French Farmhouse Holidays

French farmhouse holidays don’t come any better than those in our delightful gîte, Le Marronnier.

This is a large holiday farmhouse with a shared pool. The rooms are spread over two floors, and together with a conservatory, provide plenty of space for up to 12 guests.  Each room has been tastefully decorated and furnished, with an emphasis on comfort and convenience.  Above all, we aim to provide holiday accommodation, in our large farmhouse, that feels just like home.

Entry to the property is from a courtyard, with sufficient off-road parking for up to 8 cars.  Leading out from the rear, via the bright and airy conservatory are our established gardens. These are extensive and spread over 2.5 acres, with exotic trees, shrubs, and flower borders. There is also lots of open space. The gardens are completely fenced, for added child safety, and there are no busy roads nearby.

All of the bedroom and shower/WC room windows are fitted with fly screens, so windows can be left open during the warmer nights.
