Forsythia Cottage Gite Charente

Forsythia Cottage Gite Charente



Forsythia Gite is a two bedroomed cottage which sleeps up to four people. It is the larger of the two gites available for rental, taking up 65 square metres, and stands apart from other surrounding buildings.

Forsythia is an attractive detached cottage dating from the late Eighteenth century and was lovingly restored, renovated and modernised in 2010. Forsythia cottage retains many of its original features which have carefully preserved its original character, both inside and out, while enhancing the rustic French charm of the place.

Access to Forsythia Gite is directly from the lovely garden area. From the sunny outdoors, visitors come into a spacious open plan lounge and dining area, with an open plan kitchen which has been cleverly designed to make maximum use of the space available for optimum family use.

These open plan areas are all tastefully decorated and furnished. While retaining the visual impact of many of the original features, the property is very well insulated and double glazed throughout.

The restoration of Forsythia Gite has been careful to preserve the insulation benefits, which older properties tend to have; thus it is cool in the summer months and warm in the winter. Also, a very efficient and attractive log burner makes this gite a particularly ideal winter holiday retreat. After exploring the ground floor the visitor will climb the attractive open plan pine staircase, which leads to the landing on the first floor, and from here the two bedrooms are accessible.

In the cool of the evening, subtle lighting enhances the gite with an air of tranquility and effortless calm, creating a rather different atmosphere to this family gite than is apparent during the day.

The main guest bedroom is attractively furnished and its furnishings and curtains are set off by a beautiful original stone wall containing several original features. Also off the first floor landing, directly adjacent to the main bedroom, is the second bedroom, a twin, which also has an original stone wall and features. It, too, is attractively appointed and furnished.

Also off the landing is a fully fitted large shower room and toilet, with electric towel rail, providing ample facilities for the whole family.


On leaving Forsythia Gite the visitor has access to a courtyard and will find the family sized swimming pool (measuring 5 x 10 metres) surrounded by a large, paved sun terrace which overlooks the extensive garden. A WC and shower are accessible right next to the pool, as well as a fridge for storing poolside drinks and snacks.

The garden of the property stretches from the courtyard and past the pool to a walled garden, opening up to the rear of the cottage and revealing a small orchard, vegetable patch and hen house.
