Part of an ancient barn, traditionally rustic yet furnished with all you need for your self-catering holiday. Exposed beams, tiled floors throughout, wood burning stoves and restful outdoor areas make La Germondière an ideal location for your holiday. We are pet-friendly too.... so you don't have to leave your faithful friend behind.
We have two spring fed private fishing lakes of 0.75 and 1.75 acres, stocked with carp (mirror, common, koi and grass), tench and roach, surrounded by mature shrubs and trees.
A rural country setting rich in wildlife, providing you with a perfect environment for bird-watching, photography, painting, or simply relaxing and soaking up the wonders of nature.
The gîte has a well equipped kitchen/dining area (seating for 4) with a mezzanine level snug, a spacious double bedroom, walk in shower room and separate wc. The gîte accommodates 2 people.
The gîte has a gas cooker, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee machine, iron and ironing board, clothes airer. Even a hairdryer is provided. Patio furniture, parasol, sunbeds and a BBQ. Electric radiators in most rooms, wood-burner for those cooler evenings, electric fans for the hot summer period. UK TV and free wifi are also provided.
We also supply a picnic blanket, we hope you will use it by our lakes. We are primarily a child-free zone - children by exception only, to sustain the peaceful ambience.
Gîte de la Prairie is not suitable for people who have difficulty walking or with steps. There are two steps into the front door, plus 2 steps out onto the patio. Inside, the steps to the mezzanine level are fairly steep, and not easily accessible for those with walking difficulties. Our second gite may be an alternative, and is open all year.
Gite de la Prairie is open April to October.
