About

Le gîte au Vert is a little piece of heaven set in beautiful rural France, the gîte is recently decorated throughout and is guaranteed to offer you a comfortable and stylish stay surrounded by mature trees in our 2 acre garden with river frontage.

The holiday home is perfect for families looking for a secure place to chill and relax; as we only have one gîte on the premises you will have exclusive access to the pool.

The garden is particularly beautiful with plenty of space for children to play and explore, including numerous outside games including molkky, boules, children’s golf, as well as inflatables for the pool and a pirate ship paddling pool for very little ones to keep everyone happy and entertained.

Depending on the season you can pick peaches, grapes, fig, apples and mirabelles from our various fruit trees.

The gîte is spacious with a separate dining room and sitting room so ideal for families; adults can have their own space while the children play next door.

The kitchen is well equipped for cooking with a gas hob and stove as well as a microwave and there is a barbeque right outside the gîte.

If you are a fan of board games we have a wide selection for guests to borrow or if you just feel like a night in with a DVD after a strenuous day relaxing then we have lots to choose from.

You can catch the last of the day’s sunshine relaxing under a vine in the private gravelled courtyard.

We have a number of bicycles available for use (helmets not provided). We are biker friendly and have space to store two motorbikes under cover.

We live in the house next to the gîte and will be available throughout your stay should you need any assistance such as booking restaurant tables etc. We can also offer you a full vegetarian breakfast or a vegetarian meal if you are arriving late or just don’t want to cook! Please ask for details.

The village is in the heart of rural France, surrounded by fields of wheat and sunflowers with plenty of paths for walking, running and riding your bike We are about 5 minutes drive from the nearest bar and 15 from the nearest restaurants and large supermarket.

There is a wide range of activities all within 1 hour’s drive of the gîte and we would be happy to suggest ideas for days out to suit all interests and tastes. If you plan on travelling around the surrounding attractions then a car is essential is public transport is limited.
