About this property

Spacious Holiday Home with Private Pool. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

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.

The Owner Recommends

Great day out

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.

Market not to be missed

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.

Kayaking on the river

Hire a kayak or canoe and spend the afternoon on the river. See the beautiful countryside and wildlife from a different angle.

Countryside trails

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.

Lovely local restaurants

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.
