Additional amenities & feature info
We try to make our guests feel this is their home during their stay. We therefore provide those useful things that are difficult in small quantities - salt, pepper, cooking/olive oil, kitchen foil etc. We provide all domestic towels and linen and also beach/pool towels. We have found this gite is very popular... the twin room is very large ..so we are very happy to provide an extra bed to accommodate an extra person if needed

We have had enquiries to bring ' Granny' and we are happy to offer accommodation in the main house ... so that they can have ' privacy' .. but join the family during the day !

About the neighbourhood
Warm summers, long (and can be fairly hot (38C) days). Lots of history. This was once 'English' Aquitaine - Queen Eleanor's home at Neuil sur l'Autize is only 30km away. The Venise Verte (the drained fens) are also an interesting tourist attraction, with trips in powered craft, canoes and punts. There is a good bar/restaurant in the village (2km) and several more in the surrounding area. Futuroscope and Puy du Fou are each just over an hour away. Varied beaches (from very quiet to frenetic are within an hour-and-a-quarter, although all can be busy in July and August. There are several inland lakeside 'beaches' and watersport facilities within half an hour. There is an extensive network of cycle/walking tracks, and several riding stables locally.
