Lots of Cycling to do !

Local cycle routes marked out - full information here:   

We have a folder available onsite with all the local routes printed out for you to browse through.

If you are a more experienced cyclist looking for a longer ride or are having a cycling holiday - we are enroute for these:

New link to check availability and book online

I am trialing this link and site to try to make it quicker and easier for bookings and confirmations - hoping to then implement online card payments to pay the deposit and balance online if it generates enough interest.

Meet the new 'team' members!

Meet Bonnie & Clyde - brother and sister who we acquired at the end of August 2016 from a rescue centre.  They were both abandoned at the side of the road in a cardboard box.  We think they were a couple of months old when we got them, but it is all a guessing game!  They are labrador cross, but we aren't sure what they are crossed with!  They are looking forward to meeting all our new guests in the future - they love to play ball.  Log onto our Tranquille Vienne Gites facebook page to get a weekly update on their progress.


Unfortunately, we are one team member down for 2016 - we lost Troy towards the end of 2015.  We will miss him playing with the children and entertaining guests by chasing the birds!

New Pool / Nouveau Piscine 2015 - 9.15m x 5m

Our Chabanais and Rochechouart Gites have been approved by Gites de France since 2010

They were both re-assessed in 2015.  From 2020 we will no longer advertise with Gites de France and will get our gites reclassified with the Office de Tourism.

We now have a full sized Table Tennis table, situated in our hangar to escape the heat of the sun during the summer months.

Fishing - there are many local places to fish here; and we have a very good english friend who is available to take you out to show you the best places to fish and hire fishing tackle if required.  

Washing machine available and shared between the 3 gites (detergent available)
