About Graham Humphrey
My wife Anne and I are both retired and have properties in France and the UK. We brought are house in France upon retirement as both of us very much enjoy the French lifestyle. The pace of life is what we both remember as children along with untouched countryside and village life still underpinning French life. Since being in France we have made a good social network and enjoy are time having family, friends and guest to share and enjoy our little piece of France.
Graham Humphrey purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Graham Humphrey chose Azay-sur-Thouet
We chose the area because of its rural setting and beautiful views whilst at the same time being in easy reach of transport links to and from the UK. It also provides great base for walking, cycling and other outdoor activities with the La Rochelle and the Maris Poitevan being easily accessible. The area is also severed with daily markets in and around surrounding villages providing good quality local produce for all to savoir.
What makes this Cottage unique
The gite which was renovated in 2012 and is annexed to the main house, provides modern comforts and facilities, whilst at the same time retaining its original character and charm. The gite provides wonderful views and tranquility whilst being easily accessible for local supermarkets, bars and bakeries. We are on site when guest are on vacation and can provide ideas and assistance of things to do if required. The gite is located between the two main wine regions of France being the Loire Valley and Bordeaux for those who enjoy wine. Our nearest town ten kilometres away is the historic town of Parthenay which boasts ramparts and medieval architecture to enjoy.
Lovely comfortable gite in peaceful location
We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay at the gite. It is spacious and well-equipped, with a beautiful farmhouse kitchen and patio overlooking the garden and fields. The owners were very welcoming. A great place to get away from it all!
We stayed for a 7 nights trip and enjoy our stay. We were 2 adults, 3 childrens and 2 dogs. Our arrival was a great time because of the weather but also because of the kindness of graham and his wife and the beautiful house in the nature. Everything was cool, clean, and spacious, a garden and a lake just for us..A wonderful time there and restful .We would definitely recommend this place.
Beautiful, friendly, comfortable and generous 😃
Firstly, Graham and Anne are lovely, friendly, helpful, fun and go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay. The welcome pack is the best we've ever had! We arrived late after a very long drive from Buckinghamshire, so to open a fridge full of food and alcohol was perfect start to our holiday. The Gite is modern, spacious, has every amenity and very comfortable. The garden has a nice view, is large and secure, which is essential for our 2 dogs. Our dogs loved it, enjoying laying about in the sun and making friends with owners puppies Max and Molly 😊
The supermarket and local bakers are very close and we were lucky enough to receive a daily supply of home grown vegetables from Graham and Anne. There's also a local vets for those travelling with dogs and needing pet passports stamped before leaving France.
Graham and Anne's Gite is the perfect place to kick back, relax and unwind for dogs and humans alike 😃
Thank you 😉
Lovely house, nice surroundings, great owners.
We (a family of 2 adults and 2 young children) stayed here for a week and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay (despite the unseasonally wet weather). The gite is spotlessly clean, well maintained and is surrounded by lovely gardens that are a testament to the efforts of the kind, helpful and generous owners (Graham and Anne) who live next door. We would recommend the gite without hesitation.
My partner and I stayed here last summer. The gite is nicely presented, was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed. There is a small fishing lake a couple of minutes walk through the adjacent field which is lovely for some peaceful relaxation. We would def recommend this gite for a 'get away from it all' retreat.
Has an amazing time with fantastic hosts. The gite, surrounding gardens and countryside were an utter delight. Would recommend to anyone who wants an idyllic rural holiday.
