FACILITIES

SWIMMING POOL

There is a large 12m x 5m heated swimming pool newly installed in 2016, with space for sunbathing and relaxing.  The pool has a statutory alarm.

GARDENS

The farmhouse and cottages are set in 3 acres of gardens, with planted beds, fruit trees and vegetable patch. Each cottage has its own garden with barbecue area.

 

A children’s play area with swings and slide adjoins the pool. We also have table tennis and outdoor games available. 

WALKS FROM LEMONIE

There are several circular woodland and riverside walks from Lemonie. A 10 minute walk down a country lane takes you to the slow-flowing river Dronne where fishing is permitted. A walk along the river takes you past a picturesque chateau and weir, where there is a picnic area and you can even swim in the river.

 

The village of Les Essards is a 25 minute walk away.  

BAR

A dedicated bar area, equipped with dartboard and karaoke machine overlooks the gardens. Next to the bar is a fully-functional traditional bread oven which we use for pizza nights.

PETANQUE  

We have a full-size court to let you try your hand at this traditional sport of French ‘boules’.

 

CYCLING

We are on one of the many cycling routes that criss-cross this region. A 10-minute ride takes you to the nearby small towns of St Aulaye or Bonnes. There are bicycles that you may borrow.

FOOD

The cottages are self-catering, but we are also happy to offer a menu of fresh home-cooked family meals should you choose not to cook any night. Weekly home-made pizza night, using the bread oven is also available.
