This old winemaking farm has been converted into a stylish B&B by Matthieu and his partner Damien. The ground floor of the barn was turned into the spacious cooking and eating area, and the mezzanine sitting area is stocked with books and games.
Matthieu is a passionate pastry chef and unsurprisingly, breakfast is amazing – breads, pastries, jams, yogurts, cakes and biscuits (everything homemade) plus local juices, cheese and hams. He’ll happily whip you up a simple lunch or dinner using seasonal produce, or you can stroll to a nearby brewery, which has its own restaurant – there are tours at 4pm every day.
You’re a 20-minute drive from historic Poitiers, with its magnificent Romanesque church and museums of both art and history. Kids will love Futuroscope theme park, a ten-minute drive, and the Vallée des Singes primate park, 45 minutes away.
