Surrounded by beautiful French countryside, Le Clos des Jardins offers two exquisitely restored holiday cottages, set in the extensive grounds of a typically French, 18th century Charentaise farmhouse. Each cottage, bursting with rural charm, has its own private lawned garden and everything on hand to ensure an utterly relaxing stay.

Situated in the peaceful hamlet of Mandegault, just 100 km inland from La Rochelle and enjoying a blissful climate likened to that of the Mediterranean, a shared above ground swimming pool has been carefully chosen to integrate harmoniously into the natural environment.

A haven of peace and tranquility, our guests can enjoy the simple pleasures of rural France and pick organically produced fruit and vegetables, collect free range eggs and enjoy a meal at our ‘table d’hôtes’.

Set amidst fields of sunflowers in the Summer and chestnut coppice, the tiny, friendly village of Mandegault with its honey coloured stone walls and and canal tile roofs seems to sleep and shimmer in the heat of the day. Many of our visitors are struck by the tranquillity of life here, ‘the rural charm of England 50 years ago’!

Our gites are featured in Alastair Sawday’s guide, ‘Special Places to Stay’ and ‘Green Europe’.
