The Gardens, Swimming Pool and Games Room
Les Girouteaux – There are 4 acres of lovely well maintained garden providing the perfect environment for those seeking peace and tranquility.
The gardens are south facing and are laid mainly to grass excellent for football and running off steam. You can enjoy sun all day whilst relaxing . Each gite has a private outside eating area, in sun or in shade. There is the river area to explore, and a small brook runs all the way through the gardens.
At the side of the gites there are ample room to park several cars. This is an ideal location for those who enjoy nature in unspoilt surroundings. You can play in the garden, read in the shade or sit under the parasols with a drink. There is a rich variety of flora and fauna – we see many different birds including eagles and there are toads, badgers, lizards, wild deer and rabbits. Just Lovely !!!

The swimmming pool is well sited in the south facing garden and enjoys full sun throughout the day. Surrounding the pool is a wooden sun deck with plenty of sunloungers for soaking up the beautiful sunshine. There are also tables, chairs and parasols for cooling drinks. The pool has stunning views of the surrounding countryside and gardens of the gite and looks down towards the river at the bottom of the hill. There is a raised toddler splash pool for fun with the little ones. The swimming pool is open from May to September.
The childrens play area has a trampoline with safety net and swings. We also have a Pirate Ship, a play house and a full size table tennis table . There is a Information/Play barn with a pool table, table football and other games to keep children and young people occupied. The gardens a large enough for a football or cricket match.
