Special Rental Conditions

You may arrive (after 16h) any day of the week and leave (before 10h) any day.

The minimum stay, in a gîte, is 3 nights except during the Peak season (4th July 2020 - 28th August 2020) during which the minimum stay is 7 nights.

When booking direct with us a 30% non-refundable deposit is payable when the booking is made. We would advise you to take travel insurance which will allow you to recover this sum in the event of cancellation. The balance is due 8 weeks prior to your arrival. Reservations within 8 weeks of the arrival date requires full payment at the time of booking.

We are required to collect a taxe de séjour (Occupancy Tax) from each adult staying. Details will be provided at the time of booking.

A damages deposit of 250€ will be required prior to your arrival. This is intended to cover minor damage to the property and / or its contents. Following any adjustments for damages the deposit will be returned to you, by electronic transfer, within a maximum of 2 weeks following your departure. The deposit shall not limit the Client’s liability to the Owner.

We expect the gîte to be left in the same condition as it was when you arrived. If it is not then we will deduct 100€ from the deposit to enable us to arrange cleaners at short notice. However, if you prefer, we can arrange for the gîte to be cleaned after you have departed. In this case you must advise us at least 2 weeks ahead of your arrival so that we may arrange a cleaner. We will advise you of the cost of the cleaning prior to the commencement of your holiday and this will be payable to the Owner upon your arrival.

The occupancy numbers quoted are the maximum except for babies sleeping in travel cots.

High chair, stair gate, bed guard, baby bath, potty, travel cot (no linen), night light, plastic bowls & cutlery may be borrowed, if available, free of charge. Please advise us, when booking, if these are required otherwise we cannot guarantee their availability.

The Client should treat the property and its contents with respect, as if were his own. Nothing should be fixed or attached to the walls, ceilings or floors.

The client should attempt to save energy where possible. For instance the client should try to use the laundry during the off peak hours which are between 23:30h and 07:30h each day.

We regret that we are not able to accept any pets staying in our gîtes or on site.

There is a strict no smoking policy (including e-cigarettes) both within the gîtes and grounds.

Local Attractions

From your base in Saint Seurin de Palenne you can visit the ancient cognac houses in the town of Cognac (20 minutes to the north east) or simply take a walk along the banks of the Charente. Alternatively you could visit the Roman town of Saintes (20 minutes to the north west) with its amazing Roman remains, including the amphitheatre. Or you could head south to Jonzac, also only 25 minutes away to the south, with its Caribbean themed water park, ‘Les Antilles’.

The beautiful west coast is only 35 - 40 minutes away with the wide, safe, sandy beaches of the Gironde Estuary or, for the more adventurous, a few kilometres further north, the wide sandy beaches of the Côte Sauvage (Atlantic coast) where body boarding, kite surfing, wind surfing are all possible.

The amazing city of Bordeaux is approximately an hour to the south. The city itself has been renovated over recent years and has a plethora of wonderful buildings, cafés and restaurants. The former docks, along the banks of the Garonne, have also been renovated providing a beautiful promenade with more shopping and eating opportunities! Alternatively there are always the famous vineyards of AOC Bordeaux where you can spend a happy day or more touring and tasting the famous wines.

Generally, in the immediate area there are many attractions for young and old. There is the Château des Énigmes within 10 mins drive from us. This is not only a small theme park with pirates and treasure to be found but also an historic Château. Other, more traditional Châteaux within 35 mins are the Châteaux of Crazannes and La Roche Courbon. There is the Paleosite (dinosaurs) just north of Saintes and a live archaeological dig in a quarry where a large collection of dinosaurs are being unearthed (very restricted opening). In Rochefort there is L'Hermione, a replica frigate from 1780s that you can tour as well as the historic building of the Arsenal - I could go on but I do not have enough space!!

An hour to the north is La Rochelle. The beautiful Vieux Port, with its wide selection of cafés & restaurants, the medieval cobbled streets and arcades and the Aquarium are all exceptional and well worth a visit.

At Les Gîtes du Vigneron et Chambre d'hôte we can also offer you a few little extras. For instance:

Dégustation: We can arrange an intimate dégustation of cognac and Pineau des Charentes (cognac based aperitif) at a local, family run, vineyard. Or, alternatively or indeed as well, a visit to a family run vineyard in Blaye to taste their wines.

French & English lessons: We are able to offer French or English lessons at our language school – Papillon école de langue. Vanessa taught French to A level / Pre-U for over 30 years in the UK, at a leading public school. Her modern classroom is a converted stable to the rear of our house. The cost would be between 20€ - 25€ depending upon your level and the amount of preparation required.

Tennis: We have arranged a “holiday membership” of the tennis club in the neighbouring village, Pérignac. The cost would be 10€ for the week, no matter how many times you play. So, if you are interested, don’t forget to pack your racquets & tennis balls.

Art courses: While you are here you may like to take art lessons with a local artist, Annie-France Notari. who has a studio in the neighbouring village of Colombiers. Annie-France offers 2 hour lessons for beginners up to experienced artists in various mediums including pencil, dry pastels, gouache, acrylics, wax, water colours and Chinese ink. The cost per 2 hour lesson would be 40€.

Bike hire: We can also arrange for you to hire bikes of all sizes to suit everyone from 3 months to 100 years old through Bike Hire Direct! They also offer 'Tag-a-Long' children’s bikes, tandem bikes, rear mounted child seats, children’s chariots, pull along cargo trolleys, baskets, panniers and car bike racks. The bikes would be delivered to and collected from your gîte and we have safe storage on site. Alternatively, you may prefer to contact Bike Hire Direct and arrange the hire yourself using the following link / website: www.bikehiredirect.com. If you do can you please let them know that we gave you the recommendation, thank you.
Their minimum hire period is 2 days.
