Our 4 bed, 3 bath gite Le Chai, constructed from the old winery section of the outbuildings has undergone the same sympathetic reconstruction as its sister L'Ecurie. The ground floor of around 80m2 is open plan around the central woodburner (for those cooler evenings) so that conversation can continue while the meals are prepared. The entrance area is open to the eaves, some 7 metres in height giving space and light.
The oak kitchen is comprehensively equipped comprising a 5 gas burner 90cm range cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, large capacity American fridge freezer with icemaker and just about every utensil you need to prepare your meal along with ADSL access and Wifi.
In the salon area, you will find English and French Satellite tv, dvd and quality cd player.
French doors open onto the riverside terrace with barbeque and teak garden furniture with comfortable sofas.
Continuing our tour on the first floor, the riverside master suite comprises a 160cm wide solid wood four poster bed with antique furniture and an en-suite shower room with massage shower cubicle.
The second double features a 160cm iron four poster bed, television and en-suite shower room with massage shower cubicle.
The whole of the upstairs is floored in solid chestnut parquet.
The two twin bedrooms share a house bathroom with a corner bath.
All bedrooms have a wardrobe, chest of drawers and bed-side tables with lights.
The bedroom arrangements make Le Chai ideal for two families with children.
