The spacious Pommier is full of charm and character and comfortably sleeps 6 people*. It was newly renovated for the 2016 season, and the bedrooms/beds allow flexibility so that the cottage is appropriate for both couples and for friends holidaying together. It is attached to - but completely separate and private from – the owners’ accommodation. There are three large and well-furnished bedrooms (one on the ground floor), each with its own en-suite shower room, and there is a beamed open-plan sitting/dining room/kitchen (approx. 45 sq.m) which overlooks a private furnished terrace, the swimming pool (4m x 11m) and the surrounding countryside. There is also a separate terrace leading from the ground floor bedroom and the gite is heated throughout, for year round holidays. Floors have tiles or laminate and there is free internet available. There are plenty of DVDs and novels to borrow while holidaying here in the Charente.
* We offer special rates for couples in September/October - see "Rates" for further details.
The terrace leads into an open plan main room ( approx. 9m x 5m) which has a modern, fully equipped kitchen, and separate areas for comfortable dining (the table seats 6) and for relaxing. It is a wonderful space for preparing meals or unwinding after a day’s sightseeing or walking. It has a high, beamed ceiling and there are three sets of French doors opening onto the terrace with BBQ and table/chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances - oven, hob, fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher and has plenty of cutlery, crockery and ovenware. The lounge area has comfortable seating, coffee table, TV/DVD player and hifi, plus small ipod dock. Sit in the garden and enjoy a relaxing lunch sheltered from the midday heat or a leisurely supper, watching the sun go down.
Our large and characterful ground floor bedroom, "Ouessant" (25 sq.m) has an attached/private shower room with large modern shower, wc and country style vanity basin. This south and west-facing bedroom has an ancient (decorative only!) Charentais “potager” (a type of slow cooker), stone "evier", beamed ceiling, original terre cuite floor tiling, stone fireplace, a large south facing window, and a west-facing external door; it leads onto a small terrace with sitting area, for watching the glorious sunsets. The room sleeps two - there is a double and a single bed (dressed as a day-bed) - and can be made up as a twin or as a double. There is a wardrobe, chest of drawers and two bedside tables plus small table and comfortable chairs.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms. Bedroom two ("Rambouillet" 16 sq.m) sleeps two and faces south, looking out over gardens; it has beams, a newly refurbished ensuite shower/basin and a separate wc, a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables.
Bedroom three ("Jacob" 24 sq.m) is a very large room with high ceiling and beams and which also faces south with views over the gardens. Again, it sleeps two - in two double beds (because our max. occupancy of the gite is 6) - and can be made up as a twin or as a double. It is furnished with a triple wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside tables. It leads into a brand new ensuite shower room with large shower, basin and wc.
All heating, bedlinen and towels (including pool towels) are provided. The gite will be clean and ready for your arrival and we ask that you leave it clean and tidy when you leave.
Dogs are welcome - but please read through the information "A Dog's Holiday..." which appears under the Bookings/ Enquiries tab.
