Our cosy cluster of gîtes cater for family gatherings, group of friends, sleeping upto 12 (14) persons - or can be rented individually -:-
Around a small courtyard, we have three well appointed cottages - the largest of which is Châtaigne Cottage, which has a large first floor bedroom suite, with a four poster bed and a small comfortable sitting area, plus en-suite bathroom :- directly attached to the building, two rooms each with twin beds (one upstairs independently accessible – and one downstairs), sharing a bathroom (privately accessible by either room) –
Châtaigne Cottage is where all 12 (or 14) of you can enjoy time together, sharing cocktails in the comfortable ground floor lounge, or on the terrace around the pool,- and dinners around one large table in the dining area or on the terrace - at the same time, you all can have your privacy within the three cottages, make your own cuppa or put your feet up –
Noisette Cottage has one ground floor double bedroom and private bathroom, plus one twin bedded room on the first floor, with en-suite bathroom - and a ground floor private sitting room area with open kitchen facilities –
Girolle Cottage has one first floor double-bed room, and also a ground floor private sitting room area with kitchen facilities - the courtyard is a mere seven meters in width.
In this way, you can sleep comfortably 12 guests, and, if you are 14 guests, we can add one bed each in two of the twin rooms :- naturally, for very small kids we have cots - (and high chairs) -
Ofcourse, we would also be very pleased to welcome your enquiry just to rent one of the above cottages -
All of this above, is situated within our private 35 Ha. (85 acres) of fields & woods, which itself is within a much larger wooded area :- you'd have to send a search party to find neighbours - !
We have one eco-swimming pool serving Noisette & Girolle Cottages, and a Natural pool serving Châtaigne Cottage –
In the fields our retired sheep are munching around - and there is a pond with a bunch of koï - who like a little feeding, which we supply for you -
We think our place is not too bad, infact, some guests considered it is close to paradise - !
We are arty as well :- Penny runs an Atelier Artisanal de Couture & Craft, in a purpose built Périgordian building, situated below our family house - and just 15 minutes walk down the road from Ferme Lespare - and where you are welcome to pop in, have a look around, and join us for a cup of tea. You can find out more about this, as well as further details of arty workshops we organise, with details & photos of Lespare, by checking out our website (www.fermelespare.com), by clicking on the menu link : "workshops" - and, by the way, if you like chocolates, we produce chocolates in our chocolaterie - !
We know this area pretty well, having been here now for over 50 years (we are second generation) - and so we are always happy to tell you all about what you can do, where to go, (famous Lascaux is 20 minutes away by car) - where to eat or buy good stuff for the barbecue - you just tell us your particular interest -
UPON REQUEST FLEXIBLE STARTING DAYS - !
By the way, our Ferme Lespare is heated throughout the year by means of a geothermic system - so, what about warm & cosy Spring, Autumn and/or Winter / Christmas stays - ?
ciao - !
Penny & JAN
