Set in an acre of land, the gites have far reaching views over sunflower and poppy fields and look out onto the peaceful, grassed courtyard where our majestic cherry tree stands, providing stunning blossom in early Spring, an abundance of cherries in May and cooling shade in the height of summer.

Across the courtyard is a large barn and traditional French bread oven for guests to explore and enjoy. In the garden beyond the courtyard you can find our stunning new HEATED 10m x 5m swimming pool. The landscaped pool area is furnished with plenty of sun loungers and shaded tables for enjoying lazy days and convivial evenings.

All of the gites have been refurbished to provide high quality, comfortable and well equipped living accommodation, combining all the modern conveniences with character features of the properties. Exposed stone walls, oak beams, 18th century fireplaces, plus a host of other original features, lend character and charm to the properties.

The generously equipped kitchens have plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses, utensils and cookware as well as cookers, dishwashers, microwaves, kettles and toasters. In each gite, the interior decor is tasteful, clean and elegant.

The Poitou-Charentes region

We are situated of the edge of the Vienne midway between the historic towns of Poitiers to the North and Angouleme to the South. The climate in this beautiful region of south west France ensures reasonably mild winters and warm summer days.

Fascinating local villages with markets, churches, fine bars and restaurants as well as an extensive range of local facilities and amenities are all within a short drive.

The medieval towns of Civray, Chef Boutonne and Melle all have excellent markets, restaurants and festivals during the summer months.

Four of the best golf courses in the region can be found close to Poitiers and they attract golfers of national and international reputation.


Poitiers (35mins) A university town with many archaeological sites, is great for shopping and sightseeing.

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

Niort (40 mins) is right in the valley of the river Sevre at the gateway to the Poitou marshes. The river with its wooded banks winds through the city which stands on twin hills and has a magnificent 12th century castle. This lovely town offers excellent shopping made more enjoyable by pedestrian streets.

Confelons (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-Confelons.

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.

Cognac (60 mins) with its ancient streets is the jewel of the Charente and 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.

La Rochelle (90 mins) A lively and vibrant port with rich historical heritage, wonderful museums and plenty of shops to wander around. There is also the wonderful harbour to explore and plenty of bars and restaurants serving excellent seafood. You can visit one of the most original maritime museums in the world and children will enjoy the Port des Minimes to see the sharks, jellyfish, giant squid and turtles in the aquarium. There are also lots of clean beaches nearby and boats out to the “Islands of Tranquility” (Re, Aix and Oleron).

Chatelaillon Plage (90 mins) This family-friendly town features 2.5 kilometres of sandy beach, backed by a pedestrianised walkway and a wide choice of restaurants and shops.

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