Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

With its own private swimming pool and natural setting it combines comfort and style, with peace and quiet.

The cottage has a wealth of space and character. Tall vaulted ceilings reveal original restored beams and beautiful exposed stonework. With two double bedrooms, bathroom, large open plan lounge/kitchen there is a wealth of space - the property easily sleeps up to four. The large enclosed garden features a new 10m (30ft) pool, generous lawn, poolside BBQ and patio area.

Situated along a quiet little lane, next to fields of sunflowers, the cottage gives you privacy, peace of mind, in an ideal location for exploring. Beyond the ancient walled garden the views look out across the beautiful French countryside where you’ll find many little villages and towns nearby, with bustling markets, quaint bars and restaurants. The natural beauty of the Charente and the historic city of Poitiers with its shopping, sightseeing and wine routes are a short hop in the car.

Close-by you can also sample the amazing flavours of Cognac and the wine regions of Bordeaux, the Loire Valley and the Dordogne. Closer still, you can visit the historic port of La Rochelle where you can combine a long, lazy-day on the beach with a visit to the amazing marina, aquarium, harbour, chic bars, restaurants and shops.

The cottage has one double bedroom and a further bedroom with two single beds. The large open plan lounge leads onto a kitchen area where you can cook, entertain and relax. The kitchen is fully fitted with hob, oven, microwave, fridge freezer and washing machine. The lounge also has a cosy wood-burner as well as some of the creature comforts from home such satellite TV. Bed linen and towels are provided so all you need to think about are pool towels. There is a good-sized bathroom with w/c/, basin, bath and overhead shower.

Long days can be spent lounging by the pool or eating al-fresco on the patio. Outside, the large enclosed garden features a new 10m (30ft) pool with gradual steps for easy access. There is a very generous lawn space, poolside BBQ and patio. The orchard provides seasonal cherries, apples, nectarines, greengages and damsons as well as the opportunity relax and unwind under the shade of one of the many trees.

The private, parking area easily accommodates three cars. Les Fueilles also has a dedicated shaded play area with children’s swings. With its private walled garden, it makes The Leaves a perfect location for a family holiday.

Fabulous relaxing holiday for all the family.

  • 5 of 5

I spent 2 weeks in July at the cottage. The drive down from Calais with my dogs was very easy. My daughters then all flew in and out for a short stay via Poitiers airport which was a simple 35 min away. We all had a great time including my 4 year old grandson. The nearest town was only a ten min drive and had a excellent supermarket, modern vets clinic and a fabulous restaurant. The owner Michelle was really helpful and easy to contact. Would definitely return.

Lovely place with a home away from home experience

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in the cottage and enjoyed spending time there with our dog and exploring the garden with lovely pool and the surrounding area. True French countryside makes a great getaway from everyday routine yet maintaining a home away from home feel with all amenities (excl.wifi, great for a break, but incl.English TV).
