About the property

Rural location, 3 double bedrooms, pretty countryside, pets welcome

Situated in the tranquil and beautiful department of La Creuse, Les Chirons gives the holiday maker a chance to really relax. The area offers many attractions including Chateaux, museums, rivers, lakes with beaches and water-sports, Golf, fishing, many beautiful walks and local markets.

The 150 year old cottage offers self catering accommodation for 6 people with three double bedrooms and the space to sleep a further person if required on a comfortable put-u-up. A cot is also available.

There are two bathrooms on the first floor (one is en-suite with shower) and a third W.C. on the ground floor. A fully equipped farmhouse style kitchen with a large table and seating for 6 persons, utility room with washing machine, dishwasher etc and a large comfortable lounge with DVD and free-sat TV. We have board games, books, DVDs and puzzles.

There is an above ground plunge pool for the warmer weather and plenty of outdoor seating and tables and a stone built BBQ. There is a large enclosed trampoline, table tennis table and lots of outdoor games ie badminton. We also have buckets and spades for the nearby beaches and armbands for the children. There are also bicycles for your use should you feel energetic.

The local village, just 1 mile away, offers restaurant and bar with live music on a Friday evening in the summer. We are currently waiting for new proprietors for the local shop/post office. However, major shops and large supermarkets are a 15/20 minute drive away. The Golf course is just 10 minutes away.

If you’re an angler, you are welcome to fish on our small private lake which is a 15 minute drive away. It is the typical tranquil forest pond. There are Carp to 12 lbs (common and mirror) and an abundance of Roach and Rudd. There is no extra charge and you will not require a licence. We can lend you some tackle. There are plenty of lakes in and around the area for fishing or swimming with lovely walks and our nearest lake (10 minutes) has a water ski centre and BMX track.

About Terry Wildman

I have lived in France with my husband since 2004. We have renovated two houses here. We love the peace and quiet and the beautiful scenery. We moved from Billericay in Essex which is beautiful in its own way but just a tad more busy!

Terry Wildman purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Terry Wildman chose Creuse

Although we live close by, the gite has it's own garden and is detached and completely private and not overlooked. It is surrounded by fields and the road itself is very quiet but we are only a short drive from all amenities. We now have Wifi inside the property and French and English tv. If you need anything whilst you are here we are very happy to help if we can.

What makes this cottage unique

J'ai A-Do-Ré.....

  • 5 of 5

Je recherchais du calme, un mode de vie simple et authentique, un séjour vers des valeurs essentielles. Je les ai trouvé chez vous, Terry et Keith. Une petite maisonnette comme il n'en existe presque plus, sans superflu mais propre, bien tenue et le confort nécessaire et qui permet d'apprécier la nature aux alentours, sans chichis. Keith et Terry sont des personnes adorables, discrets mais toujours présents si vous avez besoin de quoique ce soit. Le lieu Les Chirons est avant tout pour des personnes qui recherchent ce quelque chose de vrai et d'authentique, de calme et de retour à la simplicité.

Merci de tout coeur, Keith et Terry, pour votre accueil et votre gentillesse.
