Under no circumstances can children be allowed in the pool unsupervised. The pool does have a security cover, electronically controlled but there are not fences around this or the ponds.

Likewise the contact of all animals is t your own risk.

Our ponds are stocked with fish, but, we prefer watching them to fishing them, sorry.

Further details

Welcome pack on arrival.

Shopping provided for on your arrival following your list of requirements - to be paid in full on arrival.

English/French speaking. Full knowledge of local attractions, places to visit.

The owners live on the property along with the animals living on the farm. The reserve the right to use the pool and facilities along with their guests and deny all responsibility for the security and well being of visitors.

All care is taken by the owners and they politely ask that their guests respect their home, the animals and privacy whilst enjoying a happy ,friendly , atmosphere which we hope to provide.

We will also provide a "meet and greet" from Poitiers airport, and the train station at St Maixent L'Ecole. If you require this service from La Rochelle, it will be necessary to charge travel expenses.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

The Farm is 10 minutes inside the Deux Sevres/Vienne border, so for tourism an ideal situation. Easily within reach of Vendee, Charante, Charante Maritime, Main en Loir. West coast beaches, wine regions of Bordeaux all an easy 2hrs drive.

For those in search of history, architect, again, a perfect setting. From pre-historic times, through all the ages of history, you will find evidence practically on the door step.

Many touristic attractions within easy reach, whether it be Disney Land Paris, animal attractions, birds, monkeys, crocodiles, ostiches and more, to classical churches, modern architect, 2nd world war, French country life or gourmand eating, it can all be found in this central location.

Benefitting from a micro climate the weather is generally reliable but can get very hot, so trips to inside attractions such as the Sealife centre at La Rochelle, Futurscope at Poitiers, Forests and lakes are a welcome break.

Local wine producers, cheese producers and being close to La Rochelle, oysters, mussels and sea food make for eating pleasures too.

Full local knowledge, advice on trips and places of interest available from owners - and, if they dont know, then they will ask someone who does!

Les Forges, Deux Sevres

"So relaxing and just the place to unwind."

we stayed here as 2 families, 4 adults and 4 children aged 11 to 15. The bedrooms were lovely and large with really comfortable beds and nice clean sheets and towels. The 15 year old slept in the 2nd lounge as he had his own toilet etc. Our only problem was the size of the kitchen but we tried to use the amazing BBQ by the pool. The farm has dogs cats horses geese ducks etc. Which was lovely for the children. We used the table tennis most nights and all the pool toys - especially in the dark with the pool lights on. Most days we cycled to the bakers about 4 Miles away. Lots of interesting places to visit we really enjoyed. futurescope. Overall I would definitely recommend this gite and can honestly say you can't get better value - especially if you like a pool holiday.
