In the Upper Poitou region, between Châtellerault (30 km), Loudun (19 km) and Richelieu (13 km), 3 km from a town with all shops and amenities. The Futuroscope theme park is 40 km away as are two golf courses, one 9-hole and one 18-hole. The French capital can be reached in less than 3 hours via the A10 motorway. Poitier airport (50 km) has flights to Amsterdam, Brussels and London.
The facade of the residence and its four windows give no indication of its spacious rooms. Once through the main door, with its semi-circular arch and its triangular pediment, adorned with acroteria, the entrance hall features a first 17th century fireplace, on its left-hand side. Straight on is a wooden stairway and two doors, one on the right-hand side to the dining room and another opposite leading to a first lounge. This latter, north-south facing room has two windows, one overlooking one of the two courtyards and the other overlooking the French formal garden and the parklands. The adjoining library has wall panelling and the same views as the previous room. A door provides access to a storage area. Each of these rooms, enhanced by high ceilings, features a fireplace. The floor in the entrance hall is paved with stone tiles, whilst those of the lounge and the library are covered with rectangular terracotta tiles. The dining room opens on to the first courtyard as well as the French formal garden and has a view of the parklands in the distance. It provides access to the kitchen and the linen room. A hall area leads to a first bedroom, with its bathroom, its separate shower and its dressing room. The floors are covered with terracotta tiles.
All the windows in the residence are fitted with indoor shutters.
The dovecote, classified on the French supplementary historic monument list, is topped with a candlesnuffer roof, covered with flat tiles and crowned with a lantern. More than 1,000 dove-holes have been hewn in the freestone. Meticulous restoration works have given it back its splendour of yesteryear, making it an emblematic feature of this stronghold house.
The vocations of these outbuildings have changed over the centuries. Those that have been restored bear witness to a former farming way of life which has become of great interest in an era mindful of authenticity. The great variety of spaces and surface areas could suit a multitude of projects. The large semi-underground cellar is accessed via the impressive covered area in the first courtyard. One of these outbuildings houses an underground refuge which was created whilst the house was still a fortress. All the roofs are in a good state of repair.
The 3.5 ha of parklands
A French formal garden, reflecting the discreet elegance of the premises, draws the eye towards the superb northern light and the distant wood. Gates separate the French formal garden from the parklands. The orchard is planted with fig, walnut, apple, medlar, almond and American mountain ash trees. Several rows of vines, enhancing the area, provide a small harvest. Meadows alternate with woods. The unobstructed view from the parklands stretches over the undulating landscape with its numerous trees, typical of this section of the French department of Vienne.
The stateliness of these premises remains intact and their authenticity unchanged. A sort of balance between the tower, the dovecote, the residence and the outbuildings has come into existence over the centuries. The privacy of the manor house progressively dissipates through the courtyards, the garden and the parklands towards the wooded valleys of the Upper Poitou region. The restoration of the property, carried out in accordance with good trade practices, makes it ideal for both a family home and a business project putting the harmony within its walls to good use.
