PoolThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

The space

The studio is an ideal place to pursue various artistic endeavors, especially dance, music and fine arts. It is full of light, and faces the swimming pool and Patrick’s garden, which is full of fruit trees, plants, flowers and herbs. The space (and village) is peaceful and quiet, and idyllic for reflective work.

The studio consists of two main rooms, plus a bathroom. At one end of the house, you’ll find a kitchen outfitted with a refrigerator, range, and a sink. There is also a bathroom with toilet, shower and sink. In the front room, there is a loft with a queen-sized bed. (If you need additional space, there is a separate house for rent, which accommodates 2 people.) The front room also has tables and chairs, with sliding glass doors that let in a lot of light, and can be opened to the garden and pool.

The second room is a true studio, sparsely outfitted with blond wood floors, and floor to ceiling mirrors. Thanks to skylights, it is also full of light. The walls are made of a special, acoustically imbued material, to the benefit of dancers and musicians. There is no television, but there is (free) WiFi. Please, no smoking in the house.

Bikes can be lent or free, and are a great way to see Angoulins, and neighboring towns. There is a path that will take you to Chatelaillon (4km), where you’ll find a sandy beach, restaurants, bars, and a casino. In La Rochelle (7km), there are many shops, restaurants and bars. Walk around the old port, along the old stone ramparts, and take in the famous towers that guard the port. In La Rochelle, you can see a movie or a concert, visit the large farmers market, or participate in any number of water sports/boating activities.

Local busses and trains run regularly six days per week. You will be in the very heart of the city in 10 minutes. It is also very easy to visit Île de Ré or Île de Oleron.

The village of Angoulins is a three-minute walk from the house. There you will find: a café/bar, post office, bakery, pharmacy, butcher shop, pizza place and a bank. There is also a farmers market three days a week, which sells fruits and vegetables, as well as local fish and shellfish.

While you are strolling through the village, make sure to stop at the ancient church, or walk to the ocean to take in the view (the ocean is a leisurely 10 minute walk from the house). As our village borders the Atlantic Ocean, you can swim at our local beach, which is small and quiet, far from crowds and noise. Just don't forget to check the tides; the region is famous for its oysters and mussels, and you can only swim when the tide is up!

Patrick and I lived abroad for 12 years: 6 in Tunisia (North Africa) and 6 in Venezuela (South America). We speak English, Spanish, French, as well as a little German, and are very open to welcoming people from all over the world!

Such a beautiful house, and wonderful hosts who made the stay so special. Loved cycling to the beach each day and getting delicious food and wine from the local shops! We didn't want to leave! Couldn't have asked for a better place or nicer hosts

A great little place, just 15 min drive from the bustling centre of La Rochelle. The house is situated in a quiet village with a local bakery and single supermarket. As such, it may be too quiet for some; there's no local bars or anything like that. But if you want to avoid the c…
