Other facilities include a hoover, wash basket, pegs and clothes airer. A child gate is available and can be mounted at the top of the stairs upon request. A baby pack is available, free of charge, but must be reserved at time of booking as we only have one set of everything - it includes a travel cot, high chair/booster seat and changing mat.

There are two gites situated next to each other - each has their own garden area with barbecue, teak garden furniture and rotary clothes dryer. There is shared parking behind the gites and a large shared courtyard in front of them. For privacy and security, the outdoor pool, large covered terrace with WC/changing and games area are set within the walls of an old barn situated across the courtyard. The 8m x 4m in-ground pool, picnic tables, sun-loungers, games and sports facilities are shared with one other gite. The pool is open May to September, weather permitting. There’s a selection of bikes covering most ages, two tandems, a tag-along bike and two child seats. Basket ball and tennis/badminton nets, table football, table skittles, darts, swingball and a selection of bats and balls.

The wireless internet access allows guests to surf our website and the net for things to see and do locally. We live on site and are happy to help out with further information or bookings for activities etc as we want the holiday to be fun and relaxing for everyone. We particularly enjoy walking and running and can help you find your way around the pretty rolling countryside with a combination of maps and arm waving!

“Le Tiolet Gites” are set in an acre of grounds, in small hamlet, amid rolling countryside, 1.5km from the village of Benest with bakers shop, bar/restaurant, Post Office and tennis court. There are a greater range of shops and services at Champagne Mouton (7km) and at Confolens, Civray and Ruffec (23km). In addition to the natural treasures of the great outdoors, the area is home to many Gallo Roman sites. Extensive details of sightseeing, activities, shopping and eating out are available on our website.

Car hire/use of a car is essential. Major centres of Poitiers to the north, Limoges to the east and Angouleme to the south all have an airport, and are an hour away from us. We are half an hour away from the RN10 at Ruffec, a major road route that runs from north to south. Using the toll motorways (péages) we are 4.5 hrs from Caen and San Malo and 6.5 hrs from Boulogne, Calais and Dunkerque. The TGV, high speed train stops at Poitiers, Angouleme, Limoges and Ruffec. Further details on travel available on our website.

Bedding and tea-towels are provided.
A set of towels (comprising 1 hand towel and 1 bath towel) can be hired for 5 Euros per set.
An initial supply of household and cupboard items is provided, but you will need to purchase additional supplies yourselves. These items include toilet rolls, bin bags, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, washing up liquid, salt, pepper, tea, coffee and sugar.
The cost of central heating is not included, but can be provided at a cost of 10 Euros per night, per gite - we require advance notice of this.
In our opinion, the fire in La Laiterie warms the accommodation well and wood for the fire is included in the price of reservations for stays from October through to April.
We have two small to medium size, friendly and playful dogs - they are not allowed in the gites or pool area. As a general rule they are kept away from the guest areas although some of our regular guests have asked to and subsequently enjoyed throwing the ball for them. We will respect our guests' wishes.

Dès notre arrivée, l'accueil d'Yvette et John fut très chaleureux. Le cadre du gîte est agréable et très paisible, en retrait par rapport au village ce qui procure un calme royal, mais tout en étant très proche de moult villes et activités à faire dans la région. Sur place : les jeux, les vélos, la piscine, sont un réel avantage pour les familles avec enfants. Et leurs chiens ont fait passés de très bon moment également à nos enfants. A faire et à refaire sans hésiter ! Encore merci à vous pour ces vacances mémorables...

Merci de votre conseil dont nous avons besoin d’ajouter quelques photos pour mieux mettre en valeur l’hébergement. Nous sommes très heureux que vous avez apprécié votre séjour, ayant réussi à explorer la région et aussi d’avoir profité de la piscine, les vélos, les chiens et les autres choses d’ici. Ce fut un plaisir de faire votre connaissance et nous serions très heureux de vous voir dans l’avenir.

Un gîte très bien équipé, tout ce qu'il faut pout une famille du plus petit (bébé) au plus grand (parents). Un endroit très au calme au milieu de la campagne. Des hôtes présents mais tout autant discret. Merci Yvette.

So pleased you had a good time - I suspect you were ready for the break! It was especially great to see the children "getting stuck in" - we hope to provide a mix of fun things to do and relaxation and it's really satisfying when people make the most of it and enjoy their time here. Best wishes to you all, Yvette

Yvette, John, Kenny & Colin are amazing hosts, Yvette truly does think of everything from providing a powerful hair dryer and extension lead for both European and British plugs, to having the fire roaring after a day's traveling. This is the third time we have stayed in this gite and it never disappoints, there is so much information in the folder in the gite about all the local attractions, walks and eateries. The gite is immaculate, with everything from extra pillows and blankets if required to a fully fitted kitchen with everything you would have at home. The log burner is a real treat on a cold evening, with comfy sofas and footstool to relax on after a day out on the tandum which is provided or walking one of the many routed walks available in the gite information folder. Yvette even arranged for us to go to the local mill to buy flour to take home to make bread. Kenny and Colin the friendly fury guys are always available to play fetch with if you have the stamina to keep up with them, but they are so well behaved that they know they are never allowed in the gite and stay strictly within their garden only venturing over when invited. This time we did not use the pool due to the weather and made more use of the log burner instead, but on a previous visit we made full use of the pool and BBQ area and had great fun with the inflatables and sun terrace. We would recommend this gite and cannot speak highly enough about the cleanliness of it and the attention to detail the hosts have provided. We look forward to our next visit very soon, Thank you Yvette, John, Kenny & Colin for making our stay home from home see you soon Susie & Mark X

Friends and family say I'm thoughtful and helpful - I certainly try to be. I believe in respecting others. I love nature and being active, with a particular passion for running.
I have two holiday properties on AirBnB and both are registered as furnished holiday accommodation with my local Tourist Office.
