Our holiday gite is located in the beautiful 'Vallée de la Gartempe'. It is in fact the converted donkey stable adjoining our 'Maison de Maitre type of farmhouse. No longer a 'working' farm, nevertheless, part of the attraction is our small menagerie of sheep, donkeys, chickens, ducks, geese, cats and two dogs that will form part of your surroundings when staying here.
We have an inflatable pool for the little ones
For serious swimming, kayaking and canoeing our property adjoins a nice river
- We pride ourselves on being pretty flexible, just ask!
Bonjour I'm Diane and I look forward to welcoming you into our home which I share with my Dutch husband Marcus.
Our home is an old French farmhouse "Maison d maître" from around 1820s which we are slowly restoring. The double & triple rooms we have available are on the top floor of our house and offer a lovely view across the Gartempe valley. We thoroughly enjoy the French country life style and sharing this experience with our guests. I grow and preserve much of our own produce in our potager and orchard while Marcus enjoys restoring our home and his old 1948 Citroen traction avant.
We have a 2 dogs, 3 cats, small flock of sheep, lambs,and chickens producing eggs for your breakfast,not forgetting the geese, ducks and three Poitou donkeys, who wait eagerly for you to feed them a carrot or two.
We hope you will find time to explore the path to the beautiful Gartempe where the ruins of our water mill form the perfect setting for a day by the river fishing, canoeing, a picnic or snooze in the sun.
We have a double room and also a triple room available.
Children and pets are very welcome. We have a cot/high chair and most of the essential baby items you may need. There are many games to entertain them and they will enjoy the outdoor life with our menagerie of animals.
