Little Cottage France

Little Cottage in France

Built over a hundred years ago, our little cottage offers you an authentic taste of life in rural France. Cosy and comfortable, set amongst the glorious rolling countryside of the Vienne in South West France, our well-equipped cottage has all you need for a perfect holiday. Well behaved dogs are welcome, and there is plenty to see and do, whatever your interests.

The cottage is situated in the hamlet of Le Puynard, close to the charming village of Sommieres Du Clain, in the Vienne region of South West France. The cottage is at the end of a small lane, leading to tracks which run up through the fields, perfect for dog-walking, cycling or hiking. We welcome up to two well-behaved dogs by prior arrangement.

The cottage is a 10 minute walk from the village, where you can find a grocers, boulangerie, pharmacy, bar tabac, restaurant, hairdressers and doctors surgery. A 15 minute drive will take you to the market town of Civray, with its weekly market, supermarkets, veterinary surgery, and a large range of shops and restaurants.

PLEASE NOTE - the cottage is situated in the middle of a working farm, with farm buildings and machinery close by, and all the ambiance you would expect from this! Dogs must be kept under strict control at all times please.

"Just spent a very pleasant few days at Ruth's cosy, rural cottage.Lots of bird life and the interest of being amidst a working farm. Thank you for a very comfortable break. Trisha,John and Fada the Dog." Trisha Hurford

"Ruth very kindly allowed us to rent 'Little Cottage France' out of season....March, to be exact! Reason...a house huntin...g trip. Hubby, me and our dog spent an enjoyable week .... It was perfect for our base to explore the Poitou Charentes. The cottage is very comfortable and fully equipped with everything we needed. Love the shower! Secure garden meant that we could let our dog have a wander around, knowing that he couldn't escape. Easy walk to the village and lovely walks all around. A big thank you to Ruth!" Jane Horne.
