Such a fabulous setting: sweeping lawns leading gently down to the river, century-old trees standing guard. On a wooded hill in this rolling landscape stands a turretted manor house, and around it, four gites beautifully created from a cluster of old buildings. All have private gardens for lazing around in, you can roam the grounds, swim in the river, and a second pool is being planned (the existing one is for B&B guests only). Choose between the 17th-century ‘L’Orangerie’ with huge elegant windows and state-of-the-art kitchen or ‘La Petite Maison’ with a covered terrace and a sweet river view. Or ‘La Miellerie’ (split into two) which, thanks to its honey-making history, comes with factory-size rooms; beehives were made here, honey processed, and big windows pull in the views. Everywhere, style, elegance and wonderful furnishings chosen by Marie, whose warmth and charm will seduce you. Within reach, Futuroscope, Poitiers, and the Brenne regional park, its numerous lakes resplendent with birds. Come with a party and take over the whole place.
