and trampoline with safety net enclosure, following on to a climbing frame with swings and slide.

The rest of this wonderful garden offers beautiful areas to explore, with lots of trees and shrubs and a secluded area perfect for a secret picnic.

The enclosed heated pool, that guests have exclusive use of, is perfect for both serious swimmers and those who just want to splash around and has a large shallow end with gentle steps into the water.  There is a handy poolside shower room with a loo.

Beside the pool area is a games room with a pool table, table football, bikes and a selection of garden games. Next door is an open barn with table tennis.

Parent Point:

  • Children should be supervised in the games room as there is access to the road from this building

What's Around?

The Charente Maritime is famous for its micro climate of long hot summers and mild winters, a must in any successful wine producing area.

The local tipple Pineau des Charentes is a delicious drink made from the first pressing of the grapes and cognac - a cold glassful slips down a treat on a balmy evening.

Set in beautiful countryside, Maison La Lievre is surrounded by vineyards and woodland with plenty of lovely walks direct from the house and pretty villages to discover.

Cognac

If you fancy a bit more hustle and bustle, the famous town of Cognac is about 45 minutes' drive from Maison La Lievre.

Cognac has been making the grape-based spirit for more than 300 years and by the river you'll discover ancient warehouses that still store barrels of the drink, blackened by the alcohol evaporating.

A cruise on a replica gabarre, the traditional flat-bottomed oak boat that once transported cognac, salt and other produce, is a great way to see the town from the river and takes about two hours.

Back on dry land, step back in time to find out more about the town's history, by following the signposted walking routes.

Of course one of the most popular tourist attractions is a tour of one - or more - of the many cognac producers to find out about the drink's history, how it is made and sample a tasting.

Les Antilles de Jonzac

Close to Cognac is the fun-packed Les Antilles de Jonzac indoor water park which, as well as being one of the largest in Europe, has attractions for youngsters and adults alike.

Little ones can make a splash in the main lagoon with beaches, palm trees, a tropical glasshouse, slides and water toboggan ride. And for more serious swimmers there's a 25m sports pool with games and events organised for children and teenagers.

Grown-ups can enjoy Turkish and Roman baths, a sauna, jacuzzis, solarium, fully-equipped fitness area, and a variety of beauty and spa treatments.

Zoo de la Palmyre

Less than an hour from Maison La Lievre, Zoo de la Palmyre in Les Mathes, is one of the most visited tourist attraction in the Charente Maritime and a great day out for the whole family.  

A breeding zoo, with an emphasis on conservation, extends over 44 acres including 14 of landscaped gardens. There are more than 1,600 animals living in environments as close as possible to their natural habitat and, from April until the end of October, also stages sea lion and bird shows.

Beaches

The popular resorts of Meschers and St George are just 40 minutes by car and offer some of the most beautiful and child-friendly beaches on this part of the coast.

Situated within the Gironde Estuary, they offer safe sandy beaches with calm, clear water, perfect for paddling, picnics and spending the day building sand castles. Most have lifeguards during the summer season.

Meschers comprises several beaches, with Nonnes offering children's clubs, sailing, watersports and other activities.
