Chambres d'hôtes

Front of house 1.jpg


Ô Trois Oliviers is a comfortable house that was once the haybarn of the neighbouring farm.  It was substantially renovated to a high standard some years ago and the current owners (Graeme and Alison) are continuing to add to its charm.


The garden boasts three olive trees that were planted by the original owners, Michel and Jocelyne, and we have named each of the rooms after a well-known French variety of olive.

Graeme and Alison travelled extensively for work over many years and their experience of hotels and guest houses informed the refurbishment of the three rooms.  All are all en-suite  and are well-furnished with plenty of charging points for the large number of electrical items that we all carry around these days.  The bedside lights even incorporate a USB point for easy phone-charging!

They are well-appointed and offer space to work and relax in comfort, and all enjoy views over the pretty gardens.

The house stands on the ancient route of the Kings of England at the heart of the Thouet valley, rich in Gallo-Roman history. It offers easy access to the nearby mediaeval towns of St Loup-sur-Thouet, Airvault and Parthenay, all of which offer good restaurants, markets and places of interest.  The nearby Lac du Cèbron is a protected ornithological site of special interest and offers indoor and outdoor sporting activities.



We have three lovely rooms, all recently renovated and re-furnished.

Tanche: set away from the main house, this is a refreshing room with its own shower room and toilet.  It has a double bed plus space to work and relax.  There is an outdoor seating area for guests to enjoy the garden.  It is suitable for one or two guests.

Sabine: is on the ground floor of the main house with a king-size bed and its own bath/shower room and toilet.  The room overlooks the garden  and guests are welcome to use the outdoor seating areas to relax. It is suitable for one or two guests.

Picholine: is on the first floor of the main house with access via an external staircase. It is a large room with a very comfortable 'coin salon' along with a king-size bed.  It has an en suite shower room and toilet and enjoys views over the surrounding countryside. It is suitable for one or two guests.




Breakfast includes fresh orange juice, yoghurt, fresh fruit, cereal, croissants and bread along with coffee or tea.  Please let us know if you have any food allergies at the time of booking.

Tea and coffee

There are tea and coffee-making facilities in each room, along with a fridge to store your own supplies. Fresh milk is available on request.


The house sits in a pretty garden that offers a variety of seating areas.  The weather this year has been harsh, so the garden is unusually brown and crispy!


We are trying to reduce the amount o single-use plastic so don't place toiletries in the rooms. We do have some on hand if you have not brought any with you.


Internet connection is available in all three rooms for general browsing, email and social media.  We ask all guests to observe a fair usage policy.


Each room has a good number of electrical and USB charging points as well as a hairdryer to support today's traveller. The house is all-electric and benefits from two large arrays of solar panels. 




(This is just a small selection of what is available in our area.)


​Les Terres Blanches is just a short drive from O Trois Oliviers. They produce a wonderful range of single grape wines which are presented by charming and knowledgeable owners.

Historic towns

We are surrounded by the beautiful, mediaeval towns of St Loup, Airvault and Parthenay.  Each has its own story to tell, its own vibrant market and good places to eat and shop.  Airvault has recently launched a 3D visitor's guide that will take you on a tour of life as it was in mediaeval times.


Dating from around 1550, the Chateau d'Oiron came into state ownership in 1941. It now hosts an outstanding art collection in wonderful surroundings, well worth a visit.
