La Moderation

Gite with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in La Chapelle-Pouilloux, France

From €282 per week

Lovely newly renovated two bedroom gite in former barn set in the Couer de Poitou the very centre of the Poitou Charentes region.


Situated in the south of the Deux Sevres region of the Poitou Charentes La Moderation
is in the ideal position for those wanting to explore this beautiful region, or just to sit back and relax
in the sun.
Our gite, Le Petite Etable is a former barn attached to the end of the main building of this former
farm dating from the 1800’s. Which we now run as a small family camping and caravan site in the south
of the Deux Sevres in the heart of the Pouiou Charentes region, “La Couer de la Charente”. This area
which has on average around 2400 hours of sunshine every year, is second only Provence and the
Côte d'Azur!  But because it is largely undiscovered, we do not have the crowds of tourists that you find
in some of the other better known touristique regions in France. This secret area has conserved its
tranquility and the unspoiled beauty of authentic rural France. In summer time the enormous golden
fields of sunflowers known in France as Tournesol because of the way they turn and follow the sun t
hroughout the day, are a truly a delight for the eyes. The surrounding countryside is fairly flat open
farmland with plenty of Pleasant walks along tracks with only occasional traffic on them and plenty of
wildlife especially birds of prey and small deer that roam the wooded areas

Solo from Devizes, United Kingdom Jun 2015

Great site, well laid out and fully equipped. Owners are excellent, very helpful. Nice pool for a dip.


From Andover, United Kingdom Aug 2011

A very comfortable property, equipped with everything you could ask for and run by a lovely couple, who could not have been more friendly or helpful.


From Lancaster, United Kingdom Jul 2011

We are a family of 4 first to rent this great little property, one end of large old farm building in large grounds used as campsite with about 10 pitches. Pool was great, kids really enjoyed it. Owners live at far end of main building, English couple very helpful and friendly but respect your space and privacy. Gite is very well done and well equipped. Very quiet location in a small village, country roads so could cycle past fields of sunflowers. Nearest town 3km away, Sauze Vaussais, has bakers, bank, post-office, shops (inc. Spar), Tourist office* and a really well stocked Supermarket which also has very cheap fuel diesel 1.26euro/l (cf £1.40 /l UK supermarket.) Local Tourist office limited hours and unhelpful, but tourist office in nearby Ruffec (20min drive) and Melle (10m drive) very helpful. Recommend both Ruffec (and nearby river for swimming and kayak hire at Condac). Melle beautiful town with walks and cycle-path etc. prper market on ?friday. Also recommend Futurescope cinema based theme park (50min) at Poitiers - stay for the 3D laser show at dusk - book on line La Rochelle on the coast (1hr30m) and Cognac (50min). Overall quiet location if you want to just chill out with lots to do/see in the area but you do need to be prepared to drive but roads excellent and relatively quiet. Would definitely recommend.
