Located on a hill with uninterrupted views, L'Ancien Chai is perfect for families who want a rural setting without being remote. Also great for family and friends gatherings as we have plenty of space. L'Ancien Chai is part of a converted farm. We enjoy a south facing patio with amazing evening sunsets to enjoy with a glass of wine. Bright and open plan, the ground floor living space comprises dining area, kitchen and lounge with log fire burner. We have free wifi with really good download strength. There are lovely views from every bedroom window, especially from the upstairs bedrooms which can see for miles. There is good wheelchair disabled access on the ground floor. If you need a ramp for a wheelchair please let us know.
The fantastic views and sunsets are great for painters and photographers. BBQ outdoors. Surrounded by corn and sunflower fields. Our friendly owner-occupier site shares a large 4 x 14m pool and tennis court with 6 other homes. The pool is being substantially upgraded and relined in 2018 offering much more easy access for children, disabled and elderly. The pool has a security fence (legal requirement in France) that makes it safe for little children running about the gardens as they won't be able to stray in to the pool area.
Indoors we have spacious accommodation with log burning fire. The atmosphere is light and airy with an open-plan feel. There is a large satellite TV with UK channels. DVD/video/CD collection. DVD/blu-ray player. Excellent free wifi with strong signal. Games, jigsaws, boules, tennis rackets. 4 adults bicycles and one child.
The house (or gite) L'Ancien Chai is situated on the edge of a small group of privately owned properties. The place was once a farm with L'Ancien Chai having magnificent views to the south, west and east. Our house is very private from the others and you will feel you have the place to yourselves.
There is a securely-fenced, large shared pool (14 metres x 4 metres) in the extensive grounds. The swimming pool is open from the end of May to the early October. There is also a full sized tennis court and we provide tennis rackets.
Parking is available adjacent to the house.
This is a non-smoking residence. Sorry, no pets.

Feedback from previous visitor, James Thomas
"One of the reasons for choosing Le Plat was for the spectacular views along with a pool close enough to the house that the kids could jump in and out all day long. Being a shared pool never concerned us as it was a great opportunity for our kids to mix with other children on the complex. Within 5 minutes of arriving they had made friends with a couple of children similar in age, giving Mum and Dad some much needed “us time!” Le Plat is one of those places that if you want your privacy, there is no better place, however the other residents could not have made us more welcome. Nothing is a problem and collectively they had a wealth of local knowledge. To our surprise, the pool was only ever used by ours and another families kids. There is plenty of time during the day for people to enjoy a long relaxing swim without over excited children getting in the way. Access to the shared tennis court was very straightforward. Most of the time it was empty with the occasional game taking place away from the heat of the day. If its exclusivity you’re after then L'Ancien Chai has it in abundance, you’d never know it was shared by other families, who for the record are the friendliest bunch you’d ever want to meet!"
