Le Puit (2 Bedroom, Sleeps 2/4)
We moved here in September 2016 from a very busy part of Kent where we had lived for some 35 years working and bringing up our two sons. We love the wide open spaces, historic medieval cities, chateaux and gardens of this area, all of which are within an easy drive from Le Petite Coindries. We also enjoy the peace and quiet and wildlife the area has to offer, not to mention the many restaurants and vineyards.

Absolutely fantastic place, great location & hosts
Les Coindries Gites is an absolutely fantastic place. We have stayed for the last 2 years and are booked to go again this year. This gites are very well maintained and every gite has a personal touch. They are very clean, well organised and beautiful. Robert and Claire are great hosts, they are so friendly and helpful and are very knowledgeable about the local area and places of interest to visit. The courtyard is great and there are patios with tables and chairs with very gite. There is also a Barbecue in the courtyard to use. The swimming pool is really nice and very welcome in the hot summer months . I would rate Les Coindries as 10/10 and would highly recommend to friends and family.
Nearest seaside resort is La Rochelle about 2 hours away. The beaches on Ile de Re are beautiful and it is a well-sought-after resort for the French in summer.
Poitiers airport is 45 mins away with Tours airport being about an hour. Eurostar and TGV to Poitiers. Limoges and Nantes are 2 hours. Use of a car is recommended in this area.
The nearest village is 10 minutes walk (3 mins by car) with a boulangerie, epicerie and bar/restaurant. Richelieu is 10 mins by car and the charming town of Chinon is a leisurely 30 minutes drive through rolling hills and vineyards. The famous Fontevraud Abbey and Futuroscope are 30km away, and many wonderful chateaux are within a radius of 15 km.
Richelieu our local town, is a wonderful example of an unspoilt and largely original medieval walled city of great charm and character. The main square recently redeveloped and restored to its original 15th century style, features cafes, bars and shops. Banks and restaurants are down the little streets which lead to hidden properties straight from the days of the Cardinal who founded his domain and built the city in the early 1600’s.
The whole area is a haven and an antidote from the stresses of modern life, with few cars and many little roads to explore it is a cyclists and walkers paradise. There are many beautiful types of woodland with defined paths and easy access and a few minutes away is a splendid nature trail build on the former railway which ran from Chatellerault to Loudon.
