About the property

Rural gîte in the heart of the French countryside with a Heated Swimming Pool

Our country cottage Sauvignon was once the farmyard barn, which has more recently been sympathetically converted to provide practical and comfortable accommodation. The self-catering holiday cottage, or gîte, is situated across the courtyard from the main house. It is constructed of traditional materials, including stone walls, oak beams and slate roofs. Le Hutereau has extensive grounds to enjoy whilst the gîte has its own patio area complete with outdoor furniture, a parasol and a barbecue.

Le Hutereau Sauvignon is a 3 bedroomed gite with an outdoor heated swimming pool. It is ideal for 6 people. The gite has its own kitchen, dining area, living room and bathroom. Cots provided upon request.

Bed linen, towels, pool towels and kitchen towels are provided at no extra cost.

All waste can be disposed of in our recycling centre!

Why Zara and Simon chose Saint-Denis-de-Gastines

​A three bedroom gîte on two floors. The downstairs living area has a sofa and three chairs and has double doors opening onto the private patio area. It has a fully equipped kitchen and a dining table with seating for six people.

The wooden staircase leads to a fully carpeted first floor with a master bedroom, a twin room and a room with bunk beds. The Master bedroom has a long window with views over the surrounding fields whilst the twin room looks out over the courtyard.

All rooms have ample cupboard space. The bathroom has a bath with a shower over, a hand basin and a WC.

Plenty of outside space for children to play. Flexible change over day. Well behaved pets welcome.

What makes this cottage unique

Our guests are free to roam around all the grounds and barn. There are plenty of grassy areas for children to play in. We have swings and a Wendy house. From May until October we have an outdoor heated swimming pool 8m x 4m.

Clean, comfortable and very tranquil.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and nice gite in a lovely rural surrounding. Simon and Zara were very helpful and friendly. The pool was lovely and well used by us. We didn't bring our dog but there was a secure area to let dogs run around and for more obedient dogs than ours there was plenty of space to mooch and sniff around. There are some nice walks from the gite into Carelles and also Saint Denis de Gastines. Fougeres a great place to visit. We visited at a very quiet time of year but we managed to hire bikes at Saint Fraimbault and had a go on the velo rail at Ambrees de Valles. Restaurant wise there was not too much open whilst we were there but Table Normande in Ernee was traditional French fare. Nice service. Would also recommend On Y in Fougeres. Excellent service, buzzy ambiance and good food. In short A great base and place to kick back and relax. We had a very nice week.
