Le Chai is a gite which lends itself perfectly to a family of three or four and also to couples looking for something a little bit "special". It is situated in the lower section of the main mill building and is all at ground floor level with a level tiled floor throughout. Le Chai was custom-designed as holiday or longer term accommodation and so has all the facilities you would expect as well as the charm and authenticity of a suberb Charentais stone-built dwelling. To complete the picture, it has it's own privately enclosed terrace, with barbecue, overlooking the river Chazotte and into the woods beyond. Access: Car parking for the gîte is right alongside the terrace with a designated parking spot.
The bedroom: There is a large family bedroom which has a double bed and a pair of full-sized bunk beds in a separate curtained annexe. The window looks out over the mill-races and into the woods at the rear of the watermill. The lounge: The lounge has a comfortable three-piece suite and coffee table. There is a tv set with both French terrestrial and free-to-view satellite channels. There is also a cd player and a library of books and games. The kitchen: The kitchen is small but perfectly formed! It is fully-fitted and equipped to a very high standard. There is a fridge with a small freezer compartment (if you intend to stock up with a lot of frozen food or ice-creams during your stay, then you might like to use store some of it in one of our freezers). The cooker is electric and has a full-sized oven. There is a sink with a double drainer, a microwave,a toaster and a coffee-machine. You can see the layout in the picture above although that doesn't show the arched window with it's view out towards the river. The dining area: The dining table and four chairs are set up to the side of the lounge area. The bathroom: The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, a vanity unit, a toilet and a washing machine in it's own alcove. Additional information: There is a large folder with leaflets and information about the area and things to do. For off-season lets, Le Chai has full central-heating, an electric "wood-burning" fire and is fully double-glazed with hardwood windows and doors.
