La Charronnière


3 small but perfectly formed Gites set around a pretty courtyard on 5 acres of land with many fruit trees, a herb garden (in the courtyard and guests may help themselves) and a large heated swimming pool.  Our guests can enjoy the BBQ, games hangar with table tennis, pool table and equipment for indoor and outdoor games, a slide and swing set for the little ones and your own picnic tables and chairs with parasols outside each property to enjoy Al Fresco dining. *NEW for summer 2015 a 6 hole CRAZY GOLF COURSE.  To the rear of the property is a large area for football or maybe badminton and all the gites have access to the pool room which houses a washing machine, iron and ironing board.  The pool area has a lovely grassed sunbathing area with sunbeds 3 per gite and more picnic tables and seating.  Parasols and a gazebo are provided for those who prefer the shade.

The Ecuries have 2 bedrooms (1 x Double and 1 x Twin) upstairs, whilst downstairs there are 2 double sofa beds, and sleep up to 6. La Petite Boulangerie is the perfect romantic hideaway for honeymooners.  It has a large double bedroom which can also accomodate a travel cot and or a z-bed suitable for a child, and downstairs there is a further double sofa bed.  Each Gite is fully equipped with all you could need for the perfect self-catering holiday and we even provide free Wi Fi internet connection and Freesat English TV channels.  Please see full details in the individual descriptions for each Gite.  There is plenty of parking and the property lends itself well to big groups who want to holiday together, but also want their own space.  Large groups have the added advantage of discounts for booking the whole property.

Should you wish we can babysit for you (2 days notice required) for a small fee.  Kim has a current paediatric first aider certificate and has been fully background checked in the UK.

We will also by prior arrangement (again for a small charge) provide lifts to and from local bars and restaurants.

Pets are accepted as long as they are well behaved and trustworthy although they are not allowed in the pool area nor, upstairs or on furniture in gites, and should be kept under control so they do not bother other guests.

Smoking is not allowed in any of the gites but you may smoke outside using the ashtrays provided.

We can even arrange airport pickups (50 euros return) from Poitiers and we can take you to a local store Super U who hire cars at a much more reasonable price than at the airport.

‘It is the perfect place for a family – lots of space for children to run around, and peace of mind that they are completely safe.’
