About this property

Comfortable Well-equipped, Heated-Pool, Tennis Court. This villa is in a rural setting.

The Farmhouse (Les Deux Chenes) is a beautiful, comfortable, spacious and exceptionally well-equipped property in a very rural location - a small hamlet surrounded by arable farming and vineyards. This property is ideally suited to families or groups of adults to enjoy an active or inactive holiday.

The farmhouse offers comfortable living with plenty of space inside and out and each bedroom has its own shower, washhand basin and toilet. Any bedding arrangements can be accommodated in two of the bedrooms as each has zip-link beds providing twin single beds or one superking double bed. The third bedroom has a 4'6" double bed.

On-site activities include tennis, a heated swimming pool (10m x 5m), badminton and a Games room for table-tennis and darts. Inside the gite we provide games, dvds and a large flat-screen tv as well as wi-fi. There are also 2 sitting rooms, each with UK tv, often serving as a tv room and a reading/chatting room.

Local attractions include the conservation zoo at Doue-La-Fontaine, famous chateaux, Puy du Fou, Futuroscope, Terra Botanica, wine tasting, good restaurants, good cycling and much more.

You will be the only guests at the property but the English owner lives in a separate detached cottage on the site and, whilst never imposing on your privacy, is always happy to offer advice and answer questions to help you make the most of your stay. The owner never tries to solicit reviews from guests because he assumes the last thing you want to do when you return home is to spend your valuable time promoting someone else's property because you reluctantly promised the persistent property owner you would. However, if you don't consider any property without a review then please check out the web-link below and read the article by Travel journalist Simon Heyes who, with his group of friends, stayed at Les Deux Chenes in May 2018.

Respectfully, guests are asked not to play music outdoors (or which is audible outdoors) and to endeavour to preserve what is normally a very tranquil rural environment as a courtesy to neighbours within this very small hamlet. For those groups, families or individuals who like to party on holiday, or who tend to simply be loud or noisy, then, regrettably, this property would not be suitable. Similarly, as swimming pools are the most common cause of noise nuisance between neighbours in France, we gratefully ask guests to respect that the pool is available for swimming and quiet leisure only.

The owner always very much welcomes the opportunity to discuss with you your holiday needs and expectations before you book.

Thank you
