From the owner

If you are looking for a "get away from it all" stress free break then you won't be disappointed! Come and enjoy the calm in our beautiful "uber chic" gite attached to our own home. Les Hortensias gite has everything you could need for short break or lengthy stay. It has been said by previous guests that our prices are particularly under priced for the accommodation and services offered, but we pride ourselves on offering an affordable solution for a well deserved getaway from the stresses of modern living. Come and try us out and see for yourselves.

We are situated in Vasles, a village on the edge of the Deux sevres and Vienne region of the Poitou Charentes. The village has a bakers, butchers, small convenience store and the local tradional French bar tabac brasserie which offers lovely food at reasonable prices. Throughout the year Le Zinc have theme weekends of food such as moules, tartiflette and fish and chips to name but a few and in the summer there are music concerts (classical and pop) in the village and surrounding areas.

There is also a small market in Vasles each Tuesday morning.

The area is predominantly farming countryside with lots of walks and safe roads for cycling.

Susan is a registered Reiki practitioner so if you feel the need for some relaxation therapy come and give it a try.
