This location has multiple holiday properties
Our freshly enlarged Cognac gite is situated to the rear of the main building and so has a quieter feel than our other gites. Perfect for a family who wants the facilities of what multiple gites gives but who want their privacy as well. There is the choice to open up the internal doors so it opens up with our larger Mulsanne gite and offers the chance to spend a holiday with other members of your family group.
The interior is well laid out with a tasteful use of quality furniture.Outside, Cognac gite has its own terrace with a table and 4 chairs. We've added a large sun shade overhead that can be retracted if not required.

Our main 10 x 5m salt water pool has a great water slide as well. The 6 seater hot tub will tempt you with your glass of bubbly.
The second pool that we have is heated to 30 degrees for 8 months of the year and is only for babies and young children. It only has a depth of 60cm so just right for spending time with your little ones.
The kitchen has all that you need whilst spending time on holiday with your family. We've added a large fridge, separate freezer, dishwasher, double oven and ceramic hob. Just around the corner outside you'll find a large washing machine a tumble dryer.
In the cupboards you'll find plenty off cookwares, cutlery and other pretty handy stuff. We haven't missed that young children and babies require non breakable items so we've added these as well. They may need a high chair or booster seat.. well we have these as well!

We are a family of 4 who have lived in this beautiful area of France for 14 years. In fact both of our daughters were born in France and attend local schools. For Sara and myself moving to France from the UK and creating our family home and 3 beautiful gites was indeed the best move that we could have done.
