Winter and festive holidays

Winter 2017-18 Festive Holidays

Love the idea of curling up in front of a wood-burning stove in a cosy cottage over the festive period? L’Ecurie, recently awarded 4 stars ****  by the meublé de tourisme, is available all year round. When the glory of spring and summer have passed, autumn and winter offer a welcome opportunity to enjoy the beautiful landscape in a very different light.

Our carefully-converted stable block is centrally heated and has a wood-burning stove to ensure guests stay warm and comfortable throughout their stay. Whilst snow is rare until later in the winter, December can bring fresh, crisp days and beautiful winter sunshine.

Over the Christmas and New Year period, we provide guests with a real Christmas tree in the living room and prepare a welcoming, roaring fire in the burner. Logs are provided for the duration of our guests’ stay.

A real Christmas tree is provided in l’Ecurie over the festive period (minus the snow!)

L’Ecurie is a home away from home with a well-equipped kitchen complete with gas oven and hob.

Winter in Vicq-sur-Gartempe often brings cold, crisp days perfect for enjoying a walk across the fields to the beautiful village of Angles-sur-l’Anglin for a chocolat chaud.

Alternatively, settle down in one of the seating areas around the garden to spot the abundant wildlife. Robins, grouse, hen harriers, buzzards, pheasants, woodpeckers, deer and hares are frequent winter visitors.
