About this property

Girardiere 3 Gite's for Holiday Rental. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

La Girardiere is a 19th century stone built farmhouse, which has been tastefully renovated and converted into 3 spacious gites, offering you charm, tradition and comfort. Set in its own 5 acres of land and surrounded by beautiful countryside with tracks and trails for walking and cycling accessible from your gite door. It has its own swimming pool, which is fenced and alarmed, a children's play area and boules pitch.

Le Charme is one of 3 gites, well equipped and has its own terrace and barbecue. The barn is a good place to meet up for a glass of wine and watch the sun go down or make use of the gas barbecue, hotplate and chip fryer or play table tennis or table football.

La Girardiere's gites are nestled in the Valley of the l'Autize river. It is within easy reach of many historic sites as well as restaurants, shops, markets, golf, tennis, fishing, horse riding, and only one hour away from the coast.

We are close by The Marais Poitevin, or Venice Vert is a network of canals, and home to many wild flowers and marshland birds. There are places to rent punts with or without guides and bikes, or just walk along the edge of the canals on the numerous marked routes. The landscape changes as you get to Mervent, as it is heavily forested where you can walk, cycle on the VTT trails (mountain bike tracks), hire canoes, pedalos or sailboats for use on the lake. There is forest climbing park, and "Parc de Pierre Brun" which is another activity park for children up to the age of about 10 years. Mervent also has a Zoo.

About an hour away are the theme parks Futuroscope and the Puy du Fou the historic port of la Rochelle, Ile de Re.

The owners are on site to assist you when required and there is access to wi-fi for your convenience.
