Picture your perfect French gîte holiday...

Wooden beams and wood burning stoves… cosy bedrooms, iron bedsteads and fresh linen… lazy lengths in the heated pool… neighbouring village, with boulangerie and bistro… or dine al fresco beneath the twinkling stars and fairy lights…

La Blatière has it all… and more.

Just over an hour’s drive from La Rochelle, Nantes and Poitiers airports, with your choice of The Stables (for 4) or The Farmhouse (for 6), La Blatière makes a beautiful setting for your French adventure.

Set in half an acre of land with fruit trees, plants and lawns and surrounded by winding lanes and farmland, we offer two newly redecorated stylish self-catering gîtes – complete with a covered and all year round heated swimming pool with inflatables, free wifi, books, DVD's,bikes, fitness room, indoor and outdoor games, terraces, outdoor dining area, BBQ's and gardens and an outdoor infrared sauna. Our little part of south-western France also boasts 2400 hours of sunshine a year making it the perfect all-year-round place to enjoy the peace and tranquility of country living but still be close to all that Poitou-Charantes has to offer.

This perfect, easy-to-reach location means there are so many wonderful things to do on your doorstep or slightly further afield. A leisurely stroll will take you into the local village for a coffee or to pick up a baguette or 10 mins along the road try Go Karting or the Parc Aventure with the kids, fishing at Pescalis or Moncoutant with its restaurants and market. Then just a little further away you can explore the beautiful cites of Niort, Poitiers and La Rochelle, go golfing at Bressuire enjoy the excitement of Futurescope, step back in time at Puy du Fou. Why not visit the wolves at the Zoodyssee or enjoy a relaxing day boating along the canals of France’s own Green Venice and there is so much more too… you will be spoilt for choice!

And we have introduced a series of rigorous cleaning and sanitising measures based on scientific, industry and tourist board guidance to enable you to have the best stay possible while reducing the risk of your exposure to Covid 19.

We can’t wait to welcome you to La Blatière – and with over 68 ten star reviews from guests who have stayed with us it truly is your little piece of French heaven…
