Gîte History


La Herpiniere gite as it stands today was the original farmhouse on a much larger property. Over the years land was sold to neighbouring farmers leaving the five acres that we have today.


Built in the 1800s, La Herpiniere is set well away from the converted barn that is the main house today.


In turn, our nearest neighbour is over 300 yards away, so peace and quiet is assured, and this cosy gîte's reputation for tranquility and relaxation is maintained.
