Saint-Jean-d'Angély is a commune in the Charente-Maritime department in the Poitou-Charente region of southwestern France. The Boutonne flows northwestward through the commune and the town is positioned on its right bank.

When you rent a holiday home in St Jean d'Angely – you’ll immediately be charmed by an attractive old town with cobbled streets and medieval buildings. The unfinished, twin towers of the Abbey Royale make a striking landmark when approaching the town from the north.

The town takes its name from the historical origins of the Abbey of Saint-Jean-d'Angély. Founded in the ninth century to house a relic of Saint John the Baptist, and rebuilt in the 14th, 17th and 18th centuries because of repeated destruction, then later abandoned, the Abbey is now a listed building. It remains the most remarkable piece of architecture to visit in Saint-Jean-d'Angély, for it is a town which has kept all its medieval charm.

When you stay in a Saint-Jean-d'Angély rental villa, you’ll be on the world-famous pilgrim route that leads to Santiago de Compostela. Since 1989, the Royal Abbey has also housed the Centre of European Culture, which has breathed new life into the Abbey by restoring it as a historical and cultural site and as a place for the exchange of ideas.

Saint-Jean D'Angely is home to a vibrant and bustling town centre, with a twice-weekly market (on Saturdays and Wednesdays). Also present is a swimming and fitness centre, Atlantys, which resides on the edge of the town.

The stunning spa town is within easy reach of the towns of Saintes and Cognac. Chize Zoo is about 10 mins away. There is a large park with children’s play area the aquatic centre is just by the park worth going to.

To reach your Saint-Jean D'Angely holiday rental property by car then take the A10 Paris / Poitiers. Via Train (TGV) to Paris is 2h20, the nearest station which serves is Saint-Jean D'Angely Angouleme. The nearest airport is at Angouleme which offers a Ryanair service to London Stansted, slightly further away is Bordeaux Merignac airport which offers a full range low cost, charter and scheduled flights too airports all over the UK.
