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

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...
