Awesome views, 5 star gite
We had a fabulous time at this superb gite, everything you could wish for and much more. The views are amazing, the facilities in the gite are first class. And finally, the owners were extremely welcoming and friendly.

A property that was just as good as advertised
Our first visit to Gîte d'Artige and we had a really good experience there. The gîte was immaculate in layout and presentation, and extremely well equipped. It is a very spacious property both internally and externally, with lots of room for relaxing, dining and just chilling. The bedrooms again are spacious with excellent en suite facilities. The outside area is complimented by having both a super pool and sunbathing facilities.
The gîte is well situated for exploring the many attractions in the region, and our highlights were visiting the Cité Medieval within the town of Chauvigny and eating delicious galettes in the square, exploring the town of Angles sur Anglin and having a great dinner at Le Lion d'Or restaurant in Chauvigny itself.

First thing to note is that we were only the third people to rent this property so although the building is over 100 years old it has been completely refurbished. Everything is brand new. The renovation has been very tastefully done. Kitchen is modern, living area is open plan and upstairs are 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 twin). All 3 bedrooms have their own ensuites. Flat screen TV has English freeview and a large selection of DVDs. House has all mod cons including dishwasher, washing machine, etc, etc. The house is one of a small group. The owners live nearby and are lovely people. Outside is a great pool with a cover that you can swim under if it's a bit cooler. There is also an eating area and also outside sofas, chairs etc. The pool etc isn't overlookd by anyone else - wheat fields all around the back and side of the house. The local area is very quiet - in a good way! Lots of quiet small roads for walks or cycling. Saint Savin is a quaint small town with a few restaurants, bars and of course the famous abbey. Further afield is Futuroscope which is a must for children. Overall I can't praise the house, owners or area enough. We had a great holiday and hope to return again in the future - probably the best recommendation.

Gîte was perfect, just what we were looking for in a holiday
We went to the gîte in the middle of June 2016 for two weeks with a young child and extended family. The gîte was perfect and suitable to everyone's needs. It was extremely spacious inside and out (good for young children walking around and exploring) and lots of different areas to relax depending on what you fancied, coffee in the shade or relaxing by the pool. The gîte was very well equipped and all areas were extremely clean. The owners were extremely friendly and close enough to answer any questions but without being intrusive. We experienced a mixture of weather but didn't at any point feel the gîte was not suitable for this. If a chilly evening or wet afternoon then we could relax inside by the log burner. Or there were plenty of lovely villages/towns local to the gîte to go and explore. When the sun appeared then the pool was awesome to relax by or to cool off in. All in all a brilliant holiday and we would love to go back again soon.

Beautiful gîte in heart of France
We had a lovely holiday in Gîte d'Artige. It is a beautiful and spacious gîte that is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
The gîte is in the heart of the countryside and there is plenty of wildlife, yet 5 minutes from St Savin which is a lovely town with supermarket, cashpoint, restaurants etc. There is plenty to do in the area, we enjoyed walking in La Brenne national park, and the Geants du Ciel birds of prey display in Chauvigny is very impressive. We hoped to go on the velo rail in Chauvigny but rain stopped play! We also visited Angles sur l'Anglin and had a lovely meal there. Thanks Sue & Adrian for being great hosts and looking after us during our stay.
