Le Potager is the smaller of our two gites at La Belardiere. So called because it overlooks the vegetable garden, Le Potager enjoys a pretty walled patio leading to its own private garden, benefiting from the shade of a large walnut tree (which can be very welcome in the height of the summer!). Le Potager shares the near 2 hectares of grounds of La Belardiere with our other gite, Le Verger. This includes a large walled orchard, the pool and sun terrace, games area (boules, table tennis, table football, badminton and garden games) as well as a wood and large field to the rear with wonderful views over the river Creuse Valley. Inside there is an open plan kitchen/dining area with fully fitted kitchen and separate lounge area.

The downstairs floors are tiled throughout and the ceilings are high, giving a genuine feeling of space. The downstairs bedroom is suitable for guests with limited mobility. Upstairs are two en-suite bedrooms, one double and one twin. Throughout there are original beams and original features, providing a character feel to the property. One comment from a recent guest about their stay in Le Potager: 'When we arrived at La Belardiere, I was quite stunned by the Gites - the buildings and grounds. Kath and Roger have done a beautiful job with their renovation of the old barns and it has quite obviously been a labour of love.'More

Kath and Roger were excellent hosts. Their property is a true home away from home. Beautiful renovated property with many private areas to relax. Even an outdoor pool. They went out of their way to make you feel welcome.

About the neighbourhood
The village of St Remy sur Creuse is 2 km away, or a picturesque 30 minutes walk through the woods. The settlement dates back a thousand years and is the site of a fascinating series of cave dwellings set into the rocks above the main village. Guided visits are available and there are a number of organised events throughout the year. The village also boasts a newly refurbished Auberge, offering a range of traditional cuisine at very reasonable prices – or simply a refreshing drink as you watch the world go by. The larger towns of Descartes (birthplace of philosopher Rene Descartes) and Dange St Romain (both 5 km) offer a full range of facilities including supermarkets, boulangeries, pharmacies, and banks. Bustling Descartes market, held on Sunday mornings, draws people from miles around and is a real social event.
Getting around
You'll need a car to get around and see the sights. The nearest station is Chatellerault, around 20 km away. There is a bus from Descartes (6 km) to Tours, though it is not very frequent. We've got lots of bikes though...
