About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom close to Angles sur l'Anglin

La Petite Ecurie is a pretty two bedroom stone cottage converted from an old stable building to provide accommodation for 4 people plus baby.

The cottage opens onto a courtyard on one side and has a private garden with terrace on the other. La Petite Ecurie is centrally heated and available for rental all year round- ideal for cosy Autumn/Winter breaks.

Guests have exclusive use of the pool (securely fenced, perfect for children) with garden furniture and sun loungers, which has its own south-facing terrace, overlooking the beautiful countryside. The pool is open from late-May to mid-September and is cleaned daily. Beyond the pool area is an enclosed paddock, ideal for ball games.

Bike hire is available and we have a range of garden toys and games for children.

Here is a copy of an email we received for a lovely guest that left a couple of weeks ago. With her permission, Helen wrote :-

Hello Nich and Julie,

Thanks so much for providing us with such a lovely cottage for our stay. We had a fantastically relaxing time and very much appreciated your on-hand but unobtrusive presence. Thank you.

It's so nice to know our guests are enjoying La Métairie d'auge.

About Julie and Nich Howitt

We came to live here at La Metairie d'Auge in 2006. The property was previously a farmhouse and outbuildings parts of which date back to 17th century. We have since renovated the old stables to create La Petite Ecurie and have completely renovated the original farmhouse to make our house (across the courtyard from the cottage).

Julie and Nich Howitt purchased this cottage in 1999

Lekker rustig, vrijwel compleet

  • 5 of 5

Op een half uurtje rijden ligt het natuurgebied La Brenne waar je als natuurliefhebber een prima week kunt doorbrengen.

Het enige wat we in het huis misten was een kapstok op een logische plaats....en een afzuigkap was misschien ook wel handig geweest.

Het weer was nogal fris (1e week mei) dus het zwembad hebben we niet gemist. De elektrische kachels warmden het huis gelukkig heel snel op.
