Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Set in a peaceful chestnut forest amidst the rivers, vineyards, and rolling fields of western France, Cherry Cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway or retreat from city life. Part of a refurbished 13th century farmhouse, this vacation rental is fully equipped and situated in the small hamlet of Les Bordes. Cherry Cottage is quiet, private, and perfect for two people although it can accommodate up to four. The guesthouse is owned and managed by Marie-Laure Leauthaud who lives in the main house next door. Marie-Laure, who is fluent in both English and Japanese, has taught French to new arrivals in the region for more than ten years. She offers her English-speaking guests the chance to brush up on their French with a private lesson. No matter the occasion, Marie-Laure welcomes visitors to come in and join her for a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Amenities in this beautifully restored farmhouse include a full kitchen with microwave and oven, spacious bath with Jacuzzi, laundry, satellite TV with DVD, wireless Internet, barbecue and private garden. You will enjoy our flowers and gardens, forest walks, bicycling, and exploring nearby historical sites. We are conveniently located for exploring western France. The surrounding region, known as La Vienne, offers outdoor activities (such as horseback riding and bicycling), and is renowned for its local cheeses (such as goat cheese) and historical landmarks. The Châteaux and vineyards of the Loire valley, the Cognac region, the Futuroscope, “la vallée des singes”, and the "Green Venice" of the Marais Poitevin are all within an hour and a half.
