La Vrilletterie is a wonderful old winegrowers longère, built of soft white limestone and has been lovingly restored preserving many of its original features of exposed stonework, wooden beams and tiled floors.

The original farmhouse – which is now the gîte – forms one side of the courtyard. It’s a particularly spacious building, with more than 200 sqm of floor space.

Some 20 m across the courtyard is our house, formerly a barn and stables.

The top of the courtyard is formed by a wall and is entered through double wooden gates, flanked by the original stone pillars. The bottom of the courtyard has a charming stone, rose-covered arch, leading to the swimming pool, lawn and terrace.

The courtyard, with its raised flower beds and gravel surface, can be securely enclosed and makes an ideal area for young children to play with minimal supervision.

The property is centrally heated and has been furnished to a high standard keeping many of its original features. Wi-fi is available throughout the property and in the pool area.

The gîte has four, large ensuite rooms and sleeps 9 comfortably. We can also offer additional accommodation for another five people, making a total of 14. The additional two, chambres d’hotes rooms are also large with an ensuite bathroom and are situated on the opposite side of the courtyard.

Please note that gîte guests have exclusivity on the whole of the property at all times.
