Tranquility Cottage as its name suggests, is set in peaceful surroundings where you can totally relax and unwind. There are some lovely walks and cycle rides to be had around the country lanes yet our local village with all amenities is less than 1km away. Alternatively, you can lie on a sunbed by the heated pool (which measures 10m x 5m) and you can have a proper swim or float around on the lilo in the sunshine!
We are approximately 6 hours drive from Calais not incuding coffee breaks! We are also only 30 minutes from Poitiers airport and 1 hr 15 from La Rochelle airport.Ryan Air/Easyjet fly all year round. The house is ideal for a summer holiday, a short break or a base to stay if you are house hunting.
Access is via your own gated entrance and the property is all on one level.
There is a private garden behind the gite and a terrace area in front with BBQ, sunbeds,patio table and chairs overlooking the swimming pool and the countryside beyond.The front garden is south facing so the pool is in the sunshine for most of the day but there are trees and parasols for shade when needed.The pool is shared only with the owners who occasionally have a swim after work/golf!
