Situated in the Poitou-Charentes region of France, this gîte offers the ideal location to explore some of the best attractions in the Vienne and beyond.
Renovated from an old barn, the gîte offers extremely spacious accommodation. With exposed beams, tiled floor and a light, airy feel throughout, the gîte has been finished to a high standard with all the equipment you would expect to find in a holiday rental of this quality.
Two double and one twin bedroom (all en suite), a large 110m2 open plan sitting/kitchen/dining area, wi-fi and exclusive use of a solar-heated swimming pool, it is the perfect holiday rental for families, couples or friends.
The gîte is in a beautiful rural location only a couple of miles from the small town of St Savin, which is famous for its impressive Abbey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983.
There are many tourist attractions within easy reach and the surrounding countryside has miles of off-road tracks for walking or cycling, nature reserves for bird-watching, and rivers for fishing and canoeing.
There is a modern fitted kitchen with range cooker, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and a large central island unit.
The dining table seats 6 comfortably and a high chair can be provided upon request.
Three large, 3-seater sofas provide a comfortable seating area. There is Freesat (English) television, wi-fi, a dvd player and a range of dvds, as well as a selection of books and boardgames.

Just north of Poitiers is the Futuroscope theme park. The site (131 acres) is packed full of animations, technology and multimedia experiences to provide an exciting day out for all the family.
The Chauvigny market on Saturday mornings is not to be missed. It is a typical French market where you can find almost anything. Fruit and vegetables, bread, fish, macarons, cheese, clothes, household items, plants and much more. Wander through at your leisure or sit in one of the nearby cafés and enjoy a coffee whilst people-watching.
Hire a kayak or canoe and spend the afternoon on the river. See the beautiful countryside and wildlife from a different angle.
This area is full of countryside trails which are ideal for walking or cycling. There are 100s of kilometres of off-road tracks which take you through the beautiful Vienne countryside. In July the fields are full of sunflowers. At all times of the year there is plenty of wildlife to be spotted - red squirrels, hares, deer, birds of prey.
There are many restaurants in the area which provide excellent value for money. Enjoy a lazy lunch on the terrace.
A brilliant Gite for my young family. Safe, private pool, always warm because of the cover, well laid out accommodation, with owners nearby if you need them for anything, but keep their distance if you don't. The location is rural, but only a 5 minute drive from St Savin village with 2 bakeries, supermarket and a couple of bars and restaurants and a UNESCO listed abbey. Loads of attractions nearby if you don't feel like relaxing by the pool. I never go back to the same place twice, but we did with this one!
Thoroughly enjoyed this stunning Gîte. It is comfortable, spacious, well equipped and in a beautiful location. The owners are friendly and considerate and there to greet us on arrival. The private pool was a welcome facility in such hot weather. We would recommend this property to those who just want to relax or want a mixture of relaxation and exploring the region. Would recommend visiting Poitier, Oradour Sur Glane and nearby St Savin. Would visit again.
One of the most beautiful houses we have stayed in. The owners, Sue and Adrian could not do enough for you, so helpful and lovely. The gite is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. Wonderful area. Would highly recommend to anyone, will definitely return. Thanks again
Beautifully converted barn. Spacious, comfortable, very well equipped. Stylish bedrooms and bathrooms. Plenty of seating areas outside and around pool. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Very quiet rural location. Would highly recommend.
