Les Hiboux gites are typical Charentaise self catering properties that maintain all the traditional features of rural France while having been renovated to a high standard to include all the mod cons to make the holiday a real pleasure.
Each of these houses has its own terrace, with patio furniture for “al fresco” eating and there is a communal barbecue area. The homes look onto the courtyard, which is at the end of a short driveway and has plenty of parking space.
In the 3 acres of enclosed gardens with picturesque views of the surrounding countryside, the properties share a 5mX10m swimming pool. It has steps leading down into the water and is surrounded by a terraced area which is ideal for sunbathing. For safety, the pool is surrounded by a wall with a lockable self-closing gate.
In the formal area, trees and flowerbeds surround a gated and fenced pond, and there is a boules pitch.
There are a great many activities on site for both children and adults. A games room is available just off the courtyard, with table tennis, table football, a pool table and outdoor sports equipment. Bicycles for all ages are available. There are two fields, the first of which has a children’s area with swings, a slide, children’s cabin, football goal posts and a large sunken trampoline. The lower field is left as a wildlife habitat.
Deep in the French countryside, this is truly a holiday haven.
