About this property

Sunny Gite for 6 with Covered Heated Pool . This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Fed up with city life? Need a base with peace and quiet, but with easy access to the best of France's Tourist Attractions?

Situated in a peaceful hidden valley Le Moulin de Bardéas is a comfortable well-equipped self-contained 3 star gite situated on the ground floor of a detached French farmhouse.

Set within a large tranquil secluded garden surrounded by farmland, the property has a heated pool within a Conservatory for your family to enjoy swimming whatever the weather.

Some of our guests spend their entire holiday on site relaxing in the warm pool, walking or cycling the local lanes and sitting in the sun. Enjoying a lovely family holiday. Yet just over an hour away are the unmissable Puy du Fou and Futuroscope, the Chateaux of the Loire Valley, and the cities of Poitier, Nantes and Niort. The gorgeous Atlantic coast is less than 2 hours away.

We have 13 acres of fields to explore and enjoy. The river runs just below the gite and is available for fishing, paddling or just peaceful contemplation. The land is maintained to encourage wildlife and there are numerous birds such as Kingfishers, Golden Oriole and Hoopooe to be seen, as well as butterflies and wild flowers. There is a large fully fenced garden in front of the gite with lots and lots of room for dogs and children to run.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Nicola Addington-Hall

In 2013 my husband David and I decided to leave our busy life in the UK and to follow our dream and start a new life in France. We settled in the tranquil and rural Deux Sevres. We now run 2 gites and really enjoy our new lives. I spend my life painting, gardening and just enjoying the atmosphere.
