LA CABRETTEA rural gîte
Welcome to this cosy little gîteThe red clay render and the exposed wooden roof frame gives this gîte an atmosphere that is warm and inviting. You can use the large wooden terrace, with a superb view over the valley , a tapestry of hedged fields. The gîte has one bedroom, with a double bed connecting to a large, airy living room. Thus you can enjoy the birdsong in the mornings alongside your luxurious breakfast. For big family holidays (cousins, friends) you can hire both our gîtes together: La Cabrette (3-4 people) and La Gatinelle (6-8 people) at a reduced price. Don’t hesitate to ask us.
A quality gîte with the green ‘eco’ labelWe wanted to offer a quality gîte, 3 stars, with ratings which match our values - “Rural welcome” and “Tourism for the Handicapped”. We also wanted to share our interest in environmental conservation (in the barn we’ve installed a dryer which works from solar power, and 300m2 of photovoltaic panels). When we renovated the gîte we respected its origins and we used green materials, for example, wood wool insulation, lime, hemp and clay render, exterior cladding in local wood. We have put in place systems to limit the consumption of electricity and water and to reduce rubbish (water butts, automatic boiler using woodchips produced on the farm and a recycling system). The gîte has been given the European Eco label and received the prize of Best Tourist Gîte in 2015 in Deux-Sèvres.
A gîte in a conservation area, near to famous attractionsOur farm, with its hedge lined fields, 5 acres of woods and lakes, and its old style buildings full of character, mentioned in the local plans as buildings worthy of the heritage label, offers you a calm setting for your stay. You are deep in the countryside, able to watch the daily activities of the farm which has been run on green principles for the last 30 years. Denis and his brother Claude raise goats and turn their milk into cheeses, which they sell at the local markets, in Paris and in Germany. They are delighted to share their experiences with you. You will also be close to superb destinations. Parthenay is 5km away (a medieval old town), Puy de Fou, Marais Poitevin, La Rochelle, the Vendée beaches, Futuroscope….. Near the gîte you can obviously visit the farm and Brigitte’s workshop (the Raku pottery) but also rent our bikes or fish. A large ‘no-kill’ lake (2 hectares) stocked by professionals (carp, pike, tench, zander, perch, black bass, roach, sturgeon) is next door to our farm. You can get there on foot from the gîte by taking a pretty path through the woods. You can also take part in nature workshops, run by our neighbour. All the information is on our website. You will have to choose because there are lots of activities, visits and walks in the area.
