    Indoors & Outdoors

    Le Potager is a characterful gite with double height ceilings as you walk in and large picture window looking over the courtyard.

    • Open plan kitchen/dining/living space with a bright airy and modern feel
    • Modern kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine
    • Ground floor family bathroom
    • Upstairs double bedroom
    • Twin bedroom
    • Bunk room
    • Family shower room
    • WiFi included

    One of the sofas in the living area can be converted in to a sofa bed.

    Outside this gite is a pretty fenced garden, plenty of shady play space under the trees and also a patio for al fresco dining on the long balmy evenings. You can enjoy a barbecue, having purchased some tasty ingredients at the local markets; not forgetting to add a handful of herbs from your own herb garden. Pretty bordered paths lead you to the rest of the extensive gardens and play areas.

    The enclosed grounds provide plenty of space for everyone.  The highlight of which is the new swimming pool, where hours of splashing fun are guaranteed, all safely fenced for peace of mind.

    In various parts of the gardens you will find a range of games and play areas for all: boules courts, table football, table tennis, swings and slides, and open areas of grass for various ball games. 

    L'Ancienne Ferme has both adult bikes, with helmets and baby seat or baby trailer, and children's bikes (with helmets) available, for those wanting to take one of the many routes direct from the property and take a quick trip to the local village to get those fresh croissants for breakfast.

    The cluster has a kitchen garden and the owners are happy to share the fruits and vegetables of their labours with their guests. You can't get much fresher than that! It is the beautiful gardens that really make L'Ancienne Ferme a magical picturesque place. You half expect to find an artist or writer pondering under one of the many trees, or for the little ones Peter Rabbit munching in the kitchen garden.

    What's Around?

    Set in beautiful countryside, surrounded by farm and woodland, there are plenty of lovely walks direct from the property. A 15-20 minute walk (1km) will take you to the local village, where there is a local shop that stocks baker's bread and croissants; the journey there is along quiet country lanes, although there are no pavements, just grass verges. 

    A stunning, gentle sandy beach is just 35 minutes drive away; it's very child friendly and many of the coves have small cafes. There are plenty more beaches within easy reach up and down the coast and for a great day out you can drive to Royan and La Rochelle for some busier seaside activities and great shopping.

    For an energetic wet and wild day out with a tropical theme, take your costumes and towels to Antilles de Jonzac, a huge water park with lagoons, slides, waves, and for those of you with a few moments to spare take advantage of the spa facilities for a bit of well deserved pampering.

    If you fancy a bit more hustle and bustle the famous town of Cognac is just 45 minutes away. Here you will find plenty of restaurants, shops and of course all of the world famous Cognac houses, many of which are open to the public and offer guided tours around their caves and distilleries. You could even participate in a tasting session.
