The large, heated swimming pool is surrounded by a secluded grassed area for sunbathing. The pool area is fenced for child safety and contains sun loungers, seating and al fresco dining areas with a second BBQ. The pool will be open from May - September each year, weather permitting. To the side of the pool is a children's play area complete with Wendy house and swing and slide set to keep the younger ones entertained while you relax by the pool.
The property can be hired as a whole for large groups or families, or each gite can be hired individually. With exclusive rental of both gites, La Charronnière can sleep 16 people comfortably. Each gite is fully equipped with all you could want for a self catering holiday and both benefit from free WiFi connection and smart TVs with Netflix, and English and French TV channels.
We love animals and, if you have booked exclusive rental of the whole property only, then we are happy to welcome well behaved dogs, by prior agreement.
