Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
It's all about the pool!
Well, it's been said in the header - the pool is excellent. The temperature is around 27-28degC, making it very comfortable to use! Needless to say, the kids used it a lot. It is less than 2m deep, so taller users can stand up at the far end. 6 sunbeds are provided, but have a fixed curve to them - you cannot really lie on your back if you plan to sunbathe. The whole outdoor area is nicely landscaped with a variety of trees and shrubs.
The owners are very friendly (French native speakers), welcoming, quiet and helpful, without encroaching on your privacy. It helps them if you can speak a little French. They allow unrestricted use of the lake at the back of their property - including fishing. Note that their house shares the same land, but the gite is screened off and you have absolute use of the pool. The use of bikes is an added bonus, however the nearby etang (large lake) and forest on the Google Map cannot be accessed.
I expected the gite to be in a very remote location, but there are many things to see within a 20 minute radius, and most big attractions are within a 40 minute radius. The surrounding roads are good, the gite being ~1km off a main road.
The gite itself was renovated in 2012, so is fresh and clean. It is compact at 70m2, but with good weather that's not an issue. Some people may be put off by some wall panels made from chipboard, but it is all done well and it didn't bother us. The kitchen is amply equipment, but doesn't have a kettle. The bathroom is tight due to the presence of a top-loader washing machine and the hot water tank, however there is enough room around the toilet and sink, with a very nice walk-in shower. The sofa converts into a futon, and comfortably sits four , alternatively a single bed can be put in the lobby to the bathroom and pool.
There is a small area in front of the house to park (basically an area to pull off the road) and you enter through a gate. The surrounding area is agricultural - with wheat, corn and other crops. It is very quiet, with the very odd car or tractor passing outside, and the sounds of nature ever changing during the day.
In summary, we had a great holiday at Le Bossuet - helped enormously by superb weather which allowed us to be outdoors most of the time.
Étable à animaux transformée en gîte
Des vacances ratés une désillusion totale
Mes petits sont revenues avec des poux et les chambres sont infectées de puces et grosses fourmilles
A déconseiller vivement .
Gîte agréable et reposant
Bon accueil des propriétaires.
Gîte agréable et très bien équipé (manque peut-être un lave-vaisselle pour famille nombreuse) et cadre très reposant.
Nous avons bien profité de la piscine qui est chauffée.
Week-end à refaire
