Lezay, Deux-Sevres, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
The old farmworkers cottage has been tastefully renovated to provide an open plan kitchen/lounge and dining area on the ground floor. The original stone fireplace features a wood-burning stove. Cosy sofas provide relaxed seating in the lounge, maybe to watch a DVD or listen to some music. A dining table and chairs fit nicely by the window for you to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Alternatively, you can dine al fresco in the garden at the side of the cottage and sample the excellent local food and wine.<BR>The main attraction is the peace and tranquility of the surroundings which enable you to de-stress, relax and re-charge your batteries. SPECIAL DEAL IF YOU BOOK BOTH OUR GITES AT THE SAME TIME - SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR DETAILS.
