Arbre de Cerise
About the home
Set in an acre of land, the gites have far reaching views over sunflower and poppy fields and look out onto the peaceful, grassed courtyard where our majestic cherry tree stands, providing stunning blossom in early Spring, an abundance of cherries in May and cooling shade in the height of summer.
Across the courtyard is a large barn and traditional French bread oven for guests to explore and enjoy. In the garden beyond the courtyard you can find our stunning new HEATED 10m x 5m swimming pool. The landscaped pool area is furnished with plenty of sun loungers and shaded tables for enjoying lazy days and convivial evenings.
All of the gites have been refurbished to provide high quality, comfortable and well equipped living accommodation, combining all the modern conveniences with character features of the properties. Exposed stone walls, oak beams, 18th century fireplaces, plus a host of other original features, lend character and charm to the properties.
The generously equipped kitchens have plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses, utensils and cookware as well as cookers, dishwashers, microwaves, kettles and toasters. In each gite, the interior decor is tasteful, clean and elegant.
