If you ever have the need for a swimming pool be sure to check out the guys at Pool Warehouse.  We needed a 25m in ground pool for Gites At Civray and the guys over the pond came up with the goods.  Helpful, on time and on budget 

Tare a look at the video below to see how we built the perfect pool

 

 

Steve is really proud to qualify as the first Ocean Walker coach, he has had a great journey working with the man himself, Adam Walker.  

A huge thanks goes out to all of the volunteers who gave their time to allow him to coach them, hopefully you all got something out of it too.

Keep your eyes out for our first joint swim camp to be held in the 25m onsite swimming pool here at Gites At Civray, we have a target date of early June for the camp giving the summer warmth time to kick in.  Outside of that we are looking at hosting holiday workshops where, as well as having a relaxing break with the family and/or friends, we take a few hours in the pool throughout the week and you leave us with a lovely tan and a brand new, efficient and injury preventing swim stroke.

Here is a video we put together of Steve swimming in the outdoor pool at the Forme d’O in Châtel where we are spending the winter.

 

We have had a good level of interest in the Ladies Only bike week, so to keep things fair we are going to be hosting the same content but this time including either sex.

Confused by chainrings? Derailed by derailleurs? Flattened by punctures?  The bike sessions hosted at Gites at Civray could be just the thing you need to help you get to grips with those terms and skills that currently elude you.  During either the 3 day intense sessions or more relaxed 6 day (7 nights) courses we will endeavour to put you in the driving seat and save you money by passing on the skills and confidence to tackle those potentially easy repairs and adjustments.

Experience the peace and tranquility of rural France with Gites At Civray.

Unspoilt traditional French villages with tree shaded cafes and cake shops in which to indulge or refuel, all linked together by quiet roads.  This is what we think makes rural France perfect for either the athlete wanting to get some quality miles in or for the holidaymaker just taking time out to recharge.

Petit Maison at Gites at Civray has undergone a full transformation.  This en-suite two bedroomed downstairs apartment was fully renovated in spring 2018.

The whole of this traditional farmhouse has been completely rejuvenated and brought up to date functionally at the same time retaining many period features and, most importantly, its character.

The open plan kitchen has been brought up to modern standards with a 90cm 5 burner cooker plus a dishwasher and large fridge incorporated into a traditional styled kitchen with double butler style sink.

The living area has plenty of room to sit and relax and also a large, extendable dining table that can seat up to 10 if required.  Both large bedrooms have double beds and newly installed en-suite bathrooms that point back to the building's history with exposed stone walls.

Petite Maison has its own private outside space, and has very easy access to the gardens.

Wi-fi is available throughout the property.

We can offer a week especially for those who enjoy Triathlon supported by our on site BTF Level 2 certified coach. 

The rivers or lakes are an ideal place to take a dip and work on your swim to bike transition, take a nice ride around the local villages, then practice the bike to run transition before taking a run through our rural location. 

These sessions can be tailored to the points you feel weakest in, and the tranquillity of the roads can help to build bike confidence. The sessions that can be offered range from endurance to FTP power sets to Time Trials.

We have a private 25m pool installed onsite that can be used to tailor technique or just lounge around in.
