Holiday Rental House
Viki and Richard welcome you to their farmhouse gite in Arces, close to Royan in South West France. Here you will enjoy the peace of the countryside while being only 10 minutes from the nearest beaches. We have recently completed the renovation of our lovely 18th century farm complex to create both a home for us and a spacious and comfortable gite. The original farmhouse, a Charentaise demi-longère has become the gite with 4 en suite double/twin bedrooms sleeping up to 8, living room, kitchen and private gardens. We have created our own living space alongside in the barns and farm buildings. When the gite is not in use we offer the two downstairs bedroom suites as Chambre d'Hôtes or bed and breakfast....Viki and Richard welcome you to their farmhouse gite in Arces, close to Royan in South West France.
