Gites dans les Champs, situated in beautiful countryside in Poitou-Charentes, offers three spacious gites of a very high standard. The gites can be rented individually or as a group, sleeping up to 20.
Ideally located for walking, cycling, kayaking and horse riding. With a fenced, in-ground swimming pool and sun terrace, set in three acres of private parkland.
Each gite has access to Wi-Fi Internet, together with French TV and a selection of DVDs. A relaxing environment to spend time with family and friends. We are a 5 minute drive (or a short bike ride) to the local supermarket (SuperU) and boulangeries. There is a selection of bikes available for guests use.
This property, La Chouette, is approached via its own wide garden path. This impressive gite is entered through large glazed French doors opening into a magnificent atrium which rises to full height from a patterned tiled floor to magnificent oak roof timbers and a galleried landing.
Accommodating 8 people, the spacious open plan living area comprises kitchen, dining area and comfortable lounge. The kitchen is generously equipped with dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine, microwave and gas cooker. The lounge and dining areas are well furnished with carefully selected local items to give an authentic flavour.
In addition to the glazed entrance doors, there are two further French doors leading onto the courtyard. Also on the ground floor is a pretty twin-bedded room and a bathroom of “wet-room” design, comprising shower, washbasin and WC and non-slip floor tiles, heated towel rail and fully tiled walls. Upstairs by way of an attractive hardwood staircase are three further bedrooms with attractive chestnut flooring and a second bathroom.
There are two double bedrooms and a twin-bedded room, each furnished in local dark oak furniture, providing ample storage, and with views across fields to the ancient village of Vaussais and its 11th century church. The bathroom comprises a marble-topped vanity basin with lighted mirror, walk-in shower and WC, and heated towel rail.
A galleried landing overlooks the atrium and the courtyard garden. All rooms are fitted with electric heaters. French TV, DVD player and a selection of DVDs are available for guests. A cot and high chair are available upon request.
Outside the garden area has its own barbecue, table and chairs for those al fresco meals, and a patio alongside the courtyard.
