La Rose  

This was apparently a dwelling at some time, perhaps for farm workers or the farmer's extended family. On the old deeds it is described as a cuisine or kitchen and as it has a large old stone fireplace it is possible it was some sort of smoking or curing room. The gite was refurbished over the 2015/2016 winter with a new kitchen and bathroom and new insulation for winter use. The ground floor has terracotta tiles which keep the temperature down in the summer and the original stone fireplace and chimney has a log burning stove for the cooler autumn and spring evenings and the winter chill so this really is suitable for use at any time of year.

Upstairs there is a new bath with shower, basin and WC in the new bathrooom. Next door is a large bedroom with exposed floorboards, built-in wardrobe, chest of drawers and a four poster bed. The bedroom is spacious enough for a cot which we can supply at no extra charge. Outside is a patio with dining furniture and barbecue and privacy is afforded by fencing, trellis and climbing plants.

In general

The 3 self catering gites have been created with a sympathetic renovation of the ancient barn which was originally in four separate parts.


As a result the layout has largely been dictated by the thick stone internal walls. To maintain the traditional rustic feel of the barn, we have used as many reclaimed materials, local oak and limestone as possible.

All done to offer you that authentic self catering holiday in France you have been looking for!

There are tiled floors throughout the ground floors that help keep the interior cool in the hot summer. There are fitted kitchen units with stainless steel 1 and a 1/2 bowl sink, fridge, washing machine, microwave, electric kettle and toaster and all crockery, cutlery, glassware, pans, ovenware and kitchen tools sufficient to whip up a gourmet meal. The 1 bed has a gas cooker. If there is any item you need that isnít already provided we are on hand and happy to respond to any reasonable requests.


We have furnished our gites in a traditional style wherever possible and have tried to cater for all types and sizes of groups but we have spare items of furniture available should you need something extra. We also have travel cots, high chairs and stair gates but please let us have your requirements in advance so we can ensure availability.


In each lounge area we have provided a television with UK Freesat channels and DVD/CD player, comfortable sofas, easy chairs, rugs, occasional tables and bookcases with a decent supply and variety of books from the many we have gathered over the years.
