Before making our beautiful house available as a holiday base, it was our perfect home for more than seven years.

We deliberately set out to make it as open and light and bright as possible in order to get maximum advantage from the delightful village and open countryside in which it is set.

Now we want you to enjoy what we have created - such as the spacious modern kitchen and the dining area with its traditional farmhouse table, ancient butcher's block and what must surely be one of the world's larger pine dressers.

From there you walk straight into a spacious lounge to either just sit and recover after a hard day's relaxing by the pool or watch some of your favourite UK television channels.

We didn't neglect the light and bright theme in the upstairs rooms either, each one having high sloping ceilings to show off the wealth of old oak beams and trusses. And that includes both bathrooms.

The layout of the garden makes it easy to drive in and out and park in the open barn which also houses the ping-pong table. The pool is partially concealed behind a line of tall variegated grasses, the baby football is in another covered area, and the pool table shares an outside room with the chest freezer.

In our early days of visiting France we often stayed in gîtes ourselves and found that some were not always as good as they should have been. So now it's our turn to offer as high a standard of comfort and consideration as possible to ensure your stay here will be a memorable and worthwhile experience.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Sunny South-West of France:

The Poitou-Charentes region is well known for its 'micro-climate' which makes it second only to Provence in terms of high temperatures and sunshine hours.

It also has more than its fair share of tourist attractions as diverse as Cognac and its vineyards, châteaux that can rival those of the Loire valley, and La Rochelle, one of France's most beautiful and lively coastal resorts.


Closer to home - approximately three kilometres - is the small market town of Chef-Boutonne complete with two supermarkets, two bars, one bar/restaurant, one pizza restaurant, a fishing lake and leisure area and what has to be one of the smallest but most delightful châteaux in the whole of France!

"Fabulous Relaxing Family Holiday"

My family & I had a wonderful holiday in sunny Loize, staying in this beautiful spacious property, set within its own private grounds.
The location is quiet & perfect for relaxing with family & friends. For the more active, the house is located in a quiet rural village where cycling and walking are ideally suited.
My husband and I, holidayed with our 8 year old twins and my husband's 18 year old son. The children were never out of the pool and for those staying with older children / teenagers there is a table tennis and pool table.
The house is beautiful and spacious and offered everything one could want in a family residence. Outside is a BBQ area and large table which we made great use of on the hot sunny evenings.
A short drive into the small town of Chef-Boutonne there is located 2 supermarkets, a Pizzaria, a hotel restaurant and a few small bars. The location of the house ideal for exploring. We travelled to the picnic / river area at Ruffec, approx. 30 minutes drive away, where we had a picnic by the river and the children played safely in the shallow waters.
We were welcomed on arrival by the owner Peter and he kept in touch during our stay, returning to cut the grass and service the pool. The house is beautifully maintained and we would love to return in the future. All in all a fabulous family holiday.
