About Bev & Chris Hutton
We both grew up in Manchester and really wanted to be in the countryside. I worked in travel when I left school and loved visiting different countries. After my second child was born I gave up work and became a child minder so I could spend more time with my children. Chris worked in insurance when he first left school and then worked for a large bank. His job became stressful with lots of targets to reach. We wanted a quieter less stressful life. We moved to France in 2004 with our two young children Laura aged 6 and Daniel aged 4 our third child Aimée was born here.
Bev & Chris Hutton purchased this Barn in 2004
Why Bev & Chris Hutton chose Lezay
We chose this area as the weather is good you still get the seasons and the summer isn't too hot. We fell in love with the garden and the trees and bought the property with the idea of making a small holiday complex.
What makes this Barn unique
We renovated our farmhouse first and then the gîtes. We decided early on that we wanted to make the gîtes wheelchair accessible , the size of the gîtes also allows families and extended families and friends to holiday together. We have made some great friends and met people from all different walks of life. We are onsite if you need any help or information and are happy for the children to accompany us to feed the chickens and collect the eggs. The gîtes have their own private garden areas so privacy is respected too. We are happy to welcome dogs as both gîtes have their own private enclosed garden areas.

August 2017 stay
Had a great relaxing stay, property has everything needed spacious even with a wheelchair. Nothing too much trouble for owners, they arranged equipment for our disabled son so we didn't have to take it with us. Thanks for a great stay.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad you had a good holiday hope to see you again soon.

Fantastic summer holiday in lovely accommodation
We spent a fantastic 2 weeks at Les Cerisiers. We had the larger gite and my sister and her family stayed in the smaller gite. We were extremely happy with our gite, it was very clean and spacious. The garden was a brilliant size especially as we had our very energetic puppy and 2 children under 5, it was very secure and they spent many hours outside having fun. The pool was fantastic, a decent size and never freezing cold, we spent lots of time in it and the kids still miss it.
The owners Chris and Bev live next door and are lovely people, did everything they could to help and were there if we needed them for anything always very friendly.
We have been to a lot if places in France but les cerisiers is by far our favourite, we all had a lovely relaxing laid back holiday made all the better by our fantastic hosts. We have tried to book again for next year but unfortunately it's already booked on our dates but we will definately be back the year after!
Lezay our nearest village comes to life on a Tuesday morning when there is a large street market and indoor market. Here you can buy local produce including bakey items, fruit and veg, fish, meat, wine. There are also houseware stalls, clothes and plants. Melle a 15minute drive away has a silver mine to visit and 3 romanesque churches. The Valley des Singes is a 25 minute drive away this is a monkey park with all different species. You walk through and accross different islands where the monkeys roam free. This is great for kids of all ages and there are play areas and picnic areas as well as cafés on your way round. Within an hours drive you have swimming lakes and rivers lifeguards are there during the summer holidays. Futuroscope in Poitiers is a large amusement park with a difference it is an hour away take a picnic and stay the whole day there is a laser show when the sun goes down! For anyone interested in shopping the centre of Poitiers or Niort have a good range of shops from boutiques to the larger chains. There are lots of restaurants and places of interest too! If you want a day at the seaside La Rochelle is a must steeped with history, lots of restaurants, museums, a harbour and even an aquarium. The best beach is Châtelaillon plage unless you want to take the toll bridge over to the Ile de Ré where there are plenty of lovely beaches and harbour towns to visit.
