Les Jonies is a typically French Gite updated to offer lovely accommodation for the perfect holiday. Vaulted ceilings and stone walls. The gite sits within 25 acres of mainly woodland, so there is plenty of land to explore, alongside the owner's own home, shares a stunning solar-heated pool with the owners.

The garden is fully secure for small dogs. All linens and towels, except pool towels are provided. Satellite FreeView English TV. Free WiFi.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Carol Power


Year property purchased 2015
Why this location? We think this location is perfect as it is secluded enough to enjoy either total peace and quiet or to make as much noise as we (and our guests) want yet it is close to many small villages and two larger towns so best of both worlds!
Unique benefits of property Seclusion and privacy - nothing is overlooked. Woods and fields are perfect for dogs and adventurous children. Shops and supermarkets are only a short drive away.

The Gite exceeded our expectations it was very characteristic and set in an amazing location. The added bonus to the stay was the owners dogs Phantom and Jet, they were just so friendly and loved cuddles!! The customer service was amazing, Carol was away on business so unfortunately we did not get to meet her but Tony was brilliant company and advised us on everything that we questioned.

We also got to experience a local vendange thanks to Tony which just topped off the end of our stay. All amenities are really close and it is worth tearing yourself away from the Gite to go and look, i would definitely recommend this location to family and friends as it was just so peaceful but equally full of places to visit.

Thank you again to Tony for his help and to both Tony and Carol for letting out such a wonderful Gite!!

We have just enjoyed a wonderful two weeks at Les Jonies. Every aspect of our stay surpassed our expectations. I would highly recommend a visit!

The accommodation was perfect for us, we had Three Teenage boys, who shared the main bedroom (one double and one single bed - a few grumbles from the eldest who was made to share with the youngest ;o) and we had the bedroom on the mezzanine floor which was accessed by a quaint spiral staircase (which was tricky to begin with, especially after a couple of glasses of wine!)

There was a large lounge area with plenty of seating to watch the TV in the evenings (no DVD player but English free view available and you could log into Netflix ext. too) The kitchen was very well appointed and had everything you could possibly need. there where two fridges which meant a drinks fridge ;o) excellent...

Outside there was a covered area with a table where we eat all our meals (there was a dinning table indoors, but we preferred to eat outdoors as the weather was perfect) we had a BBQ next to this area which we used often. There was an enclosed garden area that had sun loungers and plenty of space for badminton / football.

The thing that made it perfect for us though was the POOL! it was large enough to properly swim and was cleaned every morning and put away every evening, when we had finished. The owners where great too and were very accommodating and very patient with the three boys! We also loved the two dogs ;o) THANK YOU!

This gite is an absolute find. The location is gorgeous but a car is needed to get around.
The owners Carol and Tony are great hosts, we we’re nicely welcomed and made to feel total at ease.
The gite has everything you need for a fabulous and happy holiday, the kitchen is just right, the bedrooms are beautiful and very homely. The living room is nice and spacious and has English tv which was great for our 6 year old.
The garden was large with a bbq and sun loungers and a nice outdoor eating area.
The pool area was fabulous, it was large and safe and had very comfortable sun loungers 👌
The photos just don’t do it justice in my opinion, it beat all our expectations and we were very sad to go home.
If you book this gite, I can guarantee you will love it 😍 happy holidays xx

Very accommodating hosts, friendly but not overbearing and they recommended some lovely restaurants. Tony and Carol went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and our stay was comfortable. We enjoyed the heated pool, and eating out on the decking. We would certainly recommend this property.
