Downstairs, each gite is open plan, making the living areacool and airy in summer and, for anyone staying in the winter months, gas-fired central heating and open fires with logs provided will keep you warm.  All are furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs, and to keep everyone happy, we have installed satellite TV and stereo hi-fi music  systems. Each Gite has one 'Queen Size' (Large double) Bed in the master bedroom and single beds in the other bedrooms. The beds have mattresses made specially for us and the bathrooms are well equipped with bath and shower facilities and all the 2 storey gites have  a second WC.  The kitchens are fully equipped and include a dishwasher, all have a washing machine .

Outside, each gite has its own terrace with garden furniture where you can eat out in summer. Just beyond, there is a pretty terraced garden with a 15-metre swimming pool, stone pool house and barbecue.  Faites comme chez vous! (Make yourself at home!)

We have named our Gites after the principal activities that take place and are close to the hearts of the owners of the Château.
