Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Saint-Cyr - Gîte de Saint Laurent
A former spacious and comfortable sheepfold in a wooded setting
Listed “2 épis” by the Gîtes de France
This 90 m² gîte furnished in 2009 in the sheepfold of a small land holding in Poitou dating back from the 17th century is located at the end of a small road lined with woods and fields. The courtyard of this former farmhouse is shared with the gîte and the house of the owner.
Close to the Futuroscope theme park, Poitiers and Châtellerault, it is the ideal place to discover the cultural and touristic marvels of the department of Vienne.
Nature lovers will have the opportunity to observe the fauna and flora and to have a stroll in the 148 acre property and the Pinail Nature Reserve.
It is comfortable, spacious and well fitted. Its veranda and its fenced garden make it a pleasant place of stay in family in all seasons.

The things I’m most interested in are, among other things, the local history and the fauna and flora. I’m particularly sensitive to the preservation of the environment and the biodiversity. The Gîte Saint-Laurent is a refuge of the French League for the Protection of Birds and has the label “Ecogeste”. I invite you to follow me with simple actions: waste sorting, eco-consumption and use of biodegradable products. I started to create a garden with “simple” plants that were formerly used in the countryside to cure or appease the pains and I would show them to you with great pleasure.
My parents left their mark by renovating this property that is also full of childhood memories. It is a place of refuge and its history dates back to many years ago. I want to share with my transient guests, the energy of tranquillity and serenity that emerge from Saint-Laurent.
This gîte is a haven of peace in the middle of the nature where it feels good to recharge your batteries after a busy everyday life. In the summer nights, the stags come to bell behind the fence of the garden. Children can unwind on the swing or run on the path quite freely.
