Les Chapelles Amenities

Les Chapelles Amenities

Sunshine, sandy beaches, a stunning indoor pool and horses in the paddock - it’s easy to see why the owners of No. 11, Les Chapelles have fallen in love with the place! With fantastic features like the large, lawned play area, which is all part and parcel of the family ethos of sharing their good life with others. This also means the gîtes are well geared up for babies and toddlers.

The owners’ house, or ‘maison de maître’, is somewhere between 125 and 200 years old, with a number of ancient outbuildings which they have transformed into a 3 bedroom gîte (Le Cadran Solaire), a 2-bedroom gîte (La Cachette) and a funky indoor pool designed by a local architect. The gîtes are a modern and minimalist take on the traditional buildings and the owners have tried to equip them with everything needed for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

The living rooms are large and comfortable, with wood-burning stoves, satellite TV and DVD players and the modern fitted kitchen are well equipped, from coffee machines, dishwashers and microwaves to the range cooker and double Belfast style sink in Le Cadran. The bedrooms are smart and contemporary, with feature wall decor and big comfy beds, plus there’s a classic slipper bath in Le Cadran for parents to enjoy an indulgent soak.

Les Chapelles is set in 3.5 acres of land, some of which is a paddock for the horses but mostly providing plenty of space for children to play with the ride-ons, discover the mini tree house and clamber over the large climbing frame with slide. Le Cadran also has a private shaded dining terrace and lawn, while La Cachette has a sunny patio, both with barbecues for eating outdoors and catching some rays. Everyone will love the fab indoor pool, with walls of glass doors that open onto the outdoor sun terrace overlooking the lawn, so parents can chill out while the children burn off some energy.

Accommodation Overview - La Cachette

La Cachette (The Hiding Place) is the smaller of the two guest gites at Les Chapelles. It is a first floor apartment, set within a 200 year old barn. It sleeps four people, plus a baby in a cot, in two good-sized bedrooms - one with double bed and one with twin beds. The gîte has a large living room and separate kitchen diner. There’s a pretty terrace with furniture for outdoor dining. Both gites have ovens, hobs, fridge freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, microwave ovens, coffee machines, English-language satellite TV, DVD players and barbecues.
