Our Gites

Our charming one bedroom gîte Le Petit Bijou (the little gem) is ideal for a couple or single people in search of a perfect, relaxing holiday in the beautiful French countryside.

Gite - le petit bijou

We have restored our barn back to its former glory. It is full of original features - oak beams, stone walls and a wonderful fireplace complete with woodburning stove. Decorated in a chic, modern country style, the lounge/dining area is beautifully furnished and also has the benefit of a TV and DVD/CD player.  Free WiFi is also available.

Complimenting the lovely old features are the all the essentials for a really comfortable stay - a fully fitted kitchen area complete with dishwasher, fridge, freezer, oven & hob - perfect for creating wonderful meals with all the fabulous French produce available on your doorstep.

The bedroom is delightful - with open beams, built in wardrobe and comfortable wrought iron double bed. Enjoy gazing at the wonderful stars through the velux window or watching the sun come up as you luxuriate in the knowledge that another blissfully relaxing day is ahead of you. The pristine, modern, fully tiled en-suite bathroom has a bath and shower.

Outside, there is a private deck and garden area complete with barbeque and garden furniture not to mention the fact that you can enjoy swimming in our heated indoor swimming pool (shared).
