Le Chai is a one-bedroom gîte with :
Upstairs : one double bedroom, with space for a child's bed (provided by us). En suite shower room.
Downstairs : Open-plan kitchen/diner/living room. The kitchen has an electric oven & hob, dishwasher, fridge with freezer shelf, washing machine, microwave, etc.
The living area has a comfy sofa, UK satellite freeview TV/French TNT, books & tourist info. There is unlimited free Wi-Fi (who can live without it these days?!).
As this is our dedicated couples' gite, Le Chai has its private outside area at the front of the house rather than at the rear with the other units, and has a BBQ and table & chairs, as well as its own sunloungers.
At the rear of the house, you'll find our glorious 10mx5m heated pool, and just beyond this is the play area for children, then over an acre of open garden for your children to play (if you can drag them out of the pool!!). As well as swings, a slide and trampoline, we provide a sports net and lots of racquets & balls for anyone who’s feeling energetic. Because we’re the last property on the lane, there are no passing cars (just the occasional tractor), and we’re surrounded by fields of sunflowers or maize and an oak wood.
Our location is peaceful and rural, with a pork butcher and cognac & pineau distillery within walking distance, a bakery, a general store and a seasonal al-fresco restaurant in a village 4 miles away, and a different restaurant in a village 3 miles away.
With over ten years’ experience of welcoming guests to our holiday rental properties here, we can offer lots of help & advice and to help you plan your days out, we have prepared a book of our own recommendations of where to go & what to see, and how best to enjoy this beautiful area, depending on what kind of day out takes your fancy. Because we live on site, we’re usually on hand if you need us for any kind of advice, and we have teenage daughters who are only too happy to offer their babysitting services for a small fee, should you fancy an adults-only evening (or daytime!!).
