1 of 4 Gites with indoor pool in quiet setting
Le Grenier is our luxury Gite with a terracotta tiled floor on the groundfloor and a wood burning fire. There is a lot of exposed timber in this Gite, including some felled from the garden at La Julerie which was used when the Gites were converted from an old farm longhouse in 2002. All of our Gites at La Julerie have an open plan ground floor living area with corner kitchens; when doing the conversion work our son told us he was doing this so that “mums wouldn’t get left in the kitchen working whilst the rest of the family were enjoying themselves!”
|Bedrooms:||On the first floor there are 2 en-suite double bedrooms; one has an en-suite bath, toilet and basin, whilst the other has an en-suite shower toilet and basin; the family bedroom on the upper floor has 2 single beds and a large settee bed which converts into a comfortable double bed. Its en-suite bathroom is everyone's favourite with its French styled stand alone bath with shower attachments (it makes it easier to wash the children's hair), basin, bidet and toilet|
|Bathrooms:||As described above, but there is also a washroom on the groundfloor which has a basin and toilet|
|Kitchen:||There is a full range of electrical equipment including 4 burner hob, oven, microwave, fridge freezer, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, mixer, dishwasher and full extractor fan etc..
|Living Rooms:||All of the gites have an open plan ground floor;this gite has a central staircase with the kitchen and dining area on one side and the salon area with a wood burning stove on the other where there are comfy chairs and settees and also the TV. There is a washroom at the rear of this floor (behind the dining area) where there is a toilet and a basin and also the washing machine and under stair storage space.
|Other Rooms:||Games Room adjoining the indoor swimming pool. This large room has a table tennis table, a seating area, 2 changing rooms with showers and a toilet; there are many toys for younger children including several sit on ones and books for all to read (English and French). If guests book all 4 Gites they are welcome to use this room as a function room, several guests have held their wedding or anniversary receptions in it as there is enough room for up to 40 guests to sit and dine together. They have invariably called upon outside caterers to provide the food (details are available).
The swimming pool is only accessed through this games room for security reasons. The pool is normally heated from Easter until the end of tOctober it has glass covers which are opened during fine weather. The pool is over 9 mtrs long and 4 mtrs wide with a level bottom at a depth of 1.65 metres, deep enough for a proper swim, but parents can still stand and look after their infants who may also be in the pool. The other 3 sides of the pool are enclosed in a walled patio which makes an ideal suntrap where you can lie on a sun lounger and do as little as you like! For safety reasons we do provide some plastic beakers for guest to use when having drinks around the pool as we do not want to risk any glasses getting broken in this area.
|Linen/Cleaning/Towels etc:||Our prices are fully inclusive. All bed linen, bathroom towels, swimming pool towels, kitchen towels, serviettes etc are provided and changed on a weekly basis. We do not charge any exit cleaning fee, but we do ask guests to leave their Gites clean and tidy and we do state that we can withhold part of the security deposit if the Gites are not left in a clean and tidy state. The only extra charge levied will be for any pet (10 euros per day or 40 Euros per week per pet)|
|Outside:||La Julerie is situated in about 1/2 hectare of land, the Gites have lawned area in the front and patios to the rear with wooden furniture and Weber barbeques; beyond these patios there is another area of private lawn, then the garden opens up to an area shared by all of our guests. There is a children's playstation with an elevated playhouse with telescope, flags etc, a slide, swings, a fireman's pole, elsewhere there is a sand pit and another play house for the younger children, a boules court and badminton equipment for all to use.
We have seen many birds at La Julerie and several families of swallows nest above the cycle storage shed each year. At night time you are more likely to hear owls than cars!
|Additional notes (if any):||We have virtually all of the equipment parents need when taking their infants on holiday which means you don’t need bring items from home; besides cots, high chairs and stair barriers we also have a baby changing table, baby bath, bottle sterilising unit, swing chair and baby chair and a listening device etc.; where needed all kitchen cupboards and upstairs windows have locks which are reversible and only need be engaged when infants are in the property. We have also fitted barriers to the patios. Please let us know your requirements when making your booking.
We also have a selection of bicycles which are freely available for guests to use on a daily basis, there are some crash helmets also available
If you wish to cook your own crabs, there are large saucepans in the Gites!
We now have 2 separate lines providing WiFi ensuring full connection in all 4 gites .
