6 Sunshine

The Charente Maritime is blessed with a micro climate that means we get approximately the same number of hours of sunshine as the Cote D’Azure, We can’t guarantee the sunshine of course ! But the chances are that you will be able to relax in the sunshine during your week here,

7, Good Food

Two course lunches and four course evening meals, included in the price, All of the food is home cooked using products from the garden whenever possible, The meals are in a mediteranean style with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and whatever fish looks good in the market that week, We pride ourselves in making the menu as interesting as possible and change the whole menu each year so that people coming back the next year can have a treat !

8.French Wine

You will be in France so there has to plenty of wine !! We serve a local rosé at lunchtime, a white with the starter in the evening and then copious amounts of red !!

9, Great Surroundings

Creative Vacances is based in a little hamlet surrounded by sunflowers and vines, Our house is in over 3 acres of grounds so there is plenty of space and not many neighbours to complain about the noise coming from the music room, People arrive stressed from the hassle of England but quickly un wind, You can relax in the garden, or if the water is warm enough have a swim in our 10×5 metre swimming pool,


And if all that isn’t enough we have a micro brewery 5 minutes walk away – Brasserie de Bercloux, Unsuprisingly this is very popular with all the groups who usually pop up there at least once after an afternoon session, They speak English and have a very interesting array of beers and love to meet our musicians who always enthuisiastically drink as much as they can !!!
