It conforms with all French pool security regulations, & for added security & peace of mind the pool area is fully fenced 160m2 / 1725ft2 pool area.

Whilst the pool is fenced & covered to comply with French legislation, your safety remains your own responsibility and children must be supervised by an adult at all times.



6/7 seater hottub / jacuzzi


Our pool is a traditional chlorinated pool, checked & maintained daily, to ensure bather comfort.
Solar heated shower

Please be aware that salt water swimming pools also contain chlorine, some people claim, that their salt systems are chlorine free, this is untrue. A well managed traditional chlorinated pool is no more or less “harsh” than a salt system swimming pool. Google it !

All pool maintenance is undertaken by Alex and Alison. You’re on holiday – there’s nothing for you to do unless you really want to.

Shaded parking.
Stunning views over rolling countryside from gite, terrace and pool. Over 1/2 acre of established gardens for sole use by gite guests, with many mature trees offering plenty of dappled shade.

Wide variety of fruit trees including cherry, plum, grape, apple, peach, fig, apricot and walnut. Guests are welcome to pick the fruit in season.
Some garden maintenance (yes grass cutting and watering) will be necessary during your stay – but we’ll endeavourer to do this whilst you are out and about.



We are surrounded by open fields and woods – excellent for an evening stroll or cycle. We have a selection of adult bikes – they are suitable for popping to the village to collect bread, but not for doing a stage of the “Tour de France”. If you’re a serious cyclist, we’d suggest you bring your own.
There is plenty of garden furniture and barbecue equipment.

Sun loungers, table & chairs available by the pool. Each gite has a terrace with BBQ (Charcoal), wooden table and chairs.



We have hundreds of photos including copies of our guest comments book.

WE (Alex and Alison) LIVE DISCREETLY ON SITE WITH NELLY OUR GENTLE BELGIAN SHEPHERD DOG. She is head of guest relations & gets more comments than we do. We’ve had many guests return because the children want to see Nelly.
