La Surprise comprises of three Boutique Gites, Le Boulangerie (sleeps 4), La Grenier (sleeps 2) and Le Grange (sleeps 2). All are decorated in a simple French style, which is in perfect harmony with the lovely features of these renovated Gites.
All Gites have their own private ensuite facilities and separate modern, fully equipped kitchens. Each Gite can be booked separately, or together.
Whilst at La Surprise why not relax in the gardens beside the lovely swimming pool which overlooks some stunning countryside.
La Boulangerie is a detached, single-storey self-contained Gite which has been converted to a very high standard (Max. Occupancy 4 adults, no pets)
The entrance is via its own garden area complete with barbecue, covered dining area and with table seating for 6 people.
Internally the accommodation provides 2 bedrooms, 1 double and one with 2 single beds. Both have an abundance of original features, beams galore and hand polished reclaimed old flagstones.
The stunning shower room is in the old pigeonnier section and is finished in Italian marble; the fittings are all Victorian complete with retro walk in shower. There is also a separate WC/washroom.
The large hallway leads to the lounge and kitchen. The lounge is equipped with comfortable chairs and sofas around the large oak fireplace and wood burner, featuring the old bread oven. One area provides dining and seating for up to 6 people.
The kitchen is fitted out to a high standard and consists of dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, gas hob, electric oven, farmhouse sink, and a large fridge freezer. A cool box and ice blocks are provided for picnics and shopping.
La Grenier is a semi-detached, two storey Gite which is completely self-contained. Once again it has been converted to a very high standard (Max. Occupancy 2 adults, no pets).
The entrance is via its own garden area complete with barbecue and private outside covered dining area which features a table with seating for 4 people.
Internally the accommodation provides 1 large double bedroom, alongside an abundance of original features including hand polished reclaimed old flagstones.
A new hand-made kitchen dinner has been fitted this year, with lovely hand finished oak tops, and a wealth of units painted with subtle Farrow and Ball traditional colours.
The kitchen is full equipped with new fridge, new washing machine, dishwasher and microwave together with comfortable chairs and sofas around the large oak fireplace and wood burner.
Upstairs is the beautiful large master bedroom with private en suite shower room, again finished in Italian marble tiles.
The accommodation shares the nearby 10 x 5 metre swimming pool (depths 1 metre to 2 metres) with the owners and the second Gite. The pool is spotlessly cleaned by the owners daily and poolside loungers and cushions are provided.
For most of your holiday, most guests go out to explore the local area, visit the markets etc, so you may well find that you have the pool just to yourselves.
The pool has an easy large walk in step end, and is surrounded by paving and large grass areas. Ample sun loungers are provided for everyone and special poolside crockery and glasses.
Le Grange (our new addition):
To add to the La Surprise Boutique Gites collection, La Grange Gite (the Barn) has been tastefully converted to accommodate two guests.
It includes a lovely lounge, brand new kitchen and dining area, brand new appliances, including eye level oven, hob, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine and has been beautifully finished for the new season.
Separately, is a great double bedroom with views over the surrounding countryside and a brand new private en suite bathroom including a new tiled shower room, WC and basin. The only guests you will see most days, are the deer graving outside from your bedroom and lounge windows.
The Gite has a great space, all on one level, with the old beams that have been carefully renovated to give a lovely tall, airy and spacious accommodation for a holiday gite, that is south facing and flooded with the sun from morning til dusk.
It includes satellite English TV, internet, wifi and some very tasteful decor to complete this Boutique Gite.
