The larger supermarkets and many other shops, cafes, restaurants etc are only a further 10 minutes away in Parthenay. Parthenay is a large town full of historical monuments and modern facilities.

Thank you very much for making our holiday a great one. The boys have come back exhausted, which I think can only be a good thing! Mum and me also managed to relax, which is brilliant considering we had 3 boys. Your hospitality and helpfulness knew no bounds and we have had a great experience in your lovely French gite.

I hope you are enjoying your new and many guests!!!!

Once again, many thanks.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this gite. This was our 2nd time staying here and we have already booked to go back again next year. We stayed for 2 weeks and only left the gite on 3 occasions, as there was so much to keep the children entertained (children are aged 7-9 years)Aside from the lovely pool, there is a volleyball court, football goal, play area, table tennis and pool. Owners-Rose and Neil also organise volley ball games, a sports afternoon, group bbq nights and movie nights for those who wish to participate. All were great fun. The gites are clean, bright and modern. Rose and Neil are perfect hosts- relaxed and friendly and there if you need them.

So relaxing for adults-lots to do for kids

  • 5 of 5

Rose and Neil were brilliant hosts. So interesting to hear their story of how they developed their dream. Our boys (aged 10 and 14) loved the space that they had outside and the fact that they could independently swop from swimming, table tennis, football, volleyball, basketball and lots of other outdoor games. We loved the outdoor film night with popcorn for the kids and a glass of wine for the adults. The Gite was very clean, well equipped and had lots of storage. Large supermarkets within 15 mins drive and lots of BBQs enjoyed.

Perfect Escape in France

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described. It is located approx 2km from a very small village and about 15 mins drive to the town of Parthenay where the nearest supermarket is located (Lidl).

We travelled with 2 children (8 & 12). Our children had so much space and freedom here. There is so much to keep them occupied. Pool area is great , lots of space. The play area is great, suitable for football, volleyball, playing in the sandpit or just running round as children do. The accommodation has everything you need. The wifi signal is great should you require it and there are plenty of English speaking tv channels. The gite is clean and beds are comfortable.

Neil and Rose are perfect hosts who are there if you require them. They will happily source information and assist you however they can. Very welcoming hosts.

There is lots to see in the surrounding area but some days it is hard to pull yourself away from the pool. You can easily spend the day at the property relaxing and enjoy a bbq in the evening while catching the last rays of the sun. We tried horse riding, visited Lake Cyr for a swim and hired a pedalo and visited La Vallee de Singes which was a great day out at a monkey sanctuary.

Would suggest that you bring a Sat Nav with you if planning on visiting attractions.

We would not hesitate to recommend the property.

Fab time in an amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Travelled to this Gite as a family of four including two children aged 11 and 4. After a very long journey from Northumberland we were welcomed by our hosts Neil and Rose who were extremely welcoming and helpful all through the week. The gite was spotless and clean and included everything you need for a week away. The kitchen included everything you could possibly need and we were able to use the washing machine throughout the week. The gite has two very large bedrooms and is able to sleep six adults comfortably. We used the outside dining area and BBQ every day and were fortunate to have sunny hot weather all week. The children enjoyed playing by the pool which was securely fenced off and there were loads of activities which the kids could enjoy while we sipped some wine, such as ping pong, pool, darts, slide, see saw, ball games, cricket just to name a few. We did not stray far from the gite as it was so relaxing, so are looking forward to booking a fortnight next year so that we can enjoy all the attractions which are on offer in the local towns. I would recommend this to families with children and larger family groups travelling together as there are two gites next to each other so could easily accommodate 12 people. The grounds outside the gites are flat so could easily be accessed by wheelchairs if needed. I cant actually think of any faults or ways the holiday could of been improved, Neil and Rose were the perfect hosts who made us feel welcomed and we cant wait to return next year.

Ticked all the boxes!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay recently at Aspace gites. Weather perfect and location ideal. The gite was comfortable and the outside grounds were just perfect for the kids - aged 8 & 10yrs. Plenty of space for them and lots of activities. They did not want to leave the grounds during the few days we were there. They had great freedom in the pool - a very safe pool - a cement border with no tiles so kids were never going to slip on wet tiles so they could cut loose! It was big enough for them to have plenty of fun with balls and diving and all that kids get up to.

The owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful. A very interesting couple and we had a group BBQ on our last night that was full of great conversation with the owners and other guests - most enjoyable. I would recommend without hesitation.

Lovely gite - perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a very relaxing week here. We stayed with our 11 year old and 16 month old. We all had a really lovely time - the facilities are fantastic and Rose and Neil could not be more helpful and accomodating.

Both boys had so much fun - plenty for our active 11 year old to do and keep him occupied. The 16 month old has the freedom to run around and play on the large field and we could happily sit and watch him without worrying for his safety. Highly recommended for families with children of all ages.

From the Owner

We fell in love with this quiet hamlet, close enough to all the modern day requirements and amenities, but far enough to enjoy the natural beauty of the French countryside. Over 3 years we have together physically built the complex you see in the pictures, block by block, stone by stone, lots of hard work, laughter, tears and pure determination.The grounds and surrounding countryside is full of wildlife, and we love every day in this beautiful area.
