Traditional French Farmhouse with a Heated Swimming Pool In Deux Sevres

La Chapelle Gites consists of a 4 bedroom Farmhouse that sleeps up to 8 and an adjoining Cottage (please contact owners directly). The property is ideal for families with children of all ages as it is fitted with a stairgate and a cot and highchair are available on request at no extra cost. The holiday home is in La Chapelle, a peaceful rural hamlet away from it all but yet ideally situated between the small market towns of Sauzé Vaussais and Chef Boutonne. This is the ideal location to explore Deux Sèvres.

The child friendly gardens and fenced heated pool are to the rear (pool normally open May-Sept) and ample off-road parking to the front. Our peaceful rural location is truly away from it all, superb for walking and cycling with fields of sunflowers and a wide variety of birds and wildlife. Locally there are some excellent inexpensive restaurants with local specialities. The area has many rivers, lakes, chateaux and Roman churches. The larger towns of Poitiers, Niort and Angouleme, all good for shopping and days out, are all around 40 minutes away. The picturesque Marais Poiteven, the Green Venice of France, with its network of canals ideal for boating and sightseeing is also within easy distance. Over on the coast, around an hours drive away, are the famous Atlantic resorts of La Rochelle, Isle de Re, Royan and the Isle d'Oleron, famed as the prettiest and most traditional resorts with sandy beaches.

The Farmhouse is a spacious 4 bedroom property, sleeping up to 8 people. There is an en suite shower room with the master bedroom and also a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a large double bed and vaulted ceiling. There is one other large double bedroom and two twin rooms with full size single beds. This is ideal for the larger family. The spacious lounge has 2 large sofas, tv with some English channels, dvd and a large Charentaise fireplace with woodburner. Wood can be provided at cost. The large dining room has a table that easily seats 8 people, side board and a large Charentaise fireplace with a woodburner. French doors lead onto the rear garden. The well equipped kitchen has a gas hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge with a freezer compartment, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, an iron and ironing board.

The property has its own private outdoor dining area with bbq, table and chairs and gazebo. These lead on to the shared gardens and pool area. The large, well established garden is surrounded by fields and woodland. The heated pool measures 12 x 6m (open May-Sept), is fenced and has an alarm to conform to EU French legislation, there is also a large sun terrace around the pool amply supplied with sunbeds. In the garden is a large children's play frame and a trampoline with safety a net.
