About the Gites

La Ferme, Bois and Verre.
Our three gites all have individual, private courtyard gardens with stone-built barbecues and dining areas. There is a shared area for guests with a small library with books and DVDs, children’s toys, pool inflatables, field games and a laundry area. If you’d like a break from the sun, there’s our games barn with table tennis too.
‘Bois’ (a former wood-store) is our one-bedroomed gite which, along with all our properties, has been tastefully renovated in the Charentaise style with exposed stone walls, oak beams and traditional flooring - it's perfect for couples. It has a modern kitchen with everything you will need and a dining area for four.
‘Verre’ (once a bottle store) is a spacious two-bedroomed gite, comfortably sleeping four people with a main double bedroom and a twin room. There is an open plan well-equipped kitchen and a dining area.
‘La Ferme’ (once a farm house) sleeps six with its three large bedrooms. There is a spacious courtyard, a large lounge with a beautiful open-fireplace and, a fully-equipped dining-kitchen gives you plenty of space.
