Take a look at our gite we call Ciel.  Ciel is French for 'sky', we named it because of the huge expanse of sky you can sit back and take in from the private balcony.  Even better than the day time blue sky is the massive view it gives you at night with a thousand stars visible above you due to zero light pollution.

We refurbished Ciel in late 2017 and remains firm favourite with our guests.  With its oak beamed bedroom, large walk in shower and clean open kitchen area Ciel remains a favourite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We couldn't have asked for a better weekend for the first Ocean Walker masterclass with Adam himself in attendance.  With attendees from France, Switzerland and the UK it was a great collection of accents all with one aim, to become a more efficient swimmer and reduce the risk of injury

We bought Gites At Civray back in June of 2017 and have spent a lot of the time since then working to make it into what we think visitors would want, so what did we do?

We didn't want to be pigeon holed into renting out Gites for holidaymakers or only having hard core triathletes on training holidays, or only hosting yoga camps so we built something that we feel allows us to provide people with the holiday that they want without having to compromise.

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 

Take 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.

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.
