Chez Belliveau

The Pool

If you need to relax, it may prove difficult to tear yourself away from our large (14m x 7m) heated pool with children’s paddling pool alongside. It is heated to 28 degrees from May to October which therefore makes early and late season bookings popular since we ensure you get a warm swim from May to October. The large pool is deep 1.5m – 2.0m so a full swim is possible. The highlight of many children’s holiday is the late night swim by floodlight, supervised, but such fun!

The toddler’s pool is also heated, so whilst mum or dad sit on the side, small children wallow in the first stages of learning to swim. Children under 12 must be supervised, but this ensures no unwelcome misbehaviour.

There is shade and plenty of sunbeds with cushions. You will find ample space to spread out alongside the bright flower beds and exotic plants. The pool area is securely fenced off, so toddlers cannot amble into the area unseen and is for your use anytime during daylight hours.

Games Area

Large and fenced green ground, this space allows a lot of family games : ball, badminton, freesbee and even cricket.

Space for the youngest (less than 12) offers swings, small houses and many toys.

It’s also possible from this space to see sheeps and hens in the close orchard.



Our pool table is situated in the laundry room area and is available at a small charge. It couldn’t be used by young children without an adult.

It is also in the same room than the laundry, adults and children could find here many books in English or in French if you want to improve your french.

Our laundry room is practical and convenient. We make a small charge of 5€ per load to cover the water,which is metered, and electricity. We also provide you with wash powder and fabric conditioner.

Playroom / Reception room

Our covered play area has a tennis pong table, a baby foot and a darts play. It is just next door to the bar so all the family can be amused.

This room can also be transformed into a reception room (except during summer) for big groups or family who want to have a place to eat together.

The bar

A very warm welcome awaits you after your journey to the Charente Maritime in our « fresh » bar or on our covered terrace.

Our bar has its own original alembic as its focal point.

Convivial place like a pub, open every evening except on Saturday during the high season, you could meet us and other families during the nice summer evenings. It is the best place to taste local wines, cognac and pineau or drinking beers.

On Thursday evening during the high season we propose you a « French Dinner » cooked by Isabelle.
