View from Gite Noisette

Our 2 almost identical adjacent 1 bedroom apartments on the ground floor of the main house, are finished and ready for our first summer of guests. 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 (90cms wide) or as a super king double (with topper for extra comfort as a double). Gite Noisette also has a double sofa bed in the sitting room so could comfortably suit a family of 4. Cots and high chairs are also available.

Both apartments measure 50m², with a large open kitchen/living room/dining room and roomy, high pressure showers. The bedrooms are unique and full of character. Both bedrooms have amazing features of mountain rock coming out through the walls.

They each have wood burning stoves, wifi internet, and a television which is connected to the main system, with hundreds of movies and tv programs to watch. 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.

The apartments share an entrance hall and the large South facing terrace with BBQ in front of the house. These apartments are perfect for 2 couples or friends who want their own space but enjoy a little social time too, or for groups who would like to use both apartments.

Also available free of charge to anyone renting Gite Noisette & Gite Cerise, is the reading room or 'Monastic Cell' as we call it! It is right next to the Gites with a vaulted ceiling, comfy sofa, lots of books and a view to die for. One of our favourite spots @ La Taillede!

New addition in July 2017 is a large firepit/BBQ 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.
