When designing this holiday accommodation we tried to consider all of the issues that we had encountered and how we would have like to have been treated. So, with that in mind we have incorporated many small ideas that help to make your holiday enjoyable.
We also offer free WIFI.
La Metairie Gite makes an excellent base for one or two couples however the layout is unsuitable for children.
Spacious Ensuite Bedrooms
La Metairie Gite is a two generous sized bedroomed gite sleeping a maximum of four people. Stretch out on the foam topped bed or on a Tempur mattress!
Both bedrooms have their own ensuite shower rooms. There you will find a choice of shower gels, hair shampoos and conditioners. Hand wash, body lotion and makeup remover are also to found. Hairdryers are placed in each of the bedrooms.
Open Plan Kitchen and Lounge
Downstairs there is an airy kitchen diner equipped with dishwasher, extra large cooker range, microwave, full-size fridge-freezer, filter coffee maker, toaster and pressure cooker. The kitchen cupboards are well equipped with plenty of crockery, glasses and utensils that make it a home from home. It comes complete with teapot and a stove top expresso maker.
A comfortable lounge, which includes a 3 seater sofa, 2 reclining armchairs, WIFI and satellite TV, helps you to switch off and unwind.
There is also a separate utility room with a washing machine, iron and ironing board plus a further sink unit.
Upstairs the mezzanine floor area provides that extra special space to relax in with 2 day beds, side tables and soft lighting. Wi Fi is available for catching up on emails but its also the perfect space to catch up that book you always promised yourself time to read.
Heating is provide, in the winter throughout the Gite.
Cool off and relax in the 10 x 5 metre heated swimming pool, shared with the owners. Unwind on the Bridgman rattan sun loungers, don't worry about packing pool towels - they are provided.
At the touch of a switch the electric pool cover opens and the pool awaits. The pool is heated, in line with weather conditions, because who wants to brave a cold pool.
Along with the sun lounger cushions and lounger towels, a selection of sun creams for both the face and body are provided (as is aftersun cream). A solar shower is next to the pool; one of its advantages is it helps to minimise pool chemicals.
At the rear of the gite, through the french doors, there is a private sun terrace with more Bridgman rattan furniture and a handy pergola to provide that all important shade. Sit and unwind with views across the fields to the village of Alan and its palace.
And for that perfect lunch on a sunny day, grill your meals on your gas plancha.
