Welcome to Les Gites de Fontenioux situated in the heart of the Gatine countryside. Set in beautiful gardens, we offer two, three bedroom gites - Marguerite and Violette. Both can be booked separately accommodating up to 6 people, or together for larger groups - there is a connecting door that can be opened between the two. If booked together, guests have exclusive access to the heated pool and all outdoor dining spaces. Whether you are looking for a few days away, or an extended stay, Les Gites de Fontenioux is the place to relax, unwind and get away from it all.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Les Gites de Fontenioux is set just outside the small village of Vernoux-en-Gatine in the Poitou-Charentes region of France. The property is the old coach house and workers cottages for the Chateau de Fontenioux.
The unspoilt rural landscape surrounding the property make it ideal for walking, cycling and fishing. For the more adventurous, there are endless attractions in the surrounding area to suit all tastes. In Vernoux, just three minutes away by car, you will find a bar/restaurant, La Petite Noisette and an excellent boulangerie.

the villages of L'Absie and Secondigny can be found just ten minutes away, with bars, restaurants and shops. Parthenay and Fontenay le Comte, shrouded in history, are a mere thirty minute drive and well worth a visit.

We are also located an hour or so from two major theme park attractions, Puy du Fou and Futuroscope and an hour and a half from beautiful La Rochelle on the coast.

Our fully renovated gîtes, Violette & Marguerite, are converted from estate worker’s cottages, while still retaining the charm of a bygone era. Nature abounds on the property, which looks out over rolling fields, and encompasses part of the nearby forest. When we watch rabbits playing tag up and down our lane, deer trotting away when they see us, spot a wild orchid on the grass verge, or listen to the birds singing, we know this is a wonderful place to be, and we love to share this with our visitors.


VIOLETTE - sleeps six people, and has an open plan living/dining room with a kitchen area to the rear. There is a separate hall area with an old traditional staircase with low-rise treads giving easy access to the first floor. Stair-gates are available on request. The hall and landing provide two extra relaxing areas. Cleaning & Laundry: Washing machine, iron, ironing board, folding airer plus outside covered drying area.

There are two shower-rooms and three bedrooms, double (en-suite shower-room) and two twin rooms. However there is some flexibility with the bedrooms: A single bed can be added to the double bedroom so we can accommodate six single people. One pair of twin beds can be made up as a large double with zip-together mattresses. Please note maximum capacity is still six people. Swimming pool heated from 1 May until 1 October. Wood burning stove, with logs from 1 October until 1 May. Electric fans and oil-filled radiators provided. Barbeque area with two charcoal barbeques. All fuel, logs and charcoal are included. Outdoor furniture including bistro set for morning coffee, picnic tables and a variety of sun loungers. Two clean, dry, secure "bike sheds" for storage. Free WiFi throughout. The two gîtes can be booked together and have a connecting door.(see listing for Les Gites de Fontenioux ref: 4500).
