Welcome to La Grue Gites

Bois, Verre and La Ferme

Set amongst the smiling sunflowers and magical Cognac vines in the peaceful hamlet of La Grue, our three gites all have individual, private courtyard gardens with pretty flowers, scented herbs and the occasional tomato plant for you to use. 

Imagine waking to breakfast in your garden with freshly baked pastries, local ‘confiture’ and freshly squeezed orange juice.

Later, how about a barbecue? Each gite has a stone-built barbecue and outdoor dining seating with a parasol for those family meals ‘au dehors’.

If you’re feeling social, our shared courtyard with outdoor seating area along with ping-pong, table football and darts board is often where friendships are struck.

Our large, inviting swimming pool in its own walled garden with key entry has plenty of space for sun loungers and parasols. The shaded decked area is ideal for a break from the sun and perhaps a spot of colouring, a game or even private dining of an evening. (Please ask for more details).

We have a library of toys, books, craft materials and children’s games. Our gites are child-friendly.

For your youngsters to run off some steam, we have a games field with football goals, badminton, swing-ball and plenty of other field games to choose from.

New for 2020 is a fire pit, built by our son (with a little help)  for marshmallow toasting with log seating.

Our laundry area has a washing machine and extra cleaning materials, after all, who wants to come home to mounds of washing?

Now for our gites. ‘Bois’ (a former wood-store) is our one-bed roomed gite which, along with all our properties, has been tastefully renovated in the Charentaise style with exposed stone walls, oak beams and traditional flooring – it’s perfect for couples. It has a modern kitchen with everything you will need and a dining area for four.

‘Verre’ (once a bottle store) is a spacious two-bedroomed gite, comfortably sleeping four people with a main double bedroom and a twin room. There is an open plan well-equipped kitchen and a dining area.

‘La Ferme’ (once a farm house) sleeps six with its three large bedrooms. There is a spacious courtyard, a large lounge with a beautiful open-fireplace and, a fully-equipped dining-kitchen giving you plenty of space.

We work really hard to ensure your stay is a memorable one for all the right reasons!

Happy holidays.

Martin and Carol

Just a few reviews

...Mix of modern and traditional...

“Had a great week in the 1 bed roomed gite! Quiet location in a beautiful area. Rooms finished to a high standard mix of modern and traditional! Loads to see in the area however would definitely recommend renting a car. Owners are very friendly. Could not recommend enough.”

Sam Barnard, Facebook Review

...Spacious and beautifully maintained...

“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The 3 bedroomed gite was brilliantly equipped with all you require for a self catering holiday and was very comfortable. Carol and Martin are lovely hosts who made us feel very welcome and their pizza night with the other guests was a great fun event. The pool area is spacious and beautifully maintained. We would highly recommend as a great place to come on holiday.”

...Everything you could possibly need...

“Just returned from a lovely one week stay in the 2 bedroom Gite, Verre. The Gite is very well equipped, from a fully stocked kitchen to an iron & ironing board there’s everything you could possibly need – even a cool box & ice packs for days out. We made good use of the private bbq and shared outside space as the kids loved to play table tennis & table football in the barn.”
