Farmhouse | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Le Chai is part of our recently restored 200-year-old farmhouse at the edge of a sleepy village, and retains much of its original character. Traditional in style, you will love the feel of the exposed beams and light and airy rooms. It is perfect for a long summer holiday, or a mid-week or weekend break, especially from May to October, when you can enjoy the delights of our heated swimming pool, even on cooler days. It's ideal for a relaxing break, or as a base to discover the surrounding area.
Le Chai has one bedroom upstairs with a double bed and plenty room for a cot, and an en-suite shower room, with the comfortable living/dining/kitchen area downstairs. It was designed with couples in mind, although it can easily accommodate a young family with a baby.
As well as the the dining area inside, outside the gîte there is a delightful screened & fenced terrace in the sunniest corner of our sheltered courtyard, with a stone barbeque. This area looks out south with open views of the local countryside, where you can relax in the sun or cool a little under the canopy and watch the birds which flock over the local farmers' fields. It has a closable gate which separates it from the rest of the courtyard and keeps it private. It's the only one of our gîtes to have an seating area at the front which therefore makes it the most peaceful, and it's ideal for our glorious Charentais summer evenings.
Further details indoors :
We pride ourselves that our gîtes are well-equipped - lots of people who stay with us love to cook and enjoy the local food, and we make sure that the kitchen is set up in a way that helps this be a pleasure not a chore.
All bed- and household- linen and towels are provided, as well as a hairdryer, UK plug adapters, bedroom fans, full length mirror, DVD player & UK freeview TV, iron & ironing board, alarm clock, a laundry ball which replaces detergent in most washes and cool box & cooling blocks for picnics.
Further details outdoors :
An important part of your gîte holiday is relaxation & fun, and our 600 square-metre pool area contains our octagonal 10 x 5 metre pool, heated to around 30 degrees from April to the end of October, and plenty of sun loungers, tables, and chairs, so that you can relax any way you like. The pool is in full sun for much of the day so you'll also find pleasant shady areas to keep cool. The view from the pool area is across our garden to the surrounding farmland, and rolling hills, without another house in sight.
