Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Saint-Jean-d'Angely area - Olive Cottage
Original 2 bedroomed cottage, pool,safe garden, Wifi, near St Jean d'Angely
Olive Cottage sleeps 4 plus a cot. Lovely, quirky holiday home set in it's own large secure garden. There are lots of olive trees and views over the fields. Relax in the private over ground pool.
The house is decorated in it's own individual 'chateau chic' style, albeit on a small scale, but with the family in mind.
The house has been newly redecorated.
Well behaved pets allowed.
The front door leads to the bright, sunny living room, equipped with French and UK free serve TV, DVD and videos. Free WIFI connection. Off this room is a separate kitchen, fully equipped with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, electric oven and hob, microwave, coffee maker etc. There is a kitchen table, when you can't eat outside. The bathroom has a bath with a shower inside, toilet, sink and washing machine. There is a double bedroom downstairs (off the living room), with space for a cot (provided on request).
The spiral staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom. The bedroom has it's own door off a small landing. The bed can be either a double or a set of twin beds, depending on your needs. There is a further single fold-out bed if you need it. There is a second toilet and sink in the corner.
The living room has double French windows that lead to a terrace. A large roll-out blind makes a perfect area to sit and relax, eat or have a drink - a great, secluded suntrap.
The new, wooden, overground pool (@ 8.5m x 4.5m) is easy to watch from the patio. The garden is not overlooked and has off street parking.
There is an mediterranean alley of olive trees (hence the name) and lavender leading down the garden, the back overlooks the fields and lots of mature trees. The garden is walled all around. There's plenty of safe space for playing games - table tennis table include - whilst the adults relax with a chilled glass of local Pineau.
The house has heating for all year round rental.

Hi, my name is Shelley and I look after the house for the owners. I have lived in the next village with my family since 2001, so have a good knowledge of the local area and am happy to answer any questions. I have a lot of experience in looking after gites, both of my own and other peoples. 2013 is the first rental year for Olive Cottage and I think we've hit the right note with this house.
We bought this cottage because of its fantastic location close to many historic and beautiful towns. It is also within an hour's drive of the Atlantic coast with its many miles of secluded sandy beaches. The cottage itself is beautifully furnished with a large, safe (lockable gates) garden. all in all, a stay at Olive Cottage combines total relaxation with the opportunity to do many varied activities.
