Cottages and gîtes with pools in Poitou Charentes offer a wonderful array of variety and a wealth of beauty. This ensures that the region is a perennially popular holiday destination for holidaymakers looking for a host of activities to enjoy in the day and somewhere quiet to relax in afterwards.

The town of Cognac boasts a delightful riverside setting on the River Charente, but it’s undoubtedly better known for producing the spirit of the same name.

A cottage or gîte with a pool in the Angoulême region of France provides the perfect opportunity for you to get your bearings and admire the majesty of your surroundings (you may even be lucky enough to get a pool with a view!). Known as the ‘balcony of the southwest’ for its location atop a plateau, the town offers beautiful river views and lovely floral displays in high-season.

However, with a host of stunning cottages with swimming pools in the region, you’d be forgiven for spending your break sunning yourself on the terrace before plunging into cool blue waters and soaking up your stunning surrounds.
