Le Petit Château
Le Petit Château is a 7 bedroom property situated just outside the village of Courpignac in the Charente-Maritime countryside. Montendre, about 9km away, is a very well equipped village hosting a multitude of shops, supermarkets and bars, and also a 9 hole golf course. There is a boulangerie in the village of Courpignac, about 400 metres from the property. It's set in 3 hectares of wonderful lawned gardens with its own tennis court.

Try a day trip to Saint-Émilion (45 minutes), a beautiful old and charming village, well known for its wine or Cognac (45 minutes,) an old city where you can visit the distilleries and caves of this famous brandy. Perhaps you'd like to visit the sand dunes at Arcachon (2 hours) or the beautiful coastal city of La Rochelle (1 hour 15 minutes). In the city of Jonzac (15 minutes) you can find thermal baths and a huge waterpark paradise for children and adults with big swimming pool, hammam, sauna, gym etc... and even a casino. The nearest big beach on the Atlantic ocean is Royan (50 minutes) and various beaches are located alongside the Gironde estuary (40 minutes) along with the lovely quaint coastal village of Talmont.

At the end of each rental we ask our clients for comments on their stay - we hope that the following comments will help making your choice of property easier

  • This was a lovely house for a large group. The main rooms had a real wow factor and were elegant and comfortable. A tastefully furnished, well equipped house in a beautiful setting. The pool is large and recently refined. The kitchen in the barn by the pool is very well equipped and makes for great barbecues. We hope to return one day and would warmly recommend Le Petit Chateau. (August 2018)
  • The house was amazing, there was so much space even for all the things we had brought for our baby! It really felt like a home from home. (July 2017)
  • : The property was perfect for a family get together. The house is beautiful with high ceilings, wooden floors and a wonderful garden. In addition to the house there is a beautiful pool area with an additional outside kitchen. The location is great only an hour from the beach and minutes away from a number of wine farms. I would recommend this property to any large family wanting to spend quality time together. It’s worth mentioning that the care taker was extremely helpful and friendly. (June 2017)
  • Excellent, above expectations. we loved staying here, we liked the rustic feel, the pool was great and there was plenty of room for the 3 families to live in (July 2015)
  • Great chateau for a large party of family or friends - large rooms, good facilities, tennis courts & pool well maintained & handy having BBQ and kitchen with Fridge & dishwasher at the pool for evening entertainment. (August 2014)
  • Loved the house. Wanted to stay the whole summer! Really appreciated the complimentary bottle of Pineau Charente waiting for us on our arrival - many thanks! (July 2014)
  • The website reflected the property well. It understated the size of the house and property which made it a real pleasant surprise, there was no wide angle photography making the place look larger than it was we commend the honesty of this. The tennis court was a real highlight and well maintained. (20 June 2014)
  • Thank you for providing a wonderful home for us to rent. We felt we were invited to stay in a friends house not than a rented house. We loved staying there and felt very much at home. (20 June 2014)
  • This was a lovely place. We had the best time. We drove to places which took approx 40min coast and Bordeaux. Other days we stayed local tried wine and sat by pool eating drinking and playing tennis. (09/08/2012)
  • Extraordinarily large property. We kept getting lost at first! Gorgeous pool and grounds. The very kind friendly caretaker offered support but we didn't need it. (13/08/2013)
  • We had a great time and loved the property. The caretaker was very pleasant and helpful. The pool was excellent. WiFi and TV great. (September 2012)
