Description

The old farmworkers cottage has been tastefully renovated to provide an open plan kitchen/lounge and dining area on the ground floor. The original stone fireplace features a wood-burning stove. Cosy sofas provide relaxed seating in the lounge, maybe to watch a DVD or listen to some music. A dining table and chairs fit nicely by the window for you to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Alternatively, you can dine al fresco in the garden at the side of the cottage and sample the excellent local food and wine.
The main attraction is the peace and tranquility of the surroundings which enable you to de-stress, relax and re-charge your batteries. SPECIAL DEAL IF YOU BOOK BOTH OUR GITES AT THE SAME TIME - SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR DETAILS.

Further details indoors

* Free WiFi available within Hideaway Cottage and across the site.

Further details outdoors

There is an outdooor sitting area with patio furniture at the side of the cottage (see gallery for photo).
The above-ground pool measures 7.5m x 3.5m and is for fun rather than serious swimming. It has a raised wooden deck around one side to make access easier. Pool towels are provided.
Sun-loungers, tables, chairs and parasols are provided near the pool on a gravelled terraced area. A boules court can also be found in this area. Loads of fun to be had with this traditional French game and "friendly" competitions organised if enough interest is shown. Boules sets available for loan if you don't have your own. Indoor games and outdoor toys available to borrow. A dartboard is also provided for your entertainment.
Laundry facilities available with washing machine and tumble dryer (chargeable) across the courtyard.
A second gite is located a few yards away in the courtyard together with the owners' farmhouse. A small secluded campsite accommodating a maximum of 6 touring carvans, motorhomes or tents is located in the nearby orchard with its own bathroom facilities near the car park. Due to our proximity to the toll freeN10 (7kms), we are ideal for stopovers when travelling to or from the South of France, Spain or Portugal.
All the facilities at La Grande Vigne are available to both gite and camping guests. This is a great way to make new friends, which may last a lifetime!

Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

Due to the microclimate in this region, we are blessed with an exceptional number of sunshine hours per year, making it the second sunniest region in France. Spring comes early, Summer temperatures can reach in excess of 30 degrees and Autumn is still warm enough for a quieter main holiday. This is the perfect choice for a holiday - something for everyone! The white sand and romantic islands of the Atlantic Coast are about an hours' drive; the spectacular "Green Venice" (Marais Poitevin) is only 50 minutes away as is the Futuroscope theme park (near Poitiers) in the other direction. Cognac is only a short drive and has several distilleries offering guided tours. In short, we have wildlife parks, chateaux, hilltop fortress towns and roman history abound. This area is also ideal for bird-watchers since there are many rare species of birds of prey to be found here.

Lezay

You cannot afford to miss the market in Lezay every Tuesday morning, selling everything from local fresh produce to shoes to livestock. The nearest supermarket & petrol station are also located in Lezay, as well as a post office, banks, chemists, doctors, etc. In the town there is also a beautiful park with tennis courts and an open-air swimming pool (open July & August only). Canoeing & swimming available at the lake in Lambon. Melle is famous for its' silver mines and is a very pretty town with several nice places to eat. For history lovers, we have the archaelogical dig and museum at Rom (4kms) as well as the Commonwealth War Graves. In the opposite direction are Chaunay, Couhe, Vivonne and Poitiers all offering shops, markets, restaurants and interesting architecture.
