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 before arrival so that the items can be placed in your gite prior to arrival.

The pool, which is shared with the guests at Le Fourneau, 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

Many of the farm's original features (beams, stonewalls and fireplaces) have been retained here and brought it back to life using a fantastic mix of colours and high quality furnishings. There is great sense of space and style, yet still very homely and comfortable.

  • 5 bedrooms: 2 super-king size doubles on the ground floor, both with en suite shower rooms and 3 twins (which can be made in to doubles) on the first floor with a shared family bathroom, sleeping up to 10 plus 3 infants in cots
  • The sofa in the mezzanine TV room can be made into 2 additional single beds
  • 2 living rooms with comfy sofas, TVs and a wood burner downstairs for cooler evenings
  • Spacious well equipped kitchen with an AGA 6:4 conventional cooker and large dining table
  • WFii and UK satellite TV are available
  • Childrens’ DVDs and plenty of board games, indoor toys and children’s books

Parent Points

  • There are low windows in all the rooms upstairs (floor level) - they have locks, but parents should be aware of the dangers should they want to open these windows.
  • There is a metal bar running across the mezzanine area (a wall tie) which is currently decorated with flags. This is probably of no danger to children, however parents may need to be warned of the risk of banging their heads on it!

Outdoors

Right outside your house you’ll find a pretty terrace with a BBQ and chairs and tables – perfect for when the children have gone to bed.

If you like wide open spaces then you'll love the whole feel of L'Amandier and its beautiful views (rolling countryside topped off with a restored windmill on the hill above the house). Just wonderful in the summer with the fields full of sunflowers.

Leave your terrace and you’ll find 6.5 acres of parkland and landscaped gardens, with open lawned areas for outdoor games (Climbing frame with slide and swing, badminton, table tennis, football), a mix of mature and newer trees for shady play, together with a fully fenced pond for pond dipping fun.

The large salt-water pool (heated April to October) is great for everyone from baby to granny! It has sunny terraces for sunbathing, a great shallow end with Roman steps for the little ones, plus a proper 'deep' end for diving. 

At the end of the day, while little explorers are playing, enjoy a glass of wine in the pergola and enjoy the views.

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

What's Around?

  • Borrow some of the bikes from the gites and head straight out to explore this beautiful countryside. Take a picnic make it a whole day out.
  • The nearest town, Tombeboeuf, is only a short drive away where you can find a boulangerie, general store, good restaurant.
  • Little children will love the farm animal centre only a 10 minute drive away.
  • The Lot is a great river to explore by canoe or kayak. 
  • Splash around at the fenced off river beach - the imported sand gives you plenty of sancastle fun.
  • The many local markets, vineyards (of which there are plenty!) and restaurants will ensure that you are never far away from fine food and fine wine!
  • Play golf at the local course in Tombeboeuf.
