This is your property ?


We are doing a special price on the house this year, because 3 of the neighbouring houses are being renovated and, to be honest, the area can look like a builder's yard at times! However, if you are looking for a cheap holiday, or just want a comfortable base to explore the area, then this may suit you.

The house itself is typically French, set in a small hamlet just outside Puy-de-Serre, in the middle of the countryside. All the peace and quiet you could need, but within a few miles of shops, bars and some fine restaurants and within an hour's drive of beautiful sandy beaches. It is about 150 years old, but nicely refurbished with exposed hardwood beams downstairs and exposed roof timbers upstairs.

Living/dining room with wood burning fire, three armchairs and a sofa bed. There is also a hi fi that will play directly from your mp3 player.
Kitchen - eqipped with cutlery, crockery, pots and pans etc., sink, cooker, washing machine, fridge, microwave, electric kettle, ironing facilities, and storage cupboards
Bedroom 1 with a chest of drawers and single fold away bed
Bathroom with shower, bath and wc

Landing with chest of drawers
Bedroom 2 with double bed, wardrobe, bedside table and chest of drawers
Bedroom 3 with two single beds, wardrobe, bedside table and chest of drawers

At the back across an alley is an outbuilding, where there is a full size table tennis table. At the end of the alley there is also a garage (though it may test your driving skill to get in it!)

Location & area

The cottage is just outside the quiet village of Puy de Serre.

Within 5 miles is the medieval town of Vouvant, said to be one of the prettiest villages in France, with it's 11th Century church and the Melusine Tower and ramparts. The town is home to a community of artists and their studios where you can invariably find all kinds of exhibitions of painting, scupture or photography.

Also within 5 miles are St-Hilaire-de-Voust (where a meal at the Lion d'Or is a must) and Foussais Payré where you can find shops and another good restaurant.

Fontenay le Comte, the old capital city, is within 12 miles and has all the amenities and facilities associated with large towns, very good shopping facilities, supermarkets, restaurants and tourism office.

La Chataigneraie is a 10 minute drive away and has a variety of shops, bars, a monthly market and two supermarkets.
