Kitchen & Dining Area

This recently renovated barn in our little hamlet of Chez Clion with its own garden provides the ideal location for a totally relaxing break or for exploring the idyllic countryside with its charming village locale. ... Full Property Description

Comfortable, well appointed accomodation for four adults and up to two children. The sleeping arrangements comprise a double bedroom, double sofa bed, cot and a fold up bed which will suit child/small adult. The family bathroom has a shower over the tub and we can also provide a baby bath and booster seat. As the lounge area is on the upper floor a stair gate is also available if required. The dining area is adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen. There is a small private garden equipped with garden furniture and a barbecue. We have installed a new pool at the rear of the property, so you can cool off on those hot sunny afternoons and stretch out under a tree for a snooze. We shall be happy to organise a welcome pack of breakfast basics and a meal for late arrivers. If you don't have time to shop send us a list and we will get in some supplies for you. We are situated in a small hamlet set in gently rolling countryside threaded with little lanes and fascinating winding tracks. Little or no traffic, other than the occasional tractor, goes by and the alarm clock is the cockerel across the valley. The night sky is dense with stars as we don't suffer from light pollution here. If you fancy a bit of exploration we are ideally situated for a renowned monkey reserve, Futuroscope in Poitiers, charming historic villages, Cognac with its distilleries, the beach and harbour at La Rochelle and much much more. Locally there are parks, a swimming pool and if you fancy some time on the quiet Charente river then why not try canoeing and see the countryside from a different perspective. There are so many restaurants to try - from the local cafe offering a three course set meal plus wine for about 12 euros per head to the Michelin starred eaterie in a nearby town - booking recommended. Of course you can always have takeaway pizza, there is a huge range of cooked meats and salads available from the supermarket, and you have access to a barbecue in the garden....hopefully something to tickle all the tastebuds.

Local Activities

Canoeing, Cycling, Tennis, Walking,

Walking is just a question of going down the lane and starting your exploration of this delightful countryside, no specialist training required and no cost involved. Canoeing can be arranged at a small town some 20 minutes car drive away, It is available during July and August and some tuition is on offer but would need to be investigated further (this can be done on your behalf). Tennis and swimming are catered for in the town about 15 minutes drive distant and there are bike hire facilities in the area. All costs are modest.
If you prefer to stick closer to home there is an unheated plunge pool in the garden (usually warm enough in July/August and early September) or if you don't mind a short drive there is a delightful park area nearby with waterfowl, lovely walks and plenty of space for children to run and play and a restaurant for that essential afternoon aperitif in the sunshine.
For history buffs and those anxious to capture some memories on camera there are picturesque villages with their ancient churches and narrow winding streetsand there is a glorious chateau at Le Rochefoucauld. If you are prepared to drive for about an hour you can experience some French naval history at Rochefort where you can view the enormously long "ropery" and see the reconstruction of the vessel Hermonie which took Lafayette to the United States where he subsequently held a position of authority under President George Washington.
There are chateaux to view and and loads of other places of interest to capture the imagination.

For adults and older children there is the amazing Futuroscope experience at nearby Poitiers. It is easy to spend a whole day absorbed in this moving image theme park with its 3D cinemas and rides which simulate actual sensations with moving seats and realistic sound effects.

A not to be missed visit is one to the Monkey Valley (just 30 minutes away) where you can get up close and personal with smaller primates and watch them being fed. The larger monkeys are kept safely at a distance. Younger children seem to love this place as it does give the opportunity to see wildlife roaming free. There is also a small domestic petting zoo and a great adventure playground.

Cleaning Services / Towels and Linen

All bed linens and tea towels are provided. Visitors are requested to bring their own towels. Linen is changed weekly and the property is cleaned on changeover days or weekly if a longer stay is booked. (additional cleaning will be undertaken if requested).

We stayed at many different gites and bed and breakfast guesthouses during our honeymoon trip but you gave us by far the warmest welcome. We had a lovely time and were so comfortable it was like being at home. - Mrs and Mrs Craig Marshall - Minneapolis
