Tucked back, off the beaten track, you will be delighted to discover this charming house, the façade of which is so modest that it belies the stunning interior. Carefully renovated so as to retain the original character of this beautiful stone building, with exposed stone walls and exposed beams, this house has incredibly spacious rooms and a lovely energy about it.
LOCATION About 10 minutes walk to the heart of this popular village with three cafés/bars/restaurants and about 50 metres to the river where there is a beach for swimming and a campsite. There is a lot to do in the area, apart from the opportunities offered by the river Vienne which include canoeing, fishing and lovely riverside walks.
Poitiers airport is 45 km and Limoges airport is 75km and excellent roads if you prefer to drive down from the ferry ports. Read more ...
Two sets of double glazed doors draw you in to the beautiful sitting room (approx 34m²) with stone floors, a gorgeous original Poitevine fireplace with the bricks of the chimney exposed above it, adding character. Beside the fireplace is a built-in cupboard with the original wooden door, adding to the distinct style of the room. Two steps lead down into the kitchen (approx 32m²) which benefits from the same magnificent stone floors, another two double glazed doors and a window to the front. As there are no windows on the back wall, the current owners have cleverly introduced light to the back half of the kitchen by partially glazing the ceiling so that natural light comes in from the bedroom above. The kitchen benefits from a woodburning stove which, I'm sure, makes this room a really pleasant space to be in winter as well as in summer. Outside the kitchen door is a little sunny terrace, just big enough for a few of you to sit outside for your morning coffee.
The stone-clad staircase leads out of the sitting room to the first floor landing (approx 1m²) off which are doors to the bathroom (approx 8m²) which has a maroon suite comprising the bath, basin and loo, and the two smaller bedrooms (approx 12m² and 13m² respectively) both of which have windows to the front. The master bedroom (approx 37m²) is really the 'pièce de resistance' and must have been an important room in a previous life, as seen by the huge fireplace and the "coussiège" stone seats by the window where apparently maidens would have sat in medieval times, taking advantage of the natural light for reading or sewing or perhaps just looking out for their knights to ride in.
A short distance from the house is the barn (approx 50m²) and the garden (180m²) which leads down to the riverside gardens and car park which are communal.
The village also has a bakery, a butcher, a 'Maison de l'Art et du Terroir' which is a sort of gallery for local artists, a hairdresser and wonderful rural shop which sells animal feed and plants as well as equipment and bits and bobs for the garden. There are many local markets, restaurants, châteaux and gardens to visit in the vicinity. Just 10 minutes by car will bring you to the market town of L’Isle Jourdain which, besides its breathtaking viaduct over the river Vienne, also has schools, water sports, swimming pool and tennis courts and all the shopping facilities you will need on a daily basis. If you are feeling daring you can do a bungee jump off the viaduct, or if not, you could just watch! The medieval market town of Chauvigny is about 20 minutes drive away, where you can explore the castle, ride on the velo-rail and watch the famous ‘Geants du Ciel’, the huge birds of prey who perform for you. Futuroscope is about 40 minutes by car and monkey valley at Romagne and the crocodile house at Civaux are all within an easy drive.
