Self Catering Holiday Rental Gites in St-Civran, Indre, France - Sunflower Cottage 

Les Hirondelles is an old rural French farm which has been lovingly renovated and converted into self-catering holiday Gîtes over recent years. It is set in two acres of lovely grounds overlooking a beautiful, unspoilt valley, with plenty of space for barbeques or to simply sit and relax. We are situated in "La Brenne" Parc Naturel. Our grounds are full of wildlife, including swallows, barn owls, redstarts, butterflies and lizards. Wood burning stoves make the Gîtes cosy for winter retreats. It offers holidaymakers rustic French accommodation but with all the modern conveniences, including English TV and Wi-fi, to make your holiday truly relaxing. This region of central France offers a haven of peace and rustic tranquillity. The climate is mild and sunny, the pace of life leisurely and makes an ideal rural retreat.

Les Hirondelles offers two holiday Gîtes: a large farmhouse and a smaller cottage in a converted barn. Both Gîtes have a sunny terrace to the front and back. The rear terraces overlook the gardens and the beautiful valley beyond - ideal for watching the sun go down with a glass of red wine! 

SUNFLOWER COTTAGE - The barn cottage sleeps 5-7 people. Downstairs is a well equipped kitchen with fridge-freezer, cooker and microwave; a large shower room and a lounge-diner with a large wood-burning stove and sofa bed. Upstairs there is a double bedroom, a twin bedded room and a WC.

If you are thinking of buying in this region we offer discounts for longer term rentals during off-peak times and would be glad to help you with local knowledge.

Local Attractions

Les Hirondelles is set in the small hamlet of St Civran in the Indre department of Centre region. It has a feel of being nicely off the beaten track while being easy to get to, and an ideal base for exploring the local area.

Les Hirondelles is situated in La Brenne, one of France’s 36 Parcs Naturel Régionaux. Known as the Region of a Thousand Lakes, La Brenne comprises over 1,400 small lakes, made during the Middle Ages for fish-farming. Today, it is an internationally important wetland wildlife habitat, harbouring many species of wild plants and animals, including the endangered European Pond Turtle, and providing excellent opportunities for bird-watching, angling, cycling and walking.

Close by you can see the stunning architecture in the mediaeval town of St Benoit de Sault, which has won awards as one of France’s most beautiful towns.

Other nearby attractions include the spectacular Creuse valley, a very popular spot for kayaking; Lac D’Eguzon, a reservoir formed by flooding the valley with a hydroelectric dam, creating a beautiful lake for swimming and water-sports; and lovely fresh-water swimming lakes at Belabre and Chaillac. The Futuroscope theme-park at Poitiers is also within easy reach.
