About the property

Family friendly holiday homes, rural location. 3 bedrooms with 2 shower rooms.

Le Noisetier holiday cottage at Les Hiboux farmhouse and gites. Beautiful 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.

Why Tim & Ellen Weir chose Crézières

We work hard to ensure that our self-catering properties create a holiday environment that maximises the enjoyment of both adults and children. To call the garden and grounds an adventure playground is perhaps an over-statement, but there is much to stimulate and provide hours of pleasure for all. This allows everyone to relax on the terrace or poolside, knowing that they don't have to continually think of what to do next.

There is much of interest in the area and those without the constraints of school timetables can enjoy the location with all its peace and tranquillity.

What makes this cottage unique

Rural location but not too far from civilisation! Free wifi for those who like to keep in touch. Sunken trampoline so safe for all ages. Games' rooms and boules pitch. Lovely shared swimming pool and superb gardens. The cottages are tidy and well kept and are all fully equipped.

Fantastic break in France!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the gite Le Noisetier, at Les Hiboux. Self-catering in France, was an excellent option this Christmas for us. The cottage was clean, warm and well-equipped. The gardens were fully enclosed. We took several walks around the quiet country roads and the dart board in the games room was a real success. As a holiday rental we could not fault Les Hiboux and will definitely visit again.
