With its impressive lounge, well-equipped kitchen, separate dining room and beautiful patio, your family will really feel at home. Chestnut beams and floors, exposed stone walls and a woodburner complete this traditional country gîte. Connecting door to La Noisette.
Our prettiest gîte with typical blue shutters and private sunny patio, La Noix is perfect for young families. Our guests love the large, south-facing lounge with its huge comfy sofas and cosy fireplace.
Ideal for couples or families, La Noisette has a stunning double bedroom downstairs plus three single beds upstairs. With its traditional French furnishings and exposed stone walls, you will love this charming gîte. Connecting door to La Chataigne.
Bedrooms: 2 plus mezzanine
The gite and garden are excellent with great facilities for children too – the secure garden and gated pool were a godsend.
We have had a great week. The highlights have been the gite (everything we needed was here. We were able to relax as soon as we arrived) and the pool (it was great to lie on the sun beds). Would love to return.
La Noix is the ideal bolt hole for anyone who wants to get away from it all. This little gite is charming with a wood burning stove that staves off the chilly evenings (even in June 2013 when Europe had a particularly cold spell). The secure garden is ideal for young kids with its heated pool, swing, camp fire and boules to pass away summer evenings after dining alfresco on your own terrace with outdoor BBQ. Magical! Gill and Pat are wonderful hosts and have great suggestions on local sights and restaurants. Bikes are available to explore the surrounding area on the very safe and quiet back roads.
What a wrench to leave such a beautiful place. Had such a wonderful time – Gill and Pat have to be the best hosts ever! A bientot!
This is an absolutely beautiful house with exceptional attention to detail that makes a holiday a pleasure. Everything is tastefully done and the gite, pool and facilities are outstanding. For the last three years we have booked the next holiday on the first day of our holiday unable to resist the lure of this magical place and lovely part of the country. Pat and Gill are warm hosts without being intrusive and have organised some superb activities. They go out of their way to be helpful and provide lists of local markets and events so you benefit from their local knowledge. Couldn’t rate it more highly!
Fabulous Holiday. It was our third time and this time we were joined with our family and friends so it was the best so far. It has everything you are looking for on holiday. So much to do and such a wide variety. Gill and Pat are the hostesses with the mostesses. We have already booked again for next year.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday. You really have thought of everything. It really does feel like home.
Very spacious accommodation full of oak beams and granite. We were three generations staying in two of Gill & Pat’s gites with inter-connecting doors. The kitchen/diner table was big enough for 9 to sit at with a bit of help from the side board. The gardens are lovely and full of entertainment for the children, the pool being favourite and as we all know, if the children are happy everyone is happy. Thank you Gill & Pat for being so helpful we had a great time.
We have had a lovely family holiday here at Les Arbres. We have been in many gites over the years and this one is up there with the best. Thank you for creating a lovely home from home.
We stayed at La Chataigne, very spacious and well equipped. The BBQ and patio area we put to good use most days. The good weather I requested Gill somehow managed to pull off too. The garden (which is huge) and pool area are beautifully kept. Pat & Gill have a host of local restaurants to suggest. It must be hell having to go to check them all out. Although we only managed to eat out one night, perhaps sitting on the patio sampling the local wine looking at the stars made it too much effort to go out. To say that Pat & Gill are congenial hosts is an understatement, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely consider coming back and we have already told a host of people to check out the website.
We have had an excellent time here. The house has so much going for it – stacks of room, all the necessary amenities / resources and a fantastic setting in the secluded garden and swimming pool. All our family felt “at home” here.
We cannot rate La Noix highly enough. We have stayed in a number of properties and can honestly say that, within this budget range, La Noix has been the best. First impressions of a property are so important for setting the tone of the holiday and we felt La Noix was fresh, clean and had everything we needed (including reliable wifi!). We really felt as though Gill and Pat had thought about the sort of holiday experience we would want as opposed to just doing what was necessary to run the business; fresh cotton bed linen, nice towels and good quality poolside and outdoor furniture. The pool and the grounds are great and we made good use of them. There is enough space for privacy or to get to know the neighbours. Would love to go back one day.
Lovely weather, gite and hosts. It is good to find a gite with comfortable seating for the evening.
Thank you Gill and Pat for a perfect week. We couldn’t have asked for more. We hope to be back again.
We have had a lovely stay here at Les Arbres. The gite is gorgeous and Gill and Pat have been great. There is plenty to do in the garden and the pool is lovely. We wish we had booked for two weeks!
Had a fabulous time and booked again for next year. Gill and Pat have been so kind and attentive, they have a great set up here.
Lovely gite, very relaxing, did lots of cycling, beautiful countryside. Had a great week, loved the pool and massive garden.
What a wonderful stay; the perfect location to get away from it all and enjoy the simple things in life. The gites are very clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished with WIFI to stay connected. The kitchens are well equipped and stone BBQs on the patio area offer an easy way to cook some of the delicious local produce from the markets while enjoying a glass on wine in the evening. There is plenty to do without even getting into the car including the pool and the rest of the garden which is set up with a variety of games and activities for all ages. The bikes are perfect too with a variety of sizes to explore the beauty of the local countryside. Gill and Pat seem to have got the balance just right – friendly and accessible (being just across the lane) but give you lots of space! We will definitely be back!
There are too few superlatives to describe what a great holiday we had. We travelled with our children, their partners and our two young grandchildren and stayed in La Noisette and an adjoining gite – La Chataigne. The gites were delightful and very well furnished. The owners, Pat and Gill, live opposite and were always on hand to help and were wonderful hosts – nothing was too much trouble for them. Our grandchildren loved the play equipment in the gardens and the swimming pool. There are lots of places to visit in the vicinity including Piegut market on Wednesday mornings, which is a must. We are already planning to return next year.
The cottage is very comfortable and the garden is designed for taking things easily.
