La Chataigne Gites, Caunay, Poitou Charentes, France, sleeps 9-22 in 9 bedrooms.

Sleeps 4 to 22 in a detached house and 3 gites:
La Chataigne sleeps 9
Le Tournesol sleeps 5
La Rose sleeps 4
La Lavande sleeps 4

La Chataigne Gites are located in a small village within Deux Sevres, and are ideal for an extended family group holidaying together, or for a number of families away as a group but wanting to have some private space too.

The largest house, La Chataigne, offers 2 double bedrooms (1 en suite) and a children's room with 1 single and 2 bunk beds. Le Tournesol has a double and a triple room, while La Rose and La Lavande each have a double and a twin. Each has its own dining area and outside space for a barbecue.

La Chataigne Gites are family-friendly, with cots and high chairs available. There is a children's play area with a selection of swings and seesaws.

The swimming pool at La Chataigne, measuring 10m x 5m, is gated and alarmed and available between early June and late September. There are sun loungers and parasols - just relax and enjoy the wonderful climate. The pool is adjacent to picnic tables and a large covered veranda with a fridge and seating area as well as a stone built barbecue - a great space for the whole group to come together.

There are plenty of family friendly attractions to entertain your group too. Local towns have fascinating markets, as well as a range of bars and restaurants. There are historic sites to explore, or why not hire a boat and travel along the canals of the region. And for the children, try Futuroscope or the Crocodile Park for a fun-filled day out. And for those preferring to stay closer to home, there are many opportunities for cycling and walking in the immediate area.
