The facilities at La Petite Guyonnière are designed to provide something for all age groups. The swimming pool, indoor games room, outdoor games and our extensive gardens are central to that premise.
Each gite has it’s own outside dining area with a stone B-B-Q, tables and chairs
10m x 5m heated swimming pool
Extensive and established gardens
Outside Dining Areas
The dining area for Le Marronnier is set beside the ornamental pond. It includes a stone BBQ, tables and chairs for 12 people, lighting and power socket.
The swimming pool is situated between the accommodation and our 2.5-acre field. It is fenced, with a padlocked gate and an alarm.
The pool is 10m x 5m and is suitable for exercise as well as for fun, however, it is not deep enough for diving. It is heated from May through to October.
The large sun terrace features sun loungers and chairs, parasols and a solar heated shower. Beside the pool, for smaller children, there is also a pirate ship, the “Green Pig”.
Indoor Games Room
The “Games Room” was once a cattle barn and evidence of this can still be seen. Inside are a table-tennis table, a dart board, table football, a selection of free-weights and some bicycles.
Also stored here is the games equipment for all the outside activities such as football, badminton and boules.
There is a range of outdoor games that provide fun activities for all ages and abilities, they include:
- 10 Pin Bowling
- Selection of “Medieval” games
Ouside space is something that we have plenty of, with 10,000 m² set aside as gardens and another 12,000 m² used as grazing for horses. For the past 8 years we have been host to “Hermine”. She is a large, but extremely gentle, retired trotting horse.
There are a number of shady seating areas with tables and chairs, which can be moved around to suit your tastes. As well as flower beds, shrubs and trees, we have made areas for playing football, a boules court and space for badminton.
Have we mentioned the “Tree Fairies”? They are around but you have to look really hard!
At the front of the property is the courtyard, there is sufficient off-road parking for up to 8 cars. It gets extremely hot during the day so please be careful about what is left inside cars.
The laundry has a coin operated washing machine. There is a sink, a vacumn cleaner, iron and ironing board, clothes dryer, pegs, bucket and mop etc. To the rear are 2 rotary washing lines.
This room is also the recycling center. We recycle as much as possible, in yellow bags that are taken away on a regular basis. Bottles are disposed of in the dustbins in the indoor games room.
The facilities at La Petite Guyonnière are designed to provide something for everyone, whatever the age and whatever the weather.
