Discover the Cour de Boitron gite

The Cour de Boitron is a renovated sixteenth century monastic farm, which boasts outbuildings that date back to the eighteenth century (stables, barn, cider works). It was once the property of the abbaye de Séez.

The sheer space available led us to create a large gite (10-15 beds). Families or larger parties can enjoy a huge covered space inside the former stables, perfect for group activities and festive meals, and even business meetings!

To create a bedroom that is accessible for persons with reduced mobility, a wooden structure was built inside the old stables.

Building work started at the end of 2015 and the renovation was completed at the end of 2016. The first guests stayed at the gite between Christmas and New Year 2016.

To preserve the farm’s atmosphere, we have kept a proximity with animals (donkeys, dogs, chickens, cats, owls, hens, geeses and goats…).

We welcome guests with their pets.

The exterior of the gite have undergone landscaping work. Parts of the exterior area were then planted to offer garden-style facilities and facilitate proximity with the natural surroundings.

The Naves of the old stables

This huge space once housed carts, tractors, and faming machinery.

The structure was covered with a translucent material, which today offers a new interior and exterior space… to do whatever you want… under cover!

Whether it’s relaxing, having a drink, dancing, acting, coworking, organising yoga or Pilates sessions, organising a concert, or a festive family meal: you decide what you’re going to do in a room that can hold up to 50 people!
