Discover La Rose des Vents, a former 19th century Cognac Domaine - an elegant Manor House and two beautifully restored, luxury 3-bed holiday cottages in 2.5 acres of gated grounds, where you can chill out by the 11 x 5.5 metre heated pool set in the orchard.

The domaine hidden from view, on the edge of a sleepy hamlet, is surrounded by Cognac vineyards and fields of sunflowers in the heart of the peaceful and picturesque Charente Maritime region of South West France. It is just 5 minutes from the busy market town of Matha, 15 minutes from Cognac and within easy reach of the Atlantic beaches, La Rochelle and the chic Il de Re in the Charente Maritime.

Each spacious cottage sleeps 6 (+ cot) has been awarded a 4 star classification by the French Tourist Office, and selected as one of Sawdays Special Places to Stay. Relax in Manor Cottage, a traditional Charentais house, or Rose Cottage the former stables. Both are decorated in a pleasing mix of English and French country style, combined with quality furnishings and linens, with ensuite bedrooms they provide a comfortable and luxurious stay including high speed internet connection.

The cottages have their own private flower filled walled gardens equipped for outdoor dining, assuring total privacy and tranquility, and there is a 11 x 5.5 metre heated swimming pool (for sole use of guests) set within the organic fruit orchard overlooking the vineyards.

The resident owners have owned classic sports cars for over 30 years, and included in your self catering stay is a complimentary tour through the vineyards in a 4 seater Morgan sports car.

Choose from a self-catering cottage holiday or a B & B mini break which includes breakfast delivered to your cottage each morning with tea and cakes on arrival and a welcome 4 course dinner served in the Manor House. Or, why not start your self catering holiday with a reservation for a candle lit dinner to be enjoyed in your cottage, or under the stars in your private walled garden.
