About the property

2 /3 bed converted single storey barn surrounded by our 130 acre organic farm

Classic family Gite holidays in the surroundings of our beautiful farm in the Vienne (Dept 86). Come and spend a relaxing week or two in our rustic Gites (Holiday cottages).

Come and have a great family holiday with loads of outings and things to do before returning at the end of the day to our tranquil farm. See below for our best picks.

La Jouachere, is situated away from neighbours, surrounded by our own low intensivity organic (Bio) farmland enjoying views over the spectacular Vienne valley. We pride ourselves on providing as natural a habitat as possible for birds and wildlife - as well as guests and sheep. We are a small scale working farm (non stinky), following sustainable practices and would be happy to share some experiences with our guests – adult or children alike. Ducks, chickens, geese and horses need feeding as do the flocks of sheep.

La Jouachere is situated just outside Queaux ( overlooking the Vienne river valley in the Department of La Vienne (86).

Our two rustic style Gites converted from a stone and timber built 1790’s barn feature fitted modern kitchens with fridge freezers, dishwashers and microwaves, and modern clean bathrooms. There is access to a communal washing machine by request.

This lovely converted barn Gite offers two bedrooms, one with two single beds and one with a double bed (Four people). An additional child's bed is offered in an annex to the double bedroom.

We’ve tried to think of most eventualities by providing everything from well equipped kitchens, free to air British television channels and comfy beds and sofa’s, as well as plenty of tranquil outside spaces to get away from it all. If there’s anything missing just ask us as we will be on hand to advise and help make sure your holiday is an enjoyable one.

About The Owner

La Jouachere is home to our young family and three years ago we returned here to start our Organic sheep farming business and open the Gites.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

Why The Owner chose Queaux

La Jouachere enjoys spectacular views over the Vienne valley and occupies a quiet position where you are unlikely to be disturbed by any neighbours during your stay.

Ideal location to base yourselves so you can go and enjoy loads of great activities and return at the end of the day to relax in beautiful natural surroundings.

We are very happy to share "farm experiences" with young or old alike. Whether it be feeding geese, ducks and chickens, or taking water out to the sheep.

We have established the heart of the farm as a nature reserve with the LPO (Ligue Protection Oiseax - a bit like the RSPB).
