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.

Further details indoors

There are 2 very large bedrooms, each with double and single bed plus furniture. There is room for another single bed/cot if required. Each room has ensuite facilities, one with a shower, the other a bath with a shower over.
All linen and towels are provided.
Sitting room, dining room, galley kitchen. Fully equipped.
Each room has PVC Double glazing and doors to the exterior. Terraces and seating areas outside each room. Private entrance with wc. Covered area.

Further details outdoors

All terraces, gardens, covered outdoor space, bar-b-que to the rear of the property are strictly private for guests use.
The large heated pool, sun terrace, pool house (with pool toys, fridg/freezer, crockery etc) are available at all times, though maybe shared with the owners and the owners guests. There is a bar-b-que and dining table, chairs, recliners available for use.
The spa is on the terrae and also available for use, but it is advisable not to be used in the heat of the sun, for those with medical conditions, or for children.
The owners would like to point out that whilst they want you to enjoy the full facilities of living on the farm, being
close to the animals, sitting around the ponds, pool and land, they take no responsibility whatsoever for accident or injury caused on their property and, at all times children MUST have a responsible adult with them. 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.
Lots of space for parking, playing and running around. Private, no near neighbours, no passing traffic. Secure, fenced.

Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine 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

In the village of Vasles, the local tourist attraction is Mouton Village. A large collection of rare breed sheep, goats and their produce. There is a craft shop with beautiful examples of spinning, clothes, beauty products etc all made from their "farm".

Fishing in local rivers, Pescalis for lake fishing, trout/carp in local lakes.

“Lovely holiday in the countryside”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2016

Fantastic place to stay if you want peace and quiet away from city life. Owners Christine and Phil are a delight, helpful and very welcoming into their home. Son loved the animals and enjoyed helping Phil to feed them. Purchased a pair of wellies so he could just go out and enjoy himself! He also enjoyed playing table tennis. Gite is cosy with everything you could think of. Welcoming pack was above and beyond. Bedrooms were fab and the beds were very comfortable. Didn't get chance to walk around the mouton village. ..... But maybe next time. Really enjoyed our stay here. Thank you.

“So relaxing and just the place to unwind.”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2013

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.
