A newly refurbished self-catering gîte in rural France at the head of the beautiful Gatine valley. Ideal any season for walking, cycling or simply taking time out.

The space

Looking for a beautiful bolthole where you can escape the hassles of everyday life? Le Petit Toit is a lovingly restored gite for two in the grounds of the 15th century La Charpenterie.

The exposed stone wall in the spacious bedroom and the tiled floors, coupled with a beautiful antique bed and other original pieces, mean that the gite retains its old-fashioned charm whilst the well-equipped modern kitchen area and stylish shower room provide every facility you might need for a relaxing holiday.
If you have special requirements or are look for something in particular, get in touch and we will do our best to help.

Guest access

The gîte has its own patio and barbecue area with views across local fields. You can be completely independent but don't forget to ask if there's anything we can help you with.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to let you do your own thing and come and go as you please. But we're on hand if the need arises.

Other things to note

The log burner will ensure the gite is cozy on a cool evening whilst on a Summer day, the rear opens onto a patio area where you can sip your early morning coffee as you plan your day or spend the evening stargazing over a glass of wine.
The night skies are wonderfully dark here and if walking’s your thing, head out of La Charpenterie onto miles of country lanes passing fields of sunflowers.

Note that this is a rural setting which is very peaceful but as you'd expect it experiences agricultural activity from time to time.

I really enjoyed my stay! The place was beautiful and secluded, ideal for a quiet getaway. Helen was the perfect host, she left me some delicious food in the kitchen and lent me a bicycle to get around the local villages.

We had a wonderfull time at Le petit Toit. It is a really peacefull and quiet area, where you can relax and have a really nice vacation! We had a couple beautifull bikerides, and also visited Partenay, the zoo and the swimmingpool. All less than an hour away. Helen & Steve are perfect hosts and they took care of everything we needed. Very happy that with our ten day stay :)

The accommodation was exactly as described and very clean. The area is very quite and good for relaxing on the terrace. Helen is a great host, very friendly and kind and has a good sense of humor. She gave us a warm welcome and surprised us with fruits of her garden. We enjoyed our stay – thanks for such a great time.

L'accueil a été extraordinaire. Les petites attentions de notre hôte ont perfectionné notre séjour. Le gîte est dans un cadre calme, nature, propice au ressourcement. En même temps quelques heures de voiture et nous étions en Bretagne ou à la mer. Nous recommandons vraiment ce lieu à toute personne à la recherche d'un cocon. Merci pour cette belle expérience !

I love to cook, host people and raise animals. I'm passionate about La Charpenterie where we have opportunity to do all three! My French is not so good yet but we're working on it.
