Bed linen, t towels and bath towels are provided - please bring your own swimming towels, but can be provided should you forget for a minimal charge to cover laundering. Smoking is permitted outside but not inside the gites. Pets (dogs well behaved) are welcome by prior arrangement - there is a resident dog. Further information to be found on the owners' website. We expect that the gites are left clean and tidy as you would wish to find them but should you wish to make an early getaway we can clean for 50euros per gite.

The Vallee des Singes (valley of the monkeys) is just 15 minutes away and Futeroscope just a 40 minutes drive.

The Poitou-Charentes region

The Poitou-Charentes is reputed to be the second sunniest region of France after the Cote d'Azur. The local people are very welcoming, especially if you try out your French. Poitiers has a lovely old centre, lots of restaurants and shops. Angouleme has it's ancient ramparts to explore and Cognac has it's distilleries to tour and compare brandies. La Rochelle on the coast has a wonderful old port with many fish restaurants, and the walled centre with little alleyways and many shops must be visited. The aquarium at La Rochelle is one of the best we have seen. The RN10 runs down the border with Deux Sevres and on to the border with Charente, so you can visit three departements in one day! Limoges porcelain is renowned throughout Europe.


There are so many things to do and see in the area that a folder is provided in each gite with information for everyone. As an example, La Vallee des Singes is nearby, Futuroscope at Poitiers - a must see, l'Ile aux Serpents, Zoodyssee, the war memorial village at Oradour-sur-Glane, Velorail at Roumazieres and Confolens, and so much more.

"Lovely setting for a relaxing holiday"

As a family of 4 was very happy with the spacious and clean accommodation. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The setting of the gite was in the countryside with lots of land where the children could play safely.
