Set in tranquil surroundings and backing onto woodlands, this stunning gite has been recently renovated with plenty of character, reflecting its humble mud and straw barn origins. Designed for couples, a family or a group of friends, there are 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin), 1 bathroom (with shower) and an open plan kitchen / dining / sitting room. (There is also an additional sofa bed if required).
On one side a covered terrace overlooks the pool and on the other is an open terraced dining and BBQ area with views of the peaceful countryside and setting sun. The gite is a completely separate building lying adjacent to the owner’s property a few metres away.
The natural swimming pool (10m x 5m) is a rare, ecological gem and is filtered completely naturally by an adjacent pond filled with aquatic plants. Chemical free, the water is beautifully clear and gentle on the skin. The pool is protected by an infra-red alarm that sounds as soon as the perimeter line is crossed. There is plenty of local wildlife to be seen and heard, including the enthusiastic chorus of frogs in the evenings.
Available throughout the year, the gite is versatile in all seasons. In the cooler months, it is warm, snug and cosy with a wonderful roaring fire (wood heater), perfect for a romantic escape.
