                    [post_content] => La Maison Granit was built around 1800. Many original features have been retained, such as a stone fireplace, and beams, and it is now furnished and equipped with your comfort in mind. We hope you will enjoy the mod-cons we provide such as satellite TV, DVD player (and DVDs), wi.fi, and Ipod docks.

The ground floor accommodation is open plan and consists of:-
A dining area with a large table and chairs for 6 people.
A fully equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, electric cooker, microwave, kettle, cafetiere, toaster and iron; assorted pans, knives, and utensils; plenty of glasses, cutlery, crockery and mugs. On our travels over the years, we have stayed in many holiday cottages, and have quite often got frustrated to find things 'missing'. We hope you will think we have thought of everything; if in doubt, please ask to see the full list, and no, of course we haven't forgotten a tea-pot! There will be an initial supply of tea, coffee, sugar, essential seasonings and oil to start you off.
A lounge area with two comfy sofas, centred around the stone fire-place, with wood burning stove, TV and DVD player, and bookshelves with books and DVDs.
Door to to private rear garden, with rotary line, patio furniture, BBQ, and access to further gardens and field.
On the 1st floor, there is one double bedroom, one twin bedded room and a family bathroom with washing machine, shower, bath, w.c, and handbasin.
On the 2nd floor, you will find the master bedroom, complete with en-suite bathroom with bath, handbasin and w.c.
For our younger guests, there are lots of lovely books and DVDs just for you!

A welcome pack containing a selection of local goodies such as cheese, wine, and seasonal fruits will be waiting for you on arrival.

We provide all bed linen, towels and tea towels, but not beach/swimming towels. A cot (with bedding), high chair and bed guards are available; please let us know when booking if you should require them.
A small supplement will be made for heating through the colder months.

                    [post_content] => Le Mas is a characterful farmhouse and a perfect home from home, full of original beams, fireplaces and thick stone walls. It is currently being renovated and will be available from Easter 2016. The photos show the house pre-renovation.

Kitchen and living-room
The large well-equipped kitchen (60m²) is the centre of the house, great for family meals where 12 people can sit comfortably around the table. The exposed stone walls show the history of the house, with a centuries-old larder and a stone evier (basin).
The terracotta floor tiles lead to the living room (48m²), which like the kitchen has exposed beams, an enormous fireplace with a wood burner (wood provided) and doors leading outside. There are comfortable sofas and chairs, and plenty of games and books to enjoy.
If you want to catch up on the news or watch a film there is a flat screen satellite TV with English channels.

5 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms
Two bedrooms are on the ground floor at opposite ends of the house, each with two single beds en suite bathrooms with showers. One of these bedrooms is wheelchair accessible. The other three bedrooms are accessed via two staircases. The first staircase leads to a double-aspect bedroom and en suite bathroom with shower. The main staircase goes from the kitchen up to the two large gabled master bedrooms (56m² and 50m²).

The master bedrooms have wooden floors, beautiful original beams and are light and bright. Windows have views to the fields and woods beyond, being the perfect lookout for deer, kestrels and wild boars. Both master bedrooms have large en suite bathrooms with showers and baths.

Outside
Opposite the kitchen is the covered summer kitchen (80m²). Originally a barn, it still retains the roof but is partly open on three sides, affording you shade and a cool breeze. There is a small kitchen area with sink, fridge and a Weber 3 burner gas barbeque (gas provided). A large dining table, 12 chairs and comfortable seating make it the perfect setting for long lunches, escaping the sun or spending time together late into the night.

There are games to play in the garden, and the pool to enjoy. The 9 x 4 meter pool has a deep and a shallow end, with steps down into the water for easy access (no awkward ladder). It's positioned to take in the view over the fields and woods beyond, so lie back on the sun-loungers and enjoy it! If you are seeking solitude there are several private spots in the garden. The pool is not heated, and for that reason is closed from November to April.

Outside
Set in rural farmland of over four acres, La Lohuas has a several discreet outside areas within it's boundaries. Each with it's own attraction and character.

