GITE HOLIDAYS IN Poitou-Charentes
Les Glycines (sleeps 2-8)
THE POOL & GROUNDS
WELCOME TO OUR CLIMATE & LOCATION
Poitou-Charentes is claimed to be the second sunniest region in France, and yes, we do get a great number of gloriously sunny days here with beautiful clear blue skies.
There are between 2000 and 2600 hours of sunshine each year with an average rainfall over the summer period at approximately 2/3rds of the UK.
Statistics aside, it is the afternoons and the evenings that are particularly warm and clear - just right for relaxing al fresco.
In Spring we enjoy the freshness of the countryside and the beautiful chorus of Birdsong. Summer can be hot - but we have plenty of shade and our lovely Pool to cool down in. The Autumn is usually very warm, bright and dry - with small Butterflies still feeding on the Wild Thyme in late October . All year round, you will enjoy the truly peaceful surroundings and our rich wildlife.
Our location in this beautiful rural environment, is an ideal base for exploring the area, whether holidaying or house-hunting.
Within an hour's radius you can access the Atlantic Coast, Futuroscope, Poitiers and Puy du Fou.
Within half an hour you can reach the cities of Niort, Parthenay, the beautiful 'Green Venice' of the Marias Poitevin, Vouvant and the Mervent Forest,
Even closer, there are adventure parks, lakeside beaches with pedalos and kayaking, karting,horseriding,Pescalis the huge fishing complex, and , importantly ,a number of good restaurants.
There are many glorious walks on our very doorstep!
