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 swimming pool and sun terrace, set in three acres of private parkland.
L'Hirondelle, sleeping 8, a characterful gite, approached via a wide path from the car park, has a feeling of spaciousness as you enter through large French doors into an atrium which rises from a tiled floor with decorative frieze up to exposed original roof timbers and a galleried landing.

Why Colette and Gary Stephenson chose Lorigné
We fell in love with this property driving into the courtyard. It was picture perfect, even during the winter. Now we are heading to summer, the roses are in bloom, the birds are chirping and it is absolutely bliss.

There are lots of things to see and do in the area. These include:
Cognac is only 45 minutes drive, with good cognac and wine tours. Niort, 50 kms, has a chateau, shops, restaurants and kayaking.
Vallee des Singes Monkey Park (www.la-vallee-des-singes.fr) is only 30 minutes away - wander from islet to islet in this parkland setting and observe monkeys roaming free in this beautiful cage free habitat.
Futuroscope (www.en.futuroscope.com) in Poitiers, about 50 kms away, is a high tech theme park with extreme thrills, images in giant-screen format, breath-taking shows and interactive adventures that will delight your senses, and more. Fun for all the family.
Venise Verte (www.la-venise-verte.com) at Niort is a beautiful area of canals with boutique cafes
and restaurants. Why not hire a punt with a driver and cruise the waterways.
Aire de Rejallent (20 minutes away) on the Charente is particularly scenic with its little bridges and grassy islands. Here you can swim, BBQ and picnic, ramble on riverside trails and of course the kids will love the play area. During July and August canoes and kayaks are available to hire. The popular restaurant offers alfresco dining with views over the river. Don't forget to bring bread for the resident ducks and swans!
Every September, Angouleme fills with racing enthusiasts for the Circuit des Ramparts
(www.circuit-des-remparts.com), an annual gathering of classic and vintage cars. Modern safety equipment has replaced the hay bales and wooden fences but otherwise the circuit remains unchanged since the first Circuit des Ramparts race in 1939.
