Charming dog friendly bed and breakfast near Saintes and Cognac

ID: 566
This beautifully stylish dog friendly B&B near Saintes is just the ticket for a stopover en route to your holiday in the SW of France (junction 34 of the A10 autoroute is just a couple of kilometers away).

But stay longer and explore the beautiful Poitou Charentes region of France and the beaches of the West Coast which is a short 40 minute drive away. The gently flowing Boutonne river flows through the Medieval market town of Saint Jean d'Angely and it is on its banks, within walking distance of restaurants and shops, that you will find this bed and breakfast.

The characterful old house with its exposed stone walls, beautiful old exposed beams and old fireplaces was built in 1633 and has been delightfully decorated and furnished in understated style by its new British owners.

The first floor salon with its calming view towards the river is the perfect spot for breakfast - homemade conserves, bread, pastries, cereals, fresh fruit, homemade compote and yogurts are served alongside fresh orange juice and a choice of fresh coffee, a selection of teas or hot chocolate. You won't go on your way hungry, that's for sure!

It's the considerate little touches that make this B&B stand out. From the quality Egyptian cotton bed linen to the fluffy towels, complementary refreshment tray (cafetiere with fresh coffee, fresh milk, a selection of teas), hairdryers and clock radios, you'd think you were staying in a 3 star hotel!

For relaxation during the evening, you will have exclusive use of the large salon on the first floor. With its comfortable sofas, open fire and chandelier it is the perfect spot to browse through the books provided, select a game or jigsaw from the games basket or watch TV (French and UK channels).

Guests also have their own kitchenette to prepare simple meals and use of a fridge freezer (especially useful for refreezing freezer blocks for picnics the following day).

This is a dog friendly B&B although you must let us know at the time of enquiring if you will be bringing your pooch with you. There is free WiFi throughout the house and parking is usually available on the quiet road in front of the B&B although in high season there is also further parking over the bridge.

Just a note to say how we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Clare at her beautiful b&b in Saint Jean D'Angely. The accommodation met all expectations and Clare is a very welcoming host. She has thought of all the little touches that make your stay with her very comfortable and the place is truly beautiful with all the charming furnishings, and a fantastic view of the river. The location could not be better and Clare booked a lovely restaurant for us which made our stay all the more special. I would highly recommend this to any of my family and friends. - the Dixons
