Our Gite in France
To be found in the Poitou-Charente region, the second sunniest region of France after the Cote d’Azur, Le Vieux Grenier is an old grain attic which has recently been converted into a spacious and comfortable 3 bedroom gite.
Situated approximately 50 minutes from La Rochelle and 50 minutes from Poitiers (both of which have airports serviced from the UK) the property is ideally placed to enjoy the many attractions of the area. Le Vieux Grenier is located in a predominantly rural area within the small hamlet of Croue approximately 4km and 7km from the towns of Celle sur Belle and Melle respectively. Within easy reach of the property are the beaches of La Rochelle, Chatelaillon and the Ile de Re. For contrast beautiful historic towns and villages such as Parthenay, Saintes and Vouvent are equally accessible as are lakes, forests and the Futuroscope theme park at Poitiers.
This property is within an active farming area and so, throughout the year, cows may be heard mooing, the neighbour’s tractor may pass down the road and the cockerel does occasionally crow, (usually at about 4 pm) when he remembers! Many fields are full of sunflowers in July and early August and the markets abound with produce from the many small holdings and local farms….
