L'Hirondelle Holiday Rental in SW France

luxury gites for rent SW France

L'Hirondelle is a beautiful old stone farmhouse which sleeps up to 10 people and is available to rent all year. We have completely redesigned this old house, retaining all of its charm but have added all the luxuries that we all expect these days and more, a labour of love, but we are more than happy with the finished result!

L'hirondelle has air conditioning/heating throughout. It has a huge open-plan lounge with a large contemporary sofa facing a gorgeous big open fire with a stone chimney, french doors open onto the terrace, hot-tub and pool to the back. There is a large flat screen TV with English channels, ipod dock and a DVD player discreetly hidden in an original cupboard.

L'Hirondelle has a country-style kitchen with a massive island separating the lounge area, it has a double sink, a range cooker, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, dryer and American fridge-freezer with an integral ice maker.

It also has a separate dining hall excellent for a French banquet at any time of the day or night, you can cook yourself or our private chef can prepare and serve a delicious feast for you!

We have everything the discerning cook could ask for: slow cooker, ice cream maker, chocolate fountain, fondue set, , everything you need to make the family holiday one to remember!


Outside there are two separate pools, one heated endless pool to the front of the house, complete with massive sundeck and cover. There is also a lovely Summer pool to the back of the house overlooking uninterupted views of the beautiful rambling countryside. This has a semi covered terrace with a massive 8 seater high massage jacuzzi, seating areas and tables for eating alfresco.

Continue down a few steps to the huge sundeck, laze in a hammock or jump in the pool, just beyond here is our barrel sauna / steam barrel under the shade of the mirabel tree.

L'Hirondelle has four spacious stylish bedrooms with many original features. All are en suite, with roll-top freestanding baths, shower attachment, WC, sink and hairdryers. The master bedroom downstairs has a lovely rolltop bath in the corner and an en-suite shower room with a huge 2m walk in shower.

Two fold up single beds are also available which can be put in any bedroom. We love babies here and also supply travel cots, sterilisers, changing mats, baby baths, baby monitors and highchairs for our smallest guests.
