About this property

Two Bed, Open Plan Loft Living. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Here at Les Hirondelles Gites, we have created a tranquil haven for couples wanting to get away from it all and experience real rural France.

The Hayloft is a genuine converted space that formed the storage for hay in the original barn.
It is accessed via a spiral staircase, so not suitable for those with mobility issues.
At the top of the staircase it opens out onto a spectacular open plan living, dining and kitchen area which has a mix of traditional features, contemporary furnishings and polished wood floors throughout.
It has flat screen tv with English freeview channels, dvd player and a cd player incorporating an iPod dock. A new addition is a blue-tooth speaker which can be used both inside and outdoors.
The kitchen is well equipped with a full sized gas cooker, dishwasher, undercounter fridge with icebox, microwave and sufficient tableware and cooking utensils.
There are 2 bedrooms, a twin and double, and a shower-room
Both bedrooms have a wardrobe and storage areas, mirrors and towel holders.

There is another sister gite on this side, The Stables, so the pool will be shared if the other gite is occupied at the same time of your visit.

Visitor suitability

Information about any additional facilities

A washer is available for a nominal fee, which covers all washing tabs.

Internet Access: As this is rural France our internet connection speed does not reflect the experience you could ordinarily expect at home. We have found that most mobile packages provide a faster connection speed. Therefore since the removal of EU data roaming charges we no longer offer an internet access facility on-site. We hope to re-introduce this facility in the future when the national scheme to improve connection speeds is rolled out.

The tv's have HDMI ports, should you wish to watch any previously downloaded material.

Year property purchased 2014
Why this location? Beautiful rural location, peace and quiet yet near to all airports, major towns for shopping and life if required.
Unique benefits of property Les Hirondelles according to our visitors is the most perfect place to relax and unwind. Set in fields of sunflowers and beautiful blue skies, the nights are warm to sit out and just listen to nature whilst enjoying a bbq and glass of wine. De-stress here...

The Owner Recommends


Le Compostelle; a great little restaurant set in Tusson which is perfect for Menu de Jour, 3 courses for 16euros... Visit their Cave next door for fantastic Minervois wine at a good price.


Carrefore Contact in Aigre has the best butchery department around.. Also fantastic for a good selection of wines at very reasonable prices. Unusual wines that you wont see in the bigger supermarkets.
