This is your property ?


In an idyllic setting, on a meandering stretch of river, this lovingly and tastefully restored property offers all that is best of rural France. The large ground-floor Gîte is part of the old village Priory, and retains many original features, including a very attractive exterior. The Studio near-by offers smaller but very comfortable accommodation for one or two people. The large gardens and orchard slope away from the property, affording lovely views across the surrounding riverbanks and meadows.
