Available from May 2016. Country home with a pool in a rural community, close to all amenities and walking distance to a bakery. Excellent walking, cycling and canoeing area. Many attractions such as Futuroscope, La Niort, Rochelle and Angouleme.
The Gite consists of 3 double bedrooms and one single, living room and fully equipped kitchen. There is a patio just outside the living room with a covered area to the side of the barn.
The pool is 30 yards from the house with pool house offers a small kitchen with a fridge to keep everything cold. There is also a covered area to get out of the sun when you need to and a solar shower to clean up after your sunbathing.

Interaction with guests
Guests will have access to the pool areas, the vegetable gardens and use of the bicycles. The owners will be in the property next door. The owners will host BBQ's once a week, at an extra charge.
Other things to note
The area is generally a quiet hamlet but with shops within 4 Km from the house. There is a bread shop within walking distance from the house open every day between 10:00 and 12:00, selling a range of bread, baguettes etc, but is closed on a Monday.
Guests are expected to respect the property and the other residents nearby, this is a farming community. We do have WiFi, however, we would request that you do not download movies and take over all the bandwidth. We do have UK satellite TV, as well as French TV.
We request that the pool area is kept clean and all guests are requested to keep all glass products away from the pool, in case of accidents. Plastic wine goblets, cups etc will be provided in the pool house. We do encourage use of the BBQ and eating at the pool patio. We do request that no food is eaten in the pool.
We are a couple from Berkshire, UK and moved here in December 2015 with the intention to de-stress and run our own business.
We have re-built the gite and the are in the process of re-designing the gardens (3 acres). Please do not worry there will be no work while we have guests.
We are very relaxed and like to meet new people. We like to travel and once we have been established in France we will be adding a motor home to our stable so we can travel across more of Europe than we have ever travelled across.
