Le Papillon – Large rustic-style three bedroom gite, sleeps 8. Self-catering

This large, spacious family gite has been extensively renovated, but still retains some of the original barn features, including oak beams, stone walls and feeding troughs. Because of the stone walls, this property stays wonderfully cool in the hot summer months. The front and side windows of the gite have stunning views over open countryside. And in July and August the fields are full of beautiful sunflowers.

Le Papillon (‘Butterfly’) gite has 2 double bedrooms on the first floor with en suite shower rooms. On the ground floor there is a large spacious family room, with a double bed and two singles. This room has its own separate toilet, and a large walk-in shower room with ‘his & hers’ wash basins.

The open plan family living space includes comfortable sofas and chairs, a TV with Freeview, and a DVD player, plus dining table and chairs. And the well-equipped kitchen has all mod-cons, including a gas oven and hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, filter-coffee machine and a dishwasher. We also provide plenty of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery.

There is an iron and ironing board in the gite and a washing machine is provided for our guests in the utility room in the barn. However, we do not provide washing powder or fabric softener.

The outside space is accessed through the double-glazed patio doors, which lead onto a large private garden with two picnic tables, parasols and your own barbecue.

Le Papillon gite has fantastic views over the surrounding fields, and the summer evenings are ideal for lighting the barbecue and dining al fresco in your own private garden area.
