  • A Peaceful Refuge by A Lovely Scenic River

    "This vacation rental is in a relatively less travelled area in France called the Vienne or the Poitou. Visitors will find it just as interesting as the Dordogne region. This region also has its beautiful villages, chateaus and rivers. This comfortable home in St Pierre de Maille is located on the Gartempe River. We let time go by as we watched the river rolling along and enjoyed bird watching while sitting in the glider along the river bank. I enjoyed looking at the views across the river and the reflections cast on the water of the old stone bridge and chateau. The house has charm and was built in the early 15th century by the Bishops of Poitier. The garden is at the river's edge and provided a secluded space for us to write, read, create art and meditate. It has a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and each room has natural light. The owners have wonderful books for you to enjoy. They have bikes available ant this allowed us to see the surrounding countryside and nearby villages. During the spring, summer and early fall, you will find kayaking and boat available for rental. There are two kayaks available for your use. St Pierre is a small village with bakery, grocery and a pleasant restaurant located in the middle of the village. There are hiking trails and my favorite one takes you to the beautiful village of Angles-sur-l”Anglin which has been named one of the most beautiful villages in France. It's a perfect place to visit a few art galleries s and enjoy a meal at a local restaurant. Nearby is the town of La Roche-Posey where you can destress in the thermal waters and enjoy a spa treatment. If you'd like a city experience, Poitier, the capital of Poitou, will provide you with historical sites and museums. If cinematic photography is your interest, visit Futuroscope. Within a couple hour drive, you can visit the Dordogne or the chateaus of the Loire Valley."

  • Perfect stay!

    "A perfect stay in a very fine house. The garden is closed (brick wall) so the dog (or children) are safe to play. The house is everything it says in the description. Fine beds, internet that works exelent, everything you need is in the house. Parking by the house, dvd, satelite tv for the evening... Perfect! For four persons it's exellent four six persons a littel small (we were two and one dog). The owner is very friendly and kind man and is a person who is reasonable in price and trustworthy. For us very important. The house was also clean and well maintained. The sea is a half our walk and a supermarket a 10 minute walk. By car you are within 45 minutes bij the ocean and the forrest. Also a littel harbor with fine restaurant is nearby. We'll be back! Nathalie en Joke"
