This beautiful former farmhouse is in a peaceful location in the French countryside, set in almost two hectares of informal gardens and woodlands and with an outdoor heated saltwater infinity pool.  Bordeaux and Cognac are within a one hour drive as are the beaches of the Atlantic coast.  Local towns and villages offer a variety of amenities and shops, as well as weekly markets selling fresh, regional produce.

La Gaitrie enjoys a beautiful setting in peaceful surroundings.  There are miles of tracks for you to walk, run or cycle, right from the doorstep through the woodlands full of oak, birch, chestnut and cherry trees, vineyards and sunflower-filled countryside.

Guest Accommodation

Our charming, traditional gîte is ideal for individuals, couples or small families.  There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a single bed and child's bunk.  There is also a sofabed in the living room.  The large bathroom has a walk-in shower, but no bath. There is a comfortable living room with a fully equipped kitchen making it ideal for you to bring your family along with you. Cots, travel cots and high chair can be provided on request.  The gîte is wheelchair friendly and fully accessible.

Larger families can be accommodated upstairs within the main house.  This large family room (40 sq.m.) has a superking size bed and four single beds.  Across the landing is your private bathroom with bath and shower and WC. There is also an additional double sofabed on the large landing area.  There are low door frames in this part of the house and low beams in the dormitory.

From 2019 we will be able to accommodate larger groups in newly renovated private rooms.

A large games room, perfect for indoor activities and for exercising in wet weather, opens to the rear to the gardens and also to the pool terrace.  The house is wheelchair friendly.

The outdoor heated saltwater infinity pool is ideal both for hydrotherapy and aqua activities as well as for simply relaxing in the peaceful surroundings of our gardens.

La Gaitrie is in a dark sky area with amazing views of the Milky Way on clear nights.  We have a house telescope available on request or bring your own!
