Extra Information

Other information As this is a cluster property, not all the equipment is in all the gites all the time. It is therefore important that the items you require are requested on your booking form before arrival.

The pool, which is shared with the guests at L’Amandier, and the hosts, has a hard cover which is opened about 9am and closed at the end of the day by the host. During the day there are motion sensor alarms around the pool which can be turned off when the pool is in use but at other times sound very loudly to let you know someone has broken the beam into the pool area. The swimming Pool is open and heated from Mid April until the end of September (NB as the nights get cooler it does not hold the high summer temperatures).

Check-in is after 4pm
Check out is before 10am

Indoors & Outdoors

Indoors

Simplicity, quality and style are the keys to this beautifully renovated bakery. The open-plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen mean that this area is spacious and easy to use, while the underfloor heating in the early spring and autumn gives children a toasty surface on which to play

  • 2 bedrooms with en suite shower rooms sleeping up to 4, with room for 2 additional cots
  • Open plan kitchen and living room
  • Wi-Fi and UK satellite television are available
  • Views through the French doors out over the fields

Parent point:

A door leads from the kitchen/dining area directly to the pool but has a key code on it for safety.

Outdoors

Le Fourneau is all about the outside space. Immediately outside your gite you there is a pretty terrace – perfect for BBQs, and the shower room next to it means your little splashers can easily be washed off before going into the house.

Venture beyond your pretty BBQ terrace and you will find 6.5 acres just waiting for explorers and endless games of hide and seek.

Children will love the climbing frame and swing and slide whilst everyone will enjoy the ping-pong table, badminton and football net that you will find in this wonderful garden. 

The large salt water swimming pool is great for everyone from baby to granny! The sunny terraces for sunbathing, plenty of pool toys, a great shallow end with Roman steps for the little ones, plus a proper 'deep' end for diving will make it hard for everyone to tear themselves away from hours of splashing fun.

 At the end of the day, enjoy a sundowner in the pergola and take in the view.

Parent Points:

  • A fence and electric gates prevent access from the lane but this 6.5 acre garden is not entirely enclosed.
  • The pool, which is shared with the guests at L’Amandier, and the hosts, has a hard cover which is opened about 9am and closed at the end of the day by the host. During the day there are motion sensor alarms around the pool which can be turned off when the pool is in use but at other times sound very loudly to let you know someone has broken the beam into the pool area.
  • There are plenty of places for little ones to wander off and explore so please keep an eye on your little ones
