Perfect for a romantic getaway, a retreat from city life, or a relaxing stop along your journey, Cherry Cottage is located in the picturesque French country side 40 minutes south of the city of Poitiers. Part of a refurbished 13th century farmhouse on the edge of a chestnut forest, this vacation rental is fully equipped and situated in the small hamlet of Les Bordes. Cherry Cottage (80 m2 ) is quiet, private, and perfect for two people although it can accommodate up to four.

The guesthouse (or gîte, in French) is owned and managed by Marie-Laure Leauthaud who lives in the main house next door. Marie-Laure, who is fluent in both English and Japanese, has taught French to new arrivals in the region for more than ten years. She offers her English-speaking guests the chance to brush up on their French with a private lesson. No matter the occasion, Marie-Laure welcomes visitors to come in and join her for a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
