The Swimming Pool
The swimming pool at Les Hiboux looks out over the beautiful Charente countryside, and is for the use of guests at any time. The swimming pool is 10 metres long, 5 metres wide and 1 metre deep, and is surrounded by decking with sunbeds for relaxation, making it perfect for both children and adults. During the summer we have a paddling pool set up on the decking immediately next the swimming pool for younger guests. The view from the swimming pool of gently rolling hills faces west, making it a perfect spot from which to watch the sunset. You can help yourselves to the lilos and pool toys that are stored in the cubby hole under the pool decking to the right hand side of the swimming pool entrance.
Guests are free to make use of our large two acre garden and terrace area. There is lots of room for kicking a ball around or a game of badminton, and there are swings and a large trampoline next to the swimming pool. Children can find a Wendy house hidden in our bamboo ‘forest’. The gite has a private fenced garden with table and chairs, sunbeds and barbecue.
We are surrounded by open countryside and the gardens are very quiet for relaxation.
We have two dogs named Primrose and Gypsy, and three cats named Guinness, Caffrey (Guinness is black and Caffrey is a mottled brown colour - just like the beers they are named after!) and Tibaut. They are all very friendly and good with children. Primrose and Gypsy are very good with other dogs and love to play!
We keep bees. You are welcome to watch us during our weekly inspections of the hives. It is highly unlikely that you will be stung by one of our bees, but people with allergies should be aware that we have them on the property.
You are welcome to bring your own animals.
