Heating: This lovely former farmhouse has very thick stone walls which keep the rooms (including bedrooms) fresh during the hot summer days and evenings. For exceptionally hot periods all rooms have electric fans.
For low season rentals or B&B stays, the house is kept lovely and warm via full central heating and a wood burning stove in the lounge and in the kitchen.
Garden maintenance & welcome: We will maintain the garden & pool, making one visit per week to cut the lawns, check the pool filters and clean the pool. The pool does not need heating during the high season, as it is covered by a telescopic cover (abri). Guests can swim with the abri in place or its easy to roll back each day. The pool is then totally exposed to the sun. The abri also ensures complete safety when closed. Additional pool heating can be provided at a weekly charge of £40.
Our welcome pack consists of two botles of Haut Poitou wine, tea, coffee, milk & sugar. Plus we'll make you drinks when you arrive. After a long drive you might like a nice cup of tea or a cold beer. Most guests like to take a trip to the excellent local supermarket on arrival, which is open until 19.00 on saturdays. We ensure that essentials such as washing up liquid, dishwasher powder, loo rolls and cleaning products are available and guests are requested to top up these supplies as they use them.
Cycling holidays & activity holidays: We also offer fully catered cycling holidays and activity breaks, during the early summer and autumn, when the weather is kind in Haut Poitou. Please see our website or contact us for further information. Our cycling breaks are for couples or small groups and include fully detailed maps and route guides around this very picturesque area. The route guides have been carefully planned for us by an experienced cyclist and include all necessary informaiton about distances, view points and the best cafes to stop for lunch or a citron presse. We will be on call to drive out to collect you if the need arises.
Our leisure breaks include - walking, french cookery courses, get fit courses and life coaching breaks. All are fully catered including breakfast, lunch and dinner, with local wines included.
Of course the full glory of the flower filled gardens, toys and games and the lovely pool are also available for guests to use on all our activity holidays.
