La Tannerie consists of the Maison de Maître and five gites, all contained within an acre of tree-lined gardens, hidden away down a private drive in the centre of the small market town of Chalais. There is accommodation for up to 30 persons.

It is the unique location of La Tannerie that makes it such an attractive business proposition. The concept of a gite complex in the centre of a small town was not something the current owners had ever considered until they first saw La Tannerie.

The current owners have developed La Tannerie into a successful, year-round business. We have a high percentage of repeat bookings from holidaymakers, and have been the starting point for many house hunters who have purchased in this region.

Who are we?
We are originally from Colchester but live here at La Tannerie all year round. We took the decision to 'give it a go' and gave up our jobs as a languages teacher and in the NHS in 2004.
More than fourteen years later we are still enjoying the combination of the French lifestyle and a job that brings us into contact with a huge variety of clients, but are ready now to down-size and ease ourselves into retirement!
