In the Poitou region, home to the greatest of French thinkers such as Joachim-du-Bellay, Rabelais, Ronsard and Descartes. 20 minutes from Saint-Savin abbey, classified as a World Heritage site by Unesco, and just 10 minutes from the medieval village of Chauvigny. The spa resort of La-Roche-Posay is 35 minutes away. Poitiers and its TGV train station are 20 minutes away. The new LGV fast train line provides 70-minute links to Paris and 60-minute links to Bordeaux. The French capital is 3 hours away via the A10 motorway. Poitiers airport has flights to Amsterdam, Brussels and London. 13 minutes from an 18-hole golf course and 20 minutes from another with 18 and 9-hole courses.
Its facade, featuring attic roof dormers, five windows and the double entrance doors, exudes an authenticity which is also to be found in the quality of the materials. The two chimney stacks reinforce the balance of the building which is scarcely upset by an adjoining building added at a later date.
The orangery, laid out in an old barn, has undergone contemporary works. Purposefully decorated to reflect the present, it provides residents with a break from the past. It opens on to a terrace, towards a wide meadow on the edge of the wood. Facilities such as a kitchen and a toilet have been installed for the comfort of those free spirits seeking contemplation.
This hamlet is composed of three houses, a concert hall, horse loose boxes, barns and a covered area.
The houses have all been restored by enhancing their period features. Two of them are independent and have their own garden. The third is divided into two studio flats. These four dwellings currently generate income through seasonal renting, on top of which, weddings, limited to 10 per year, provide an additional income of between 50,000 and 60,000 euros.
This concert hall has been created to receive a large public and to enable musicians to display their talent on stage.
Next to it are six horse loose boxes, with a shower area.
The adjoining barns are used for storing all the tools and equipment needed for the upkeep of this vast estate.
And lastly, the covered area can be used for sheltering vehicles.
This architectural building bears witness to the fact that the residence was once a stately home. It is rendered on the outside and surrounded by a protruding architectural string course to discourage predators. The roof, covered with flat, fish scale tiles, is topped with a slate lantern. This vast dovecote spans two level, with a lower vaulted room, paved with quarry blocks, and the actual dovecote located in the upper section.
The forest estate
This 48 ha forest estate is planted with oak, chestnut and hornbeam trees. It is crisscrossed with bridle paths wide enough to take horse-drawn carriages.
The estate could be used hunting grounds for small game or be associated with the land of its immediate neighbours to constitute hunting grounds, devoted to large game, spanning almost 350 ha. New owners will be able to run the estate as they wish as there are no contracts tying it to its neighbours.
The row between supporters of old and modern art will not be sparked off again here as the spirit is very much an open, conciliatory one. The preserved past still exudes attraction despite more recent additions. The restoration works have coherently united the successive eras. This property, with its concert hall and its accommodation for the musicians, will appeal to music lovers. It has all the facilities necessary for a bed & breakfast or an equestrian activity.
