Having ourselves rented gites in France for a number of years, we feel our gite is a bit different from the average - we hope that after looking at the pictures (follow the links above) you'll see what we mean !

The gite has been primarily designed to provide spacious (95 m2) holiday accommodation for 2 people. However, it can easily accommodate up to 4 people if you want to bring some friends with you !

Renovated in 2002 and updated every year since, the gite consists of :

On ground floor :

up to :

On 1st floor, in the converted grenier/loft, 2 large bedrooms (each approx 6mx3m / 18ftx9ft into the eaves - although with some low beams) :

and outside :

Whilst the gite is attached to Chris and Martin's house, it is completely self contained and the terrace is divided to provide privacy. Your privacy is assured : in the words of previous guests : "Chris and Martin ... manage that delicate task (so easily !) of being unobtrusive & yet so friendly. We shall return ..."

The gite is well equipped with heating for the cooler months, with a Godin log burner in the living room and wall mounted electric radiators and convector heaters in all other rooms - including modern "chaleur douce" radiators for gentle and controllable background warmth

We're ashamed to say that some of the internal doors, even on the ground floor, are too narrow for wheelchairs to get through. Otherwise, the ground floor facilities are quite accessible for people with mobility difficulties and we can provide a sofa-bed in the living room for people who cannot manage the stairs due to disability (subject to request at time of booking & availability).

For people with hearing disabilities, sub-titles can be provided on the TV (dependent on specific programmes) upon request, and many DVDs in the library have sub-titles available.

* We have installed a wireless pool perimeter alarm that conforms with French legislation regarding pool safety (AFNOR standard NF P 30-307) - but all guests are given a code to disable the alarm whenever they wish to use the pool !!

** Wi-fi coverage is subject to availability : e.g. equipment/network failure outside the owners' control and network is turned off during storms

“A wonderful haven that exceeded all our expectations !!"
