No. 21  in Deux-Sèvres, a gite in Poitou-Charentes: Swimming Pool

A two bedroom/ 4 person gite located in a small hamlet in rural countryside.

Lovely rural gite, being part of an old farm, with garden, swimming pool and wonderful views over the Gatine hills.
Having holidayed for many years in France and staying in a variety of gites, we always dreamt of running our own. Since 2017 we have enjoyed welcoming guests, some of which have returned the following years.
The accommodation is spacious, providing a fully equipped kitchen/dining room with fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave etc. There is a bright lounge which has a comfy sofa, two armchairs, wood pellet burning stove, TV showing English and French channels, DVD Player, CD player, and internet access. French doors to the front of the lounge, and a back door leading on to a private terrace with access to the swimming pool 9m x 4.5m and large garden.
Two comfortable bedrooms located on the first floor, a double, which could accommodate a cot if required. The other is a twin room. The bathroom is central to both bedrooms with a large walk-in shower, bath, washbasin, wc. and heated towel rail. Bed linen and bath towels are provided. Please bring your own beach towels for use by the pool.
An iron, ironing board and hairdryer are also provided.
Guests at Chicheville can enjoy eating on the terrace outside the gite, where you will have your own BBQ, table and chairs, sun umbrellas and sun loungers are available on the pool terrace.
The gite has a large area of garden, with trees for shade, and the pool is shared with us. There is security fencing around the pool and a substantial pool cover. Private parking at the front of the gite. A welcome pack is provided on your arrival. We live on site, so if there is anything we can help you with, just ask.
This pretty region averages 2,250 hours of sunshine per year, making it the second sunniest region in France and, therefore, an ideal region to visit from spring to late autumn. In the cooler months, the gite has a wood pellet stove, an electric heater in the kitchen and electric radiators in the bedrooms providing a cosy atmosphere. Long term lets considered.
We live in a peaceful farming area, near Saint Paul-en-Gatine, the roads are quiet, so cycling and walking are a delight. Birds, such as Hoopoes, Woodpeckers, Buzzards, and Owls can be seen.
We are near historic Niort and Parthenay and many pretty villages. The Marais Poitevin is well worth a visit, try boating on the many canals or cycling along the trails. Hire a canoe or kayak on the lake at Mervent. For fishing enthusiasts, one of Europe's finest fishing complexes, Pescalis, is 10 mins away. Treetop adventures and Karting near by. Puy du Fou and Futuroscope are also within easy reach. In the summer months visit one of the many exhibitions, outdoor concerts and other events which are held in local towns and villages.
We hope to make our guests feel at home during their stay and look forward to welcoming you to this lovely part of France.
