The rooms are equipped with beds with firm mattresses excellent for the back, quality linen, toiletries and a welcome tray with kettle, tea, coffee, milk, water and biscuits. Breakfast is included in the price and is served either on the terrace overlooking the house or in the breakfast roomCharente, which is also available throughout the day. Our house and garden are strictly non-smoking. If you are travelling by bicycle we have a shed where your bicycles will be safe and secure.

Princesse, our border cross dog is very sweet (and bilingual!). She is absolutely not allowed in the rooms! Her job? To look adorable at all times!
Due to her presence and the extra time needed to clean the rooms since the beginning of the pandemic, we cannot accept animals in our establishment.
We are located just under 20 mns from the Bordeaux-Poitiers/Nantes motorway (A10), so we are an ideal place to stop for the night if you are on a long North-South / South-North journey. Take exit 34 at Saint-Jean-d'Angely if you are coming from the North, and exit 35 at Saintes if you are coming from the South. In both cases, you'll have a quarter of an hour to get to us. You can easily park in the street near the house.
Our address is 49, Quai des Fleurs, 17350 Saint Savinien, but on some GPS it appears under its cadastral address: 49, Quai Claude Quessot. Don't worry, it's the same thing!
Our art and jewellery shop, where everything is made on the spot by ourselves, is open 5 afternoons a week in July and August and at weekends the rest of the year. We offer three non-smoking guest rooms, each with en-suite bathroom: the perfect place to disconnect (but we do offer wi-fi!).
We welcome you in a warm and arty spirit. As far as possible, all the produce served for breakfast are local, even organic: fresh fruit, yoghurt, pastries and bread from the baker, local or Breton specialities, or, why not, English, for those who wish! Feel free to let us know what you would like, but also your allergies or food restrictions. Our goal: that you feel good here and want to come back! Breakfast is served, depending on the weather, on the terrace on the edge of the Charente, on the patio at the back of the house, or in the breakfast room on the ground floor. This room and the garden by the river are also at your disposal all day long. You can prepare a hot drink, read or work.
Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or reservations.
