Large garden & house; loads of things to entertain

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic three weeks in Aubigne - we have being coming to France for many years, and this was up there with the best.

First off, there is Fabrice - the house owner. He is very friendly, possibly the most sociable of all landlords we have rented from. We had weekly chats in the evening in my poor french and his reasonable English! He loves the gite, as he has put his own labours into it.

The house itself is wonderful; the pictures here do not do it justice:

Inside: Plenty of space, a well stocked kitchen with a sofa to the side, upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, a brilliant living room with dvd/video/games/pool table/books.

Outside: The gardens are very large, I'd estimate around an acre. They are not overlooked and protected by an electric gate. A variety of plants and hedging breaks up the area. A badminton net is provided - which we had great fun playing doubles!

The pool is a decent size - it has a removable cover, nice to have when it is a bit cooler, but a bit awkward to remove when its sunny. Plenty of chairs, tables and sun-loungers.

A gas BBQ is provided, which I preferred over charcoal due to its speed and ease of use. I see this as a bonus! Picnic tables are provided under a shelter at the front of the house. A ping-pong table is there too.

A small shed housed a huge selection of bikes, around 16 of them! We used 5 of them to see the locality. Very conveniently, there is a track right from the gite's gates heading south that has no cars on it. It allows a safe cycle of around 2km towards the crossroads at Bret, which further leads to a forest. This was a great bonus, and we ended up cycling most days.

Our time there flew, a sign of a hassle free but entertaining holiday. It was the perfect blend of relaxation, exploration, fun, exercise, good company and fresh air.
