Our first floor apartment comprised a large lounge decorated in period style. There was one double and one single bedroom plus a modern fully equipped kitchen and a modern well-appointed bathroom with a spacious shower. The apartment was very comfortable and well-maintained. On arrival for our week's stay we were warmly greeted by the owner's father who provided useful and interesting information about the building and the apartment. The apartment could not have been better situated for exploring the town and its attractions as everything was, quite literally, within a few minutes walk away. This was, to date, by far the most spectacular property we have rented in France. Although Poitiers is not a traditional tourist destination, it has an excellent selection of quality cafes and restaurants and is definitely worth a visit.

The gite itself is immaculate and very well equipped with a charming French atmosphere. There is a private outdoor area with beautiful flowers. It is situated in a small hamlet surrounded by fields and has vineyards very close by. Sarah-Jane and Gerald are extremely helpful and friendly and not in any way intrusive. The gite is close to the main road which takes you to the nearest town with great ease. It really is a wonderful experience to spend the week here.

Well appointed and equipped with all the usual appliances and kitchen utensils required for cooking. Wifi was excellent once we found the correct code to use! The lovely pool was large enough to share if you needed too, and a great place to soak up the sun. Easy access to the main roads and very close to the N10 motorway making visiting the major towns a breeze. We did not have time to use the many bikes of varying sizes, but would be an ideal location to cycle around. And the resident cat was very welcoming too. Highly recommended!
