These facilities are shared when our large gîte, Le Marronnier, is occupied.

Swimming Pool

Our swimming pool is situated between the accommodation and 2.5-acre field.  It is fenced, with a padlocked gate and an alarm.

The pool is 10m x 5m and is suitable for exercise as well as for fun, however, it is not deep enough for diving.  It is heated from May through to October.

The large sun terrace features sun loungers and chairs, parasols, and a solar-heated shower.

Indoor Games

The games room is in our small barn, with access from the courtyard.  Inside are a table-tennis table, a dartboard, and a  selection of free-weights. There is also a selection of buckets and spades etc, for when you visit the beach.

Outdoor Games

Our range of outdoor games provides fun activities for all ages and abilities, they include Swings, Petanque, Badminton, 9 Pin Bowling, a selection of medieval games, and Football.

Off-Road Parking

The courtyard is at the front of the property, where there is sufficient off-road parking for up to 8 cars.  It is South-facing, therefore it gets extremely hot during the day, please be careful about what is left inside cars.

Leading from the courtyard are the entrances to both gîtes, the indoor games room and via a passageway, the gardens.

Utility Room / Laundry

The laundry has a coin-operated washing machine.  There are sinks, a vacuum cleaner, an iron and ironing board, a clothes dryer, pegs, a bucket, a mop, etc.  Directly to the rear of the laundry, there are 2 rotary washing lines.

This room is also our recycling center.


Outside space is something that we have plenty of, with 10,000 m² set aside as gardens and another 12,000 m² used as grazing for horses.

There are a number of shady seating areas with tables and chairs, which can be moved around to suit your tastes. As well as flower beds, shrubs and trees, we have made areas for playing football, a boules court, and space for badminton.
