Lincoln's Stable


La Petite Ferme is located in the historic village of Dampierre sur Boutonne. The village boasts a Renaissance Chateau and a 12th Century church. The area is surrounded by countless fields of beautiful sunflowers and fantastic birds and wildlife. The current owners purchased the former farmyard in 1998 to begin a new way of life and an adventure in France , leaving behind the crowds and the traffic of England . They have lovingly restored some neglected buildings into comfortable accommodation retaining many original features. A garden has been created where there was none and it all makes La Petite Ferme a friendly place to spend a holiday and somewhere pleasant to return to after a day exploring the region. Since 1999 when they had their first booking, the owners have made many new friends some of whom now own holiday homes themselves in the area. Some have even taken the plunge and made the move to live in France permanently.

This old farm stable was greatly restored and turned into a very comfortable and very clean accommodation by Teresa and Mick. The whole property is well maintained and all facilities are made safe even for young children, which helped the winding down process. In addition, we were very warmly welcome and taken care of by the owners Teresa and Mick. The swimming pool, game barn and all toys and patience Teresa and Mick provided the children with have made our stay a very relaxing and pleasurable one and we would highly recommend this property to friends.

The accommodation was excellent and more than met its description. Mick and Terry are most hospitable hosts and ensured that we had everything that we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The location is very central to many places of interest.

Mick and Terry where extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Their property is comfortable, homely and a superb base for a family holiday. When the new pool is finished, this spring, it will have everything one could possibly want. Dampierre sur Boutonne village is pretty, quiet and all the amenieties are within 2 (literally) minutes walk. The chateau is undergoing renovations but it too will be open soon. Thank you villarenters, Mick and Terry for an enjoyable and very successful holiday-home buying trip.

A very good gite, well situated in a village with boulangerie, tabac and restaurant. Good location for the many delights of the region and with the added bonus of a warm welcome from the resident owners.
The accommodation was simple, attractive, comfortable and represented very good value for money. The pool was especially good: heated, clean and very well maintained. The location was reasonably quiet, in the heart of a historic and very pretty, typically French village. The owners, who live on the site, were very friendly and helpful. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would recommend this accommodation.
Very comfortable accommodation in small, rural village. Excellent, welcoming hosts!
Had a great time, the owner could'nt have been more helpful and made us feel really welcome. The gite was lovley and we will deffinetly be going back
Good value,excellent host,we were looked after verywell,really enjoyed our stay
well done mick outstanding value for the money
Very attractive property with lots of character set in old barn/steading with shared use of great new swimming pool. The living room/kitchin area is spacious and importantly keeps cool in the summer heat. Competitively priced with easy access to village shops. Will appeal to those folk who want to vanish into real rural France for a week or so -but still have access to all the facilities .
property was very good as was the owners. they very friendly and helpful.
