House Garden Roses, in the heart of POITIERS

Oasis of tranquillity in beautiful city.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this garden retreat. It is well furnished and comfortable. It's so close to the city centre and shopping. Cathy was welcoming and helpful as well as being unobtrusive. It was easy to unload our car and we just left in in the nearby economical car park for days as we enjoyed the pedestrianised city centre, its shops and restaurants. Poitiers is steeped in history, especially in its church buildings.

Delightful and charming home in the centre of poitiers

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days in the gite and were very well taken care of by Cathy, who greeted us warmly and made sure we had everything we needed for our family's stay. The house was clean and beautifully appointed and in a great location.

A great position. Handy to the city centre by foot.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very comfortable house with all the amenities one wants. Catherine was very helpful.

The recommended restaurants in Trip Advisor should be avoided. They are relying on their reputation. Not 3 minutes away in the same street Is 16. We recommend it. Also Aux 40 Gourmand only 2 minutes away. The white bait and moules were greatl

Wonderful Gite, Delightful Owners

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Gite Jardin des Roses for 7 weeks this fall, loved every minute of it. Cathy has thought of every convenience and comfort from the luxurious bed linens to the well equipped kitchen to the entertainment equipment. The location of the gite could not be better--just a short walk from the beautiful heart of old Poitiers and the open markets in one direction, and to the l Parc de Blossac in the other direction. All the major tourist attractions in town are a walkable distance from the Gite, including the TAP performing arts center. Although the gite is located in the heart of the city, it's setting, off the street and behind the main house, in a private garden was very quiet and peaceful. The icing on the cake was Cathy. She is such a warm and welcoming hostess, and went the extra mile to make our visit the best ever, from loaning us a market basket and umbrellas to bring over brioche and jams. She is the neighbor everyone wishes they had!! I tried using my ancient school-girl French, but thank heaven Cathy is very proficient in English. We have stayed in vacation rentals all over the world, and the Gite Jardin des Roses is by far and away the very best we have ever experienced.

Incredible Cottage...Lovely Hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the graciousness and warmth of the Ouvrards. Their cottage was extremely clean, bright, and inviting and I wish I could have stayed for a month! I would highly recommend this cottage for the above reasons as well as the fabulous location. I adored the town of Poitiers and the hosts. I will return one day to continue the French lessons!

Au Paradis des Roses

  • 5 of 5

Venus à Poitiers pour visiter les églises romanes, les musées et les quartiers anciens, nous étions heureux de trouver à deux pas du gîte tout ce que nous cherchions. Les informations et les conseils de Cathy nous ont facilité l'orientation dans cette ville et dans les environs. Quant au calme, à la propreté de la maison, aux merveilles du jardin - tout était parfait.
