Description from owner


The Gîte is in the middle of a small French village about an hour south of Poitiers and close to the town of Civray. It was built in the early 1800's as a long barn and it has now been converted into a three bedroom single storey gîte.

The area is in the heart of the tranquil countryside and is ideal for a relaxing holiday. There is still plenty to do and is a good centre from which to explore.

Further details

Heating/Air Conditioning

With summers that have reached the upper 30 degrees and winters down to minus 20 degrees, we have given some thought to cooling and heating.

We have installed new technology heat pump air conditioning units, with eco friendly refrigerant which can both cool and heat. They are operated with a simple remote control.

Toddler Friendly

We have available a cot, high chairs, push chairs, car seats, a changing table, steriliser and other items for babies and toddlers. There are also garden toys such as a slide and wendy house and many other similar items.

Wheelchair Friendly

During the renovation process we have made sure that the gîte is fully wheelchair friendly. The main access to the gîte is by ramp into the lounge area. All the rooms are on the ground floor and there are no steps or changes in level.

There is a high level electric socket in most rooms and lots in the kitchen area. The kitchen also has a low level, wheelchair accessible sink with a view over the garden.

All the bathrooms are wet rooms with no shower trays. The basins are wall mounted and allow wheelchair access. There are grab rails by the showers and toilets. A wheelchair and an electric scooter are available, as are a walking frame, toilet frame, raised toilet seat etc.

Further details indoors

The lounge/dining room is at the rear of the gîte looking out over the garden. The large double glazed windows on two sides of the room, give plenty of natural light. There is a chestnut floor and large wooden beams. English TV, DVD player and a selection of DVD's, books and games are included. Free wifi is available.

The fully equipped kitchen area is to one side of the lounge. There are two sinks, a cooker, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. There is a washing machine in the small utility room to the rear of the kitchen. There is plenty of cupboard space and a wine rack!

There is a large double bedroom and two medium sized twin bedrooms, all with en-suite 'wet room' bathrooms. Each en-suite has a mixer shower with thermostat, a toilet, basin and heated towel rail. The larger en-suite also has a bath with thermostat taps and hand held shower.

Further details outdoors

The Garden
The owners old farm house together with the gîte are on a one hectare (about 2.5 acres) site.

The gîte has its own garden with seats, tables, and barbeque. The swimming pool with sunbeds and chairs is in the main garden area where there is also a large grass area for ball games. There is an outdoor table tennis table and bicycles are also available

Close at hand are the village tennis and boule/petanque courts and this area also has a picnic table and a small, children's play area.

The Pool
The swimming pool can be found just past the end of the gîte garden. It is only shared with the owners. It is approximately 5 by 10 meters and has roman steps one end and a sloping bottom. The depth ranges from 1 to 2 meters.

The pool meets the very strict French safety standards and has a safety cover and pool alarm. It is not at present heated, but has a thermal cover and the temperature mid summer reaches 30 degrees.

The water is kept pure with bromine, which is much kinder to the skin than chlorine.
