4 hours from Paris by road, including 375 km on motorway (15 km from a slip road), and 15 km from Saint-Maixent-l'École TGV train station which puts the French capital just 135 minutes away by train, with some direct links. 50 minutes from Poitiers-Biard airport with its daily flights to London. 4 km from a small town, with a large market, shops and restaurants, renowned for its antiques’ market in the summer and its truffle market in the winter. The village, quite sleepy nowadays despite its agitated history, is not far from a major Neolithic site.
The large house
This large house, built in 1792, still has numerous period features. Its L-shape and its Roman tile roof, in harmony with the other village homes, give it a southern air. The roof was redone by the current owner. Built of carefully laid limestone quarry blocks, it has dressed stone window framing. The rendered facades, in a good state of repair, are luminous. Numerous openings let in copious amounts of light which changes all through the day courtesy of its different aspects. The woodwork is in a good general state of repair or is new.
The second house
There are numerous clues to suggest that this intriguing house is not what it seems. The main entrance is in the tower; on a lower level towards the south side, other doors opening off the street lead directly into rooms on the ground floor. The Romanesque tile roof needs redoing and the inside requires full restoration works. The facades are similar to those of the large house and could do with rendering. The south side of the building comprises a lock-up garage.
The outbuildings comprise miscellaneous buildings that are no longer in use. One has a strange-looking double bread oven, another was the old laundry room and a third was used for housing carriages. All are in need of full restoration works.
The slight air of mystery surrounding this residence and its origins can but make it even more exciting. This region is not lacking in attractions and the same can be said for this property: its external informal appearance is the mark of a noble ancestry, betrayed by its style and its look, deeply marked by the aesthetics of the 18th century, much sought-after today. It is in a good overall state of repair and could be lived in as a main residence without having to carry out any works. With its swimming pool and its pergola, it already forms a dream setting for long weekends and holidays with friends or family. Its many rooms and annex buildings could be used as studios for artists or workshops for craftsmen, both professions being able to put these spacious rooms exuding character to good use.
The potential contained in the second house in terms of restoration projects also includes the possibility of a bed & breakfast activity.
