This beautifully converted stone property offers two spacious adjoining gîtes with all the modern conveniences while retaining character features such as exposed stone walls, oak beams and double-height entrance halls. Properties Les Martinets (F79131) and Les Hirondelles (F79132) can be let together by larger groups and both open onto private terraces and a shared ’play’ garden. The English owner lives opposite in the courtyard providing as much or as little help as you wish, and tending to the gardens and pool for those staying in both properties. Chef-Boutonne is a delightful small market town with everything you need if a lazy holiday by the pool is all you seek. There is a great restaurant/bar, a pizzeria, two supermarkets, three boulangeries, a butcher, a newspaper shop, a wine and fresh coffee shop, playgrounds, a fishing lake and even a very French ‘cave des vins’.
