Come and stay in our charming large farmhouse, which has been painstakingly and sympathetically restored over recent years without losing any of it's character.

The farmhouse offers spacious accommodation for large or extended families, groups of friends or just like minded people ( artist, photographers or cyclist )

With 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms/shower rooms ( one of which is on the ground floor ) making it ideal for the older guest,with separate dining room, living room and large well equipped kitchen.

All rooms have exposed wooden beams and mellow yellow stone walls which lends itself to a warm and welcoming Gite.

All this is set in a partly stone walled garden with private pool, gas bar-b-que and eating area looking out across the fields with sun loungers finishing off the picture. A must for anyone looking for a relaxing friendly holiday.

Located in a quite picturesque setting but only 8 mins from a town for all your daily requirements.

GROUND FLOOR

The ground floor has a very large kitchen with separate dinning room,large lounge,bedroom,shower room and a vaulted sitting area.All the walls are mellow yellow stone which makes the house nice and cool in the summer months. The well equipped kitchen and dinning room both have large stone fireplaces one with a free standing wood burning fire. The first basket of logs supplied, extra logs at cost. May to Sept rates do not include central heating. The kitchen is fitted with hand crafted solid wood units. There are lots of little nooks and crannies that give the house lots of charm. The vaulted sitting area is one of my favourite places to sit.

The ground floor bedroom has two single beds with enough space that another single could be added if you need that extra bed.

Both the kitchen and lounge doors open onto your own garden which will have a gas bar-b-que and dinning area,the above ground swimming pool and sun lounge area. With views looking past the owners house onto the fields beyond.

The Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region

We are situated in the Deux Sevres, part of the Poitou Charente. The climate in this beautiful region of south west France ensures reasonably mild winters and hot summer days.

Mainly laid to crops the area is bursting with wild life a must for photographers and painters alike.

Quite lanes and woodland to take great relaxing walks keeping an eye out for deer,hares and partridge.

10 mins drive from the N10 means an easy place to explore the region with three cities within easy reach and the beaches not too far away.Or just visit one of two lakes (nearby) which are great for swimming,picnics and bar-b-que's.

Sauze Vaussais

Poitiers (35mins) A university town. Great shopping and sightseeing.

Futuroscope (45 mins) France's answer to the Epcot Centre and Europe's premier image theme park.

Niort (40 mins) This lovely town offers excellent shopping made more enjoyable by pedestrian streets.

Cognac (60 mins) best known for the production of brandy. In Cognac visit the famed Cognac Museum and the houses of Hennessy, Martell, Remy Martin and Otard. Go to Jarnac to visit Courvoisier.

Angouleme (30 mins) with many fine 17th and 18th century streets and houses to wander. Walk around the ramparts of the city and see some spectacular views. Visit the wonderful morning market (open every day but Sundays are best) or taste chocolate at Chocolaterie Letuffe.

La Rochelle (90 mins) A lively and vibrant port with plenty of shops to wander around, the wonderful harbour to explore and plenty of bars and restaurants serving excellent seafood.

Limoges (90 mins ) A wonderful historic place to enjoy. Visit the porcelain factories and the many stunning churches and cathedrals.

Confolens (30 mins ) A beautiful medieval town that sits on the Vienne river. Explore the town by foot and prospect for gold and garnet. Stunning views can be seen at near by Saint-Germain-de-Confolens.

Oradour-sur-Glane- (90 mins) Visit the fascinating World War II martyr village of Oradour-sur-Glane.

Vallee des Singes – (25 mins) Valley of the monkeys is well worth a visit. Stroll through the park and perhaps meet a monkey or two!

"A lovely relaxing holiday with loads of space for the kids"

My wife and I stayed with 3 kids for a week in August 2012 and really loved it here. Sue and Andy made us feel really welcome but left us alone to enjoy the space, the pool, the barbecue and the ambience. The kids absolutely loved it - they thought that we were staying in a castle and wanted to be in the pool and have barbecues every day so that's what we did! The house was spotless and had everything we needed - would thoroughly recommend it!

"Totally Exceeded Our Expectations!"

I speak on behalf of our family party of 8 who were fortunate enough to spend a blissful week in this stunning, spacious house & setting. Our hosts were superb. They were friendly, helpful but let us get on with enjoying our stay to the max! We ventured to the Puy du Fou, Vallee des Singes & Confolens but to be honest we could have spent the whole time based at the farmhouse with never a dull moment. Eating al fresco, playing sports, swimming, chilling. An ideal spot for walking, cycling too. It would be perfect for children of all ages with extra beds & a beautiful cot available. Plenty of rooms to allow holiday-makers of all ages time & space on their own if needed. A fabulous place to come back to and we were all sad to leave. Would recommend to anyone. Only one regret.........needed another 2 weeks! Thanks to Sue & family for being such stars!
