Our gite has all you need for an amazing luxury holiday in rural France. Vacheroy has a fully equipped kitchen dining area, a large beamed, double height lounge diner, a family bathroom with toilet & both bath & seperate shower unit & an en-suite bathroom on the grond floor. Outside is a large private, partly shaded patio area to relax on, a large garden for playing games, a shaded gazebo to chill out under & our extensively terraced luxury swimming pool with ample sun beds & umbrellas. 

Vacheroy is here for you to enjoy & whether inside or out it is fully equipped so you can relax & enjoy your holiday. This includes the free Wi-Fi throughout the cottage and extending outside to all the dining & relaxing areas, including poolside. We positively encourage you to post lots of pictures of you enjoying the Gite & pool!

Kitchen - The kitchen/diner is light & modern & has everything you'll need whether you love to cook a little...or a lot. It is equipped with a new large fridge freezer, a gas cooker, microwave, four slot toaster, dishwasher & table & chairs. In the cupboards you'll find all the cutlery, crockery, glasses & kitchen implements you'll need to cook up whatever feast you fancy. 

Lounge - The double height lounge & dining room is the centre piece of the inside of our Gite. When you see it I'm sure you will love the light airy feel & the beauty of the old Elm beams. The lounge has a large leather sofa, further sofa & a dining table & chairs to seat 8. Featuring a large flat screen TV with English Sky Freeview channels & a DVD player if you fancy a little time inside. The lounge also has a new log burner but I very much doubt you will need any extra heat!

Bedrooms - The Gite can sleep up to eight comfortably (Maximum 6 adults) Above the lounge on a mezzanine, there is a romantic double bed & dressing area. Adjacent is an attic room, with low ceiling height, suitable for up to two children. There are two single beds and a "chill out room" with bean bags, dvds and books. Downstairs there is a small twin room with luxury single beds & a King-size double with an ensuite shower room & toilet.

Outside & gardens - The Gite is approached through double gates to a large front garden containing a plum tree & flowering hibiscus. The views to the front look out over the fields of sunflowers, wheat or maize towards the church at Sousmoulins that is beautifully lit up at night. At the rear is your private terrace area with outside dining table & seating, shaded cushioned benches & a wood/charcoal BBQ. At the rear you also have views out over fields to the woods. Additionally, there are two hammocks & a children's swing set. The highlight of the rear gardens is the new 10x5 metre heated swimming pool & patio. The pool is shared between the Gite & house but generally will be yours to enjoy in tranquility. It's situated in order to be in full sun from dawn to dusk & has an in-pool seating area so you can soak up the rays, whilst sitting & drinking your sundowners in the cooling water.... The pool is open between 10am & 8pm but those times can be varied by mutual consent. If you need to swim a couple of miles before breakfast who are we to stop you!?

If lounging by the pool is not quite enough & you're a little more energetic the garden is also equipped with an all weather table tennis table, pool table, the traditional French game of boule, a badminton net & racquets & a croquet set. We have two mountain bikes you are welcome to borrow at your own risk! One men's & one ladies. If you like to bring your own bikes we can store them securely & this area is fantastic for cycling. The roads here are very quiet & in France cyclists are given the utmost consideration - it's the law! As a keen cyclist myself I'd be happy to point you in the right direction & suggest itineraries etc. There are many marked cycle routes in the area. If you aren't able to bring your bikes with you, we can arrange for cycle & accessory hire through www.bikehiredirect.com who will deliver it all to your doorstep.

Vacheroy gite welcomes well behaved pets at a small supplement, registered guide/service dogs are welcome free of charge. Please make contact to discuss as we do have a friendly Cavachon and recently two kittens adopted us! Our garden is enclosed (as long as you remember to shut the gates) so is dog friendly. We can arrange the necessary trip to the vets prior to your departure from Vacheroy. 

Vacheroy is a non smoking property.

Bath towels, hand towels, tea towels & all bed linen (Duvets, pillows, sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers) are included. (Just bring beach towels for around the pool or days out to the beach)
