Our 2 almost identical adjacent 1 bedroom apartments on the ground floor of the main house were built entirely by us and completed for the summer of 2016. We have named them Gite Noisette and Gite Cerise, as we have hazel and some cherry trees in the old orchard.

The apartments are lovely and spacious, perfect for a couple or friends because the beds can be made up either as large singles or as a super king double (with topper for extra comfort as a double). Cots and high chairs are also available for couples with infants. 

The apartments share an entrance hall and the large South facing terrace with incredible mountain views. There is a large firepit/BBQ on the terrace and benches made here at La Taillede. Perfect for quiet evenings by the fire or gatherings with family or friends, looking out over the valley.

Both apartments measure 50m², and have spacious open plan kitchen/living room/dining rooms. The bathrooms are modern with high pressure showers, WC, washbasin and radiator. The bedrooms are unique and full of character with amazing features of the mountain incorporated into the walls.

They each have wood burning stoves, wifi internet, and a television which is connected to the main system, with hundreds of pre-recorded movies and tv programs to watch. You can also hook into your Netflix account should you wish. However, most guests would prefer to be exploring the mountains or just taking in the incredible view!

All the built in cupboards in the kitchen & bathroom, ceiling beams, lintels and beds are made out of chestnut from our forest, sawn at La Taillede, made and fitted by our brilliant team here, with love.

Gite Noisette and Gite Cerise are perfect for a couple, but you may also wish to bring a group and rent another 1-3 gites to make the most of all the areas and facilities.

Right next to Gite Noisette & Gite Cerise, is the 'info cove' or reading room. It has a comfy sofa, lots of leaflets with local information and a view to die for. This is one of our (and our cats) favourite spots @ La Taillede!

Coming soon; For 2020, there will be a sauna and cool plunge pool right next to Gite Noisette!

Linen, towels, tea, coffee some toilet paper, hand soap and natural cleaning products are all provided. We will also make sure you have enough firewood, kindling and fire lighters for a fire each evening, if needed.

There is a washing machine and drying racks for your use in the communal bathroom 5 metres from Gite Noisette. We provide ecological washing detergent to not damage our reed bed septic system.

No need to buy drinking water as we have spring water which is filtered and UV treated and it’s better than anything you will buy in a plastic bottle!

We are sorry but dogs are not permitted as we have sheep and can not risk having an incident.
