La Martinière Gîtes

Each gîte in our newly renovated barn is for two people and both are around 60m2, each over two floors. Downstairs is an open plan sitting room, dining area and kitchen and a wood burner. Stairs lead to the underfloor heated bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom. The bedrooms have vaulted ceilings with exposed oak beams. To enable you to have a fantastic night’s sleep each bedroom has a Super King-size bed. For a twin room arrangement, the bed can split to create 2 single beds.( Please let us know if you would prefer this option) Although the building has been renovated to create modern accommodation, we have maintained the characteristics of the old barn with original elements being recycled and renovated to become features.

 

Outside there is a patio terrace for you to enjoy breakfast or an evening drink.  A garden with sun decking is also available if you would like to soak up the sun, where a barbecue is available for guests to cook on. When the temperature drops we have a fire pit for you to sit around and enjoy the tranquility under the stars.
