The Gites & Gardens

We offer two adjacent gites enabling us to cater for 8 people, great for those wishing to have a peaceful vacation with extended family or friends.  Enjoy your holiday spending quality time together, sightseeing or simply relaxing by the local lake, followed by wonderfully sociable BBQ’s in the evening; then finally, kick off your shoes and retire to your own, personal space at the end of the day.

La Haute gite even considers small pets if you are wishing to travel with your furry companion.

Classified accommodations

We hope that our two super gites offer you something a little different, with all the comforts you would expect and hopefully a little more.  Each is finished to a very high standard, and have been restored in a sympathetic caring fashion, retaining many of the original features but with a contemporary twist. Your beds will be made with crisply ironed linens and there will be fluffy towels provided for your use.

Both gites have electric radiators and log burners.

The main garden is laid mainly to lawn, with a selection of toys provided for our younger guests; there is also table-tennis, soft-archery, badminton and boules to be enjoyed by those of all ages! The garden has a couple of picnic tables with umbrellas, sun-loungers, chairs, a ‘retro’ swing chair and several benches so that you can catch the sun or shade as you choose.
