You’re tucked into a quiet, unassuming backstreet and hidden behind imposing walls. The big house presides over all: five bedrooms with modern walk-in showers in a white stone annex, a cobbled courtyard, a pool and parkland to stroll around.
Breakfast is served in a little poolside bistro just for you – homemade jams, cakes, honey from the hives and eggs or charcuterie on request. Julie can make you dinners of her husband’s beef and local cheese, or lunch baskets for exploring the marshes of the Vienne. When it pours, stoke the fires and borrow books and games.
Families will love the two upstairs bedrooms and Julie’s three young children are happy to make friends. Visit vineyards, walnut presses, hire punts to glide along the rivers or bikes for leisurely pedalling.
