Description

Our secluded, lovingly restored old farmhouse is in a peaceful and tranquil south-facing location offering a well equipped, heated, comfortable, exclusive-use family holiday home accommodating 9 to 11 guests (including two cots). The four bedrooms consist of two double bedrooms, one large family bedroom and one twin bedroom. Our house has two kitchens and two lounges which gives plenty of space for large groups and also enables it to be split into two separate units so that when two families holiday together they can each have privacy if desired.

La Baudiere is built around a large, south-facing, open courtyard which offers stunning views over the local farmland, woodland and our 10x4m swimming pool (heated by a specialist low energy, carbon efficient, solar system, in a secure area with safety-gate access). Beyond the pool is a small, grassy, kiddie play area with swing set, sandpit and various toddler toys.

Our house consists of a large, main kitchen which has a spacious table that can seat up to 12, large oven, 5-ring gas hob, microwave and dishwasher. The second, smaller kitchen seats 4 and includes a washing machine, ironing board etc. We have two spacious lounges, each with UK satellite TV, comfy sofas and coffee tables, bookshelves with a selection of books and games and dvds for guests' use. Both lounges open into the kitchens and also out on to the sunny courtyard.

Outside are two built-in charcoal barbecues for alfresco mealtimes, one is in the pool area with plenty of tables and seating under the shady gazebo, the other is under the front of the open barn with a large table and plenty of chairs .

Large wooden gates at the courtyard entrance ensure privacy and child safety, we have plenty of space outside to park up to 5 cars.

We are situated close to the historical medieval village of Faye la Vineuse with its 9th century church and post office/grocery/bakery depot/shop. There are several beautiful walking and cycling routes for our guests to explore in this area too, suitable for all ages as our countryside is softly rolling with lots of cart tracks and opportunites to see local wildlife such as deer, hares, a wide range of birdlife and even the odd farmer or two...

Nearby are several other villages with restaurants, shops, bakeries. We are ideally located in the Loire region for exploring the beautiful countryside as well as such attractions as horse riding, go-karting, canoeing, zoos, cycle routes and golf courses; the historic towns of Richelieu, Chinon, Saumur, Tours and Poitiers, the famous chateaux of Chambord, Blois, Amboise and Chenonceaux.

The seaside town of La Rochelle is just 2 hours drive away. It has a picturesque harbour area with lovely fish restaurants and narrow winding streets and is close to the popular island of Ile de Rey, reached by a spectacular curved 1km long bridge. There are some lovely beaches and little harbour areas with plenty of cafes and restaurants on the island. Bicycles are available there for hire and, as the island is flat, it makes for a pleasant afternoon of leisurely cycling.

We are approximately 6 hours drive from Calais (routes from Dover and Folkestone) and 4 hours from Le Havre or Caen for ferries from Portsmouth. The Newhaven- Dieppe route is also popular, Dieppe is just over 4 hours. Tours and Poitiers Airports are each about 1 hour drive distant.

Further Details:
We are located in the Loire region which is known as the “Garden of France”, it is a National Park and has been awarded the title of World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
This area is described by Meteofrance weather guide as having the second most hours of sunshine annually after the Riviera!

As well as the numerous fantastic chateaux in the Loire region, there are lots of other interesting places to visit too; such as the excellent vineyards; the cavalry regiment museum, tank musuem and olympic equine centre in Samur; a troglodyte village; falconry displays in the medieval town of Chauvigny; canoeing, horseriding, walking and cycling routes; go-karting; treetop adventure park; hot-air ballooning; Beauval Zoo which is now home to two Giant Pandas; the award winning Vallee des Singes Monkey Park and the famous Futuroscope.

Cycling for all ages is popular here, there are many cycle tracks and routes close to La Baudiere and the country lanes are so peaceful family cycle trips are a real pleasure. If you don't want to bring your own bicycles, there is a company in Chatellerault that does rentals (including delivery/pickup of bicycles). There is plenty of room in our open barn area for you to store your bicycles too.

There are also lots of counryside walks to take from our house with plenty of chances to spot local wild life such as deer, hares, bird life and even chat with local farmers...

If you are interested in wine-tasting, please ask - we can arrange for you to visit our favourite local vineyard, family run for over 300 years - they offer an English speaking guided tour, including tasting 5 different wines. We can also give you details of other vineyards in the area.

There are several local markets - please see our information on arrival for the various days.
