Le Maine Patrat, an enchanting place for your holidays

In the heart of South Charente, in a hilly and unspoiled countryside, come and relax in our two renovated cottages combining elements of original architecture and a modern and contemporary decor for your comfort and serenity.

Well-being and relaxation await you.

The heated swimming pool is open from the beginning of May to the end of the summer (end of September). Le Maine Patrat also hosts a Wellness area with sauna, hammam and Duo Spa.

The 4 hectares park will enchant you with its hilly landscape, the pond with its fountains, the collections of trees, perfumed rosebushes, aromatic plants, the orchard, the citrus greenhouse, the kitchen garden… and a rich fauna easy to observe (butterflies, amphibians, birds, roe deer…). All your senses will be awake.

Maine Patrat living throughout the seasons


Spring time is when nature is so beautiful, awakening from winter. Enjoy the swiming pool or relax in the wellness center. Roses are blossomong with so many different fragrances. Let yourself be seduced !

We will share with you the richness of our nature according to the harvests, the fruits of the orchard, the vegetables and the aromatic plants.


Fall is a transition from summer’s energy to winter’s blank coat. Take a walk to admire the beautiful colors of the trees, before a  cocooning time in the sauna or the hammam. Enjoy the Norwegian woodstove and it’s flames just before supper.

During the autumn and winter, take a long week-end break, allow yourself to rest, relax and enjoy the changing colors of the landscape.


Our advice in any season, come to the Maine Patrat to do what you don’t have time to do in your everyday life :

– Read a good book

– Watch a movie (there are 5 cinemas within 30 minutes including one arthouse films)

– Discover a gourmet restaurant

– Fill up your cellar with organic and natural wines

– Immerse yourself in the sauna, jacuzzi and hammam

– enjoy an Ayurvedic massage in your cottage

– Enjoy a half-day painting session with Anne (professional painter)

Just change your rhythm.
