Enjoy your stay in Poitiers for a memorable experience in a simple and warm setting of the 50s. This semi-detached house of more than 120m2 covered (including 35m2 of basement) includes the ground floor, 1 floor, 1 basement and 1 garage. It has been totally renovated in a charming 3 *** urban gite in 2015 with "old-fashioned" parquet on more than 80% of the surface.
This place steeped in local history will be told you upon your arrival. The hosts will share with you the history of this district which the abbot "Pierre Brossollette" was at the origin.
This cottage is just minutes from the historic city center. All the gardens of the neighboring houses converge in the middle of this district which creates a very particular atmosphere. The cottage is well in an island of greenery more than 2 HA, not overlooked, exactly as in the countryside. Formerly cultivated for the needs of the inhabitants, the 500m2 of the eco-responsible garden of the cottage are now left "natural". No harmful products being used you will see throughout the year following the seasons of butterflies, turtledoves, pollinators and squirrels come to greet you from time to time in the morning.
This "favorite" is "Refuge LPO" since the end of 2014 so do not be surprised if the song of birds accompanies you every morning under the old arbor of ivy.
4 free car parks are possible including 2 locations in the property (1 in the garage + 1 in front of the house).
To stay as much as possible with natural products, this house, identical to the other 15 of the stalemate is made up of 90% polished floors as before, which are quite slippery: attention to the elderly and children. "Be at home ... put on your slippers". The floors are polished as in 1950 and can also stain if a material or a liquid is not immediately wiped (dining room and / or bathroom outlet) at the risk of sanding and reloading. The murals and those of the frames are eco-labeled, with water. They therefore have no varnish, no protection and are free of VOCs ... and as they used to be quite remarkable.
The calculation of the stay is offered "to the person" (equivalent to 3 in low season or 4/5 in high season & holidays) and up to 8/9 with extra bed.
This house, owned by Patricia, Véronique and Didier, has been labeled with 3 Clévacances keys since late November 2015, Tourism and Handicap (mental and auditory) since March 2016, Ecolabel Européen Tourisme since April 2016 and Qualité Vienne since July 1st, 2016. She was also awarded with the trophy "Top Tourism Vienna 2016 T & H" by La Nouvelle République on November 07, 2016.
