The Farmhouse

The Gite

This traditional stone Farmhouse was once the heart of a working farm, in the beautiful village of Dampierre-sur-Boutonne. It dates back to the early 1800s. It is the largest of the three gites at La Petite Ferme Gites, with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms & sleeps 6 people.

The front door enters into a cosy living room with sofa, chairs, TV, coffee tables and a small dining table with 6 chairs. This room opens into the large and fully equipped kitchen containing all the equipment and utensils you should need during your stay including oven, hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and coffee machine. There is a working fireplace in the kitchen, that can be used in the cooler months.
Off the kitchen is the downstairs bedroom with a king size bed and en-suite shower room. The stairs lead up from the kitchen to the first floor where there are two further bedrooms. The largest one having a superking size bed, a single bed and a cot. The other has two single beds. All three bedrooms have wardrobes and drawer space, bedside tables and bedside lights. The second shower room is off the upstairs corridor.

Directly outside the front door is a lovely large, private, gravelled courtyard with a table and chairs under a gazebo as well as a rattan sofa with cushions and a BBQ. A great location for eating, relaxing and socialising with plenty of room for sun loungers.
