Swimming Pool NEW 2012 Heated

Our private, 10 metre by 5 metre heated swimming pool is surrounded by an ample terrace, providing an ideal spot for you to relax, soak up the sun then cool off with a refreshing dip

Also provided are sun loungers, large parasols and a shaded cabana for your comfort.

The pool is also fenced for the security of you and your family. Although the pool has a heat pump we cannot guarantee that the pool will be open until at least mid May and to around the end of September, it does depend on the weather


La Vigne and Le Poirier come with their own private patio areas and over 1 acre of landscaped gardens. Le Tilleul has an outside dining area set in the courtyard. As well as the communal heated swimming pool, all gites will also benefit from 3 acres of meadow. Also in the grounds there are Volleyball/Badminton facilities and a petanque alley.
