The pool and gardens

Les Grands Coudrais is set in 3 acres of glorious French countryside.  Each cottage has its own enclosed garden with barbecue and garden furniture, and guests are welcome to relax in the shared grounds around the property.

The IMG_0956-001large swimming pool is surrounded by lawns, lavander, honeysuckle and climbing roses and there are plenty of sun loungers just inviting you to relax.  IMG_1068The pool area is fully enclosed and has a safety alarm which complies with French pool security regulations.  IMG_0958The pool is open from May to September and we don’t have opening hours – it’s there for you to enjoy!

Outside the enclosed pool area there’s plenty of room for all sorts of outdoor games.  A swing set, swingball, badminton and mini-football pitch are all available for you, and a perfect way to spend an early evening is to pour a glass of wine and have a game of boules on our specially made court.

The IMG_2259Grange is a  covered area behind the barn.  Here you’ll find a table tennis table and a seating area with cushions and candles, just right for an apéritif or nightcap.

Behind the pool area is our vegetable garden, where we grow all kinds of fruit and vegetables.  Amélie’s chickens live here too (15 hens and a very busy cockerel at the last count) and she’s always pleased to introduce them to guests.  IMG_2614Some of our younger guests’ happiest holiday memories have apparently been collecting an egg to eat for breakfast!

With our large field behind the vegetable garden, the grounds at Les Grands Coudrais offer plenty of space, freedom and quiet corners for all our guests.
