We spent 12 nights in one of the 2 bed cottages at Domaine de Rochebonne and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is certainly 'rustic' but suited us perfectly and had everything we needed for our holiday. The staff were all extremely helpful and welcoming and...More

I was so surprised to read the awful review just left by an obviously very grumpy person. We could not be talking of the same place? Rochebonne is welcoming with lots of little (free!) extras, it is friendly, very french although the owners are English,...More

About the neighbourhood
There is an excellent zoo at La Palmyre, also a good golf course. The island of Oleron is just a few minutes' drive with cycle tracks and all water sports. La Rochelle is probably the most famous town in this area, along with Fort Boyard where the TV games are held. The Roman town of Saintes is well worth a visit (stunning amphitheatre among other things) and the old military town of Rochefort with its famous fortifications is nearby. Royan is a relatively new town, having been blitzed during World War II, but nonetheless boasts miles of sandy beach and lots of restaurants. Visit the markets, chateaux, picturesque rivers, taste the local wines and eat at a wealth of seafood restaurants. Sporting opportunities are also abundant with cycling, golf, diving and other water sports. Swimm... more
