Kitchen & Dining Area
Fully equipped kitchen
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.

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.
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.
