The house

  • Quiet, built-up area with some traffic

Welcome to Les Hirondelles - a detached, 3-star-accredited, spacious and comfortable barn conversion
4 Good Size Bedrooms – Comfortably Sleeps 8 people plus 2 Infants in Cots
The three double (super-king) beds can each be split to make twin singles, so your accommodation can be adapted to your needs, whether an extended family, couples, or singles who don't mind sharing a room. Longer people have said how they appreciate these 200cm long beds.
Great for walking, cycling or other interest groups.
Bedroom 1 (superking) is upstairs and has its own built-in bathroom, with shower, basin and WC. This room also has an air conditioning unit and a ceiling fan for those hot summer nights.
Bedroom 2 (superking) is next to the main bathroom, which has a full-size bath with shower over, a large basin and a WC.
Bedrooms 3 and 4 share a bathroom with shower, basin and WC.
All bedrooms are equipped with wardrobes and drawers for clothes and belongings and various fans are provided to keep you cool. Hair dryers are also provided along with the bed linen and towels.

The Entrance Hall opens onto bedroom 2, the family bathroom and the lounge, which boasts a full height ceiling with exposed beams and comfortable seating around the TV, DVD and huge woodburner (for those cooler weather stays).

This open plan room is also home to a dining area and games space with pool table, table tennis, darts, babyfoot and a mini hifi with large selection of CDs - you can also play your own music if you bring a 3.5mm jack cable.

Around the corner from the games area is the all-important kitchen, with ovens, hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster and all the pots, pans and other essentials for your eating and drinking needs. A door leads to the utility room with washing machine and storage for outdoor furniture - this space can also be used for safe storage of bicycles and equipment.

So now you've explored the accommodation, you'll want to head outside.

Doors from the games space lead out to the main terrace and enclosed garden. One half of this large terrace includes a covered and illuminated dining area, with a charcoal-fuelled bbq (we provide some fuel to get you started).

A lockable gate leads to the side garden with swimming pool - a 10x5m salt water (unheated) pool with roman steps, exclusive to the gîte.
There is a solar-heated poolside shower and separate pool towels are provided.
When not swimming, or to keep an eye on the youngsters, there is a decking area with poolside gazebo and furniture with open countryside views.
You will also find a herb garden, which you are welcome to raid for the kitchen or bbq.

On arrival, you will find that the driveway offers off-street parking for up to 3 medium-sized cars.

The gîte receives a full clean in between each booking and spare linen and towels are available on request for longer stays. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets.

Les Hirondelles is situated in a small village, near the church, the Mairie and the community hall, which is used for occasional events and may be available to hire, should you wish. Please note that on the rare occasion there may be some noise from the hall, which is nearby.

From the pool area, you will have lovely views of rolling hills and farm land, with birds of prey to entertain you.

Just Off the D708, midway between Duras (N) and Marmande (S), we are ideally placed for further exploration or to just relax.

    We spent the best two weeks of our summer of 2021 in Gite les Hirondelles. The house is lovely with everything we needed. Matt and Pauline were very friendly and helpful. The kids loved the pool and all the games. Lots to do in the area for both adults and children. We loved the market in Duras and had lots of fun in the adventure park, climbing in the trees. We recommend staying here!
