Luxury Gites in France



The Gites

Both the gites are very large, cool and airy - 'more like a house than a gite'.

They have modern facilities but have been carefully renovated to keep
the French style and feel. The gardens and grounds of the chateau extend to 25 acres,
with hundreds of magnificent trees, shrubs and flowering plants, and support an amazing variety of birds and wildlife.
There are excellent facilities for many sports and interests - the lake is well stocked
with coarse fish, including some great carp and is very lightly fished.

Bicycles are available to hire.
Children can have adventures all day long -
playing badminton, boule, table tennis, or croquet on the lawn,
tennis on our hard tennis court.
Younger ones can enjoy the play area!

We ask guests not to smoke in the gites, nor do we allow pets.

The Gatehouse stands close to the lake abounding with fish and wildlife, with a boat moored at the waters edge to take you on a gentle row to the folly.
It has three double bedrooms (two ensuite), a twin bedroom, and a separate large bathroom. The kitchen is all electric with microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The salon has glazed doors leading out to the lawn and terrace, with satellite UK TV and   DVD/CD player.
A 6.4m diameter octagonal swimming pool is alongside the terrace for your private enjoyment.

La Petite Maison looks out over the 8m diameter swimming pool set in a lawn with trees that are centuries old, to the hills and beyond.
It has three large double bedrooms and a large twin bedroom, each with antique wash basin and bidet. There are two bathrooms, one with a large bath. The fully fitted kitchen with microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer adjoins a separate dining room.
The kitchen has French windows leading out to a private lawn, as does the salon with satellite UK TV, DVD, and CD stereo system.


Each gite has a barbecue area , with table and chairs for eating and relaxing.

There are many seating areas around the grounds and sun loungers alongside the pool. You can always find an idyllic spot in sun or shade to spend a lazy afternoon.

For the more energetic there is a riding school nearby, tennis courts and canoeing on the Vienne. There is a lovely uncrowded golf course 20 minutes away at St Junien.
