La Germondière, is a peaceful complex of 2 traditional gîtes, with 2 private fishing lakes, set within 2.5 hectares of beautiful countryside in the Poitou-Charentes region of France.
Self-catering accommodation in the Gâtine countryside, yet only 1.5 miles from town. Despite its peaceful, rural ambience, Secondigny (pronounced suh-kon-dee-nee) has all the amenities you may require without having to stray too far. A supermarket, butcher, 2 bakers, newsagent, chemist, banks and hairdresser can all be found in Secondigny, and of course 2 or 3 bars and restaurants. As well as an outdoor swimming pool, mini golf, tennis and pedalo hire at our municipal town campsite. The town even has a knitting wool shop and a tattoo parlour - so we accommodate most interests!
Tranquility, walking, painting, wildlife, photography, fishing or simply relaxing in the "sunniest region in Western France", our two gîtes in La Germondière are your ideal getaway. Why not book both gîtes for a family holiday get together?
We are pet friendly (see our Terms and Conditions) and we have an excellent English speaking Vet in Secondigny who can deal with the necessary PETS scheme requirements. We've had dogs, cats, rabbits and a tortoise stay with us! We are primarily a child free zone, bookings with children are by exception only.
Both gîtes are traditional and rustic, with exposed beams, tiled floors throughout, wood burners for those cooler periods, yet fully equipped for all your self-catering needs. UK TV, plus Free wifi access too.
No swimming pool, but you are welcome to swim in the larger lake (we do!).

Motor-homers and caravanners

An ideal stopover for your route through France. Near to a town with shops and a supermarket (easy/spacious parking), vets, banks, chemist - all you need to prepare for your journey South or North.
What's the hurry? Why not relax for a couple of days and enjoy the fishing and peaceful environment?
