Just over an hour’s drive from La Rochelle, Nantes and Poitiers airports and within easy reach of Ferry Ports and the TGV (high-speed train) network, The Stables at La Blatière makes a beautiful setting for your French adventure. Set in half an acre of land with fruit trees, plants and lawns and surrounded by winding lanes and farmland, the newly redecorated Stables comes complete with a shared all year round heated covered swimming pool with inflatables, free Wifi, books, DVD's, bikes, fitness room, outdoor and indoor games, outdoor dining area, BBQ and patio heater. Our little part of south-western France also boasts 2400 hours of sunshine a year making it the second sunniest part of France and the perfect place to enjoy an all year round holiday and the peace and tranquility of country living but still be close to all that Poitou-Charantes has to offer. This perfect, easy-to-reach location means there are so many wonderful things to do on your doorstep or slightly further afield. A leisurely stroll will take you into the local village for a coffee or to pick up a baguette or 10 mins along the road try Go Karting or the Parc Aventure with the kids, fishing at Pescalis or Moncoutant with its restaurants and market. Then just a little further away you can explore the beautiful cites of Niort, Poitiers and La Rochelle, go golfing at Bressuire enjoy the excitement of Futurescope, step back in time at Puy du Fou. Why not visit the wolves at the Zoodyssee or enjoy a relaxing day boating along the canals of France’s own Green Venice and there is so much more too… you will be spoilt for choice! We can’t wait to welcome you to La Blatière – your little piece of French heaven… Lesley & Paul More

Interaction with guests
Paul and I dreamt of relocating to France and running our own gîte business so we left our careers in advertising & finance in Edinburgh in March 2018, hired a motorhome & set out to travel around the country until we found the perfect location. And we found La Blatièr. We fell in love with it's idyllic rural setting & the charm of the converted stables & the farmhouse - ideal for guests. It also had a converted barn for us to live in, so we can be on hand if you need us but at the same time enable you to have all the privacy you wish to enjoy your stay. So we sold up in Edinburgh, moved here in mid September and have lovingly redecorated both properties and are now ready to welcome you to The Stables in this lovely part of France.
