Maison La Roche is a cosy cute two bedroom one Bathroom stone cottage. Perfect for couples, families or small groups.
The Gite is situated in a quiet picturesque area close to the River Vienne and a short walk into L'isle Jourdain also not far (5km)from Le Vigeant and the International Racing Circuit Val du Vienne.
The cottage has a cute kitchen/cuisine with gas cooker, dishwasher, microwave, woodburner(small charge for wood) and coffee machine/cafetiere etc with an extendable dining table and chairs. Although the cottage is self-catering we do provide some basic kitchen amenities such as oil, cooking spices, tea and coffee, etc to get you started.
Next to the kitchen is a comfortable living room/salon with a large LCD TV with UK Satelite TV and French local TV channels. Free wifi is available throughout the cottage.
Bedroom 1 is downstairs with a Kingsize bed.
The shower room is downstairs with luxury towels and some toiletries provided.
Bedroom 2 upstairs is a generous sized family bedroom with a King size bed and 200cm long single daybed. All beds have quality sheets and bedding provided.
There is an iron and ironing board available. There are also hairdryers provided.
Just outside the kitchen there is a small patio area which is perfect for enjoying meals and relaxing.
Just across the quiet residents lane from the patio there is a fully fenced enclosed orchard with a private plunge Pool, view towards the river Vienne and the Barrage La Roche, a large Picnic table and umbrella and sun loungers to relax on. This is also a wonderful spot for star gazing and BBQ's.
Charcoal BBQ is available for use in the orchard.
We are dog friendly at Maison La Roche and welcome up to two small to medium, well behaved and friendly dogs as we have a dog next door also. Dogs are not to be left on their own in the cottage. We may be able to assist with dog sitting for short periods during your stay although dogs are welcome most places around here 😁.
Your hosts Jo and Jamshid stay in the neighbouring property and will be on hand to meet and greet and assist you throughout your stay whilst at the same time respecting your privacy.
Maison La Roche is a non-smoking property inside however smoking is permitted outside, ashtrays provided.
During the summer there are many free events on in the surrounding area, it is not unusual to have free open air music concerts on a Saturday evening and of course there are the many Vide Greniers and Brocantes to hunt out your French bargains and soak up the local atmosphere.
If you would like to go out and about on foot there is much to see and do. There are several hiking routes in the surrounding area. A short walk down the hill from the cottage is the river Vienne which is suitable for fishing and kayaking.
There is many water sports available along the river at the waterskiing school including pedalos and there is kayaking from the nearby village of Moussac. There are many scenic walks around the cottage and also it is well placed for cycling with many cycle tours passing by. We have an old disused railway trail which runs over the spectacular 19th century Viaduct and goes for miles perfect for mountain bikes or walking.
For the more adventurous there is bungy jumping off the 19th Century Viaduct, zip wires across the river and climbing courses amongst the trees, all within minutes walk from the cottage.
We have a very experienced cycling tour guide available for Mountain Bike trips for 2-3 people. Further details can be provided on request. Average level of fitness required.
There is a bar/restaurant La Viaduc just 200 metres walk from the cottage which is also a Tabac. Down from the bar there is another restaurant called the Barrage which is open most lunch times and most Friday and Saturday evenings with a popular Fish and Chips night every first Friday of the month.
For more restaurants and bars you can walk into L'isle Jourdain across the river or the Viaduct and sample the typical French food on offer there. We personally recommend Le10 for coffee, cakes, food, drinks and often live entertainment. There are several other restaurants in the town and surrounding area if you don't fancy cooking.
A few hundred metres from the town square there is the supermarche and service station. There is a pharmacy in the town square.
Larger towns of Confolens and Montmorillon are approx 30mins drive away in opposite directions. Likewise the cities and airports of Poitiers and Limoges are an easy 1 hour drive away.
Maison La Roche Gite is fully French registered and classified Meuble de Tourisme 2* with many 4 star extras.
