From each bedroom there are views over the garden and countryside. The salon has french doors that open onto a terrace where you can enjoy your morning coffee or tea and listen to the early birdsong. The salon is a place where you can relax on the comfy sofa and watch some TV or listen to music. There are plenty of books for you to read as well. There is also a DVD player, a music centre and a IPod docking station.

You can easily prepare your fresh produce from the local markets in the well equipped kitchen. There is barbecue in the Mediterranean garden if you prefer to cook outside. Dine under the covered terrace which is also a delightful place to share a glass of wine.

The kitchen has all the usual amenities with cooker, washing machine, fridge/freezer and small table and chairs.

We are on the border of the Loire and the Vienne so plenty of sights to see and enjoy. The Châteaux of the Loire; Villandry, Ussé,Azay le Rideau and many more. The park of the moving image is not far; Futuroscope. It is very peaceful and quiet where you can relax in tranquillity. Go for leisurely walks, wine tasting or you can go horse riding through the forest (stables close by). Visit lovely medieval towns and villages. There are hammocks to laze in, badminton to be played, and books to read. Go cycling, we have bikes you can borrow. Great place for a small family, a romantic week away or a lazy week with friends.

The Poitou-Charentes region

Gentle rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, deers grazing, stunning countryside, summers are warm, night sky filled with stars, no light pollution. This is a quiet part of France where time seems to have stopped still where and you can really relax or enjoy the many attractions this area has to offer.

We are on the border of the Vienne and the Loire, so an ideal base to visit the medieval towns of Chinon and Richelieu and the Châteaux of the Loire. If you like wine we have the vineyards of the Loire and the wines of the Haut Poitou which produces a very different wine.

The capital of the Vienne, Poitiers is 40 minutes away with bars and restaurants,boutiques and is steeped in history. For a day out that you will not forget go to the amazing Futuroscope, European parc of the moving image, which is fun for people of all ages.


L'Olivier is a few minutes walk to the village. It is small, but there is everything you need there if you do not want to travel far.

We have a wonderful baker, hairdresser, chemist, newsagent and a small supermarket. We even have a beautician where you can go and spoil yourself. There is a small recently renovated theatre. The 14th century Château is the Marie and has the tourist office inside. A lively village with concerts in the summer, a night market in July and a 'brocante' flea market in May.

"Beautiful gite set in tranquil grounds, a little slice of heaven!"

We have been to this pretty gite twice now and would highly recommend it! It's set in beautiful private grounds where the peace & tranquillity is second to none; the Boulanger is a 5 minute walk in to the village and the pan au chocolates are to die for! The surrounding area is ideal for visiting all the numerous Chateau's, pretty towns and villages. The gite itself is very well equipped; particularly the kitchen which has every utensil you could think of and the owners are extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the area.

"stylish, peaceful haven"

We loved our stay at this gite. It's beautifully furnished and stylishly decorated. The immediate surroundings are lovely, a section of garden all to yourselves, with bees buzzing around lavender bushes. This was where we had all of our meals. The peace and quiet is very restful, so you're guaranteed a good night's sleep too. Glyn and John are delightful hosts, friendly and fun and they've got plenty of ideas about days out and places to eat. We shall treasure our memories of our stay and hope to return in not too distant future.
