The Gîte

The waystation gite is an easy to access ground-level apartment set back 50 metres from the road and boasts views of green hills in every direction. It comprises of a large living room, 2 bedrooms, a spacious and well equipped kitchen, shower room and separate washroom containing an additional toilet, sizeable private terrace with a large plunge pool (2.2 metres x 4.6 metres), sun loungers and outdoor cooking facilities.


KitchenThe kitchen is a good size, fully equipped (includes dishwasher, microwave, cooker, washing machine) and recently installed (2015). The kitchen opens out onto the terrace where there is a table, chairs and a plancha (hot plate for outdoor cooking) in one direction and opens onto the indoor living room in the other. Both eating areas have great views.

Living Room

Living RoomThe living room is large, east-facing and simply decorated combining new furnishings (bought in 2016) with the old restored oak beams above. The living room includes a TV (we’ve installed satellite channels), DVD player, a double sofa.


Second bedroomThere are 2 bedrooms, both east facing where you can see the sun rise in the mornings between the mountain tops in the distance across fields. The master bedroom has a double bed and wardrobe. The second bedroom can either be furnished with a double bed or 2 single beds depending on your requirements.


BathroomThe gîte has one main bathroom equipped with modern shower, large sink and toilet and a separate washroom with another toilet and sink in it for your convenience. We provide bathroom towels, beach towels for outside and hand soap.


There are radiators in all main rooms apart from the kitchen which has a heated Master Bedroomtowel rail. There are bedroom fans available for the hotter months.


Approach from WestThere is off-road parking by the gite’s private entrance. If you have another car or visitors, there is also parking where we park in front of our house on the road.


Our place is surrounded by fields and the gîte entrance is on a seldom used track so noticeably quiet apart from the birdsong. The gîte garden is paved and tiled around the pool. North-facing, it provides shade during the summer months for al fresco dining. The pool is fully in the sun, there is a sun bathing area with sun loungers for the sun worshippers amongst you. The pool is 4.6 by 2.2 metres (we think of it as a large plunge pool to cool down in).
