Situated in the pretty village of TILLOU in the second sunniest and increasingly popular area of France, the Poitou - Charentes. We can offer two properties for rental. LE FOUR À PAIN, which is the main house and has four bedrooms, can accommodate up to 10 people. LA FONTAINE, which is a gîte with two bedrooms and can sleep up to 4/5 people. Approximately 45 minutes drive from Poitiers airport, about 1.5 hours drive from La Rochelle airport and 4 hours from the ferry at St. Malo.
Step back in time to a slower, more gentle way of life. Relax and take your meals "al fresco" in the sunny courtyard. Watch the many and varied birds that visit our bird table. The area is ideal for "twitchers" and those interested in wildlife. There are Buzzards, Kestrels, Kites and Hoopoe birds to name just a few. There are many species of birds not seen in England. For fishing enthusiasts, there is a wide and varied choice of rivers and lakes where you can while away the hours. Bring your bikes and cycle along the quiet country lanes and pathways between fields of bright sunflowers and maize. Discover the many charming, typical French villages.
Have a cooling dip in our above ground 7.5 x 4.6 metre pool in the secluded garden, surrounded by fruit trees and is a real suntrap. There is also a gazebo in the pool area for those whishing to shelter from the sun. Or simply sit back and enjoy a glass or three of wine and maybe a barbeque. On warm summer nights sit outside and gaze at the clear, starlit sky. Here there is no light pollution. The night skies are breathtaking.
The welcome pack consists: French bread, butter, eggs, cheese, orange juice, bottle of wine and bottled water.
