Our two gites ' The Old Farmhouse and The Stables' at Les Portes Vertes have been lovingly restored over the last few years providing quality accommodation without loosing their character. Each gite has an abundance of charm with exposed beams and mellow yellow stone walls. On the ground floor you can find the open plan kitchen and living room with two double external doors; one of which opens out onto the private terrace. The terrace is equipped with a gas BBQ and patio table and chairs along with relaxing countryside views. A small hallway leads off of the kitchen/living room to the shower room (includes wash basin and WC) and the downstairs bedroom with 3 single beds. All of which have ceramic tiled floors – cool underfoot on the hot summer days. The living room includes Freesat TV, DVD player, a selection of DVDs and a Bluetooth iPod docking station and relaxing 3 and 2 seater sofas. There is also a wood burner and a basket of logs is included for your use. The kitchen was installed in spring 2017 and includes integrated appliances, oven, ceramic hob and microwave. This has been completed to a high standard and includes a Washing Machine, Dishwasher and Fridge-Freezer along with a Krups coffee machine (we provide some capsules to make sure you have that fix if you haven’t been shopping before you arrive). Stairs in the kitchen/living room lead to the master bedroom, which includes a wrought iron style super king sized bed, a walk in wardrobe, exposed beams and skylight. All rooms have exposed stone walls and beams providing rural charm and period character whilst the décor and facilities provide a modern (including Wi-fi) convenient ‘home from home’ experience; providing the ideal setting for a relaxing holiday. The heated pool – shared with the occupants of our other gite The Farmhouse – includes a shallow end, inflatables and a sun terrace equipped with sun loungers for you to soak up the sun. The hanger provides a welcome shaded area for socializing, al fresco dining or just to relax out of the sun. It is equipped with plenty of seating and all the outdoor games can be found there too – badminton, boules, croquet etc. Les Portes Vertes is a lovely place to spend your holiday relaxing taking in the views, or take in the sights and sounds of the nearby cities of Poitiers, Niort, Angouleme or Cognac, all within easy driving distance. Talking of driving there is a golf course not far away. If after all that you still have energy then there are lots of local markets to visit and not forgetting the beach at La Rochelle and a must visit to the Valley of the Monkeys. For larger groups see our other listing for The Farmhouse which sleeps 8. For long term or out of season (e.g. Christmas) rentals please send us a message for a personalised quote. Located in a quite picturesque setting but only 8 mins from a town for all your daily requirements.
