Gites with pool in pretty village - 2 mins walk from & local bar/restaurant - Farmhouse (3 Bedrooms, Sleeps max 9)



Updated: 16-Nov-2016
Ideal for a large family or two families sharing - perfect base for exploring this stunning part of France!

La Petite Ferme is a small group of pretty gites converted from former farm buildings and set in the heart of an historic village. The Farmhouse can sleep up to 9 people and is perfect for a large family or two families sharing. The two smaller gites can accommodate 4 people and we frequently have visitors that enjoy having the whole place to themselves. The gites are arranged to give maximum privacy with their own terrace/bbq and outdoor seating areas. The local bar/restaurant is a short stroll down the hill. Enjoy time in our lovely swimming pool - we have plenty of sunbeds and parasols - or keep cool in our well stocked playbarn and enjoy the games and toys, play a game of table tennis, pool or table football. We have fishing nets and bicycles for you to borrow so you can set off and explore the lovely walks and safe cycle routes that surround the village. A short drive away are the market towns of Aulnay and Saint Jean d'Angely where several lively markets are held each week.

About the Owner

We moved to France in October 2015 delighted to have found this former farmyard and buildings that had been converted by the previous owners into 3 gites and a lovely home. We have enjoyed updating the gites and exploring this beautiful part of France and we now look forward to sharing our local knowledge with our visitors.

A French rural holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in The Cottage, one of the smaller gites but very clean with good facilities. We had lots of privacy and were able to have barbecues without restriction. The small complex has a lovely heated swimming pool with plenty of poolside furniture. The owners are very friendly, outgoing and helpful. Access and egress can be tricky.

The village of Dampierre sur Boutonne has a historic chateau, an inn with good catering and a local shop which doubles as the post office and sells a good variety of food including excellent baguettes and croissants and is within easy walking distance of the gite.

The gite is well located for touring the area in which there is a wide selection of typically French markets and small ineresting towns. All in all a good centre for relaxing by the pool or touring the Charentes.

I would certainly be able to recommend this property to a friend or relative and the large gite (farm house) with its private garden would be ideal for families and safe for young children when the gate is closed.

From the Owner

The village of Dampierre sur Boutonne is ideally situated for both inland and coastal exploration. The village has a bar/ restaurant a beautiful Renaissance Chateau and a 12th century church, and is surrounded by lovely countryside and safe cycle routes. With lovely market towns a short drive away, and the beaches and bustling resorts along the Atlantic coastline an hour's drive away, it really is the perfect place to be!

From the Owner

La Petite Ferme is in the centre of the pretty village of Dampierre sur Boutonne enjoying the benifits of village life including the local bar/restaurant just a 2 min stroll from the door.. There is a grade A fishing river running through the village and we are in the perfect spot for walks and cycle rides, or a kayak trip down the river! If you want a little less tranquility La Rochell, Cognac, Poitiers and Saintes are all less than an hour away. Alternatively, relax beside our lovely swimming pool and let the children amuse themselves in our spacious Playbarn, packed with toys, games, table footbal, pool, and table tennis!
