Graham and Christine Dove would like to extend a warm welcome to their home at Le Vieux Monastère (the Old Monastery). “When we discovered Le Vieux Monastère in its spectacular location we knew at once that it was ideal for creating a perfect holiday environment.” We have been welcoming guests here since 2003, many of whom have become good friends over the years, and we look forward to the same in 2021 to experience an unforgettable holiday.

We know you will be delighted as you are shown to your cottage which has been designed to combine the luxuries of home with the charm and character of this historic location. All cottages are equipped to an exceptional standard and have a private patio area or terrace with barbecue and garden furniture. See more on our cottages page.

You will feel at home as soon as you arrive, and while you are enjoying a well deserved drink the children will be off to the swimming pool or games room and making new friends.

The grounds at Le Vieux Monastère are mainly laid to lawn and provide a particularly safe and secure environment for children, allowing parents the freedom to relax and enjoy our tranquil location and facilities. Facilities include a heated swimming pool, large sun terrace, children's play area and games room. The pool is heated to 28 degrees from May to October making us an ideal choice for early and late season holidays.  Find out more on our facilities page. You can also view our aerial panoramic tour.

We never forget how important our own holidays are to us so we take our responsibility of ensuring that your holiday meets your expectations very seriously. That is why over half our guests in 2020 were returning guests or had been recommended to us and we are determined to continue with this success. Don't take our word for it - all the entries in our Guest Book are genuine entries from families who took their holidays here recently.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information. We hope to welcome you on holiday to Le Vieux Monastère soon.

We are always delighted to see this excitement shared by our guests when they arrive at Le Vieux Monastère as they realise immediately that they are about to have a holiday to remember. Surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields we have created an intimate group of seven exceptional self-catering holiday cottages which are ideally located between La Rochelle, Ile de Re and Cognac and are conveniently situated for the facilities of the historical towns of Saintes and St Jean d’Angely.

The facilities and sociable atmosphere of Le Vieux Monastère are popular with adults and children alike who all appreciate the opportunity to relax and unwind in this perfect location. But be sure to leave time to explore and experience the numerous attractions and places of interest to be found in the Charente Maritime which make it such a popular tourist destination.
