Deceptively spacious, retaining some original features, such as flagstone floors, exposed beams and original interior doors. Some wood flooring and a bespoke Elmwood staircase. The rooms can be used as bedrooms, playrooms, study or in whatever suits you need. Some have the advantage of those amazing sweeping countryside views.
In a peaceful location, offering privacy if required, yet just a short drive to local amenities in surrounding villages, with larger amenities available in the towns of Chef Boutonne 10km and Melle 20km. Poitiers with airport and TGV link 80km (approx. 1hr15min by car – Paris/Bordeaux commutes a possibility). Other airports of La Rochelle, Limoges and Bordeaux service the area. Approx. 1hr to the West coast. A great location to take advantage of the peace and quiet of the countryside, but accessible from the North and South and ideally situated to explore France and neighbouring countries.
