Villa Tana?s
Ile D'Aix
Atlantic Coast
?946 per week, 4*, sleeps 14

Villa Tana?s is a unique and quirky holiday cottage situated in the heart of the Charente archipelago, on the magnificent small island of Aix. (3km long, 0.7km wide) Population186.
Built on one level and facing due south, this property is located on a private wooded plot of 1000m2 and 200m from the sea.  The whole life of the house is based around the spacious veranda, the terrace and its outside kitchen.
The island of Aix boasts a landscape that is as diverse as it is varied with several beaches and alcoves forests and woodland copses as well as the large Fort Li?dot which functioned as a military prison from the early 19th century to the 1960s. The Algerian independentist and future president Ben Bella was imprisoned there from 1956 to 1962.  Something to warn unruly children about! 
There is only one way to get here, boat!  Don?t worry though, because when you leave your car in Fouras (they are prohibited on the island) and take the ferry, you?ll also be leaving the stress and noise of everyday life behind and should be ready and willing to take full advantage of this little piece of French paradise for your reunion.

Check the Belvilla site and put in the code.
