Outside: The garden outside the gites is just under an acre so there is plenty of room to spread yourselves out. Garden and patio furniture along with barbecues are available. There are a further 2.5 acres beyond the garden which is given over to a playing field - ideal for energetic youngsters - and a newly planted orchard which we are developing. You are more than welcome to sample the apples, pears and plums when in season. The swimming pool is around 1 metre deep and close to the terraces so you can keep an eye on your children while enjoying a glass of wine, cooking the barbecue or just relaxing. More