The most popular with children is the fenced and secure play area, which has been designed to ensure that children can “let their hair down” without disturbing the other guests. Here we have a huge open-fronted barn with children's toys, sandpit and a table tennis table. An ideal distraction if ever it rains, but with the added bonus of being shaded from the sun on the hottest of days. Next to the barn is a large lawned area with a 14 foot trampoline, swings, slide, see-saw and football and badminton nets.

There are gardens with a croquet lawn, a hammock suspended under the walnut trees and a little walk behind the chicken pen takes you down to our woodland fairy grotto, where you can listen to the birds singing and the babbling brook.  There is a little stream at the bottom with a bridge, where you can play “pooh-sticks”.

Workshops are run in a relaxed way and delivered with a step by step guide. Demonstrations by Linda lead the way for you to have a go. You will learn many new skills by developing your own project. Class samples to look at are available to give you ideas and help take the mystery out of how to do certain techniques.

Curtains and blinds are small samples but fully operational and Linda gives great insight into the hardware and use of soft furnishing accessories. All the items you make can be taken home and used as a reference for your own projects alongside the class hand out and your own notes. You will gather a huge amount of professional hints and tips along the way and ideas for when you return home. It's easy when you know how!

All participants will be issued with a Ciseaux Certificate of Attendance.
Course Dates for 2014 are weeks commencing 8th June, 6th July, 20th September and 18th October 2014

We offer a safe and peaceful environment in which to enjoy an affordable self catering family holiday in rural France. With other toddlers and young children for yours to play with and an enclosed garden and safely enclosed swimming pool you will be able to relax with a chilled glass of wine chatting to like minded parents whilst your children
make new friends.

Ruche Gite sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms and is mirror image of its neighbour Horloge Gite. They were originally one large barn with huge wooden doors, for the storage of hay in the 18th century and more recently, farm equipment. We split the barn in to two - each approximately 6m by 6m. Each has a spacious open plan ground floor with living and dining areas and a kitchen area.

The open tread, cast iron, spiral staircases lead to the first floor which have 2 twin rooms and a double.

They both have open terrace areas to the front and rear with charcoal barbecues at the rear. Two families together may like to let these two as there is a space between the two which may be used to put tables together and eat as one large group. The bathrooms each have a bath with shower attachment, basin and toilet and plenty of hot water and good pressure. Old beehives and an old grandfather clock case were found in the old barn, hence the names Ruche and Horloge.

            [post_content] => La Maison Granit was built around 1800. Many original features have been retained, such as a stone fireplace, and beams, and it is now furnished and equipped with your comfort in mind. We hope you will enjoy the mod-cons we provide such as satellite TV, DVD player (and DVDs), wi.fi, and Ipod docks.

The ground floor accommodation is open plan and consists of:-
A dining area with a large table and chairs for 6 people.
A fully equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, electric cooker, microwave, kettle, cafetiere, toaster and iron; assorted pans, knives, and utensils; plenty of glasses, cutlery, crockery and mugs. On our travels over the years, we have stayed in many holiday cottages, and have quite often got frustrated to find things 'missing'. We hope you will think we have thought of everything; if in doubt, please ask to see the full list, and no, of course we haven't forgotten a tea-pot! There will be an initial supply of tea, coffee, sugar, essential seasonings and oil to start you off.
A lounge area with two comfy sofas, centred around the stone fire-place, with wood burning stove, TV and DVD player, and bookshelves with books and DVDs.
Door to to private rear garden, with rotary line, patio furniture, BBQ, and access to further gardens and field.
On the 1st floor, there is one double bedroom, one twin bedded room and a family bathroom with washing machine, shower, bath, w.c, and handbasin.
On the 2nd floor, you will find the master bedroom, complete with en-suite bathroom with bath, handbasin and w.c.
For our younger guests, there are lots of lovely books and DVDs just for you!

A welcome pack containing a selection of local goodies such as cheese, wine, and seasonal fruits will be waiting for you on arrival.

We provide all bed linen, towels and tea towels, but not beach/swimming towels. A cot (with bedding), high chair and bed guards are available; please let us know when booking if you should require them.
A small supplement will be made for heating through the colder months.
