Welcome to the Five Oaks Gite

(or Les Cinq Chênes as it’s known around here)

Patsy & Steven, together with their very friendly Tibetan Terrier – Marley look forward to welcoming you to Les Cinq Chênes.

We are situated in the Deux – Sevres department of the Poitou – Charentes which boasts up to 2400 hours of sunshine every year and has the second best climate after the South of France.  This warm and gentle micro climate is set in a rural setting of fields, forests, lakes & rivers ideal for walking, cycling horse riding and fishing.

It is one of the most picturesque areas of France along with the neighbouring area of Vendee.

 A perfect place to take your holiday.
