Accommodation for two at Le Petit Bleu



SALON 

The feature granite wall here has been lovingly restored using lime mortar to reveal 'pierres apparentes' and gives the room its country feel. The granite and brick 'cheminée' now hosts a 9kw Godin woodburner to make those spring/autumn breaks away from it all so warm and inviting. 

Curl up together on the sofa in front of the fire with a good book and a glass of wine or watch television and improve your French! (The television is only in french with digital french freeview channels but there is a DVD player with a large selection of English and French DVDs.)

However, for summer months the gardens offer very relaxed outdoor living whilst in the cooler months the additional electric heating helps to keep you both comfortable.


SEPARATE KITCHEN

Unlike many gîtes for two, Le Petit Bleu offers you a separate kitchen which is large, light and airy. It is fully equipped with a full sized gas cooker, microwave, fridge with small freezer section, electric coffeemaker, kettle, toaster, blender, washing machine, iron and ironing board, vacuum cleaner and cleaning products.  Tablecloths, napkins and teatowels are supplied.

Staples such as tea, coffee, sugar, condiments and olive oil are provided, as too is a welcome basket for your immediate needs which comprises wine, Breton cider, croissants and homemade jam; this is made by Anne using the fruit from Stuart's potager.

At one end of the kitchen there is a dining area for two, complete with high chair if needed, which overlooks the pretty gite garden.  This may be accessed from the kitchen.


DOUBLE BEDROOM

There is a double bed (140cm x 190 cm), travel cot for baby (65cm x 125cm), bedside tables and lights, 'armoire' with mirror, clothes storage unit, blanket chest, mirror, etc.  All bedlinen is provided (both english and french pillows with the choice of summer or winter duvet) and it is changed weekly and the beds are made up for your arrival.



BATHROOM

The bathroom is small but fully tiled from floor to ceiling and one is able to take either a bath or a shower to suit! There is the usual pedestal washbasin and w.c. and a 'chauffe-eau' for hot water. Also an electric towel rail with towels provided (bath sheets, hand towels, towelling robes & bath mat) and these are changed twice weekly.  Toilet rolls, soap and cleaning products are also supplied.


GARDEN

The garden to Le Petit Bleu is accessed through the kitchen and is completely private, being walled and laid to grass with shrubs. There are two gravelled terraces; one in the shade and one in the sun, with tables, chairs, a parasol and a barbecue to make the most of summer outdoor living.

There is private parking for one car in the courtyard, bicycles may be stored under our veranda and the gates are closed each night for your security.

Take a leisurely stroll through the blue gate and the gardens at La Grande Tournicotière are yours to share with the owners throughout your stay.

Armed with your trug, collect fruit and vegetables in season from the abundant 'potager' and enjoy the taste of freshly picked produce which will help to make your meals in Brittany so much more memorable!
Or from the the top orchard, simply sit under the old cider tree and take in the views beyond the gardens to the verdant Breton countryside.
