We welcome up to two well behaved, house trained and friendly dogs(no puppies). They must not be left unattended in the Gite and they are not permitted in the pool although we can provide a small child's pool or hose on hot days 😁. Fortunately Dogs are welcome in most places including cafes and restaurants throughout France so they can enjoy their holiday too! Please discuss any dogsitting requirements you may have as we will try to help out when possible.

In de buurt
Maison La Roche Gite is situated in a picturesque location at the top of the hill looking towards the river on the edge of the tiny village of Bourpeuil which has two restaurants of its own and is a stones throw (or short walk) across from the Town of L'isle Jourdain which has many amenities such as a supermarket, cafes, banks etc. It is a short drive from the International Racing Circuit www.circuitvaldevienne.com which is busy throughout most of the year, it attracts world class racing drivers and hosts training days for amateurs also so is well worth a visit, check out their website for events held most weekends. The Gite is ideally located for walking for biking as the scenery is some of the best in the Vienne, we like the fact that we are just a short walk away from the town but still close enough to benefit from all the amenities without having to drive if we don't want to. Everywhere is dog friendly apart from the supermarkets so take your dog with you and enjoy the holiday together!!

Culinair en wijn
We are very lucky to have a good restaurant/bar at the Viaduc which is open 7 days a week just a 200 metre flat stroll from the Gite! There are other restaurants in L'isle Jourdain town itself but they open mostly for lunch (the French prefer long delicious lunches and light dinners) and some evenings. There is another restaurant just down the hill from the Gite called La Barrage and it is situated on the river Vienne and serves a fabulous lunch menu, try and book a table on the terrace. They also do a fish and chips evening on the first Friday of every month (need to reserve a space as it's always full!) and open some other evenings as they see fit.
There is a small shared Plunge Pool in the orchard which is great for cooling off in the hot weather, however if you like to swim for exercise there is a large municipal pool a short flat walk from here just over the Viaduct which is excellent and there is a lake nearby (12km)in St Martin Lars which is suitable for swimming and Queux also has an area for swimming on the river. The river Vienne next to the Gite is not recommended for swimming by the local authorities but people do swim in it in summer when it is quiet but watch out for the fishermen! There is waterskiing a short walk away on the river Vienne and kayaking...
Wat is er te doen
Maison La Roche is situated in a picturesque area which is wonderful to walk around and enjoy the views.
There are many mountain bike trails in the area and we have a very experienced cycling guide who you can book to take you out for a half or full day ride and provide bikes by reservation only(please ask for further details). www.guidemyride.com
There is fishing down on the river Vienne just 200metres down the hill from the Gite.
There is Bungy Jumping off the spectacular 19th century Viaduct and adventure climbing trails and zip lining across the river, suitable for all ages.
There is also a waterskiing school in L'isle Jourdain so why not have a go?!
Nearby village of Moussac offers kayaking along the river. Saint Martin Mars has a lovely lake for swimming as does the lovely village of Queux.
There are many other activities in the area, with open air concerts and vide Greniers to search out during the summer months.
Of course we are just 4km from the International Motor Racing Circuit Val de Vienne in Le Vigeant which hosts many events throughout the year including supercar events and motorbikes. Check out their website www.circuitvaldevienne.com
There are many interesting towns and villages in the surrounding area. One of our favourites on a Sunday is Saint Savin which is a beautiful town and boasts a fabulous Abbey and several restaurants which are open on a Sunday. Perhaps hunt down a nearby Vide Grenier beforehand...
We are approx 1 hour drive to either city of Poitiers or Limoges with their airports offering many bargain flight options. However a car is recommended here if you want to look around the area but it is not essential. We offer an airport pickup for guests up to 3 people 50 euro each way payable on arrival.
If all of that sounds like too much effort you can always relax in the fully fenced orchard just across from the Gite which has sunloungers, picnic table and plunge pool for cooling off in the warm weather. If you need a larger pool for exercise there is a good size public swimming pool a short flat walk (15minutes) from the Gite but make sure you bring your speedos as no baggy shorts are allowed in most French public pools.

Wat je ook moet weten...
Take a pleasant stroll into L'isle Jourdain over the Viaduct and take in the spectacular views. There is a small market in L'isle Jourdain on a Saturday where you can sample local produce. We recommend Cafe Le 10 for coffee, drinks and food (normally serve dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings). Next to Le 10 is Cafe de la Paix which is also good for coffee, drinks and food, open several evenings for food(we are yet to determine exactly which days as new ownership) . Le Loucky just around the corner from the square offers excellent food and an extensive wine list. Next to Le Loucky there is the restaurant L'Esprit which is open most days in summer for lunch and weekend evenings for dinner by reservation, reportedly excellent food.
Changeover days are generally Saturday to Saturday however if you have a special requirement re dates please message us and we will do our best to accommodate you. We collaborate with a few of the Chambre D'hotes in the area also so we can normally work something out.
Overige prijsinformatie / aanbiedingen
We operate on an honesty basis as we trust our guests will treat the property as they would their own. This means that although we do not charge a security deposit we expect any damages to be reported to us immediately and any extra costs incurred to be paid for before departure. Thank you.
The Gite is expected to be left clean and tidy with the kitchen in order so a normal professional clean can then be carried out by us for the next guests arrival. Thank you.
You will find a welcome basket on your arrival which we hope will help you settle in.
Wood if needed for wood burner in cooler periods is available at a cost of 10 euro per large basket which usually would last 1 or 2 evenings, we also provide kindling and firefighters etc.
