There is unlimited free Wi-Fi (who can live without it these days?!). Outside, there is a decked area and private garden with BBQ & table & chairs. Beyond the back garden you’ll find our glorious 10mx5m heated pool, and just beyond this is the play area for children, then over an acre of open garden for your children to play (if you can drag them out of the pool!!). As well as swings and trampolines, we provide a sports net and lots of racquets & balls for anyone who’s feeling energetic, and table football & table tennis in the shade for those who aren't! Because we’re the last property on the lane, there are no passing cars (just the occasional tractor), and we’re surrounded by fields of sunflowers or maize and an oak wood. Our location is peaceful and rural, with a pork butcher and cognac & pineau distillery within walking distance, a bakery, a general store and a seasonal al-fresco restaurant in a village 4 miles away, and a different restaurant in a village 3 miles away. With over ten years’ experience of welcoming guests to our holiday rental properties here, we can offer lots of help & advice and to help you plan your days out, we have prepared a book of our own recommendations of where to go & what to see, and how best to enjoy this beautiful area, depending on what kind of day out takes your fancy. Because we live on site, we’re usually on hand if you need us for any kind of advice, and we have teenage daughters who are only too happy to offer their babysitting services for a small fee, should you fancy an adults-only evening (or daytime!!). Further details indoors We pride ourselves that our gîtes are well-equipped - lots of people who stay with us love to cook and enjoy the local food, and we make sure that the kitchen is set up in a way that helps this be a pleasure not a chore. All bed- and household- linen and towels are provided, as well as a hairdryer, UK plug adapters, bedroom fans, full length mirror, DVD player & UK freeview TV, iron & ironing board, alarm clock, a laundry ball which replaces detergent in most washes and cool box & cooling blocks for picnics. Further details outdoors An important part of your gîte holiday is relaxation & fun, and our 600 square-metre pool area contains our octagonal 10 x 5 metre pool, heated from May to September, and plenty of sun loungers, tables, and chairs, so that you can relax any way you like. The pool is in full sun for much of the day so you'll also find pleasant shady areas to keep cool. The view from the pool area is across our garden to the surrounding farmland, and rolling hills, without another house in sight.More

Interaction with guests
We're here on site to answer any questions you might have, and have lived here for many years as our girls have grown up, so we know the area well, both as a couple and as a family. We'll be here when you arrive, and on hand when you need us, but won't intrude on your holiday when you don't need any help from us!
