A traditional French farmhouse which has been lovingly restored to create a fine family home and/or sought-after rental property. The property sleeps 12 and has a swimming pool, gardens and huge covered terrace. It is only 25 minutes from La Rochelle airport, Ile de Re and beaches.
The house consists of a spacious open-plan living/dining and kitchen area. It has 5 bedrooms (3 with ensuite bathrooms) and an additional family bathroom. Upstairs is a massive games room with satellite tv, snooker table and an extra sofa-bed for surprise guests.
Outside is a 9ft x 4ft heated pool with large paved area for 12 sun loungers. The pool is fenced off in accordance with French law. Additionally, there is a large lawn, children's swings and a sandpit with the scent of lavender everywhere. The sloping roof provides a vast shady area with exposed stone wall for eating, barbecuing, playing table-tennis or relaxing when the sun is too hot... perfect for outdoor living.
The house is in the heart of the Marais Poitevin with an abundance of rivers and streams on the doorstep. Located 1km from a bustling village with baker, butcher, pharmacy, bar/tabac, restaurant and doctor.
ABOUT THE AREA
The house is in the heart of the Marais Poitevin - sometimes called the Green Venice because of the hundreds of rivers and streams that criss-cross the area. Every village has its own port from where you can take boats and walk or cycle along the water's edge. And it's only 25 minutes to the chic town of La Rochelle and the magical Ile de Re with its charming villages, harbours, golden beaches and oyster farms. Other transport links are also good - you are 20 minutes from the TGV at Niort, easily accessible from the A10 and A83 and only 3 hours from Saint-Malo.
