Introduction

The farmhouse has been newly renovated to create a place of enjoyment, with a stylish mix of colour and calm, a place to experience the relaxed French way of life.

Built at the turn of the century this beautiful authentic French farmhouse has original oak beams and exposed stonework and is situated in a picturesque quiet canalside village on the Circuit Touristique in the Marais Poitevin.  This is an area of natural beauty featuring a vast network of waterways linking to the west coast.  The Atlantic beaches, La Rochelle and the chic Ile de Re can be reached by car in 45 minutes.

It is a magical place mixing the charm of an old building with very contemporary fixtures and fittings.  Soak up the peace and serenity of a comfortable and spacious home just 3 minutes' stroll from the canal and parkland area laced with little woodland boardwalk bridges and picnic benches.  Cycling and walking routes are on the doorstep and right next door horses can be hired from the equestrian centre. Within 2km there are several embarcaderes where the flat-bottomed local barques can be rented to "drift off by yourself, swimming, idling, picnicking and slipping into a pleasant torpor." (Alastair Sawday, travel writer, about the Venise Verte).

Surrounding villages offer many restaurants, historic abbeys to explore, firework festivals, markets, concerts and "son et lumiere" productions.
