About Le vieux Monastere

The LVM team welcome you to Le Vieux Monastere!

Since 2003, Le Vieux Monastere has welcomed vacationers from the hand of Graham and Christine Dove, who have provided a memorable experience. But now it’s up to us to offer you a dream vacation in the middle of the French countryside.

When guests arrive at Le Vieux Monastere, they immediately realize that they will have an unforgettable vacation. Surrounded by vineyards and fields, Le Vieux Monastere is a group of seven independent and intimate holiday cottages ideal for a family holiday. LVM is located between La Rochelle, Ile de Ré and Cognac, and very close to the historic towns of Saintes and St Jean d´Angély.

The grounds of LVM are mostly lawned and provide a safe and secure environment for children, allowing parents to relax and enjoy our location and facilities in peace.

Our Cottages

Our accommodations have been designed to combine the comforts of home with the rustic charm of a stay in a traditional French country cottage and they are all well equipped. We have kept attractive elements such as exposed oak beams and stone walls, while finishing the kitchens and bathrooms with contemporary fittings, ensuring cleanliness and hygiene.

The cottages are all located within the enclosed grounds of the monastery, providing a safe and secure environment for children and, due to its exceptional position, they offer wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.
We offer the following facilities which are all included in the price so you won’t find any hidden extras: Kitchens include full oven and hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a microwave oven.
The living areas have comfortable sofas, a dining area, satellite TV, DVD player and iPod docking station. The wifi is accessible in all the cottages.

Each cottage includes a private garden table and barbecue.

    Facilities

    While the Charente Maritime offers many attractions and places of interest to visit, Le Vieux Monastery is a perfect place to soak up the sun and relax. Take a look at what we have to offer: Our 12mx6m heated swimming pool has shallow steps for easy access, a heated shower and a sun terrace with a view of the countryside and it is illuminated at night. There are lounge chairs and patio furniture. The swimming pool is completely closed to prevent access of unaccompanied young people. The pool is heated to 28 degrees from May to October, making it an ideal choice for early and late season vacations.

    Activities on site.

    Our games room, a former dovecote, includes table tennis, table football, children’s toys and books. We also have a DVD library available. The large courtyard in the center of the land is bordered by the gites, creating a pleasant atmosphere. It is a perfect playground for all kinds of outdoor games, including bocce and croquet, volleyball and cricket. There is a swing for the youngest.
