gîtes equipment and facilities

Many guests comment on all the equipment and facilities within each gîtes.

We try to supply all that you might require whilst staying with us at La Martinière.

Unlike some gîtes we supply all bed linen and towels. There are no unexpected surcharges for final cleaning, electricity etc.

Our only extras are any meals you have and for extra panniers of fire wood.
